Previously, Nagy reported that he was unaware of changes to the timing of the Bears’ annual evaluation process for coaches, which generally concludes after the regular season. He noted the level of effort from his players in what would otherwise be a pointless game Sunday in Seattle.

“One thing that you can always evaluate is the effort of the players,” he said. “You never know [cuál será el resultado]. But you can always judge the effort. We saw it yesterday. … You value that. Indicate who the players are in this organization. They deserve that and they deserve to have the feeling of winning. It’s been a while. When you have a chance to win, you have to enjoy it. And for me personally I am very happy for the players. “

Also Monday, Nagy announced that five players were returning from the reserve / COVID-19 roster: wide receiver Allen Robinson, safety Tashaun Gipson, cornerback Jaylon Johnson, tight end Jesse James and running back Ryan Nall.
