Things have not been going well lately for the Bears, but it doesn’t sound like the players are losing any faith in the coaching staff.
The Bears have lost four straight and are 3-5 (more losses than the team’s final 12-4 record last year). Safety Eddie Jackson says the team is still behind the coaching staff during his weekly interview with Mully and Haugh on 670 The Score.
“We are 100% behind our coaches,” Jackson said. “Coach Nagy, man, if people really understand the type of coach coach Nagy is they wouldn’t even question trying to blame him for what’s going on. Coach Nagy is a players’ coach. He listens to us. He does everything for us to make our bodies feel good or help us with practice, help us learn how we feel is best for the team. That’s one thing we love about him.”
What about any solutions to end the four-game skid?
“We just got to come together and fix the problem,” Jackson said. “Like he said, there’s nothing to say, it’s just fix the problem. It’s as simple as that. We love coach Nagy because he takes responsibility for his mistakes so when you see a coach like that that holds himself accountable, as a player it makes you hold yourself and your teammates accountable. We definitely are behind coach Nagy 110%. That’s never going to change. Not at all. That’s not even a question.”
So division in the locker room doesn’t sound like a problem at the moment. The Bears will have to get much better to get into the playoffs either way. Five of the team’s final eight games are against teams with winning records, and three of those games are on the road. There’s not much room for error left.
