Chicago Bears are Putting All Hope on Mitchell Trubisky

 

Despite all the great decisions made by general manager Ryan Pace, the Chicago Bears are in an all-or-nothing state going into the 2018 NFL season. The main issue affecting the outcome for the Bears next season is how much quarterback Mitchell Trubisky has improved during this offseason.

Trubisky only played in 5 games during the 2017-2018 NFL season. Throughout these games, his play style was very inconsistent. He had a completion percentage of 59.4% with 7 interceptions and 5 fumbles. He had a quarterback rating of 28.5 which is measured on a scale of 0-100. However, these terrible statistics do not do justice to his true playing style and the situation he was in. In the 2017 season, the offensive line for the Bears was not the best. The receiver core was second rate and injured for the most part. Trubisky had very little to work with on the field along with the poor coaching of John Fox. Trubisky had many amazing plays during the season that showed that he was up to the role of starting quarterback, but had enough bad statistics to have his ability be questioned. 

During this offseason, the Bears have given Trubisky a new head coach in Matt Nagy. Nagy has a system set up for Trubisky to succeed and will improve Trubisky’s game as he did with Alex Smith. The Bears have also given him strong receivers in Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, and Anthony Miller. He has gotten a great tight end in Trey Burton also. Trubisky has a stronger offensive line with James Daniels at center and Kyle Long at guard. Trubisky has been given a team that any truly talented quarterback can succeed with.

There is an underlying factor here that will rest on Trubisky’s shoulders going into this offseason. The Bears have trusted Mitchell Trubisky as their franchise quarterback ever since they moved up one spot to draft him. They have built him the team he needs. If Trubisky fails and cannot deliver the Bears the great play that is expected of him, then there is no backup plan. 

The Chicago Bears are putting all their hope on Mitchell Trubisky for the 2018 NFL season. Can he rise to the challenge?

I've edited some of this article, but no mention was made of the OC Biscuit played for last season, which I believe has a lot to do with the end statistics Biscuit put up.  That being said, the author is not wrong imo.  All hope lies on the young mans shoulders and should he not perform or gawd forbid get hurt, there really is no back up plan.  The rest of the QBs in camp are not going to step in and carry anything, depth at the QB position is a bit of a concern.

I have all the faith in the world in the kid. I believe he's very athletic with a good arm and has the drive,determination, and work ethic to be damn good and if we are to believe what Alex Smith and others have said about Nagy we have the right guy to mold him. Not saying he's the 2nd coming of Tom Brady but time will tell what he will become and imho he could be special.

I think the statement by the Author of "The poor Coaching of John Fox" meant not only him but his entire offensive staff. The back up plan as of now is Chase Daniels, a career backup, who when given the chance could not win the starting job over the like of Foles (Pre-2017 greatness) and Matt Cassel. Do not get me wrong Daniels is a great backup and will help Mitch tremendously. But he is no starter.

This year will be the most interesting to wait for, since the advent of the Trestman regime. Remember how we were all so excited to get the QB Whisperer! A Bears team with an O minded HC! Wow.....but as I said, I am excited to see what happens now. Bears FO, Coaching staff and players are all in on the Biscuit Express! All Aboard!

Biscuit should feel like" a kid in a candy store" with what Pace and coaches have provided him this offseason.

The only thing that looks like it hasn't been provided is an upgrade at a OT spot.

I don't think Harry could pass the physical to suit up at Tackle.

But Harry knows the true recipe for Tackle Pixie Dust, you know, the one that Tice always got wrong?

I trust Heistand will get the best from what he has to work with from his O line.

 

Biscuit being the only egg in the basket at QB is a concern though.  Even if he shows up big time and proves early on he is worth the trade and pick given up for him the Bears are one injury away from being in big trouble.

I think the player with the most to gain from him being there is Leno. We might finally see him take that next step. Massie is what he is, serviceable. I don't see him improving much from where he has been. I suspect this will be his last season as a starter, for the Bears at least.

I think this will change under the direction of Pace/Nagy once our system is established. The reason backup struggle so mightily in Chicago is because even the strters struggled. bottom line Chicagos history for offense and QB development has been shit and near cleveland level of ineptness.
