Press Conference: Mitch Trubisky Previews Bears/Packers, Talks Expectations for Offense
Heading into his second year in the NFL — and his first year heading into the season as a starter — quarterback Mitch Trubisky put a lot of work into learning Matt Nagy’s new offense and getting the chemistry down with his potent new targets. After a long offseason of training camp and preseason, Trubisky is just ready to get out on the field.
And when it comes to a Chicago Bears/Green Bay Packers rivalry game, the anticipation is even greater.
“A lot of anticipation leading up to the first game,” Trubisky said Wednesday at Halas Hall. “It seems like it’s been a long offseason, preseason and training camp heading into this opportunity, and I know the guys and myself are very eager for this game.”
When it comes to acclimating to Nagy’s new offense, Trubisky has seen himself making strides and growing more and more comfortable.
“I feel a lot more comfortable in my role,” Trubisky said. “I feel a lot more comfortable with the offense and what I need to do, and having more responsibility on my shoulders and just being more of a leader this year and more vocal and having guys look at me.
“I just feel like I know my job and I know what to do and I’m just a lot more comfortable and excited for the opportunity to just go out there and play with my guys. We’ve been waiting for a long time. Seems like the longest offseason [with] those five preseason games and [starters] not being able to play [a lot]. We’re very anxious to get out there and just let loose.”
