Mitchell Trubisky and the Chicago Bears are entering the 2020 NFL season in what could be his final year as the team’s starter. After beating out veteran quarterback Nick Foles in a training camp competition, the Bears are going to give the former No. 2 overall pick one more chance to prove himself.
During the 2019 season, Trubisky struggled a lot and some thought the Bears would move on from him this offseason. That theory was legitimized a bit when they went out and traded for Foles. However, it’s clear that Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy want to give Trubisky every chance possible.
When everything was said and done last season, Trubisky had completed 63.2 percent of his pass attempts for 3,138 yards, 17 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. The numbers simply aren’t going to cut it.
Chicago has surrounded Trubisky with decent weapons, but nothing to write home about. Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, and Riley Ridley appear to be the top wide receivers, while the Bears also brought in Jimmy Graham and Cole Kmet at tight end this offseason.
In Week 1, the Bears are set to hit the road to take on the Detroit Lions. All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at what should be expected from Mitchell Trubisky in the first game of the season.
