In his press conference discussing the Green Bay Packers game, Chicago Bears head coach had an embarrassing moment, showing again that he shouldn’t be head coach any longer.

Just when we thought things couldn’t get any more embarrassing, Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy said, “Hold my beer,” and showed us how wrong we were.

The Bears, who have now lost six straight games and 17 of their last 20 to the Packers, were actually competitive in the first half of their latest loss. They scored 24 points in the second quarter on their way to a 27-21 halftime lead. It was an incredible feat seeing as Chicago averaged just 16.8 points per game leading up to the game.

Then the second half began and things just fell completely apart. Green Bay outscored the Bears 24-3 in the half and won the game 45-30.

One of the pleasant surprises of the game was how cornerback Jaylon Johnson handled All-World wide receiver Davante Adams. With Johnson covering Adams, he held him to two catches on five targets for 19 yards and a touchdown. When other players covered him, Adams caught all eight of his targets for 102 yards and a touchdown.

The question one would ask when seeing those stats would be “Why did Johnson not cover Adams all game long” right? If you asked that you are very aware of what happened.

Well, the answer, clear to nearly everyone, was that the Packers made adjustments to free up Adams and the Bears had no counter for it. This is what Johnson said after the game.

"A lot of motions. A lot of drag routes, underneath routes. A lot of pick-routes. They switched it up pretty good. They did a lot of things that make covering him very hard."

Johnson admitted that he needed to learn about some of the formations that allowed Adams to move around and find another defender. Once he does learn that, he’ll be a tough cornerback for years to come.

As I said, nearly everyone noticed that Green Bay made in-game adjustments. The Chicago Bears head coach, Matt Nagy, however, didn’t notice anything different. When asked about what the Packers did in the second half, this is what he said.

"I would say, with all due respect, that comment of moving him around, they did the same thing they did in the first half."

In reality, Adams lined up on the outside the entire first half. It was in the second half that he went into motion and came out of the slot, thus avoiding Johnson.

This embarrassment will continue with Nagy at the helm. With him as the head coach for the remainder of the season, the Bears won’t win any games. The Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day game could be his final victory.
