4. Mitch Trubisky, Chicago Bears
Despite reaching the Pro Bowl and helping the Chicago Bears win the NFC North title last season, Mitch Trubisky still has work to do.
The good news for Bears fans is that Trubisky played well at the key moments in the team’s playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. With the game on the line, he stepped up and made some incredible throws to set up a potential game-winning field (which was missed, of course).
But so far, Trubisky has been inconsistent. He finished his second season with 3,223 passing yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.
One area Trubisky is particularly strong is his rushing ability. He’s made a number of key plays on the ground, which makes him tough to defend. Trubisky had 421 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns in 2018.
Trubisky needs to become a more consistent passer to reach the next level, but he’s still young and is entering his third season, and second in Matt Nagy’s offense. If he can improve his accuracy and consistency, Trubisky can become a very good quarterback.
Bears fans have reason to be excited. Their team has an elite defense, a creative offense with lots of talent, and a young quarterback with a ton of potential.
