All the movements of the Chicago Bears seem focused on Mitchell Trubisky, last year’s second global team, taking the next step.

Last season, the Chicago Bears were ranked as the worst air offensive thanks to an attack by conservative and largely obsolete for the NFL today.
That’s because on the wings was John Fox, one of the few NFL coaches capable of turning Peyton Manning into a conservative quarterback.
If Fox did that to Manning, it’s obvious that Mitchell Trubisky, the second global pick last year, suffered the same fate.
A season later, general manager Ryan Pace, who initially was reluctant to hand over the team’s keys to Trubisky, now seems willing to let go of his young passer and give him the opportunity to show that it is the future of the team. franchise.
The first step was to thank Fox, a defensive-minded trainer, and replace him with young Matt Nagy, who gets his first opportunity as head coach in the league. The change in position is focused solely on Trubisky’s progress as a passer.
Nagy was just one year as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator after four seasons as a quarterback coach in Kansas City.
During his season in charge of the attack, he was able to change the perception of the league around Alex Smith, who went from being an administrator of the game to one of the most prolific passers in the NFL.
Pace hopes it will have the same effect on Trubisky.
Obviously, Smith managed to impose personal marks in 2016 on pitched passes, completions, touchdowns, yards and rating in part to Nagy’s contribution and in part to the talent he was surrounded by such as running back Kareem Hunt, receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis. Kelce.
Pace also did the task in that regard during free agency by signing the best receiver available in Allen Robinson as a deep threat, Taylor Gabriel as a reliable option in short trajectories and tight end Trey Burton, all with multi-year contracts.
Those arrivals, coupled with the explosive running back Jordan Howard and the versatile Tarik Cohen open a whole deck of possibilities to Trubisky, who snatched all pretexts to take the next step next season.
Well, almost everyone. The Chicago offensive line is still a work in progress, to put it mildly, and it is undoubtedly the area that should be reinforced in the draft with greater urgency, as the team defensively ranked in the top 10 of the NFL allowing more than 30 points in a single occasion in the season.
