Bears HC Matt Nagy enjoys that Mitchell Trubisky has a higher passer rating than Tom Brady
Trubisky’s 105.6 passer rating puts him ahead of Brady’s 98.2 rating by quite a wide margin. According to Patrick Finley of the Sun-Times, Nagy was clearly pleased upon hearing that tid bit:
Reporter says Bears QB Mitch Trubisky has a higher passer rating than Tom Brady.
Matt Nagy smiles.
“Do you wanna say that one more time?”
Of course, it should be noted that passer rating is one of the most misleading stats in football. They hardly ever tell the story of the true impact a quarterback has on the game. It is no secret that Trubisky is part of the vast majority of quarterbacks in this league that do not compare to Brady. However, there is still good reason for Nagy to be excited.
There was plenty of optimism surrounding Chicago’s offense coming into the 2018 NFL season. The arrival of Nagy and several playmakers over the last two years solidified this notion. Things got off to a bit of a slow start, however, the offense has made some tremendous strides over the last couple of weeks. Trubisky has posted back-to-back 300-yards games while throwing nine touchdowns and just one interception during that span. More importantly, it is clear that he has developed quite a rapport with his supporting cast.
Chicago faces its biggest challenge yet this week versus New England. It is safe to assume that Nagy and Trubisky care much more about beating Brady on the field than in the stat sheet.
