Mitchell Trubisky feels he was built for new Bears offense

The Bears addressed one of their shortcomings this offseason by signing wide receivers Allen Robinson and Taylor Gabriel and tight end Trey Burton to overhaul the lackluster receiving corps they deployed during the 2017 season.

Having those players on hand will help new head coach Matt Nagy as he installs the team’s new offensive system, but the overall success of the unit will hinge on a returning player. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will be asked to do more than he did in 12 starts during his rookie season.

Trubisky thinks that will work just fine. The Bears started their offseason program this week and Trubisky said his first impression is that he was “built for this offense.”

“It’s just dynamic, it’s creative, and it’s also balanced,” Trubisky said on NFL Network. “And that’s what you want. We’re going to get the ball out quick. We’re going to deceive the defenses, and we’re going to spread the field, and we’re going to get it all over to our playmakers. We’re going to be balanced. We’re going to play fast. We’re going to be dynamic. And we’re going to stretch the field every which way. I just feel like this offense is going to utilize my talents more and the players we have around me. Hopefully, we can just get it rolling from there. So I’m excited to keep diving in and keep working.”

With Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen also on board in the backfield, the Bears have the pieces in place to make a big jump offensively if Trubisky proves to be as good a fit as he believes he is at this point in the process.

  1. Biscuit’s got skill. Hard working kid, no ego, great ability to throw with accuracy on the move, i think a new system and a non-John Fox coached team will do wonders for this kid like a new system and a non-Jeff Fisher coached team worked wonders for Goff and the Rams. I’d be surprised to see them rise as quickly as they did, but there’s pretty much no doubt they’re taking a step forward this year.

  2. Will be interesting to see how he progresses this year, Goff and Wentz had no offensive weapons their first year and turned out pretty good, maybe Trubisky can do the same.

  3. While I like to bash on the talking heads that generally bash on the Bears. You have to admit that they are usually close to right. That’s not to say that teams don’t do better or worse than the preseason predictions because of a variety of variables. But, its really nice to see a majority of the experts leaning towards Chicago being much more respectable this year… Maybe I won’t be embarrassed to wear my shirts to work??

  4. Somebody built an offence for a QB that cant consistently throw into tight windows, Cant consistently hit deep routes and panics when he cant read the defense (which is often)?
    Why would build an offense like that?
    Dude was a colossal waste of a bunch of picks. He is an average AT BEST qb that a stupid GM WAY overpaid for. Second round talent that cost the bears 4 picks.

  5. The Bears kept it close with many good teams last year
    They wont be last in the division this year –
    Vikings, Packers Bears, Lions in that order this year

  6. Truly looking forward to two great Packers-Bears games this season! The oldest and grandest rivalry in the NFL.

    . . . . Maybe I won’t be embarrassed to wear my shirts to work??

    Maybe try jogging or push-ups if you’re that selfconcious

  8. I think Trubisky himself has a ton of potential.

    But let’s face it. “The addition” of Robinson, Gabriel and Burton does very little to improve the “lackluster” receiving corps he has to work with.

  9. Pace often criticized for price paid for Trubisky vs. price paid for Garoppollo, but I don’t think Patriots were making Garoppollo available at draft time.

  10. I won’t hold last season against Mitch, with John Fox as the HC.
    Now he’s had a season to acclimate and another offseason.
    Now that it’s his second year, let’s see what he can do.
    Potential is great, but by the 2nd year I expect some results.
    Not a star player, but way better than last year.

    No he wasnt available.

    But that doesnt mean you waste all them picks to move up one spot for an average at best “Project” QB.
    Should have drafted defense at the top and go turdbustky in the second round if he was there. If not you have glennon paid and starting and MUCH better qb’s coming out this year.
    No need to waste all those picks for a project.

    This is clearly a false, sheer jealousy and/or ignorant statement. The Bears are much, much improved with those WRs and you know it, dingleberry!

    You’re also leaving out the addition of Nagy to Fangio’s 2nd/3rd string TOP 10 defense from last year. The Bears are much, much improved with those WRs and you know it!

  13. To anyone who judges a young player based on 1 season clearly has not watched enough football in their lifetime. Plenty of players can still be good despite an average or even bad rookie or 2nd year.

    Also the price Pace paid to move up to grab Biscuit. It’s only too much if he doesn’t become the guy they envisioned him to be. If that pick hits then nobody will be saying “Pace you suck you gave up so many picks to move up blah blah”.

    If you don’t have a franchise QB then you have nothing. Biscuit might not ever be good (yes this is very possible) but I would rather take a swing and a miss then watch the Mike Glennon’s of the world year after year.

    Biscuit I feel good because everything I hear says he is a tremendously hard worker which is the #1 quality I want in any player on my roster, especially my QB.

    Wait a few years and then feel free to formulate an opinion. Jared Goff was a bust in year one, then everyone says he is the man, RG3 after an amazing rookie year could have been elected mayor in DC and then how did that work out?

    Patience. You don’t have to formulate an opinion immediately. Watch, let time pass, observe, then decide.
