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 Bears coach Matt Nagy entered his team’s road test against the Philadelphia Eagles with a simple goal for Mitchell Trubisky, his struggling starting quarterback:

Trust your eyes, he told him, and throw with conviction.

Over the first 30 minutes of the game, Trubisky did neither as the Bears accumulated an embarrassing nine total yards of offense before heading into the break down 12. It was, by any measure, the ugliest half of offensive football of 2019, which is an incredibly difficult thing to do considering the entire rules are slanted toward offense now.

That’s how bad things have gotten in Chicago, as the Bears’ second-half rally fell short in a 22-14 loss to the Eagles.

At 3-5, the Bears are miles away from 2018, when they went 12-4 and won the NFC North under Nagy in his first year at the helm. And make no mistake about it, Nagy’s ability to coax the best out of the athletic, strong-armed Trubisky — whose uneven mechanics and questionable field vision were scrutinized before the Bears made him the second overall pick of 2017 — was the driving force behind the Bears’ seven-game turnaround a year ago.

Not that I was surprised about that. After visiting Nagy and the Bears in training camp last year, I came away thinking Nagy was coaching a younger, more athletic version of Alex Smith, the quarterback Nagy helped turn into one of the league’s best passers over the previous five seasons in Kansas City. But I also came away from that visit realizing that Trubisky, like Smith, is a thinker at the position, perhaps too much of one. A tendency to overanalyze keeps some quarterbacks (like Smith) from ever cutting it loose at the position, though I figured Trubisky’s overall athleticism and aptitude would help him get the job done more often than not with Nagy’s help.

Opinion: Bears ' season hangs in balance as Mitchell Trubisky fails to step up yet again. PHILADELPHIA — The expression on the face of Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky reflected a The visitors' locker room at Lincoln Financial Field had cleared out quickly following the

The Chicago Bears aren't done cutting loose notable veterans just yet. Money isn't an issue for the Bears at all, so the cuts will come down to meeting roster requirements while clearing room for new free-agent additions and rookies to get playing time as the team heads into another rebuilding year.

Unfortunately for the Bears, Trubisky, who was indefensibly taken before two bonafide stars in Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes, looks more like the NFL draft’s version of Sam Bowie.

As evidenced by a disastrous first half Sunday in which Trubisky regularly failed to throw with anticipation and often seemed to doubt what he saw, which caused him to throw inaccurately, throw late or, even worse, eat a sack, like he did on one first-down play midway through the opening quarter:

Two plays later on third-and-14, Trubisky was checking it down to David Montgomery when he inexplicably pump-faked with 15 yards of green space ahead of him:

It’s rare to see an NFL quarterback so gun-shy, so timid in the pocket. Look at how long it takes Trubisky to get to this checkdown:

These are the things that defenses see, too. They notice a quarterback who looks timid, which explains why the Eagles spent the whole game in a disrespectful one-high coverage look designed to snuff out the run and wipe out underneath throws, all while daring Trubisky to connect deep, which he finally did a little in the second half, when it was too late.

Brad Biggs: Where do Bears turn if Trubisky can't turn it around?

  Brad Biggs: Where do Bears turn if Trubisky can't turn it around? 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.

According to Dianna Russini of ESPN, the feeling is that McDermott must start veteran Derek Anderson against the Indianapolis Colts, or he is in danger of losing the locker room if Nathan Peterman gets the call.

Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky addresses the media after his team' s loss to the Lions on I think Mitch Trubisky will end up being a good NFL quarterback, but Saturday was a reminder of just how This has to work. If it doesn’t, the Bears will be in danger of becoming — gasp! — the Browns.

Now, here’s the deal: I’m not willing to buy that this tentative, ineffective quarterback is who Trubisky wholly is. He’s wearing a giant black harness on his left shoulder — he dislocated his non-throwing shoulder a month ago — and he generally did not play like this last year.

Even assuming that’s the best-case case, if that injury is affecting his ability to execute the basic NFL throws, then perhaps he shouldn’t play. Trubisky is looking so inept that despite the fact that everyone knows about his injury, he’s not even being given the benefit of the doubt in the court of public opinion. This is bad because when a pissed-off fan base decides a quarterback stinks, that fan base also tends to stop buying tickets, which means changes have to be made to get fans excited about the team and spending money again.

What happens if this keeps up, and the Bears end up being terrible?

Well, fans are already questioning the competence of general manager Ryan Pace, who took Trubisky over Mahomes and Watson. It’s only a matter of time before they start questioning the competence of the coach, too (though that that shouldn’t be the case).

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.

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky , right, listens to a question alongside cornerback Kyle Fuller in Bourbonnais. Moments like this would repeat themselves throughout the first six days in Bourbonnais. “He has really taken ownership of this locker room ,” Kyle Long said about Trubisky .

The Mitch Trubisky Era is upon us, and it ignited hope into a Bears team and fanbase that' s looking for But there was more than Trubisky happening, even as he threw an interception late in the fourth quarter That belief was nowhere to be found after the Tampa Bay and Green Bay games and was in danger of being extinguished. There’ s tons of value in keeping a losing locker room together, and

The easiest fix for the Bears will be to replace the quarterback or, at the very least, add legitimate competition for Trubisky this offseason. As painful as either choice would be, they may not have a choice since continuing to run an ineffective quarterback out there is one of the quickest ways to lose a locker room.

We saw this happen last year in Jacksonville. The Jaguars lost to Kansas City in Week 5 due to Blake Bortles’ incompetence, and a kickass Jaguars defense promptly went to hell as it realized that Bortles’ shortcomings would cap their ceiling.

The next week, the Jags got their butts kicked 40-7 against Dallas, and the Jaguars, who reached the AFC title game the season before, finished 2018 with a 5-11 record as Bortles put the finishing touches on a career-ending effort (as a legit NFL starting quarterback, at least).

If Trubisky can’t turn it around, the Bears are potentially facing the same fate for 2019. The tenor of the room will become increasingly negative, like it always does when a season goes south, and players will be pointing fingers.

Nagy has been coaching in this league long enough to know this, and you can bet that’s why he spent part of his postgame presser stressing the importance of sticking together. The Bears are not quite in football hell yet. But they’re on the precipice.

Olin Kreutz compares Trubisky to Jay Cutler. I’ll continue on my path as I have planned.” There’ s tons of value in keeping a losing locker room together, and much of the Bears ’ unity so far is a credit to him.

“I’m learning right now that our team is very, very strong, very strong — they’re built tough,” Nagy said. “We’re being challenged right now, it’s not easy and we hate it, it sucks but it is what it is. We’ve got to just rally around each other, support one another. We’re being as tested as we’ve ever wanted to be, but we’ll see how we respond to it.”

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.
