Matt Nagy’s “Be You” mantra applies even when the Bears are 3-5 — and even when it looks like quarterback Mitch Trubisky might not be having much fun.

“We want everybody to be able to let their personalities show,” the Bears head coach said Friday. “When you have things happen the way that they have with us, sometimes as a younger player, younger person, younger coach, whoever you are, sometimes you can let that affect you. I don’t think that’s just [Trubisky]. That’s everybody, really. That’s really not just him.”

The Bears were cognizant enough of Trubisky’s body language that they had him watch the television tape of the team’s home loss to the Chargers to see how he could improve.

The key for all this players is “to make sure that you don’t try to be somebody else,” Nagy said.

“You just be yourself,” Nagy said. “That’s what I think has been for all of us really the biggest challenge is making sure that when all this stuff goes down, you realize that no matter what we’re doing, if you win, it hides a lot of stuff that we might be nitpicking at.”
