Matt Nagy on Bears' offensive system: 'It will feel very similar to Kansas City' | CBS Sports

"It will be different in some regards, which is only fair to our coaches on offense and the ideas they have," Nagy said, per The Athletic. "But the identity is going to be the same. It will feel very similar to Kansas City's. We're in the lab now. That's the fun part. All the coaches are giving their ideas and thoughts. Coach [Andy Reid] always said he had 51 percent of the say. So ultimately, he had final say. Now I have that. There are plays I liked that Coach [Reid] didn't like, so now those plays are in."

Kansas City Chiefs

Can Mitch Morse and Eric Fisher rebound from down years in 2017?

The only noticeable weakness on the Chiefs roster comes along the offensive line. Morse dealt with injury last season and didn't play up to the high standard he set for himself early in his pro career. Fisher had a down year in 2017 as well. With a new quarterback set to take the reins of the offense and defenses primed to key on limiting Kareem Hunt, Kansas City could face some challenges up front if Morse and Fisher can't bounce back. Fisher signed an extension in 2016 ... he's not going anywhere for the time being. Morse is in the final year of his rookie contract though. If he remains the liability he was in 2017 or can't stay healthy, center will be one of the biggest needs the Chiefs will look to fill in the 2019 draft.
