Not only does the eye test palpably reveal that Mitchell Trubisky has been one of, if not the, NFL's worst quarterback through the first two weeks, but his woeful statistics back it up in excruciating fashion thus far.
It's now being largely discussed that the Chicago Bears offense, thanks to Trubisky, could severely hinder the team's lofty expectations. After all, they just need to be competent enough to take the burden off their world-beating defense.
Mitch, however, doesn't necessarily believe that he needs to make changes. He trusts Matt Nagy's system and believes that it will just take off at some point. “You just gotta believe this week is gonna be the week,” Trubisky told the Chicago Sun-Times.
“There’s definitely some things that we are missing on film, but we’re coming together and we’re correcting them...We’re sticking together and we’re gonna do what we gotta do to correct it, and we gotta believe that this offense could explode at any minute because of the playmakers and the special guys we have in the locker room. We just gotta keep believing in that," he continued.
Bears fans should take that entire quote with a grain of salt because its precisely the wrong mentality. This offense goes as Mitch goes. If he continues being erratic, defenses will continue to stack the box to shut down the run game and force him to throw.
The North Carolina product's optimism is as foolish as it's admirable, and it shouldn't have the Solider Field faithful feeling any more confident in their third-year gunslinger.
Hoping something magically changes equates to virtually no sense of urgency from Trubisky to go out and change the narrative. In fact, it almost shows a lack of confidence in his ability to do so.
