Bears have struggled with the Quarterback position for years, arguably since Jim McMahon left the team in 1988. The Bears addressed the even larger current Quarterback situation last year in the draft by trading up to draft Mitchell Trubisky second overall. Trubisky started 12 games last year, and had a solid season with what he was given. Injuries plagued not only the offense, but the entire team last year. Trubisky’s receiver core last year consisted mostly of small route runners/slot guys for most of the season, making Zach Miller and Tarik Cohen his primary targets. Now that Trubisky has been given REAL weapons, this season should be interesting. The Bears currently have three Quarterbacks listed on the roster: Mitchell Trubisky, Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray.


Starting off with the up and coming superstar, Mitchell Trubisky threw for 2,193 yards, 7 touchdowns, 7 interceptions, and had a 77.5 QBR. Given his supporting cast and awful offensive coaching, he had a decent season. He has to improve certain things, but most of them are small and will come naturally with development. A game I like to look at which shows Trubisky’s largest weakness in my opinion is a Packers game from last year. Trubisky was sacked 5 times in that game, and at least 3 or 4 could have been avoided with better pocket presence. His biggest strength is his ability to learn on the fly. Trubisky kept improving and improving every week last season, not always big improvements, but they were always noticeable improvements. Overall I think Trubisky is going to excel in Nagy’s new system and he’s going to lead this team for years to come, maybe even to a Super Bowl.


Chase Daniel is a 31 year old Quarterback who has been a career backup. His career totals are 480 yards passing, 1 touchdown, 1 interception and a 81.1 QBR. Daniel is familiar with Nagy’s system and will be Trubisky’s primary backup and will help him learn the playbook, as well as the ins and outs of playing under Matt Nagy.


Tyler Bray is 26 years old and like Daniel, has been a career backup. He’s been less successful than Daniel, his only stat being one incomplete pass. Bray spent 5 seasons under Coach Nagy in Kansas City, and along with Daniel, will help Trubisky learn and adapt to the Matt Nagy system, and hopefully push him to thrive and lead this Bears team for many years to come.

Needless to say the Quarterback situation in Chicago this upcoming season revolves around Mitchell Trubisky learning Matt Nagy’s system. Nagy has stated multiple times he’s excited to work with Trubisky, and personally, I’m excited to see what will come out of Nagy and Trubisky working together.

Here are some highlights from one of Mitchell Trubisky’s best games last season.
