But ask Nagy about in-season football evaluations and it might get you somewhere.
The reigning Coach of the Year met the media at his second NFL combine Wednesday, and here are five of the more interesting takeaways:
The run game
Nagy reiterated what he said often during the season, that the onus lies first and foremost on him and his coaching staff to figure out the NFL's 27th-ranked ground game in terms of yards per carry. He officially put to bed the Bears' not-so-seriously kicking the tires on Kareem Hunt and basically conceded that he, his staff and Jordan Howard are still in the discovery period of their relationship.
"We were all figuring out together, including Jordan, how we're going to make this thing go," said Nagy, admitting a volume runner like Howard fitting into a diverse offense like Nagy's requires continued adjustments for all parties.
Nagy also briefly pulled back the curtain to shed some light on his RB profile in the Bears scheme and how there's an interesting mix in this draft class but perhaps not a lot of complete backs.
"In this offense, you want to be able to have a guy that has really good vision that can make guys miss," Nagy said. "And at the same time, there's that balance of being a hybrid being able to make things happen in the pass game too, but yet to where you're not one-dimensional. That's not easy.
"There are a lot of backs in this draft right now that are one-dimensional. There are some that are hybrids, and there are some that are really just scat guys."
Perhaps the convergence of the Bears' precious draft capital — an NFL-low five picks, none in the top 85 — and Nagy's view that this class isn't loaded with complete backs provides Howard a new lease on life? Or perhaps not.
