Carr Says Mitch Trubisky ‘Poised to Take the Next Step’
The future is young and bright with the Chicago Bears. And a big part of that hope and optimism stems from quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who is coming off a rookie season which was impressive given the circumstances.
There are a ton of young quarterbacks that are poised to “take the next step,” as former quarterback David Carr wrote.
Trubisky finds himself among a list of five young, talented, and promising quarterbacks, including Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, Deshaun Watson, and Jimmy Garoppolo.
Here’s what Carr had to say about Trubisky:
Mitchell Trubisky, Chicago Bears: In Year 1, Trubisky operated a pretty traditional offense. He wasn’t asked to do too much schematically, and he did a solid job with that. It was a year of learning and getting acclimated to the NFL. Bringing in Matt Nagy, who elevated Alex Smith‘s career in Kansas City, puts Trubisky in a perfect situation. Trubisky showed enough in his first year — toughness, accuracy, leadership — that he can be a good quarterback, so with the Bears‘ defense, run game, offensive line and Nagy, Trubisky is poised to take the next step.
