Everything the Bears have done this off-season has centered around supporting Mitchell Trubisky and giving him a leg to stand on as a potential franchise quarterback. From the hire of Matt Nagy, an innovative and young offensive mind, to completely overhauling their offensive weapons, Chicago has begun to lay out a red carpet of facilitating success for Trubisky.
Of course, for as much as the Bears plan to put Trubisky in a position to succeed, the games still have to be played. Trubisky himself still has to take ownership of his team and develop along a proper trajectory. The simple manner of acquiring quality coaches and talent is auxiliary to the steps Trubisky takes individually as a quarterback. Ultimately, his potential to thrive and take the Bears’ franchise to new heights is on him.
To help break down Trubisky from a pre-draft perspective, during his rookie season, and to set proper expectations, quarterback guru Mark Schofield of Locked On Patriots and Inside The Pylon, joined me for a special Trubisky-centric episode. This is the most important and malleable player the Bears have had in a long time. It’s only natural to take care and nuance as to how to properly evaluate how far he’s come, and where he’s going in Chicago.
