Bears’ Mitchell Trubisky says team has to ‘find ways to pull together’
The Chicago Bears aren’t quite where they want to be. After starting the season with Super Bowl aspirations, the Bears are 4-5 after nine weeks of 2019 play. Their quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, who is a catalyst for their demise, says they need to find ways to pull it all together.
“We’re not exactly where we want to be yet, but a win definitely gives you confidence moving forward because at the end of the day, no matter what you did you came away with the result you wanted and that’s a win,” Trubisky said on Wednesday, per the team’s official website. “We’ve still got to find ways to pull together, continue to work harder and get better and try to go 1-0 this week. That’s the focus and we’ve just got to continue to stick to that.”
Though the Bears aren’t where they want to be — which Trubisky will attest to — they still have the opportunity to save their season. Their next three games are winnable, with matchups against the regressing 5-4 Los Angeles Rams, hapless 2-8 New York Giants and potentially Matthew Stafford-less 3-5-1 coming up.
If Chicago were to turn their season around, they must get better play out of Trubisky, who has disappointed mightily in his third pro season. Winning out the next three weeks is a necessity; the four games after, they will face four teams currently in the, way too early, playoffs.
However, with the talent on-board, Chicago has the chance to run the table. Nonetheless, they will only go as far as Trubisky allows them to.
