John Fox already gushing over Mitch Trubisky after rookie training camp
Chicago Bears head coach John Fox already coming out with praise of the rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky after his first showing
“You’ve got to get him up to speed in your offense,” Fox said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “So I think a guy, regardless of position, has to get comfortable and know what to do — and how to do it — and then just really cut loose and play.
“There’ll be a lot of classroom work — and thank God we’ve got all the off-season to do that. And I think he’ll do just fine.”
Just like every other Chicago Bears fan out there I want Mitch Trubisky to be the next great NFL quarterback. The number of picks that they gave up for him he’d better be good. After the three-day rookie minicamp, there are only a few bad takeaways but some positives too.
Some of the bad stuff
As reported Trubisky bobbled a few snaps, that is not a good sign to start off. It could have just been a little rust he was shaking off, but with the years he spent in college in a shotgun offense no one wants to see that. I can hear the crowd now during training camp booing him badly if it pokes it’s ugly head up again. I will be right there leading the charge. Mitch and Cody Whitehair need to become best friends up until then. Mitch can go over to Whitehair’s house for BBQ’s eat some steak and snap to each other until it’s second nature.
Some good stuff
Numerous coaches are already impressed with his arm strength and accuracy during rookie training camp. Accuracy is the number one thing I worry about with young QB’s in the NFL. The trait will make or break a player. He showed high velocity on his throws into some very tight windows. It took everyone by surprise. Of course, it’s in non-contact practices but putting the right foot forward to begin.

Mitch Trubisky only threw one interception the whole camp, and that was on a receiver breaking the wrong way on his route.
Also, he did a good job looking confident and commanding the huddle which is a good sign so far.
“Real down-to-earth guy. Very assertive with the way he calls everything,” said guard Jordan Morgan, a fifth-round pick. “He’s trying to be a commander out there, and that’s definitely something he has to show to the coaches moving forward if he expects to be the guy.”
Now, this is just rookie minicamp, but for Chicago Bears fans it’s an excellent showing at the very beginning of what everyone wants to see a very long and productive career.
