Matt Nagy's One Big Demand for Mitch Trubisky This Offseason Should Drive Bears Fans Nuts

The 2019 Chicago Bears might have put together one of the worst 9-7 seasons in recent memory, as former No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky regressed in almost every statistical category.

Despite such a poor season from No. 10, general manager Ryan Pace, who traded up to draft Trubisky in 2017, confirmed that he will be Chicago's starting quarterback in 2020.

Head coach Matt Nagy has a goal for Trubisky this offseason, however -- he wants him to master "understanding coverages."

Call me old-fashioned, but I believe firmly that NFL quarterbacks should be able to understand coverages. Controversial, I know!

Trubisky completed 63.2% of his passes for 3,138 yards and 17 touchdowns this season, good for a passer rating of 83.0. All of those numbers are worse than his Pro Bowl 2018, and his passer rating mark ranked 28th among qualified quarterbacks.

Trubisky isn't the worst quarterback in the league, but it's painfully clear that he isn't a franchise quarterback that Chicago can or should build their offense around at this moment. The sooner they realize this, the better.
