Head Coach Matt Nagy Was Dropping Dimes at Practice (VIDEO)

Chicago Bears

Mitch Trubisky, Chase Daniel, and Tyler Bray better be looking over their respective shoulders because their head coach can definitely throw the ball over them mountains:


Matt Nagy was throwing passes to receivers in Monday’s training camp practice in Bourbonnais. And judging by the video shared by the Chicago Bears’ official Instagram page, it looks like the ex-quarterback turned first-year head coach can still wing it.

Nagy’s day under center garnered some mixed results:

Good to see coach bounce back from some tough times by shaking off an interception, dropping back, and successfully throwing a deep ball to a rookie wide receiver. That’s the kind of perseverance you want to see from your team’s signal caller.

And as for Wims, catching your head coach’s deep ball and turning it into a touchdown is certainly one way to catch the coaching staff’s eye. Though, in the case of Kyle Fuller, maybe he could have eased up off the gas and let coach has his time to shine. On the other hand, I like seeing that Fuller was showing no mercy out there. Now, if he can take that onto the gridiron in the regular season and turn some of those pass breakups into interceptions.

If Nagy were to keep this up, he could probably make an argument to start the team’s final preseason game at the end of the month. Every team has an emergency quarterback. For the Bears, it’s their head coach.

Oh, and remember: Back in ’82, he used to be able to throw a pig-skin a quarter-mile.
