Following Sunday’s victory over the Rams, Matt Nagy has reportedly developed a brand-new package which would feature QB Mitch Trubisky, attempting to throw forward passes to players lined up on the outside of the field, known as “wide receivers.” These players would run in paths designed to help them find spaces in the defense thus making it easier to catch the passes.
“We’ve seen it all this year,” said Nagy. “We’ve seen guards catching touchdowns, running backs passing for TDs, and even defensive lineman rushing for them. But it’s been a very long time since anybody in the NFL has utilized the forward pass to connect QBs and receivers.”
Look for the Bears to try this strategy at least once against Green Bay next Sunday, but don’t get used to it: This play is merely experimental.
