Bears offense to have similar feel to Chiefs

The Bears took Matt Nagy out of his job as the Chiefs offensive coordinator in order to make him their new head coach, but they aren’t taking all of the Chiefs out of Nagy.

Nagy told Dan Pompei of The Athletic that he estimates the offense in Chicago will have a 70–80 percent similarity to the one in Kansas City.

“It will be different in some regards, which is only fair to our coaches on offense and the ideas they have,” Nagy said. “But the identity is going to be the same. It will feel very similar to Kansas City’s. We’re in the lab now. That’s the fun part. All the coaches are giving their ideas and thoughts. Coach [Andy Reid] always said he had 51 percent of the say. So ultimately, he had final say. Now I have that. There are plays I liked that Coach [Reid] didn’t like, so now those plays are in.”

Fantasy Impact: 

There has been some hype around the Bears offense this offseason. The key will be the progression of Trubisky, of course. But based on the names listed above, there is certainly some proven talent heading into the 2018 season.
