There has been a lot of criticism about the Bears’ offensive game plan in their 34-14 loss to the Rams on Sunday Night Football, where Chicago’s downfield passing attack was nonexistent.
The Bears pounded the ball with running back David Montgomery and relied on quick, short passes from quarterback Andy Dalton. Dalton’s longest pass attempt was 16 yards, and he didn’t complete a pass over 10 yards. In fact, only 5 of his 38 attempts were for 10 yards or more.
There’s been plenty of frustration from fans. But there was a quote from wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, who signed with the Bears this offseason, about the Bears’ approach against Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey that was quite telling. In fact, you could say this was a direct shot at Nagy.
