Mitchell Trubisky receives low Pro Football Focus grade for Week 1


Both the offense and defense collapsed for the Bears in Week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, with plenty of blame to go around.

The coaching staff deserves its fair share of that, but some players did more to help the cause than others.

Pro Football Focus put out its player grades from Sunday night’s stunner, and Mitchell Trubisky was among the Bears with low marks for his performance.

The young quarterback received a 52.6 overall grade on their 0-100 scale, making him the 25th highest-graded quarterback out of the 30 eligible passers that played on Sunday.

Trubisky’s two fumbles hurt his grade a lot, but he also struggled under pressure with a passer rating of just 58.8, compared to 80.3 from a clean pocket.

On the positive side, Khalil Mack and Akiem Hicks were the two highest-graded Bears players with big performances rushing the passer.

The star outside linebacker recorded a sack and five quarterback hurries on 32 pass rushing snaps, while Hicks had two total pressures and four total “stops” in the game.

Offensively, Charles Leno Jr. and Kyle Long led the way with two hurries allowed on 46 pass blocking snaps. PFF credited Trubisky with being at fault for all four of the sacks he took in the game.

Week 1 was certainly a learning opportunity for these young Bears, but the first half provided plenty of building blocks to work off of moving forward.
