Outside linebacker Robert Quinn # 94 of the Chicago Bears storms passerby during the first half of a game against the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium on October 10, 2021 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Bears defeated the Raiders 20-9.

Chicago Bears pass ruser Robert Quinn can likely face a fine from the NFL later this week, but don’t count on him to apologize for speaking up.

After the Bears lost 17-9 to the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football, Quinn was asked for his thoughts on Bears head coach Matt Nagy, who was convicted of unsportsmanlike conduct in the first half, and responded with brutally honest criticism Acting crew at the game. The Bears had nine penalties for 91 yards in Week 15, including five personal fouls.

« Honestly, some of those calls are starting to get a little crazy, » said Quinn in the aftermath. “These referees seem to be controlling the game a little too much. So when a game is clean and they throw a flag for something they thought they could change a game just with a flag … let the boys play ball. If that were a few years ago, half of this stuff wouldn’t even be mentioned. But now you have so many of these stupid rules (that you are around a referee (and) can change them anytime.

Quinn’s comment about referee review rather than « our coaches » was a direct reference to the between The penalty imposed on Nagy in the first and second quarters. Nagy had been animated by the reigning crew for a personal foul they had called two games earlier against Deon Bush for unnecessary roughness, and punished the safety of the bears for a hit in the Viking Tight-end Tyler Conklin’s head, of which many – including Nagy – argued vehemently, should have gone unpunished. « I saw what happened, » said Nagy in the aftermath when asked about the ordeal.  » Our boys are fighting their asses to get off the field and I saw what happened, so I gave my opinion. And I don’t regret it. « 

As you can imagine Well, Nagy had no nice words for the officers caught in his anger. Referee Scott Novak told pool reporter Patrick Finley in aftermath that « the flag was thrown when he began to use inappropriate language to the official. » will not repeat what has been said. But if it crosses a line and it’s inappropriate then we’ll throw a flag. ”

One of the least surprising things about Monday’s final Pro Bowl voting results was that Bears outside linebacker Robert Quinn for the NFC List has been selected. While Quinn has not been selected for the Pro Bowl for consecutive seasons in 2013 and ’14, he was downright dominant for Chicago in 2021, posting 16 sacks in the first 15-game season, so making it without an All-Pro Game destroyer Khalil Mack on the other side of the line.

Quinn did particularly well during the Bears’ three games in November, scoring 5.5 sacks, 14 tackles, six quarterback hits and two forced fumbles, and won the NFC defensive player of the month. He continued to wreak havoc in December with five sacks in his first three elite-level games, including two each in the losses to Green Bay and Minnesota.

Quinn only needs three sacks to reach a career record that he achieved during his 2013 all-pro season for what was then the St. Louis Rams. He’s also only two sacks away from breaking the Richard Dents Bears franchise record (17.5), which was set in the 1984 season.
