Matt Nagy says Bears will stick with Mitch Trubisky at QB

Share

For better or worse, the 2019 Bears are married to quarterback Mitch Trubisky. With no viable option behind the former second overall pick, and a general manager and head coach so invested in Trubisky's development, he'll remain the starter entering Week 9 despite a disastrous second half in Sunday's 17-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Nagy confirmed Trubisky will remain under center when he met with the media at Halas Hall on Monday.

Nagy, who said he believes there's still time left in the season for Trubisky to develop into the quarterback they expect him to be, said he completed some special passes in Week 8 despite the obvious focus on his ill-advised interception and inexcusable overthrow of Taylor Gabriel in the fourth quarter.

Through six starts this season, Trubisky's completed 64.6% of his passes for 1,092 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. His stats are pretty indicative of his less-than-pedestrian play now 32 starts into his career.

Nagy confirming Trubisky will remain the starter isn't much of a surprise. If, however, Trubisky continues to struggle down the stretch, that commitment won't be there this offseason.
