Yeah, I hear him!

Wait until he discovers girls.......then we will see how much he thinks about football in the off-season. But we have awhile to wait....he is still young!

Have you not seen his girlfriend? I think it’s safe to say he discovered girls.

 

What makes you think that is a picture of his girlfriend? I do not see Mitch in that picture! I do not see as much as a "10! Tattoo on her anywhere!

Lets just say that biscuit appears to be very well buttered, and leave it at that.

Mitch Trubisky and Jared Goff are a very interesting contrast in clutchness. Trubisky's passer rating was 17th among starting QBs (95.4), while Goff's was 8th (101.1). In just the last 7 mins of Q4 or OT, however, Goff plummeted to 30th (76.8), while Mitch was 5th (115.4).

Even though this may seem a little harsh as you watch it I think it is actually a well done and fair breakdown of Biscuit.  It points out his strengths and weaknesses and goes a long way to showng what exactly the media loves to pick on ......

 

 

That being said, based on where Biscuit is in his development I don't think what he is showing is all that unusual.

It's interesting to me that he uses a clip of Manning to compare the mechanics, as Manning had similar issues in his first couple of seasons.

What I think I'm seeing is a guy on a learning curve and a damn tough one at that given his first season was not with the best and last year, his second season required a steep and challanging learning curve beyond that, basically starting all over.  His play in the clutch is what really gives me hope and it's consistent.  The learning curve on mechanics and decision making is something I have all the faith in world he will show steady improvment on and he has maybe one of the best teachers in the world on his side.

Mitch Trubisky plans his life in half-hour chunks. He taps away at the calendar app on his cellphone, plugging in dates and times for his workouts and appointments.

It’s not enough for the Bears quarterback to cross each completed item off the list, either. In the notes function on his calendar, Trubisky pastes a particular emoji to indicate a completed task — a green box with a white check mark inside.

“I like to be organized, I like to stick to my schedule,” he said. “That’s how I stay focused.”

There’s satisfaction, he said, each time he pastes in the little check mark.

“It’s just like, you make a goal list — you write your goals down, you check it off once you get there and you make a new one,” Trubisky said. “I think it’s the same thing with my schedule. It helps get me organized.

“I’m a little OCD. That’s how I do it.”

His coaches know how his mind works. That’s why they insisted, at the end of last season, that he try to take time for himself — away from football — during the offseason. The best hobby Trubisky could come up with was watching movies.

Trubisky doesn’t schedule his downtime in the phone. He simply unwinds when there’s nothing on the books.

“I don’t actually write in, ‘Relax,’ ” he said.

He seems like the kind of person who would.

“We talked about it last year, being obsessed,” coach Matt Nagy said. “He’s truly obsessed.

*****

In the span of two sentences, safety Eddie Jackson called Trubisky the following: a smooth criminal, a silent assassin and James Bond. Running back Tarik Cohen — who, like Jackson and Trubisky, made his first Pro Bowl last year — joked that he saw a different movie character in his quarterback.

“He reminds me of Ace Ventura,” he said, laughing. “Nah, I’m playing. Mitch is a cool guy. I see why he said James Bond. Because when he dresses up, he gets really dapper.”

When he dresses down, too. During the Bears’ 100th-season convention in June, former quarterback Jim McMahon gifted Trubisky his two signature accessories: a headband and sunglasses. Trubisky wore them during the entire roundtable with McMahon, even pausing the discussion in the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center’s main hall to tease a Bears fan dressed like Mike Ditka.

“Coach Ditka! What’s up? How you doing?” Trubisky said. “You should have let Jim throw the ball more.”

Trubisky’s laugh line, delivered in front of a few thousand fans, was a touchdown.

Entering his third season, Trubisky has put his personality on display like never before. It’s more than just OCD scheduling — he’s quicker to joke in public. He speaks in paragraphs, not sentences. He dressed like Ditka before a game last season and ran around with kids in two Chicago-area football camps last month.

He has shown the confidence of a man comfortable in his own skin.

That extends to the field.

“Even though some people might say Pro Bowl honors don’t matter, I think they do,” cornerback Prince Amukamara said of Trubisky, who was an injury replacement in the game. “I think they help with their confidence. And it was well-earned, well-deserved, what he got last year. And I’m sure that’s helped his confidence a little bit, because he’s been great this offseason.”

At this time last year, Trubisky was in the middle of Football 101, learning Nagy’s offense before their first regular-season game together.

This offseason, though, it was the quarterback who did the teaching. Nagy marveled at how Trubisky cut him off in a meeting to explain the specifics of how receivers should best run a “go” route.

“Do you understand how powerful that is when it comes from a player?” Nagy said. “The accountability vs. me — it’s monotonous to hear me all the time. When it comes from your leader and your guy, that’s like me saying it 10 times.”

I have to agree with one thing, Mitch has always had a bit of swagger to him. I think he hid a lot of his personality while he was learning the ropes. Personality that is coming out now that he feels he has earned his role as the leader. Nothing more dangerous than a talented player starting to just have fun and stress less.
