The key to how much improvement we see from the Bears this coming season will be how much Mitchell Trubisky develops and how he well he grasps Matt Nagy’s offense. So far this spring all signs are pointing in the right direction.

As a rookie Trubisky was limited by the Bears former coaching staff. They didn’t want to ask him to do too much. The results were a conservative offense. That won’t be the case this year. Trubisky will be asked to guide a complex offense that’s designed around Trubisky and the guys around him making plays and attacking defenses.

“It’s a wide open attack and it’s a great offense because there’s so many options within it,” said Trubisky Wednesday during the Bears’ mini camp. I think the system fits the players we have and in particular I feel it really fits my skill-set with the RPOs, the quick game, stretching the ball down the field.”

Trubisky is encouraged by how well everyone is picking up the offense.

“The guys and the coaches we just have a great understanding of this offense and the way they’ve taught it.”

A dynamic offense with a dynamic quarterback at the controls….when is the last time we could say that about a Bears’ team?  It won’t happen though if Trubisky doesn’t make big strides.

Perhaps the best measurement of Trubisky’s growth is the improvement his teammates have seen in him both as a player and as a leader.

“He still has those great leadership qualities telling everybody in the huddle, ‘Focus up. Right here on this play we’ve got to do this, execute this.’ Whatever it may be and every day he’s just bringing it,” says offensive tackle Charles Leno.

“It’s in his nature to be a leader,” says running back Tarik Cohen. “Your starting quarterback you have to have that in you to be successful in this league.”

It all sounds good, but Trubisky knows there will be moments where he and the offense will have some growing pains.

“It’s a part of the process just knowing that there’s going to be bumps in the road and just to have that mentality that we’re getting better every single day learning from our mistakes. We all believe in coach Nagy’s plan and it’s going really well.”
