Chicago Bears: Mitch Trubisky

After a very pedestrian rookie season, Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky took a huge step forward in 2018, helping to lead the Bears to an 11-3 record. A lot of his success has to be credited to first-year head coach Matt Nagy.

Chicago traded up to select Trubisky second overall in the 2017 NFL Draft, a move many questioned after Trubisky looked overwhelmed in his first year. After throwing only seven touchdowns in 2017, Trusbisky put up 24 scores through the air in 2018.

While early, it appears the Bears have found their quarterback of the future in the quarterback from North Carolina. Trusbisky and Nagy appear to be a force to be reckoned with in the NFC North for many years to come.

Trusbisky is not a finished product yet, but he has shown a lot of flashes this year. He is trending in the right direction with Chicago, and his development should continue to trend up. He should contribute to a very competitive NFC North.

So for now, it looks like the Bears are in very good shape at the quarterback position in 2019 and beyond. They seem to have found their long-term answer in Trubisky, and there is no doubt he will be their starting quarterback when the 2019 season kicks off.
