2. Chemistry with playmakers

When the Bears spent all of 2018 revamping their receiving core, there were multiple new faces on the offense. Essentially, Mitchell Trubisky had to get comfortable with his new playmakers like Allen Robinson, Trey Burton, and Taylor Gabriel.

During the first few weeks of the 2018 season, it was clear that guys like Robinson and Burton weren’t on the same page with Trubisky. However, as the season progressed, both sides gained more confidence in each other and became more comfortable with Matt Nagy’s offense as well.

The chemistry that Trubisky has built with his playmakers is a major reason why he’ll be much better in year three. Essentially, some of the best NFL quarterback-wide receiver relationships took well over a full year to develop. For example, Tom Brady and Julian Edelman have developed a solid relationship over the years and as a result, the Patriots continue to reap the rewards of it.

One player who seems to have built a solid relationship with Trubisky is Allen Robinson. All throughout 2018, Robinson was targeted nine games where he was targeted seven or more times. It’s clear that going into 2019, Robinson is set to be Trubisky’s primary target.

Being on the same page as your playmakers can do wonders for a quarterback in the NFL. Considering Trubisky and his playmakers spent all of 2018 building solid relationships, 2019 will be a year where Trubisky can reap the rewards of what he built in 2018.
