Of course, even if Trubisky does have better skill players, if he struggles to get them the football, he is still going to struggle. Trubisky completed less than 60% of his passes. Whether that is on his situation or him, he has to wear that.

The Athletic did a great breakdown recently highlighting what Mitchell Trubisky can do to improve as an overall passer. They highlighted how a few of the interceptions and misses by Trubisky were on him.

It is his ability to swing his hips and his torso all the way through. When he does not, he tends to miss his target. This has resulted in key incompletions.

This is a real issue that Trubisky is going to have get better at. If he does not, the team is going to struggle as a whole. His completion percentage is hardly going to go up, and if he is getting better stats, it is because of the garbage stats he is compiling due to early pick sixes changing the game.
