Mitchell Trubisky was drafted by the Bears with their first pick this past April for a reason-his great potential and talent.
That doesn’t mean he’ll end this year going to the Pro Bowl-rookie QBs rarely do. Mitchell has a playbook far more complex than the one he studied at North Carolina, and far faster, more complex defenses.
It’s not that Mitchell will never lead the Bears deep into the playoffs-its just that his rookie season will be as tough as it will be for Bears fans. Peyton Manning wasn’t able to turn things around his rookie season, so why would you expect Trubisky to.
Bears fans have hope-a quarterback they have to turn things around the next few seasons. That doesn’t mean they should expect that turnaround to start this season.
