Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky uses Michael Jordan as motivation before road games
If Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky needs motivation, where else could he get it than from the man who is undoubtedly the greatest figure in Chicago sports history. That’s exactly what the 26-year-old does whenever the Bears are on the road. Trubisky spends his hours prior to the game watching “The Last Dance,” the epic documentary featuring Michael Jordan and the 1997-98 Chicago Bulls.
Chicago Bears QB Mitch Trubisky said that he watches the Last Dance every time the team goes on a road game.
Trubisky: "I'm trying to replicate that mindset. I'm trying to write my own story and leave my legacy here with the Chicago Bears."

Well that’s certainly a great way to fire you up. The story of the Chicago Bulls legend and how his unrelenting fire to be great and win at all costs should definitely motivate you in a huge way.
This must be some sweet music to the ears of Bears fans. Trubisky will need all the inspiration he can get from basketball’s GOAT, with Chicago visiting Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints for a playoff game on Sunday.
The Bears are entering as big underdogs in the Wild Card showdown versus the Saints. Nonetheless, Trubisky is certainly going into the fight with the right kind of mindset:

Chicago indeed has nothing to lose given its underdog status. However, Trubisky could very well be playing for his future with the franchise.
While the quarterback played pretty well down the stretch of the season, his erratic play has the Bears in position to potentially go in a different direction at the position. They already tried Nick Foles this season after Trubisky struggled, and it’s unclear if he’ll be back for the 2021 season.
