Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky ‘disappointed’ in his play against the Rams
The Chicago Bears beat the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night football, and that was despite a terrible performance by Mitchell Trubisky. Trubisky completed just over 50 percent of his throws for 110 yards, a touchdown, and three interceptions. After the game, Trubisky said he needs to settle down after being too amped up for the game and is hoping his play can improve the next few weeks.
“I’m pretty disappointed in myself, the way I played — especially being out two weeks,” Trubisky said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “It’s hard to be down when you get such a big win like that. I’ll get everything corrected. I’m going to go back to work, work really hard and play a lot better. But I’m just very proud of the way the team had my back.”
Trubisky missed a few games because of a shoulder injury but Bears coach Matt Nagy doesn’t think the struggles had to do with rust, rather he needs to do a better job of executing.
“It has nothing to do with rust,” coach Matt Nagy said Monday. “Both defenses had their own unique ways of making things happen. You’d like to have pinpoint accuracy on every throw. And there’s some that he was slightly off.
“But that’s my job, too, to make sure that I’m putting him in good positions with the play-calls that I have. And then we talk on the sideline and make sure that we’re on the same page. I think that’s the biggest thing.”
The Bears defense can carry them a long way, but if Trubisky continues to throw interceptions, that is something the team can’t have in the playoffs. Setting up playoff teams on a short field is not a good recipe for success and something that needs to be figured out the next few weeks.
