Trubisky, hanging on by a thread

Recommended Posts

It took until week #8 of his third season for Chicago's coach to have to come out and declare that Trubisky will remain the starter.  The ESPN crew had a segment about it on Monday Night Countdown.   Showed several examples yesterday of bad plays by Mitch or conservative play calls to protect the offense from making a critical error and losing the game.  Of course they ultimately missed a FG and lost the game.  I think it was Louis Riddick tonight that said the writing is on the wall.  Nagy will be searching for a new QB in the offseason.  He's bringing down the whole offense.  And it's rough because they could have had Watson or Mahomes.

Vrabel has already kicked Mariota to the curb.  These coaches don't have time to wait around for a guy to flash some competent play.  It's a tough business.

I live in Chicago now, and the fans that I meet don't want to talk about Trubisky.

It's a very tough business and I think GM's and coaches (and fans) might expect too much from 22-25 year olds playing what might be the toughest position in all of sports.  Not many QB's in their first 1-3 years in the NFL deliver at the level that is hoped or expected.  IMO this is exacerbated in a pass happy league that runs the ball less than it once did.

An anomaly like Mahomes raises expectations for all young QBs.  It’s often disappointing to have unrealistic expectations.

Watson has been really good as well. That doesn’t help.

Amen.  Daniel Jones has put up big numbers here and there also.  But these are still anomalies.

Anomalies for what? Good QB’s?

Anomalies for young QBs being instantly great.

Exactly. So far Josh's second year looks a lot like Trubisky's second year (which, of course, wasn't bad at all, but there were signs that it might not last).  And you could say the same things about how we could've had Mahomes or Watson.

Not that he’s great but if I was the Bears, I’d trade for Mariota. He is pretty safe but he can give you an out because Trubisky is clearly not the right guy

yeah. I agree.  Next 4 games are big for him.  A chance to stack more wins and sling it around against average to below teams.

Do they even have a first round pick next year?

 No, they don't. They'll have to invest in a FA QB.

Josh Allen has a better arm than MT.   Hopefully he educates himself and moves from a C+/B- player to the next level.  I am bettting he will btw.

Did I say “good”?  Nope. 
The point is most QBs do not become instantly great, like Mahomes.  People see his rise and expect someone like Allen to do the same. When he doesn’t become another anomaly, he’s viewed as a bust, or at least as failing.

Most QB’s who are good though are usually pretty good by their second or third year though. Your initial point was about unrealistic expectations though, and there’s nothing unrealistic about expecting young QB’s to be good by their second to third years because, again, most good QB’s are good by that time.

 

The anomalies are really the sucky QB’s in years 2-3 eventually becoming good.

So you don’t know? 

 

And the whole Josh/Trubisky thing has no legs ?    

 

Both will be good QBs when it’s all said and done.   

 

Book it ✊🏼    It’ll take longer for Mitch fwiw.
