QB - CHI
Week 8 Outlook
Mitch Trubisky completed 13 of 22 pass attempts for 128 yards, one TD, and one INT, adding one carry for 45 yards in the Bears’ 30-26 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
After failing to spark the Bears offense against a depleted Falcons defense, Trubisky was benched for Nick Foles and forced to watch from the sidelines as Foles led a fourth-quarter comeback. It's entirely possible Trubisky remains on the bench in favor of Foles for Week 4, but this is a situation to keep an eye on. Foles under center would be an upgrade to the Bears' pass-catchers.
Mitch Trubisky completed 18 of 28 pass attempts for 190 yards, 2 TDs and 2 INTs, adding four carries for 16 yards in the Bears’ 17-13 win over the Giants on Sunday.
It was a rough showing for Trubisky, but he did enough to lead his team to a second straight victory in the narrow win over New York on Sunday. His play has been far from stellar thus far into the season, but he’s still managed five touchdown throws heading into a tasty matchup with Atlanta’s barely-there secondary in Week 3.
Mitch Trubisky completed 20 of 36 pass attempts for 242 yards, 3 TDs and no INTs, adding three carries for 26 yards in the Bears’ 27-23 win over the Lions on Sunday.
Trubisky looked like he was on the brink of being pulled for Nick Foles for three quarters of this one before leading Chicago back in remarkable fashion. He delivered three touchdowns in the final quarter to lead the Bears to victory, capping it off with a 27-yarder to Anthony Miller inside of two minutes to take the lead for good. The win should give him another week as the starter, and Week 2 presents another favorable matchup in the New York Giants.
Chicago Bears head coach Matt Nagy has officially named Mitch Trubisky the starting quarterback for Week 1.
Nagy reiterated the starting job was won by Trubisky and it was not merely handed to him. “Mitch won the job and that's very important for him, for us, and for everybody to understand he worked really hard to get to this point,” said Nagy. Trubisky will face a familar foe, the Detroit Lions, in Week 1 and he’ll get a chance to prove to himself and the organization that he is the franchise quarterback they drafted him to be when they chose him with the 2nd overall pick in 2017.
Sources tell ESPN that Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky is expected to be named the Bears starting QB for Week 1 due to his progression and overall performance throughout training camp.
Trubisky beat out Nick Foles in a competitive battle for the starting QB position, and the 26-year-old will get another shot at leading the Bears. He is likely to have a short leash given there's a competent and proven veteran QB waiting in the wings, but this should be good news for Allen Robinson owners as well as Anthony Miller. Both WR's developed rapport with Trubisky and shouldn't deter their outlook this season. Trubisky should not be rostered in 1-QB leagues but could offer value as a backend QB2 with upside with his rushing ability.
