Bears coach Matt Nagy takes blame for offense after Packers loss: 'Three points is ridiculous'

Bears coach Matt Nagy was clearly frustrated with his offense after his team scored just three points against the Packers in its season opener, but he was willing to take most of the blame. 

"Three points is ridiculous," Nagy said.

The Bears fell 10-3 and finished with just 254 total yards, averaging just 3.9 yards per play and going 3-for-15 on third-down conversions. They also faced 10 costly penalties for a loss of 107 yards that only made matters worse.

"Obviously unacceptable," Nagy told reporters after the loss. "Starts with me, so this — I just told the guys in there, this is not who we are. I was proud of our defense. I thought they played their a— off tonight. Offensively, not good enough. And we're going to fix it. Our guys know that."

"We have a locker room of high-character people. That's why we bring these guys in because what they do is, they don't point fingers. The defense doesn't point fingers and say the offense should have played better. That's not how we roll."

One glaring concern for the Bears was quarterback Mitch Trubisky, who struggled as he completed 26 of 45 passes for 228 yards with no touchdowns and a red zone interception. He said after the game that he let a lot of his teammates down and could've been better, but Nagy admitted that he didn't help Trubisky enough.

"I've got to help him. And then we've got to get the run game going," Nagy said. "That's 15 rushes in 65 plays, you're down 7-3, but we — again, that's something that we're going to as a staff get back together and we're going to figure out, OK, what are we doing as coaches and how can we get better to help these kids out."

Chicago's defense did manage to limit Green Bay to just 213 total yards and 10 points,

but its offense missed out on key opportunities, including scoring a touchdown to tie the score in the fourth quarter. Nagy reiterated he has to do a better job preparing his team.

“This is a test,” Nagy said. “It was a frustrating game, and we couldn’t get into a rhythm offensively. We have to be better. I have to be better.”

The Bears' next challenge will be Sept. 15 against the Broncos in Week 2.
