Report: Trubisky to make return vs. Saints

  Report: Trubisky to make return vs. Saints Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will play Sunday against the New Orleans Saints after missing miss one game with a left shoulder injury, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports, citing sources. Trubisky was officially listed as questionable Friday after practicing in full for three straight team sessions coming out of the bye week. Chase Daniel took the reins of the Bears offense with Trubisky on the sideline, entering in relief early in a Week 4 win over the division-rival Minnesota Vikings and getting the start in a losing effort to the Oakland Raiders in London.Trubisky had struggled prior to the injury, completing 65.

CHICAGO - While the Bears have too much invested in Mitch Trubisky to give up on him six games into his third season, they have to start asking hard questions at Halas Hall - even if that doesn't lead to immediate answers.

What do they do if their franchise quarterback can't even operate at a consistent level as a game manager?

That's where things are crumbling for the Bears because for Trubisky to be a game manager, they need certain aspects of the team to play a vital role. It's difficult - bordering on impossible - for him to be a game manager when they can't run the ball. That kills the offense because it puts the quarterback in critical down-and-distance situations that require him to make plays.

Want Brad Biggs ’ 10 thoughts delivered to your inbox after every Bears game? How long do you think it will it take for the Bears to figure out that Mitch Trubisky isn’ t the answer at QB? IF Mitch turns out not to be the guy, do you think Pace is allowed to choose a second quarterback?

The Bears are not feeling internal pressure to rush Mitch Trubisky 's development _ but the team knows that crucial to preparing the rookie is having him face Trubisky 's debut in last week's 24-17 exhibition loss to the Broncos at Soldier Field increased public interest in seeing the No. 2 pick overtake starter

How can the Bears even try to make Trubisky a game manager when they don't attempt to run the ball or they abandon the ground game after a few failed attempts? Now the limited Trubisky faces, say, third-and-7, and opponents will bring pressure and take away what the offense wants to do. How are the Bears going to respond? Not well.

It's potentially a worst-case scenario for general manager Ryan Pace, who traded up from No. 3 to No. 2 to draft Trubisky in 2017 and built a roster considered a serious NFC contender entering this season.

Whiffing on a quarterback with a top-five pick can set back a team four years or more. How long a team is handcuffed depends on how long it takes to admit the mistake.

Quarterback purgatory is the worst place a team can be, and the Bears know that terrain well. Think back to the second half of Jay Cutler's eight-year run with the team. That's when you see the starter benched to promote Jimmy Clausen, and that's when you wind up spending $18.5 million guaranteed on Mike Glennon.

Comparatively, the Bears have a bargain with Mitch Trubisky . They’re sparing no expense in giving Trubisky every chance to succeed, and the evolution of the offense under Nagy will be an If all goes according to plan — and there no doubt will be twists and turns along the way — maybe Pace will be

Mitchell Trubisky hasn’ t had the breakout 2018 season that Bears fans were hoping for. The offense has struggled, particularly in the second halves of After another rough start against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3, fans already started to turn on their developing passer. They took to Twitter to

Where has it gone wrong with Trubisky? That's a tangled and multifaceted issue, and to be clear, the Bears aren't ready to pull the plug even in the face of mounting concerns.

A national scout for another team pointed me in the direction of Trubisky at this time three years ago, when he was putting up big numbers in his lone season as the starter at North Carolina and the Bears were clearly going to be in the market to draft a quarterback.

"I really liked all the traits, but I had a problem with a quarterback that couldn't beat out a guy (Marquise Williams) that was on the street the next year," the scout said. "Their head coach (Larry Fedora) was telling you something, and guys don't listen. It's like: 'Oh, we can make him better. We can improve him. We can always do this and that.'

"These college coaches, they get paid too. They know what the hell they are doing. That was the problem that I had."

The Vikings signed Williams - who started ahead of Trubisky for the Tar Heels in 2014-15 - as an undrafted free agent in 2016 and quickly cut him before he spent that summer on the Packers roster. He has bounced around the CFL and Alliance of American Football, and earlier this month the XFL's New York Guardians drafted him.

Brad Biggs ' weekly Bears mailbag has plenty of questions about the broken offense and where everyone goes from here. The Tribune’s Brad Biggs answers your Bears questions weekly. So now what? Serious question. Where does everyone go from here? — @buckywtgoodhair.

Trubisky took the directive and pieced things together. Before Pace and his cohorts arrived on campus, the Bears GM had a text. Dinner at 7 p.m. Brad Biggs was first to report the Bears intend to shift Kyle Long from right to left guard, as one of the team’s few offensive stars rebounds from injuries.

Bears coach Matt Nagy spoke Thursday about wanting to see steady, incremental improvement from Trubisky. What's alarming is he's heading in the wrong direction.

"This is a learning process," Nagy said. "You've seen the glimpses. I take you back, for instance, to the Tampa Bay game last year. And there's a couple others too. You go to Detroit last year, where you see him make plays throughout the (game). There's plays that he makes, and so when you see those plays and you see him going through the highs of this offense, you understand it's there.

"Now, we need to get more of that consistently. So we need less of the gray and more of the highs, and that's going to happen and that happens in time. The difference is that the time is the issue right now. That's where we're all at. Time is of the essence."

Citing games in Weeks 4 and 10 of 2018 as examples - and not something more recent - underscores the issues with Trubisky.

So where do Pace, Nagy and the front office turn if Trubisky doesn't get back on track? He's signed through 2020, and the Bears must decide by May 5 if they intend to pick up his fifth-year option for 2021.

Rivers, Chargers beat Bears 17-16 after Pineiro misses FG

  Rivers, Chargers beat Bears 17-16 after Pineiro misses FG Chicago kicker Eddy Pineiro missed a 41-yard field goal as time expired and the Los Angeles Chargers hung on to beat Chicago 17-16 on Sunday. BOX SCORE: CHARGERS 17, BEARS 16The Bears (3-4) took over at their 35 with 1:33 remaining and had a chance to win it after driving all the way to the 21. Chicago had quarterback Mitchell Trubisky take a knee with about 40 seconds left rather than try to get closer to the goal line. And Pineiro, who hit an upright on a miss earlier, hooked the potential winner wide left as time expired.

The draft is unlikely to offer a solution. The Bears have only two picks, both second-rounders, in the first three rounds, so they wouldn't be in position to select one of the top quarterbacks without seriously mortgaging future draft classes with a huge trade. Finding a viable option after Round 1 seems even less likely.

"They're going to have a tough time getting eight quarterbacks at the Senior Bowl this year out of the senior class," the national scout said. "It's not a real quarterback-rich class. There's a few that are pretty good, but you kind of wonder about them and they have holes too."

A handful of veteran quarterbacks are coming out of contract. Tom Brady's contract voids after this season, and while Bears fans who saw Brett Favre go from the Packers to the Jets and then the Vikings can dream, the idea that a 43-year-old Brady would walk through the front doors of Halas Hall seems fanciful. Drew Brees' contract expires at the end of the season. Ditto Philip Rivers. They're more likely to re-sign with their current teams than go elsewhere.

The list of potential free agents also includes Eli Manning, Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota, Teddy Bridgewater, Ryan Tannehill and Case Keenum. Manning, 39, appears headed to retirement. Winston has been a turnover machine throughout his career. Mariota appeared more shell-shocked than Trubisky before he lost his job with the Titans to Tannehill.

Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky , in a career-best performance with 354 passing yards Trubisky threw Robinson open ahead of Bucs cornerback M.J. Stewart. The QB’s timing and touch on a deep Toliver needs to turn his hips and get up to speed more quickly against a speed merchant like Jackson.

Bridgewater, who turns 27 next month, is probably the best option. He has been impressive in relief of Brees for the Saints this season, stepping into an offense with an excellent line and array of talented skill-position players. He generally takes care of the football - only 13 interceptions in his last 22 starts - and while he might not be an ideal fit, if the Bears are in the market for a quarterback, they're not going to be too picky.

Then there's the possibility Pace could trade for a quarterback. If young fill-in starters Kyle Allen (Panthers) and Gardner Minshew (Jaguars) continue to play well, it's reasonable to believe Cam Newton or Nick Foles could be available. Trade compensation might not be overwhelming, but both would come with big contracts. Perhaps the 0-7 Bengals would consider dealing Andy Dalton if they continue to spiral under first-year coach Zac Taylor and wind up drafting a quarterback.

Newton is a former MVP who has reached a Super Bowl, but he has had enough serious injuries that it's fair to wonder if he'll ever be the same. Foles won a Super Bowl for the Eagles filling in for Carson Wentz and got a four-year, $88 million contract from the Jaguars. Dalton helped lead the Bengals to the playoffs in four straight years (2011-14) but hasn't averaged more than 7 yards per attempt the last three seasons.

In a perfect world, Nagy and his staff would tap in to Trubisky's ability and straighten out the issues plaguing him, such as taking the wrong drop on occasion in Sunday's disastrous outing against the Saints. If he can return to the level at which he was playing a year ago, when he wasn't necessarily winning games for a team with a top-flight defense but wasn't losing them either, the Bears could resume down the path of believing he can make steady, incremental improvement.

If that doesn't happen, Pace needs to consider a plan for the offseason. Because one of the tenets of his job, as he has said, is being honest about his roster.

Mitchell Trubisky wants Bears' TVs turned off due to criticism; social media takes aim at easy target .
Trubisky, who is tired of "too many people talking on TV about us and what they think about us," is getting ripped on social media.But because Trubisky is an easy target, his tunnel vision approach — "because you've got too many people talking on TV about us and what they think about us" — largely is being received as weak.
