Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky excited to face Tom Brady for first time
For some players facing Tom Brady is a scary experience but Chicago Bears second-year quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is excited about the chance.
“He’s just really been able to push the limits at what can be accomplished at this position and how everybody looks at it,” Trubisky said. “So, he’s really taking this thing to new levels. It will be cool to compete against him this weekend.”
Brady might be 17 years older than Trubisky but he is still playing like a young quarterback in this league. He has thrown for 1599 yards, 13 touchdowns, and six interceptions. He has been the face of the New England Patriots franchise and that is something the Bears hope that they have with Trubisky.
Trubisky has shown huge signs of growth from his rookie season, but there is still a lot more growing to be done. Last year Trubisky threw seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in 12 starts. This year under Matt Nagy Trubisky has 1261 yards, 11 touchdowns, and four interceptions in five games. Trubisky has still shown his youth at times and will be in for a tough challenge on Sunday when he faces a Bill Belichick led defense.
The Bears haven’t had a lot of tests this year and the Patriots will be a good test to see exactly where this team is. After Sunday it should be known if this is a team that can compete this year in the NFC North, or are they still a year or two away from taking that next step forward.
