Breaking News: Matt Nagy Is Still Trying Too Hard
I want to like Matt Nagy, I really fucking do, but shit like this makes it next to impossible. First off, you know for a fact he did this himself because he didn't want to take the chance of having an interior decorator coming in and sending his play sheets out across the league. Problem is Matt, no one's afraid of bullet screens to Tarik Cohen anymore when Mitch is afraid to throw the ball 20 yards down the field to a wide open Allen Robinson.
If you saw this with just about any other Coach in the league, you probably wouldn't bat an eye. Probably would call it a Football Guy move, matter of fact. But with Nagy it feels like he's playing house and impersonating something Gruden would do. I'm sure Gruden has done something similar to this during his time in football, at this point, I wouldn't be surprised if he had a piece of Spider 2-Y Banana inspired art hanging about the fireplace. But when it comes to being a football guy, you either are one or your not. In Matt Nagy's case, he fooled us into thinking he was one for a year, and now it just comes off as forced. It's almost like he's constantly trying to prove that he's smarter than everyone, and instead of doing that how about you run the damn football and figure out whatever Napoleon complex is going on in your mind because this team still has the potential to be dangerous.
Take a phrase out of your own book Matt, and believe. All you've gotta do is believe.
Here's to hoping Ryan Pace and co. don't fuck up too badly tonight
