NFC Notes: Bears, Cardinals, Rams


Bears QB Chase Daniel took the blame for the team’s loss to the Giants on Sunday.

“It was wet but that’s not an excuse,” Daniel said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “As an offense, especially as a quarterback, your No. 1 job is to take care of the football. And I didn’t do that today. I let my team down. I’ll be the first one to say that.

Meanwhile, Bears HC Matt Nagy said he “absolutely love[s] this team” and is focused on helping them bounce back.

“I absolutely love this team,” Nagy said, per Chris Emma. “I love where we’re at. This is life, man. How are you going to rebound back from it? Are you going to sulk or are you going to pick it back up, go practice, go play and learn? That’s what we’re going to do.


  • Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the entire Cardinals’ organization will be reviewed after this season and everything is still on the table at this time, including keeping GM Steve Keim and HC Steve Wilks.
  • However, Rapoport says that it will likely come down to how the team plays over the remainder of the season.


  • Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports that NFL teams are “looking very closely” at Rams QBs coach Zac Taylor, who is drawing a considerable buzz in rival front offices.
  • La Canfora explains that the crop of coordinator candidates is considered to be shallow, which is why Taylor is expected to merit interview from several teams.
  • According to La Canfora, Taylor is viewed very highly by Rams HC Sean McVay, who would love to keep him in the fold if possible. However, McVay won’t hold Taylor back if an opportunity surfaces for him elsewhere.
  • NFL teams would reportedly like to hire Taylor as an offensive coordinator, but it’s possible he draws head-coaching interest, given that teams are looking for “the next McVay.”
