Bears’ Trubisky vows to move on from shaky opener

Bears predictions Everyone is riding with the 0-1 Monsters of the Midway

Bears predictions Everyone is riding with the 0-1 Monsters of the Midway

A shaky performance in a season-opening loss at Green Bay on Sunday night wasn't the way Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky wanted to start his second season. "Tarik (Cohen) was the first option in the flat". So that was the big positive takeaway for me.

More SEWP for you!

"But it's a little less wide open when you're playing it full motion on film".

"Trust me, I'm hard on myself". You want touchdowns, not field goals. "I know we can't see that right now, and that's my message to the team". Trubisky appeared to be running through his reads and just happened to look to Burton late. Against Green Bay, he did not get picked off or throw for any TDs.

"Trey (Burton) is one of the options, but it's later on in the progression", coach Matt Nagy said. It's one of those plays where you - how risky are you going to be? "That's not Mitch's fault for not seeing that".

"You've got to know as a quarterback, if that opens up, take your chances and get it to the guy wide open", he said.

Trubisky connected with Taylor Gabriel for a 5-yard loss, forcing Chicago to settle for a field goal.

Another example: Trubisky, after Sunday's game, mentioned he felt like he got "happy feet" in the pocket on some occasions.

Did Nagy make some bad play calls in the second half on third-and-short that very well might have changed the outcome of the game if they were converted? "Yes, it helps our offense in some areas, but it can also get me into trouble when I don't need to. But I thought I put myself and my team in a good position in that instance, first quarter, check it down, three points, we're up 10-0".

"You try to simulate that as much as possible but the best place to do that is in the game".

A date for her exit hasn't been set yet, the insider said, but sources speculate she'll step down in the next couple of weeks. In a statement, she said she would be off for a few days, but she did not address the allegations against her husband.

"It's one game, and I understand the magnitude of it, but we also need to keep an idea here of where we're at". He was quick to scramble rather than stay in the pocket. "That'd be something I'll be working on in my career but definitely more emphasis this week". He couldn't move the Bears past midfield in the closing minutes when all they needed was a field goal after Green Bay went ahead. I got to just continue to work, get better every single day and realize that's the kind of level we are at and those are the expectations. Then once you get that first down, then another first down. Like we saw from the other team, you just didn't get down underneath, a missed tackle can turn into a big play.

But when I go all Mike Royko, Red Smith or Jerry Magee on you - not that I could or ever will be worthy of walking in any of those giants' shoes - and am delivering a column, the job is quite different. And that comes from me. "I just got to do what I got to do".

Trubisky won't become the quarterback he wants to be exclusively based on a good feel for self-criticism and noticing his mistakes.

"That guy is powerful man", Mack said.

"Last year it was more, 'Oh he's a rookie, growing pains, '" Trubisky said.

Trubisky's 13 National Football League starts aren't enough by any form of evaluation to define or stamp what he ultimately grows into as a player and what type of quarterback he evolves into being.

"Just being me", he said.

"I think so, yeah", Nagy said.

It's time for him to become the quarterback who will be the reason the Bears win several games this season. But I'm not going to hold any extra pressure over my head or doing anything more.

"Admit your mistakes, correct them and move on", Nagy said Friday.
