Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 9 vs PHI (10 / 21 / 125 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 15 / 0 rush)
Mitchell Trubisky struggled again on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles. Trubisky has consistently looked skittish in the pocket this season and Sunday was no different. He repeatedly bailed on throws in the face of pressure and missed several throws as a result of the bad footwork. His success in the game came on a deep throw to Taylor Gabriel that set the Bears up in scoring position. He also had a rushing attempt in the red zone that came up just short of the end zone. Trubisky has been a season-long cap on the Chicago offense and this performance did nothing to quell calls for his benching. His performance screams of a player with zero confidence and a fear of the pocket. If he is not benched, he will face Detroit next Sunday at home.
2019 Week 8 vs LAC (23 / 35 / 253 / 0 / 1 pass, 4 / 10 / 0 rush)
Mitchell Trubisky started against the Chargers after a dismal performance last week. Trubisky was again a limiting element to the offense as he struggled with decision making and accuracy. The Bears tried to play close to the vest with a run centric and short passing game approach after Trubisky struggled last week but the design did not help. He was particularly weak in the red zone, including a trip where he had a snuffed out shovel pass to Cordarelle Patterson, a near interception, a batted ball, and a broken up pass, which forced the Bears to settle for a field goal despite a penalty during the sequence that placed the Bears on the one yard line for first and goal. Trubisky had another bad sequence three-play sequence in the second half where he threw an interception late to the perimeter, then missed Taylor Gabriel deep on a possible long touchdown, before losing a fumble in the pocket. Trubisky also took a couple of bad sacks, including one that knocked the Bears out of field goal range on third down. Trubisky had some success during the game, including passes across the middle to Tarik Cohen, Trey Burton, and Anthony Miller, but he continues to be too inconsistent to create consistent success for the Bears offense. Trubisky will look to rebound next week against the Eagles.
2019 Week 7 vs NO (34 / 54 / 251 / 2 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
Mitchell Trubisky struggled mightily against the Saints. The scoreboard did not do the performance justice as the Bears returned a kick for a touchdown and scored two touchdowns late in garbage time. Trubisky was bad throughout the game. He was indecisive on throws and frequently off-target. He looked to consistently feel pressure, even when he had good protection. He had no ability to move the offense until late in the game when the Bears were down four quarters. Trubisky threw multiple balls that should have been intercepted but was lucky to have balls broken up by receivers and defenders to be out of bounds. Trubisky's stat line looked better than he played because he threw two touchdown passes deep in garbage time, one to Allen Robinson and another to Javon Wims. Trubisky is holding back a championship-caliber defense and special team unit. His job could be in danger, but Chase Daniel struggled when he last played in relief of Trubisky. He will look to bounce back against the Chargers next week.
2019 Week 4 vs MIN (2 / 3 / 9 / 0 / 0 pass, 0 / 0 / 0 rush)
The Chicago Bears beat the Minnesota Vikings based on a strong defensive performance. Chicago lost starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky to an injury on his non-throwing shoulder. Chase Daniel replaced Trubisky and kept the offense on schedule and turned to Allen Robinson as a feature element in the passing game. David Montgomery dominated the running back touches but struggled to create yards in the running game.
2019 Week 3 vs WAS (25 / 31 / 231 / 3 / 1 pass, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
Mitchell Trubisky had a better fantasy performance against the Washington Redskins after struggling in the first two weeks. Trubisky benefitted from great field position set up by the Chicago defense and threw two red zone touchdowns Taylor Gabriel on open targets. His best threw of the night was on a scramble where he got outside of the pocket and was able to throw the ball down the field to Taylor Gabriel who made a terrific catch along the sideline for a touchdown. While the fantasy performance was better, the Bears gave Trubisky a highly schemed game plan early in the game that sought to make his throws easier than the first two weeks of the season, but he struggled with accuracy and was unable to consistently move the offense. He was inaccurate on throws throughout the night, particularly when he was under pressure. Trubisky's accuracy problems and his struggles with pressure are a continued trend that needs to be rectified for the Chicago offense to consistently move the ball in games where the offense is not gifted field position. Trubisky faces a stiff test against the Vikings on short rest in week four.
2019 Week 2 vs DEN (16 / 27 / 120 / 0 / 0 pass, 1 / 8 / 0 rush)
Mitchell Trubisky struggled for the second consecutive week in a win against the Denver Broncos. The Bears kept Trubisky's throws close to the vest, with Trubisky's downfield targets only coming out of necessity in a comeback attempt. Fortunately for Trubisky, he was able to step up and make a couple throws to win the game on the final drive, including a ball across the middle to an inexplicably wide-open Allen Robinson to set the Bears up for a game-winning field goal. Trubisky otherwise struggled, missing open throws and looking skittish in the pocket. Trubisky's pocket awareness was lacking as he looked indecisive and struggled with accuracy under pressure. The Bears have a championship-caliber defense, but Trubisky needs to play better than 4.4 yards per attempt for the Bears to play at a high level and to support the fantasy prospects of Allen Robinson.
2019 Week 1 vs GB (26 / 45 / 228 / 0 / 1 pass, 3 / 11 / 0 rush)
Mitchell Trubisky struggled against the revamped Green Bay Packers defense in the opening game of the NFL season. He struggled throughout, with nine out of the first ten drives finishing in punts while the other was a field goal. His best success was throwing to Allen Robinson on the perimeter for two tight catches, but otherwise, he was ineffective. Trubisky threw a bad interception intended for Robinson in the end zone that he both stared down and threw off his back foot, allowing the safety to make an easy interception. He also threw multiple passes inaccurately along the sideline, forcing receivers out of bounds on catches. He was not helped, by drops from Robinson and Tarik Cohen, but Trubisky's struggles in his progressions in the pocket and his inaccuracy are his own. Things do not get easier for Trubisky in week two against a good Denver defense, but he will, fortunately, have 10 days to regroup.

He also ran for 15 yards. Our View: We'll keep the benching watch going this week, although the team would be admitting their franchise quarterback isn't better than Chase Daniel. With few if any gimmes left on the schedule, the Bears are at crossroads and both directions lead to dead ends.
