1. Continuity in Matt Nagy’s offense

Continuity seems to be one of the most overlooked factors when discussing why Trubisky will breakout in year three. If you look at any great NFL Quarterback (Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Russell Wilson), what is one thing that allows for them to post excellent numbers each year? The fact that they have been in the same offensive system for multiple years.

The last time the Bears had a “franchise quarterback”, the team decided to have three offensive coordinators in three years, which basically ensured that Jay Cutler would never succeed. However, Ryan Pace is hoping to change that trend with the hiring of Matt Nagy.

2018 was all about getting familiar with the basics of Matt Nagy’s offense. It was clear that the Trubisky improved tremendously as the season went on. As a result, the Bears coaching staff was able to give Trubisky a little bit more to handle each week.

Heading into 2019, Trubisky will be expected to fully implement Nagy’s offense. He’s had a full season to learn the system now he needs to put all the pieces to the puzzle together. Despite the fact that Nagy’s offense is a complex one, Trubisky showed enough promise in 2018 to prove that this is an offensive system that he’s fully capable of handling.
