Trubisky finally speaks
0

Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky spoke publicly Tuesday evening for the first time since coach Matt Nagy was hired Jan. 8. And by the sound of it, his excitement has been building this whole time.

The second-year quarterback phoned into “Bears All-Access” on WSCR-AM (670) from his offseason training location in Southern California. Nagy, the Chiefs offensive coordinator the last two seasons, and his staff are tasked with maximizing Trubisky’s potential as the franchise quarterback.

“Just watching the Kansas City offense last year, what Coach Nagy brought — I was able to meet him through the draft process last year, and we really connected,” Trubisky said on the radio. “I was really excited when I heard he got the job here. I know Chicago is going to have a warm welcome (for) him, and he’s going to bring amazing offensive ideas to the table. He’s just a great offensive mind, and he put a great offensive staff together for us. They’re going to be great teachers.

“I think (the Chiefs) utilized an athletic quarterback. A lot of things they do in their offense fit my strengths, and we also have a lot of pieces within our offense that will create explosive plays that the Kansas City offense ran. So it is a very exciting time. … The guys we have coming in, the coaches, they’re just very creative.”

During the 12-minute interview, Trubisky sounded as loose as he has at any time since the Bears drafted him second overall last April. Perhaps it was the SoCal offseason vibes or his increased comfort as the Bears’ most important player and leader.

“I love the responsibility that I’ve been given,” Trubisky said, “and I think that has been earned through just hard work and dedication and showing my teammates what I’m capable of.”

*****

After Trubisky mentioned that receiver Kevin White is with him in California this week to throw together, Joniak mentioned the picture of White that is currently circulating on social media. In the photo, White is flexing his chiseled upper body.

“I’m not trying to boost his confidence more than it already is,” Trubisky joked. “I said, ‘Hey, put a shirt on buddy. We have work to do.’ ”

*****

Trubisky said offensive linemen Kyle Long, Cody Whitehair and Hroniss Grasu have visited him, and that he is trying to “drag” other teammates out to California.

In about a month, though, Trubisky and all his Bears teammates will report to Halas Hall and begin working with Nagy and the new staff to learn the new offense.

“I didn’t think I was going to come on and talk this much, but you guys got me juiced,” Trubisky said. “They said, ‘They want you on Bears radio.’ I said, ‘That’s right. I miss my Bears people!’ I’m in Cali, and I actually see a couple of Bears fans here and there walking around, but I miss my people, man. I’m ready to get back. I’m ready to get back to work.”

I am trying so hard not to get too excited by MT... but the more time goes on, the more I really believe the Bears finally have a solid QB to build around.

Also the first time in decades they actually seem serious about putting a capable staff together to build a team. up and coming, innovative coaches, not mediocre retreads, which imo has been the achilles heel for the most part.

Congratulations Cal you've finally got me to drink some of your kool aid I just hope it doesn't end up being tainted later on down the road. I like the kid a lot.Sure seems to have the right attitude and an unrelenting work ethic to be the best. Fingers crossed that we finally have a true franchise qb which I feel we will/do as long as he gets surrounded with the right pieces around him.

I really hate that quote......... a pessimist can never be proven wrong because they always couch their whining with a disclaimer saying they "hope they are wrong".  Emotionally they never take their lumps if you will.  Team sport pessimism in most cases is a preemptive defense mechanism imo deployed by the weak of heart.

I really hate people who come down on the side of optimism. They always have the disclaimer of "I was hoping for a different result this year" and "We were so close in so many games!"  But I am a true fan, they say.

Hope and $2.50 will get you a cup of coffee!

I want to see my favorite team win and win convincingly every year. Except no excuses! And make no excuses for their failures either! Other teams seem to be able to turn their teams around without 4 re-organizations and the associated re-builds. Why not Chicago?
