In the locker room Monday night, safety Eddie Jackson broke down the huddle, preaching accountability and criticizing players who ran off the field with their heads down.

“For us, we just got to hold each other accountable,’ Jackson said Monday night. “Offensive side of the guys, our leaders, we got to hold each other accountable on that side of the ball like we would on defense. And it’s that simple.”

Bears coach Matt Nagy liked hearing what Jackson had to say.

“We talk about, ‘Leaders create leaders,’” Nagy said Tuesday. “Well, he’s being a leader after the game at a tough moment where we’re all pretty emotional, we’re all pretty frustrated, we’re all pretty pissed off.”

Jackson admitted frustration with the four-game losing streak Monday night — “We are tired of it; t’s up to us as a team to change it,” he said — but Nagy was impressed that he was blunt with his teammates.

“Regardless of what side you play on, with him being a leader on defense, I think it speaks to him to be able to talk to our team,” Nagy said. “And then specifically to our offense, and say, ‘Listen, here’s where we’re at: we got your back.’

“But there’s an accountability for us to play better, specifically on offense.’”
