Now it looks like the Bears coaching staff is moving to more comprehensive approaches. That was evident during Friday’s camp rehearsals. The defense wore the scouting team jerseys, which means they were operating from a specific look the Bears expect to see from their opponents this year. Doing this in less than two weeks at camp is unusual. Beat authors Adam Jahns and Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic have admitted it’s the earliest they’ve ever seen it happen. Getsy explained while pressed why he was doing this.
This is a simple but important comment.
It shows that the Bears coaching staff is already looking forward to what’s coming this season. Most important of all is how seriously they take NFC North games. They know that division determines the success or failure of the regular season more than anything else in the NFL. The Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings, their two biggest rivals, run 3-4 defenses. It makes perfect sense for you to take offense against those looks as often as possible.
It will also be managed by other opponents such as the New York Giants, Miami Dolphins and Atlanta Falcons. These seven games will likely see the Bears align 3-4. Seven games can change the course of the season, especially if the team enters it unprepared.
Luke Getsy has a plan for Fields, and it’s slowly unfolding.
This may seem unusual to outsiders. Of course he has a plan. He is a coach. This is what they are supposed to have. they do not understand. They haven’t lived through the past four years since Nagy has died. It became clear several times during that time that the former coach had no real plan for the midfielders. The lack of preparation during those years was appalling and a big reason why offense is consistently ranked among the worst of the NFL teams.
It’s already clear that Luke Getsy is much better prepared for this job than Nagy was. Having extensive experience in many different crimes plays a big role in this. He has seen how other members of the coaching staff are moving towards developing a central quarterback. Now he is applying these lessons to Fields, and the first signs are positive.
The young QB already seems more straightforward and effective.
There will be bumps in the road ahead. Learning a new offense takes time. Errors occur. The goal is to reduce them steadily so that the good far outweighs the bad. Getsy is on top of everything, and it’s something to get excited about.
