3. Make the offense more comfortable for Mitchell Trubisky.
While Mitchell Trubisky has had his ups and downs, one thing is clear: He’s not totally comfortable in this new offense yet. At this point, what the Bears offensive staff needs to do is identify what parts of the offense Trubisky has been comfortable with through the first two games of the season and then cater the offense to his strengths.
While Trubisky has been improving every game, he hasn’t taken the second-year jump that many thought he’d be capable of taking.
One thing that Trubisky must do is learn to develop a mentality where on each drive, he’s focused on completing play after play rather than trying to do too much and forcing things. On the first drive in games against Green Bay and Seattle, it was clear that in the first half, he was doing just that. However, as the game progressed, he tried to make big plays, which led to him making mistakes. While he did regain his confidence late in the game against the Seahawks, Trubisky looks as if he hasn’t entirely learned this offense yet.
If Chicago can start to make the offense more comfortable for Trubisky, then he could begin to show more flashes of what he can be.
