However preparing the QB to play is just responsibility. Like the Patriots did, the rookie should play and be coached up to be effective and given the offense in doses.???
I don't want to defend Nagy, but he and that Bears defense, dragged Trubisky to the playoffs, twice.in four seasons. Trubisky sucks. And, now, Nagy is stuck playing a rookie who was nowhere near ready to be an NFL starter.
Nagy's got plenty of deficiencies as an NFL head coach, but he's also been saddled with incompetent QB play.
A good runner has it easier because the added dimension if used properly takes pressure away from needing a fully evolved passing game to be effective.
There is a reason some coaches fail with all their young qbs and some succeed with most of them. 90% of how a rookie QBs plays is determined by how well he is cus he’s and how well the scheme is bent for him. Fields would be doing fine here.
