As Mitchell Trubisky enters his third season as the Chicago Bears starting Quarterback, is he ready to finally become a true franchise quarterback?

There’s no denying the fact that the Chicago Bears are all-in on Mitchell Trubisky. General Manager Ryan Pace stated that when he traded up for Trubisky two years ago in the 2017 NFL Draft.

During the 2018 offseason, the Bears did everything that they could in order to ensure that Trubisky would take a major step forward. The Bears hired an offensive mind in Matt Nagy, spent wisely in free agency bringing in playmakers like Allen Robinson and Trey Burton in an effort to help Trubisky’s development.

From an outsiders view, most view Trubisky’s 2018 season as a total bust. Some will say that he didn’t look like a real NFL Quarterback. However, it’s clear that in 2018, Trubisky’s 2018 season was filled with far more positives than negatives.

It can in fact be argued that Trubisky’s 2018 season was his real rookie season in the NFL instead of his 2017 season. In 2018, Trubisky was given legitimate targets to throw to and not guys who should probably be on an NFL practice squad.

Despite not taking the NFL by storm like Patrick Mahomes or Carson Wentz did in their second seasons in the NFL, Trubisky still showed tons of promise. By the end of the season, he was fully able to go through progressions and seemed confident in his ability to fully run Matt Nagy’s offense.

As Trubisky enters his third full season with the Bears, is he ready to become a true franchise quarterback for the Bears? Yes. However, what are some factors that will allow for Trubisky to become an actual franchise quarterback? We’ll breakdown five reasons why he’s ready to make such a leap.
