The Facts: Trubisky is thrilled with the strides that he and his offensive teammates are making in their second year together in the system. “I think ‘smooth’ is really a good word to describe how things are going,” Trubisky said.
Diehards Line:“Everyone’s on the same page. Everyone knows what they’re doing in Year 2 in this offense, so it’s a lot of fun just getting out there and going through it and just being even more detailed than we were last year within each play.” HC Matt Nagy has been impressed with the deeper understanding of the offense that Trubisky has gained since first being introduced to the system a little over a year ago. It’s enabling the Bears quarterback to make changes before the ball is snapped based on what he sees from the defense—something that Trubisky wasn’t always able to do last season when he was still digesting the playbook. “Last year he learned it; this year he’s really trying to master it,” Nagy said. “He’s done a wonderful job right now at trying to get to some of the adjustments we have within the plays and the concepts and the schemes. Hopefully within a few months from now when we get to training camp and preseason you all see that in game situations.” Trubisky excelled in game situations last year. The second pick in the 2017 draft was voted to his first Pro Bowl after passing for 3,223 yards with 24 touchdowns and a 95.4 passer rating while helping lead the Bears to a 12-4 record and the NFC North title. Trubisky, however, is already showing signs in OTAs that this season could be even more special.
