Bears WR Allen Robinson seeing growth in Mitchell Trubisky

Mitchell Trubisky Allen Robinson

Chicago Bears wide receiver Allen Robinson swears by Mitchell Trubisky’s growth as a quarterback.

More specifically, Robinson told 670 The Score Bears reporter Chris Emma on May 29 Trubisky’s ability to dissect a defense has earned the respect of his teammates.

Trubisky didn’t experience the dreaded sophomore slump during the 2018 NFL season. He helped the Bears register a gaudy 12-4 (.750) win-loss record. More importantly, he helped The Monsters of the Midway earn their first postseason berth in eight years. Unfortunately, the Bears lost to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 2018 NFC Wild Card Game.

Nonetheless, Trubisky’s 3,223 passing yards and 24 touchdown passes last season should be indicative of things to come.

Bear in mind Trubisky threw for just seven touchdown passes during his rookie season in 2017. Increasing his total to 24 in 2018 is hard evidence of Robinson’s claim. Trubisky’s ability to read the defense has improved drastically.

Trubisky also connected with Robinson in the end zone four times during the regular season. We should see more of that in 2019.

For his part, Bears head coach Matt Nagy told ESPN’s Jeff Dickerson in the aftermath of the heartbreaking loss to the Eagles in January Chicago is “lucky” to have Trubisky.

Nobody truly knows how far that kid’s come this year more than me…we’re lucky to have him.

I’m looking forward to the future because the city of Chicago is lucky to have that kid at quarterback.

It seems both Robinson and Nagy are on the same page. We should more of Mitchell Trubisky’s growth as the Chicago Bears quarterback during the 2019 NFL season.
