Twitter is roasting Matt Nagy for this Justin Fields comment originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
That means Fields is finally getting reps with the first team offense in practice and it’s turning some heads, like head coach Matt Nagy’s.
During a Friday press conference, Nagy had this to say.
“We’re learning too. Like this week, him getting all the reps in practice, there’s things that we’re seeing that maybe we didn’t see in the first two weeks because he wasn’t getting those (first-team) reps,” Nagy said.
Nagy is trying to say he is seeing Fields grow and flourish and he’s excited.
Fans are running to Twitter to roast Nagy and add a bit of #ToldYaSo because fans have been clamoring for Fields to start and get those first-team reps. Nagy’s admission that they’re seeing things in Fields now because of it plays right into their hands.
And Twitter let it be known.
Why do “football guys” always seem like the dumbest people in charge of football teams?
Like, You’re just now learning that Justin Fields is good when he also plays with other good players? Whata concept! https://t.co/DjWC9kiqFM

Matt Nagy: “There’s things we’re seeing that maybe we didn’t see in the first two weeks because [Justin Fields] wasn’t getting more reps.”
He does know he could’ve just given Fields more starting reps to begin with, right? #Bears
