Mitch Trubisky and his new weapons

The last time Mitch Trubisky faced the Packers, Dontrelle Inman, Kendall Wright and Josh Bellamy were his top receivers. General manager Ryan Pace did a tremendous job this offseason of fixing that. This time around, Trubisky will be throwing to Taylor Gabriel, Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller and Trey Burton. That’s quite an upgrade.

Then, you factor in that Trubisky has grown as a quarterback heading into his second season. Will there be some mistakes? Of course. However, there will also be a much more mature and experienced quarterback heading up to Lambeau.

New head coach Matt Nagy will also have a much more creative game plan than anything former coordinator Dowell Loggains could come up with. Nagy will have plays that he feels will actually work against new Packers’ coordinator Mike Pettine.

Nagy will also have the element of surprise up his sleeve. Since Nagy hardly played any of his starters or ran much of the actual offense, nobody really knows what plays to expect. Pettine will be watching the last five years of the Kansas City Chiefs offense trying to come up with an idea. He’s more than welcome to do that, but it’s not going to give him all of the answers. I’m sure Nagy will have added a lot of new plays/wrinkles, especially with offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich being on the staff.

I’m not convinced that the additions of Josh Jackson and Jaire Alexander will be able to stop the Bears. Those are very young corners that will be outsmarted by veteran receivers like Robinson and Gabriel. If the Packers go with the more experienced corners like Tramon Williams and Kevin King then good luck trying to keep up with the speed of the Bears.
