After two games, and a 1-1 record, how confident do you feel in Mitchell Trubisky moving forward?
Mitchell Trubisky was fine in his 2018 home opener. Trubisky completed 75% of his passes, put up 200 yards and scored two touchdowns. However, with that comes 5.9 yards per attempt, two interceptions, and two sacks.
It seems as though the ups come with the downs like a wave that is unpredictable to time. So, moving forward, how confident are you in him?
When it comes to Mitchell Trubisky on-script, he is dynamite. He has consistently led his team down the field early into the game. Trubisky plays with poise and confidence early into these games, and they have gotten off to leads in each game.
However, as things progress, he does begin to lose his confidence. This is where you see the interceptions and the lack of scoring through the middle of these games.

While one of the interceptions was tipped, he almost threw a red zone interception that would have devastated the team. It seems as though when the pocket breaks, Trubisky struggles to keep his eyes up and process what he sees down the field.
This is not a surprising issue for a player with as little playing time as him. The idea is that if you do anything so many times, it slows down. That should happen for Trubisky regarding the athleticism around him.
Maybe it is taking longer than DeShaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes, but in spurts, you see the upside of similar regard. He is probably more athletic than either of those two. His arm would rank over Watson’s but behind Mahomes. So, concerning raw skills, he is still right there with them.
Even DeShaun Watson is going through his issues through two weeks. On a scale of 1-10, I stand in the middle at a five on Trubisky. While I know I need to see more, and that he is an incomplete player, it is also tough to say that I have confidence that he is going to start lighting up the NFL any time soon.
How confident are you in the ability of Trubisky to grow from here?
