Trubisky, hanging on by a thread

And thus my point about the draft being a crap shoot. Minshew wasn’t on anyone’s radar and apparently he can really play. He may be playing better than he did in college. He is another anomaly, albeit one that doesn’t get the press that Mahomes does.
 

Josh Allen is who many described him before the draft - a bit of a raw project who will take some time to develop. And that’s exactly what he has proven to be. 

How many raw projects succeed in the NFL? Isn’t their success the anomaly?

Tarik Cohen/David Montgomery, Trey Burton and Taylor Gabriel.  All weapons to a competent QB.

 

Lmao.    What has David Montgomery and Trey Burton ever done.      Be honest 🧐

 

David Montgomery should change his name to guy whose not as good as Jordan Howard. 

 

Taylor Gabriel is a midget masquerading as a #2 wideout. 

 

Its Just Allen Robinson.

There’s lots of different anomalies.  The one I initially described was Mahomes’ instant greatness leading to unrealistic expectations for other young QBs. I believe that to be true and people’s impatience with Josh Allen is in part, I believe, because Mahomes and maybe Watson have excelled very quickly.  Their success is still, to me, an anomaly and not the norm. May have to put Lamar in with them as this year progresses. 
 

Aaron Rodgers was drafted in the lower part of the first round and sat for a good while behind Farve before getting his shot. His greatness is hard to judge as an anomaly because he had to sit behind a Hall of Famer. I wonder if he would have been instantly great like Mahomes. He was good, not great his first full season after sitting for three years. His second starting season was pretty great. 
 

Brees took a while to become great. Eli, Peyton and Rivers all took some time to become great. Those are becoming dated examples, but the fact is until very recently, young QBs took a while to play at a very high level. That’s why I consider Mahomes an anomaly.

can you believe that on this date...october 30, 2019...the year of our lord, someone actually tried to reference how hard the schedule would be the following season?  i want to punch holes in dry wall right now.

 

Have you looked at our opponents?  We play the NFC West which is very strong, the AFC West, and likely Texans/colts and Browns/Steelers.  But ya I'm a little hasty on it, there might be a team bus crash or something that just tears some of these teams current rosters asunder.

What Bears fans are feeling this season about their QB could very well be what Bills fans are feeling next season. 17 more games for Allen basically.

Bills fans already love Dalton for his Buffalo Bills playoff heroics, so it's a perfect fit.

Many fans have been touting how much better Allen has been or will be than Trubisky, so it's relevant to the conversation.

Fair point, but I believe in their talent, as they've shown flashes.  It is my belief that with better QB play you'd see a significant tic in production from the entire offense.

Trubisky was a pretty solid QB in his 14 starts last year.

 

What changed from one year to the next?

 Extremely dated examples. I wouldn’t call “since 2005” very recently.

Trubisky is more than likely a bust. I thought they got him going to the point where he would be a startable QB on a good team. But he looks completely lost. I know the Bears supporting offensive talent has regressed but he shouldn't be that terrible. They are likely going to bring in a vet QB to "compete" with him next year and boot him out after declining that 5th year option.
