Loser: Mitch Trubisky

Hear me out: Mitch Trubisky played well enough for the Bears to win.

Unfortunately, well enough isn’t typically good enough to win in the NFL. Tonight, the defense won the Bears the game.

Trubisky looked good on the opening drive again, completing 6-of-7 passes, capping off the drive with a touchdown. However, it wasn’t nearly that smooth from then on.

Trubisky finished 25-of-34 for 200 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. While one pick was on a deflected pass, the other one was on a horribly under-thrown deep ball.

Besides the mistakes in the box score, Trubisky made several other poor decisions throughout the contest. There were a couple of times where Trubisky either picked the wrong opening to run through on options or scrambles, or where he just flat out made up his mind too early.

Trubisky also missed on a couple of deep balls where his man was wide open, and made a handful of other throws that were lucky not to be picked off. These are mistakes that didn’t hurt the Bears in the long run, but that won’t always be the case.

Trubisky continues to show flashes of what he could be at his absolute best. However, the constant mistakes continue to drag him deeper into the hole of mediocrity. Mediocre quarterbacks rarely win Super Bowls.

The Bears might’ve been winners on Monday night, but their franchise quarterback was certainly a loser.
