Mitchell Trubisky is becoming the teams leader
Ryan Pace has already seen his quarterback Mitchell Trubisky taking a step forward
The Chicago Bears are ready to take a step forward next season. Of course, that starts with a step forward from their new face of the franchise, Mitchell Trubisky.
Last season Trubisky was a rookie with just 13 college starts. He did not have much experience or time in command. He took a back seat to Mike Glennon, who was named the team captain throughout the year, and leaned on Mark Sanchez, who was a great helper for the rookie.
Now, with those two gone, it is time for Trubisky to show the world that this is his team, and he has control. That is exactly what Ryan Pace has seen in his signal caller.
Ryan Pace told Dan Pompei of the Athletic.
"“You can see him taking more of an authoritative approach,” he said. “The way he commands the huddle, the way he talks to teammates, you can see him taking ownership. And it seems very comfortable and natural. His skill set fits this offense–his athleticism, his quick release. So we’re really excited. He and the head coach are extremely passionate. That’s a great feeling when you pull out of the hours late at night and they are still there. Mitch is always at the facility, off days, always.”"
Ryan Pace can see it as clear as Prince Amukamara. Amukamara plays defense but he can understand the presence that Trubisky brings and mentioned buying into the quarterback as a reason to re-sign.

They see his demeanor. They see the growth and ability to command respect. Of course, they literally see him in the building every single day. It brings a sense of confidence to see the most valuable position on the team acting with such confidence.
Every vibe this off-season has been positive from the hiring of Matt Nagy, to Trubisky proving the words of Pace true by showing up to Rookie Mini-Camps.
These vibes appear to be started by Mitchell Trubisky, who may be starting something even bigger when the 2018 season comes around.
