Manning might light a fire under the Chicago Bears second-overall pick to stay consistent.
Speaking of Peyton Manning, the Chicago Bears have had a numerous amount of special guest in their virtual meetings. Manning has once again visited the Chicago Bears quarterback room. Mitch Trubisky has kept his foot on the gas and has been working with his receivers and studying the playbook more than he had last year.
When Trubisky first got to Chicago, Trubisky wanted to become great. He works harder than most, even though it has felt like he hasn’t done much. Mitch Trubisky and the Chicago Bears offense was at a low last season. Trubisky went 8-7 despite him overthrowing and missing receivers. Trubisky completed 63.2 percent of his passes for 3138 yards with 17 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
Trubisky passed for a career-high 516 attempts on the year. Everybody talks about how Trubisky is terrible like he will be worse than he was last year. What happens if he is better than last year? Let us look at what would happen if he completed 67 percent of his passes again on 516 attempts. That would up his completed passes from 326 to 346.
Even at his 209 yards per game compared to his 230 yards per game in 2018, Trubisky would net around 3522 yards on that mock season. That is 400 more yards, which at very minimal could be four more touchdowns by just field yardage alone. That would be 21 touchdowns. Again that an if based on random metrics.
The main point is, why does everybody feel Trubisky will play worse. He might, but what if he plays better? Interestingly, people want to write him off so soon because he hasn’t had that mega year just yet. Granted Peyton Manning had a big year three with the Colts when he passed for 4400 yards and 33 touchdowns, Manning regressed in year four to 4100 yards 26 touchdowns and 23 interceptions.
Us Chicago Bear fans need to stop calling Trubisky bad because Watson and Mahomes have been great. Try and look at Mitch Trubisky as himself and compare him to what he should be at his level. The competition brought in might just be insurance in case Trubisky looks downright awful.
