Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky went from leading his team to a division title and being named a pro-bowl QB, all the way to competing to keep his starting QB job, all in the span of one season. Everyone was expecting Mitch Trubisky to take a step forward in 2019 but instead he regressed and had just 17 TDs to 10 INTs and the Bears finished just 8-8 and missed the playoffs. Now, the Bears brought in QB Nick Foles (via trade) to compete with Trubisky for the Bears starting QB job.
All this must certainly have made for a stressful offseason for Mitch Trubisky but such is life in the NFL. He had a press conference with the media a few days ago and talked about what he has done during the offseason to improve and make sure he wins the starting QB job. He stated that he wants to prove everybody wrong and that his critics have motivated him more than ever this offseason. Trubisky has reportedly been working relentlessly on his improving his mechanics, his throwing motion, his footwork, his balance in the pocket. All of those things have been less than stellar for Mitch so far in his career. He said that he is also trying to read defense and coverages better and trying to watch a lot of tape to correct his mistakes on the field. One other thing Trubisky pointed out was also that he played a lot of last season less than a 100 percent with his shoulder injury. Trubisky injured his non-throwing shoulder and never got surgery on it until the offseason, so it is safe to say it affected his play on the field.
Mitch has certainly said and done all the right things in the offseason but now it’s time for him to showcase it on the field. Check out my video above for my full thoughts on the press conference.
