Bears fans showed Matt Nagy the door following second-half collapse vs. Vikings

Matt Nagy’s final game as head coach of the Chicago Bears — a 31-17 loss to the Minnesota Vikings — was a fitting tribute to everything that’s gone right and wrong during his four-year tenure.

The Bears benefited from strong defense and failed to take advantage on offense in the first half, carrying a 14-3 lead heading into the third quarter. But it was a completely different game in the second half as Chicago collapsed and was outscored 28-3.

Nagy made some questionable and infuriating decisions, including failing to hand the ball to running back David Montgomery on fourth-and-1 on three separate occasions. It was a trademark of the things Bears fans have come to know well about Nagy: the offense struggled, the quarterback especially, and he ignored the run game when it mattered.

As everything collapsed around the end of Chicago’s finale against Minnesota, Bears fans were more than ready to show Nagy the door and move forward with a new head coach, yet to be determined.

Not with a bang, but a whimper.

Matt Nagy is just a big dummy and doesn't know any better. See ya, buddy.

…and fourth down play, Pick 6 is how a season and an era may likely end. Weirdly fitting. #Bears

Matt Nagy: “We’re gonna have some fun out there Sunday!”

What Matt Nagy really meant:
If the previous three years weren’t enough, I’m going to show the world in one game how bad my offense is.

What a perfect end to the Matt Nagy era. A pick six by Andy Dalton & another INT pic.twitter.com/KDcQkHAg0o

Now, the only question is what time is Matt Nagy informed his fate, and what happens to Ryan Pace

How many crimes did I commit in my past life to deserve the fate of being a #Bears fan

This game is a perfect emblem to the Matt Nagy coaching era: good start, awful finish. pic.twitter.com/vZPdZDMPHw

It’s a fitting epitaph on Matt Nagy’s Bears coaching career. In a game nearly impossible to lose, when his defense was outstanding, Nagy got his team beat. It’s almost as if he was determined to find a way to seal his own fate?

The implosion is compete. Nagy truly going out like he came in: blowing a halftime lead. #DaBears

Matt Nagy is like a Madden player who keeps running the same plays over and over because it worked one time. But hasn't worked in years.
