After a rocky debut, Trubisky executed the Bears’ conservative game plan extremely well, ultimately leading to an overtime victory. They kept it simple for him with a number of bootlegs and screens, and while his 8-for-16 passing line isn’t impressive, six of the eight incompletions where throwaways as Trubisky did a fine job of taking care of the ball. He had two big-time throws on the afternoon, the first a nice pass on the run for a touchdown after avoiding a quick pressure and the second #BTT set up the game-winning field goal as he maneuvered the pocket and put the ball in a perfect spot to complete the dig route. Overall a safe, but solid, second outing for Trubisky

Feels like their being a little kind on a few of those throwaways. That preseason accuracy we saw jasnt quite shown up.


I agree with your take on this. He seemed to throw several balls way high/long of his receivers. Maybe that was him trying too hard to put it where "only his guy could get it," but it could have just as easily been rushed throws.

Yea. Presumably with the talent level closing, he's not getting clean looks quick enough. Hopefully as he adjusts to making reads, he has time to set himself and fire off accurate throws just like against second stringers/college guys.

Agree, a couple of those misses surprised me.

The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.
