The biggest issue with Mitch Trubisky has been mental lapses. He had the same in issue in the Chicago Bears most recent practice.

When reports came out that Mitch Trubisky was in shape and looked good, Chicago Bears rolled their eyes. Physical ability is not an issue for Trubisky. His processing and decision making under pressure are what hold him back from being a good quarterback.

So, while teammates can talk him up, and he can look the part, the most recent reports out of camp have outweighed everything else you have read.

Trubisky scrambled on a first down near the goal line and ran out of bounds for a loss of yards. He could have thrown the ball away and saved the yards, which Matt Nagy addressed after practice.

It is good that Nagy addressed this publicly, but the reality is that this is not the first time this has happened. Not even close. Against the Lions, Matt Nagy lost his mind when Trubisky ran out of bounds to stop the clock on third down. The issue with stopping the clock is that it was now fourth down, and the Bears had to kick a field goal with plenty of time left.

Nagy also benched Trubisky for not pulling off a simple option play against the Los Angelas Rams. This is not the first time that Trubisky holding onto the ball, and not making a sound decision has happened.

The fact that this had to be something that Nagy harped on, it clearly bugged him last year, has to be a big blow to Trubisky and his chances to re-earn the trust of Nagy. He can make big-time throws, and show up in shape, and say the right things. However, when it comes to simple decisions, if he does not show any growth, the Bears are going to go another direction. These plays have to stand out.
