Ive changed my mind. Just seemed a bit wishy washy. To go from "i dont know why people havent realized he is an elite young qb in this league" during the offseason. To how critical you were through first few games. To now you would take him over Watson and Mahomes...and he WILL be a very good WB for several years.
I know you didnt bury him when you were critical. But you seem to jump pretty far a few times in a short period of time. Id call that flakey.
Not flaky, just an overreaction. I am from the Chicago area so all my ffball buddies back home are Bears fans. Most of them didn't like the Trubisky trade and haven't let up that it was a mistake. I prob let them get to me a little when they keep texting me on every bad throw, even though I point out the good ones he makes also, the body language is what made the bad throws seem even worse in the moment.
Just because I think Trubisky is going to be very good, it doesn't mean he isn't above criticism. He deserved it. Most guys who I think will be high end have supreme body language and confidence. Trubisky seemed to make poor decisions running and throwing, and then he was getting down on himself. It's just not something we see a whole lot from the higher end guys on the confidence part of their game. Jameis Winston is not very good at all, but the dude doesn't have a conscience. He could have 5 terrible throws in a row and come back out bombs away like nothing happened. So it did worry me that, although I didn't doubt his high end talent, maybe his head wasn't going to be able to allow him to reach his potential.
The TB defense is terrible. The 6 TDs are not the important part. It was the throws themselves. Maybe Nagy goes back to a more conservative game plan, and maybe Trubisky has more to go on the mental end of it and doesn't come close to this weeks performance for a while? I don't know. Maybe he never quite gets the full confidence of a superstar? I am just pumped that the Bears have a guy with this much talent on the team. Plus, his running ability is pretty high end for a QB also.
