The sad thing is that poor coaching and lack of targets really just insured we don’t know how good/bad MT is. The good thing is that neither do any of the other teams. GB will have zero clue what to expect when we go kick their ass.

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

....well Nagy did say in his hiring press conference that he was looking forward to working with Biscuit! I think he sees the good in Biscuit.....

I've seen more good than bad in Biscuit's play...not worth much, I know....but Biscuit does have some "it" already!

Kyle Long says Bears have “taken the training wheels off” Mitchell Trubisky

Posted by Charean Williams on July 12, 2018, 5:42 PM EDT

Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky had a quiet rookie season, or quiet compared to the other two quarterbacks selected in the first round.

New coach Matt Nagy and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich are expected to demand more of Trubisky this season, and the Bears are confident Trubisky is ready to take a similar step that Jared Goff did last season in his second season.

“My little boy is becoming a man,” Bears right guard Kyle Long said Thursday, via Madeline Kenney of NBC Sports Chicago. “. . . They’ve taken the training wheels off of Mitch’s little bike, so he’s going to be able to do some things creatively and get to showcase his skills. We’re excited to see him. He’s a tremendous leader and somebody the guys look up to in the locker room.”

Trubisky, the second overall pick in 2017, started 12 games, won four and threw seven touchdowns and seven interceptions as a rookie.

Okay, training wheels are off.....it may still be awhile before he can pop a wheelie thoough!

Long by nature is a fan of his quarterbacks because that’s how it’s been bred in him as an offensive lineman. By that same token, he tends to know what his QB is thinking. So when he was asked to describe how Mitch Trubisky looks in the new offense, his answer was insightful and hilarious all at the same time.

“I’D SAY THEY TOOK HIS TRAINING WHEELS OFF THIS SPRING. I CAN ONLY ENVISION A 3-YEAR-OLD MITCH TRUBISKY RIDING AROUND ON TRAINING WHEELS BEING PISSED OFF BECAUSE HE WANTS TO GO OVER THE JUMPS AND HE WANTS TO DO ALL THE TRICKS LIKE THE BIG KIDS ARE DOING. BECAUSE THAT’S WHO MITCH IS. HE’S A KID, BUT HE CAN ROLL WITH THE BIG GUYS. THAT’S WHEN HE’S GOING TO DO THIS (SEASON), AND BE ABLE TO HAVE SOME FREEDOM AND CREATIVITY. WE REALLY RESPECT THAT ABOUT COACH NAGY. HE’S REALLY LETTING (TRUBISKY) FLY HIS FREAK FLAG.”

Bears QB Mitch Trubisky: Offense ‘more complex, easier to execute’ than in 2017

ByPatrick Finley

Mitch Trubisky likes to do the drawing himself.

When he’s alone in a Halas Hall meeting room with quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone, he’ll sketch out a play, with all 11 offensive and defensive players in proper position, and try to detail each movement to Ragone.

“If you can explain something complicated simply,” Trubisky told the Sun-Times, “then you know it.”

When he’s alone, Trubisky writes each play on a flash card. On one side is the drawing. On the other is language he’s been tasked with learning since the Bears hired head coach Matt Nagy in January — a run-on sentence, as long as 16 words, detailing the personnel grouping, formation and play.

“Quarterback play is how fast you can process,” Trubisky said. “A lot of that is recollection. That’s exactly what flash cards are.”

The Bears spent their offseason program force-feeding Trubisky the new playbook, seeing what he could handle, and were pleased by the outcome. Training camp will be all about fine-tuning. Quarterbacks and rookies arrived at Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais on Monday, ahead of the official reporting date Thursday.

Trubisky’s success — and that of the offense Nagy was hired to drag into the 21st century — will start with how the second-year quarterback can process those 16-word play calls.

“You’re trying to learn and memorize,” he said, “and to try to forget what you did in the past.”

Nagy’s offense, he said, makes more sense than that of former offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains, which Trubisky ran as a rookie.

“It’s more complex, but it’s easier [to execute], as opposed to simpler but more difficult,” Trubisky said. “That’s how I would describe it last year. Last year, there were probably less words, but they didn’t necessarily fit together. Or it was just more difficult to process. This year, it’s more complex but it’s easier to execute and memorize and remember because everything builds on something. You start with a base concept, and it gets more and more complicated.”

Trubisky, who took Spanish at Mentor (Ohio) High School and, out of curiosity, Portuguese at North Carolina, compared the terminology to learning a foreign language. Sentences gain meaning when vocabulary words are linked with verbs.

Nagy, Ragone and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich taught the scheme with a logical progression. Trubisky knew he was being challenged and wanted more information.

“I kept telling them, ‘Let’s keep going until we can’t handle it,’ ” he said. “But it was amazing — we could handle it the whole time.

“It’s just crazy to see. I feel like that’s how it should be done, because it’s a more advanced offense, but we were able to pick it up so quickly over the summer because of how they taught it. And how everything fits together.”

This article speaks volume to the ineffectiveness of Loggain as an Offensive Coordinator! No Wonder, the Bears stunk the last 2 years on Offense....

If this article is true, it should be a positive concerning Nagy as a head coach. Isn't getting players to understand your scheme difficult in some situations.....but this sounds as if Nagy could explain and apply it fairly easy. That should be a sign of a good coach IMO.

Mitchell Trubisky: Hopefully I make people eat their words

Posted by Charean Williams on July 18, 2018, 4:39 PM EDT

Mitchell Trubisky plays in the same division with Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins and Matthew Stafford. Rodgers has won two league MVP awards and a Super Bowl MVP; Stafford is a former No. 1 overall draft choice who has passed for more than 4,000 yards seven consecutive seasons; and Cousins signed a three-year, $84 million fully guaranteed deal with the Vikings.

Trubisky, though, insists he doesn’t have a chip on his shoulder. Instead, he embraces the “challenge” of playing in a division with Rodgers, Cousins and Stafford.

“If that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what will,” Trubisky said, via Tyler Dunne of Bleacher Report. “People say, ‘This kid, no matter how good he does, he’s going to be the worst in his division every year.’ That’s a challenge I’m going to accept. You have to go toe-to-toe with the big dogs. We want to make teams fear coming into Chicago, and when we come into their town, they know we’re in for a war.

“So get ready. I’m going to be prepared. I’m going to give you everything I’ve got. Hopefully, I make people eat their words with what they say about me.”

Trubisky quietly has gone about his business as Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, the other first-round quarterbacks from last year, have received all the offseason press. Mahomes played 63 snaps. Watson played 464 and is coming off major knee surgery.

Trubisky, the second overall pick in 2017, played 724 snaps in 12 starts as a rookie. He threw seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.

He believes in himself and his ability to lead the Bears back into contention, even if no one outside the organization does.

“If it’s not the first game, it’s the second game,” Trubisky said. “If it’s not the second game, it’s the third game. If it’s not this year, it’s next year. But I do believe it’ll be this year.”
