Mitchell Trubisky has shown flashes as a dual-threat for the Chicago Bears

Trubisky is a solid athlete. He has a good work ethic and takes a team-first approach. If approached with a new role, how well could things rollover? His career-best 421 yards cane in 2018.

Through two and a half games, Trubisky gained 64 yards on eight carries. That is good enough for eight yards a carry. During the Falcons game, he had a 45-yard run. While this is an impressive start for a quarterback, learning a new position would not be best. He is still overcoming obstacles as a quarterback.

Throwing Trubisky into unfamiliar territory would only make his future more uncertain. A fire still needs to be lit under him. He was the second pick of the draft and an early Pro Bowler. It’s time to learn from the fall and the climb.

Trying to learn another position is not fitting for his current space. Everything that would qualify him as a swiss army knife is all sewed up. Cordarelle Patterson is a receiver, running back, and return specialist for the Bears. With Cohen down, expect Patterson’s production to pick up.

He came into the league in this same situation. Sit behind the starter and learn some more. Perhaps this is the end of an era. Trubisky will not be involved with an extra play unless in at quarterback. There will be no 1-2 quarterback punch. Foles is the starter until further notice.

Matt Nagy was not Trubisky’s coach when drafted to Chicago. Nagy’s playbook. Now that the benching choice was made, Nagy would have to extend a playbook that he’s still out to prove. Everything with Trubisky was alright until the deep ball was nowhere to be found. The Bears needed to take shots against the Falcons.
