So instead of going 6-11 like last year, they'll be 6-11 but it'll be a smooth 6-11.

Bears off season hype quotes age like gas station sushi in the Chicago sun in June.

Now only if they told Parkey that the ball has to go between the uprights, not hit them.

Wow, a guy no one heard of (so much so that subby couldn't spell his name despite the whole article being about what he thinks) who has been told he's the #1 receiver by the new guy really likes how the new guy handles things. What a surprise.

Coach Nagy, what are you up to this offseason?

Well, since Allen Robinson left he kind of is their #1 WR.  He's fairly well known as a FFB WR mostly as a boom or bust guy since the Bears were down a lot they had to do a LOT of throwing.

Wait, so the guy who is listed as Justin Fields' only proven receiver in every article about how Justin Fields has "no proven receivers except..." is someone no one has heard of? I get that the Bears became even more irrelevant under Pace and Nagy so he may not be a national name, but someone had to catch Fields' highlight reel passes* and that someone was Mooney.

/* that isn't to say Fields never threw a terrible pass or had bad games - which he did because he was a rookie and was playing under Nagy's, uh, unique style of coaching

And to add, he's probably at best a WR2 option, but still a very productive player.

This is unbelievable!

I can't believe a man that thinks the Greatest Offensive Guru to ever offensively guru was clueless on how to guru! I mean, Mooney is WR1 on a roster that's barely above practice squad quality and Nagy is... *checks notes*... a QB coach for his old mentor. As you can see, clearly Nagy has moved on to great things. And I wouldn't be surprised to see him selling me a used car, or assistant managing Kroger in the next couple of years.

I'm simply pointing out that, as mentioned above, this is a pointless "things are changing for the better" nonsense article that happens every time a coach is replaced.

Some people benefit, some people don't. The ones that do are happy with the change immediately; the ones that don't will have to actually have results before they change their mind.

/yes, the Bears haven't mattered since Lovie Smith was there and a Bears WR hasn't mattered, ever (counting Devin Hester as a KR/PR since he, too, was irrelevant as a WR).
//not to say they haven't had above-average WRs in that time. Just that they haven't been relevant while they were Bears

BTW, it's not limited to coaching football players. This is true when EVERY leader is fired/replaced. There's no one who is universally reviled - currently it looks like about 1/3 of people would support pretty much the worst human beings imaginable.

What's your definition of "mattered"? The Bears are obviously a middling team, but Allen Robinson had seasons of around 100 catches, over 1100 YDS, and 6+ TDs each season in '19 and '20.

Hardly the definition of "irrelevant" WR.

Agreed this link was silly and featured predictable quotes, but most people who follow the league know who Darnell Mooney is.

I agree, but take the double doink away, and how many people remember him for doinks? I truly don't know.

The double doink thing was troublesome/hilarious than the one game where he hit the crossbars 4 times (again.... In a single game). I don't think you can even practice that kind of weird happenstance. Most kickers got the crossbars once or twice a season.

The only reason you know any of them is that their BEST WRs have been good WR2s in FFB. I feel like I shouldn't have to explain that FFB is not football, and that 1000 yards is not significant anymore.

What's funny to me is Bears fans getting upset at the idea they've never had a WR (or QB) of significance. It used to be part of their identity ("yeah, we always have to play great defense and run the hell out of the ball, and we're really good at that") but now everyone has to get all defensive about it.

Pointing out that the Bears have never had a passing offense anyone's afraid of or talent that was among the tops in the league is simply a truth. It's not an attack. And it's embarrassing to cape up with "he had 1000 yards and four TDS!" That's "meh, he's OK" production for someone playing 17 games.

Nagy wasn't just a terrible coach. He was a terrible OC as well, which was the biggest problem. He was supposed to bring some fancy offensive scheme to help the team. Instead his offense was a dumpster fire. Every game you'd see the same things - multiple receivers in the same location and timing, which means one defender can basically account for all of them; nonexistent run schemes; blocking packages that can't hold up long enough for the routes the receivers are running; just nonsensical garbage guaranteeing failure for the QB and the rest of the offense. He didn't have a real offense - he was just holding Peyton's jockstrap and got credit for the results.
