Bears’ Matt Nagy praises Khalil Mack: He’s ‘on another level right now’

first_img Rams’ Aaron Donald on slow start to 2019: ‘I’ve got to get myself going’ “He’s on another level right now,” coach Matt Nagy said (via the team’s website). “He affects every single play. It doesn’t matter if he makes the play or not, he affects it. Every game I’ve watched this year already so far, he dominates. Whether it’s getting a holding call or going after the football, there are turnovers that are occurring. He’s allowing other guys to play well too.”The rest of the Bears’ coaching staff agrees with Nagy, adding that it’s impressive how athletic he is on the field. Related News Ever since the Bears traded for Khalil Mack in 2018, his presence has been felt both on and off the field.After three games this season, Mack leads the Bears with three sacks and three forced fumbles. He has made the Bears’ defense some of the most formidable players opponents face this season. Melvin Gordon activated by Chargers, reportedly will have limited role vs. Dolphins Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey with team, might play vs. Broncos “Through the course of three ballgames and the amount of plays that he’s played, a regular human being, regular football player would be [involved in] 40 to maybe 50 percent on plays whether he had a tackle on it or an assist because he wasn’t at the point of attack,” defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano said. “He’s in the low 80 percentile, which is off the charts.”The team is 2-1 this so far this season, with their only loss coming from a 10-3 game against the Packers in Week 1. In fact, the Bears have allowed just five total touchdowns this season. Despite being a force on the field, Nagy said Mack’s persona is “chill.”“He just does his thing and he leads by his actions,” he said. “He’s not a rah-rah guy, but he has fun. He’s focused. He finishes every single rep in practice. It doesn’t matter where the ball goes. If it’s a pass down the field 30 yards, he turns around and he runs. He does it every play. That’s the practice part. I don’t see all these guys all the time in here when they’re in the building, I just know that from what I do see he’s pretty chill.”Mack and the Bears will face the Vikings in an NFC North showdown Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET.last_img read more
