Mitchell Trubisky continues to prove he is a leader
Many want to point to the fact that Mitchell Trubisky is pissed off. He is pissed off about the Chicago Bears trading for Nick Foles. He is pissed off about the fact that he may not be the starting quarterback. He is pissed off that the team performed so poorly in 2019. The thing is, he has plenty to be pissed off about.
Those saying, why did it take him this long are not remembering how visually upset he was last season. The way he spoke to media as the season progressed, it was obvious he was pissed off back then too. Before the 2019 season, why should he have been pissed off? The team was coming off a 12-4 season and an NFC North title. This is honestly what I believe led to some of the lack of focus issues and missed details Trubisky also mentions in the press conference.
Many on the team probably thought they could coast throughout the year and not put in the hard work. Trubisky might have been one of them despite his teammates constantly speaking to the work their quarterback put in on and off the field. When you hear about players on the team, none of them speak poorly about Trubisky and that speaks volumes to his character.
Trubisky is a proven leader, but now he needs to put together more consistent quarterback play. Being a leader is great, but it only gets you so far. He continues to lead this offseason though and is clearly attempting to find continuity again with his offensive skill players. Trubisky has been the catalyst in training gatherings that include Allen Robinson, Tarik Cohen, David Montgomery and more. Trubisky knows he cannot sit on his hands during this pandemic if he wants to start.
