In an article on NFL.com, ex-NFL quarterback David Carr includes the Bears’ Mitchell Trubisky as one of five quarterbacks whose stock is on the rise heading into the offseason.
After showing promise as a rookie, Trubisky will look to elevate his game in his second season while working with new head coach Matt Nagy and offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich.
“In Year 1, Trubisky operated a pretty traditional offense,” Carr wrote. “He wasn’t asked to do too much schematically, and he did a solid job with that. It was a year of learning and getting acclimated to the NFL. Bringing in Matt Nagy, who elevated Alex Smith’s career in Kansas City, puts Trubisky in a perfect situation.
“Trubisky showed enough in his first year—toughness, accuracy, leadership—that he can be a good quarterback, so with the Bears’ defense, run game, offensive line and Nagy, Trubisky is poised to take the next step.”
Selected by the Bears with the second pick in the draft, Trubisky started the final 12 games of his rookie season, completing 59.4 percent of his passes for 2,193 yards with seven touchdowns, seven interceptions and a 77.5 passer rating. He also rushed for 248 yards and two TDs.
Nagy and Helfrich are both known for their ability to develop quarterbacks. Nagy helped Alex Smith lead the NFL with a 104.7 passer rating last season with the Chiefs, while Helfrich assisted in Heisman Trophy winner Marcus Mariota’s development at Oregon.
Carr puts Trubisky in excellent company, listing the 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo, the Texans’ Deshaun Watson, the Eagles’ Carson Wentz and the Rams’ Jared Goff as the other quarterbacks whose stock is on the rise. Interestingly, Carr includes his brother—the Raiders’ Derek Carr—among five quarterbacks who are in a “state of confusion.”

Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy tapped Mark Helfrich to be his offensive coordinator in an effort to develop a diverse offense, and, more importantly, help grow quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
The QB was the main topic of Helfrich’s first meeting with the media Thursday. Given that the Bears haven’t had a Pro Bowl player at the sport’s most vital position since 1985, it’s understandable that locals want to know what the new coordinator plans for the QB.
Helfrich praised Trubisky as a “coachable” quarterback. The new OC also sees “a lot” of similarities between Trubisky and quarterback Marcus Mariota, whom Helfrich helped develop at Oregon.
“Mitchell has a tight release,” Helfrich said, via the Chicago Tribune. “He’s an accurate passer. They also have a couple of things similar that make them inaccurate. Their feet take them out of position. I sense from talking to a couple of offensive linemen, and this was unsolicited, when your offensive linemen are talking about how hard your quarterback works, that’s a great sign.”
Helfrich spent Mariota’s freshman year at Oregon as the OC and quarterbacks coach under Chip Kelly. Helfrich then took over as head coach for Mariota’s final two seasons in Eugene.
Comparing Trubisky to Mariota seems like an apt association. Both players are very accurate and both own athleticism to burn defenses with their legs.
The Bears didn’t ask Trubisky to do much as a rookie, but he displayed that accuracy, especially on the move, and improved throughout the season, showing an ability to get through his progressions.
The comparison between Trubisky and Mariota is interesting coming off a year in which the latter regressed. The Titans fired coach Mike Mularkey in effect because the team didn’t believe the coaching staff could help Mariota take the next leap forward.
In Chicago, the development of Trubisky is job No. 1 for Nagy and Helfrich. If they fail to build the quarterback, the duo will suffer the same fate as Mariota’s last coach.
