Bears HC Matt Nagy told reporters on Friday that he believes QB Mitch Trubisky will “be fine” after a disappointing game against the Packers.
“He’ll be fine. That’s our job to make sure that he stays up,” Nagy said, via the Chicago Tribune. “We’re all down right now. That was a game where there was a lot of hype to it. It’s a very meaningful game. But at the same time, we have to make sure that we understand that it is Week 1. If he is down, that’s OK. I’d rather him be down than be happy. He’s down. We will look at this game, go through the why parts of how he can get better and how we can get better everywhere on offense. Because we need to be better on offense. And then once we do that, we put that aside and move on to Denver.”
The Packers’ offense managed just 10 points in the season opener on Thursday, but still managed to come out with a win for first-year HC Matt LaFleur.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said after the game that he told LaFleur: “I’m going to be a lot better moving forward.”
“It’s a big deal winning your first NFL game as a head coach, and I’m happy for him,” Rodgers said, via NFL.com. “Obviously, it’s a lot of fun working with him. And I told him, ‘I’m going to be a lot better moving forward.'”
