(670 The Score) Former Bears running back Matt Forte called for the firing of coach Matt Nagy, his offensive staff and general manager Ryan Pace after Chicago collapsed in a 34-30 loss to Detroit on Sunday afternoon at Soldier Field, where the Lions used two touchdowns in a 41-second span in the final three minutes to erase a late 10-point deficit.
“Just throw the whole offense away … Coaches included!” Forte tweeted.
He had more thoughts to share after the Bears fell to 5-7 with their sixth straight loss.
“Oh and the GM … football starts in the trenches bruh,” Forte wrote. “Everybody knows that!”
Nagy is 25-19 in the regular season in his Bears tenure. After Chicago went 12-4 and won the NFC North in 2018, it dropped to 8-8 and missed the playoffs in 2019.
Pace was hired to lead the Bears’ football operation in 2015. They’ve made the playoffs just once in his tenure, which also marks the only time the Bears have had a winning season under Pace’s leadership.
Forte played for the Bears from 2008-'15. He's second in franchise history in rushing yards behind the late, great Walter Payton.
"I’ve played on some awful teams but man ... y’all deserve better," Forte said of the Bears on Twitter.
