Mitchell Trubisky draws on offseason experience to master offense

LAKE FOREST, Ill. – In a sign of progress, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky no longer watches film of the Kansas City Chiefs in order to comprehend the offensive scheme head coach Matt Nagy brought with him to Chicago.

“Mitch is building his own library right now within the offense,” Nagy said on Wednesday.

Trubisky’s library, however, is only partially built.

The Bears – and by extension, Trubisky – are a work in progress offensively, primarily because for the majority of the team, Nagy’s system is a drastic departure from what they ran in the woebegone John Fox era.

“[Mitch needs] experience [above all else],” Bears offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich said. “I think it’s 100 percent experience and just reps, and that’s kind of what I was talking about was knowing why something happened. As a quarterback, he might take the perfect drop and be looking at the right guy in his progression, and that guy runs the wrong route or the left guard busts or something. The defense does something different or wrong, even. And trusting that is just a matter of putting rep on top of rep on top of rep and being confident.”

Trubisky also has the unenviable task of going up against defenders who are entering Year 4 under venerable coordinator Vic Fangio. The Bears are expected to return at least eight starters in 2018, including all four members of their secondary.

“Mitch is starting to see some coverages now,” Nagy said. “Coach Fangio and his guys are doing a good job of mixing different coverages and disguising different looks.

“In Kansas City it took us five years to get to that point that we got to. That did not happen overnight. That develops in time. We’re kind of at a pace right now where we have to at times pull back and say to yourself we’re months into this thing, not years.”

Case in point: The offense had its share of struggles during Wednesday’s OTA.

Helfrich even joked with reporters that “today was a bad build” when asked about what he and Nagy had built on offense during their time together.

Still, the organization appears firmly behind Trubisky.

The Bears technically have options behind Trubisky. Chicago signed high-priced backup quarterback Chase Daniel, who played under Nagy in Kansas City, in free agency, but the franchise’s future is all about Trubisky.

For the Bears to one day contend for a playoff berth, Trubisky has to thrive in Nagy’s offense.

“I feel like [my teammates faith in me is] growing and growing every single day, and nothing gives me more confidence than when my teammates believe in me,” Trubisky said. “The offensive guys and the defensive guys as well. When you have teammates that believe in you and know you can get the job done, that gives you a lot of confidence to just go out there and be yourself and lead the way you know how and just take care of your job and make other guys' jobs easier around you.”

Added Helfrich: “It’s always been that with quarterbacks, we chase perfection. And that’s impossible. It’s a hard chase. But Mitch is a willing participant in that. He comes to every meeting prepared, every meeting with a good question, and he wants to be coached. That’s a big part of it, too.”

3 Reasons Mitch Trubisky could be surprise 2018 MVP candidate

Heading into his second season, here are three reasons why Mitch Trubisky of the Chicago Bears could be a surprise MVP candidate in 2018.

In April 2017, the Chicago Bears pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the NFL Draft by trading up one spot in the first round to land former North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky, despite spending all of that money in free agency on Mike Glennon. Without question, the Bears made the right choice that offseason by moving on from Jay Cutler at quarterback, and even though the selection of Trubisky meant the team would most likely be wasting all of that money on Glennon, early signs point to this being the right move.

Flash forward to present day in which Trubisky has a year of experience under his belt as quarterback in Chicago, and even though his rookie campaign wasn’t the most impressive season in the world, he deserves some benefit of the doubt. Sure, it was frustrating for some Bears fans to see Trubisky only toss seven touchdown passes in the 12 games he played in, but also keep in mind of his surroundings.

With a better offense, the argument can be made that Trubisky’s first NFL season would have been a lot more successful, but all that matters moving forward is the Bears have a better chance at winning games, which should be the case in 2018. Saying Trubisky has what it takes to be a surprise MVP candidate during his sophomore season may sound like an absolute long shot when looking at last year, but when taking these three factors into consideration, it may not seem that crazy after all.

3. Jordan Howard will only get better

Most quarterbacks would love the opportunity to play with a running back like Howard, and Trubisky knows the two have the chance to help this offense develop into one of the best in the league when seeing how young they are. After two impressive years, Howard’s third NFL season could be the best one yet in Chicago if Trubisky comes through on his end.

2. Bears brought in better weapons on offense

Thanks to an offseason highlighted by the key signings of Allen Robinson and Trey Burton, Trubisky will be in a much better position to succeed on offense for the Bears. While Robinson was arguably the top receiver available in this year’s free agency class, Burton seems to be working his way up to becoming one of the league’s next best pass-catching tight ends, which is why Chicago was thrilled to sign him when they did.

Not to mention, that Super Bowl title Burton earned a few months back with the Philadelphia Eagles should provide a little extra motivation to succeed in an expanded role in Chicago. With new weapons like these, Trubisky should realize his job is going to be much easier with a stronger supporting cast on the offensive side of the football.

1. Rookie experience should pay off in long run

Over the years, it’s become quite common for NFL teams to have a rookie quarterback spend the first year learning from the sidelines, although some of them get thrown into the mix right away. Originally, Chicago started the 2017 season with Glennon under center, and it was easy to see why when looking at all of the money he was making from his hefty contract signed in free agency.

However, the Bears decided to switch it up after four games by allowing Trubisky to earn experience as a starter earlier than expected, and while there were some struggles, this decision should benefit him in the long run. Instead of entering the 2018 season wondering what it will be like to start in an actual NFL game, Trubisky can use his rookie campaign as a learning experience to improve during his second year in the league.

I was going to put it in that thread actually........ but I am the last few posts in there and I hate being the only one posting in a thread like 2 - 3 posts in a row.  Also it has been bumped back beyond even the first page in that sub-forum so when I went to look for it, it wasn't there and I gave up quickly.  Sorry.  I agree with you, it easily belongs there.
