2. Mitch Trubisky
It is only natural for a guy who plays the quarterback position to have some struggles early on, and while great in his first full year, he can be even better going forward. Mitchell Trubisky played so well in 2018 that he was selected to replace Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff in the 2019 Pro Bowl, as Goff is preparing to play in Super Bowl LIII.
Trubisky now has one full season under his belt as the starting quarterback in Chicago. The chemistry with the rest of the players on offense is something that grew in 2018 and it will continue to grow as we move along.
In 2018, Mitch Trubisky had an outstanding season. He completed 66 percent of his passes and had 24 touchdowns to just 12 interceptions. His total QBR was 72.8 and that ranked third in the entire NFL, a league with some obviously very good quarterbacks. The fact that these great statistics came from his first full season as the starter shows that he has all the potential in the world. How do you improve on that? Well if he does, something special could be on the horizon for Chicago.
What if they had a superstar quarterback on top of an elite defense? That is what the organization and its fans are hoping for right now. That is something that has never really happened for this team. There is no better time than the present.
It is only natural that there is progression as head coach Matt Nagy continues to implement his system and use his offensive mind to better everyone around him, that Trubisky will improve at a high rate. All signs pointed to a high rate of improvement throughout 2018, and he should only continue on that path.
Trubisky will have to grow into the type of quarterback that can make others around him better. If you look at the two quarterbacks playing in this years Super Bowl, Tom Brady and Jared Goff, they are two MVP caliber players at their position and make everyone around them better.
One of them is the greatest to ever live, and the other is a young gun who will be here competing at a high level for many years to come. Mitch can evolve just like Goff did as time went on. He was a highly-touted player in college and he has now reached the tip of his potential. Trubisky, like Goff, was a high draft pick and has the potential to elevate his game in the same type of way.
With a few adjustments to the roster on offense and the evolution of Trubisky, this offense will compliment the elite defense en route to a Super Bowl Championship next season.
