The Chicago Bears are committed to starting Mitchell Trubisky at quarterback in 2020.
"To be clear, yes it is," Ryan Pace said Tuesday morning at the NFL combine, when asked if the Bears' commitment to Trubisky is unchanged. "We believe in Mitch. Mitch knows he needs to be better. We need to be better around him. And that's our goal."
Trubisky finished the year 28th in total QBR (39.4), tied for 27th in touchdown passes (17), 21st in passing yards (3,138), 32nd in yards gained per pass attempt (6.1) and 28th in traditional quarterback rating (83.0).
"I think every quarterback is growing in different areas, and a big growth for a quarterback is understanding coverages, mastering your offense, being comfortable with all the new things coordinators are throwing at you," Pace said.
"... I remember with Drew [Brees], he went through that in 2004 in San Diego; just immersed himself in that. That's Mitch's mindset right now. Just being obsessed with learning NFL defenses, mastering our offense. And when you do those things, it allows you to play faster and with better instincts."
