The biggest story line going into this season for the Chicago Bears was the controversy at their quarterback position. There was a clear training camp battle between Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky. After a long and competitive camp battle, the winner was Mitch Trubisky. So going into this season, it looked like it was going to be the Bears giving Mitch Trubisky one final shot to resurrect his career. Trubisky had regressed last season after having a solid season in 2018.
Now, after two games and two victories for the Bears, there is a legitimate argument to be made that Mitchell Trubisky has improved. Through two games, Trubisky has thrown for five touchdowns and only two interceptions. However, it should really be six touchdowns, as Anthony Miller dropped a would be touchdown on a gorgeous throw by Trubisky in the end zone. Additionally, Bears WR Allen Robinson got man handled by Giants CB James Bradberry on one of the throws made by Trubisky in which Robinson should have came down with it. So, as you can tell Trubisky has been let down more by his receivers more so than his receivers are being let down by him. Trubisky also has cleaned up his footwork in the pocket, his pocket presence is better and his overall decision making and accuracy have improved.
In fact, Pro Football Focus has even graded Mitch Trubisky as the highest graded player on offense for the Bears in the game vs the Giants. It was his highest grade he received since Week 12 of 2018. His overall passing grade, passer rating and overall grade have all been career highs so far for Trubisky. So there is clear evidence than he has improved this season. It looks like that quarterback competitive seemed to have a positive effect on Trubisky. Let’s see if it continues.
