NFC Notes: Bears, Packers, Vikings

Bears

Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reported Bears HC Matt Nagy addressed the report that he was about to be fired with the team on Tuesday but did so in a way that left many players unconvinced about his future.

Sources tell Biggs Nagy didn’t address the report head-on which left some players angry. He also said he did have a meeting with ownership that he called “productive” after telling reporters earlier in the day he wasn’t scheduled to meet with ownership this week.

Nagy also canceled all the meetings for the rest of Tuesday afternoon and evening, which is an unusual move given they play the Lions on Thursday in a short week.

The Athletic’s Kevin Fishbain writes that as things stand right now, there is a sense from league sources outside the team building that Bears GM Ryan Pace could return even if Nagy is fired. Fishbain explains ownership values stability and does admire Pace even if the results over his seven seasons have been grim.
