The hype around Mitch Trubisky is growing, but the Chicago Bears rookie quarterback isn't buying it.
"I don't know what hype you're talking about," Trubisky said. "I don't pay attention to it. It's good to be back at Halas. Finished up camp pretty well. We've just got to continue to bring the energy and keep getting better every day like we have so far. We've still got a lot of work to do. But it's good to be back here and getting back at it."
The Bears' offense came alive when Trubisky took over in last week's preseason game. He completed 18 of 25 passes for 166 yards and picked up three first downs running the ball.
"I've still got a lot of work to do," Trubisky said. "I was pleased with how I played, but plenty more mistakes are going on in practice for me that I need to work on and continue to improve in my game and make sure when I go out there that I'm doing my job to help other people do their job. I think it just showed me that I'm making progress, that I could go out there and lead and do my job like I wanted to show. But it was just a small sample; it was the first game and you've just got to continue to be consistent in reproducing that. That's why we're out here working and practicing."
