Can Mitchell Trubisky Play at Higher Level in 2019?
Entering his third season in the league, Mitchell Trubisky is undoubtedly the leader of the Bears’ offense. Having only missed two games in 2018, Trubisky finished the year completing 66.6 percent of his passes for 3,223 yards, 24 touchdowns, 12 interceptions, and a passer rating of 95.4. As a result, the second-overall pick from the 2017 NFL Draft made his first Pro Bowl, and was the first Bears quarterback to be named to the Pro Bowl since Jim McMahon.
With one full year of Nagy’s offense under his belt, Trubisky should be twice as comfortable under the helm of the Bears’ offense. Although the three-year veteran did have a successful campaign last year, he still struggled with his accuracy. Having fewer overthrown and underthrown pass in 2019, Trubisky could have an extremely better season than last year’s, further making his claim as the franchise’s quarterback of the future.
