Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky Wasn't Even Pressured Sunday Night and Has No Excuse for Struggles

The Chicago Bears fell to the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday Night Football in a game that, if they had a competent offense, they probably would have won.

Matt Nagy's side had countless opportunities throughout the game to take a lead, but Mitchell Trubisky's laughably low ceiling was on display in primetime.

The performance ultimately saw Nagy bring in Chase Daniel for what turned out to be Chicago's final drive, and Trubisky simply has no excuses for his woeful display. Per Next Gen Stats, the former No. 2 overall pick was pressured on just 11% (5 of 44) of his dropbacks against the Rams.

If that doesn't tell the whole story, we don't know what does. For the game, Trubisky finished 24-of-43 (56%) for 190 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

We'd expect those numbers from Mitch if the Rams' front six was feasting on the Bears offensive line, but that just wasn't the case. Outside of the occasional Aaron Donald bullrush, the North Carolina product had all day to throw.

Maybe not now, but we don't doubt the Bears' braintrust will weigh their options after this season.

As all teams do against Chicago, the Rams were committed to stopping the run -- they conceded just 74 yards -- and forced Trubisky to beat them. Folks, not one Bears receiver eclipsed 60 yards in the game.

We hate to come down on the guy, but if you can't pick apart a defense with ample time in the pocket to go through your reads, you don't deserve to be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
