Wild card game vs. Eagles is why Bears’ Matt Nagy thinks Mitchell Trubisky will take next step

The Chicago Bears shocked the world by winning the NFC North Division and reaching the postseason in 2018. However, head coach Matt Nagy and quarterback Mitchell Trubisky won’t have the element of surprise next season with the rest of the NFL already on notice.

Nonetheless, Nagy believes his starting signal caller will soon take the next step, especially after encountering a teachable moment during the team’s wild card playoff loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

“The Eagles game,” Nagy said without hesitation, via The Athletic. “You know what I liked about it? At the end of the game, taking the team down in that situation. He made those couple of big throws there to give us a chance on a big stage.”

While the Bears continue to get better under the direction of Matt Nagy, it appears as though the up-and-coming NFC North franchise has always had faith in Trubisky, who will now enter his third NFL season.

“I felt it right away,” Nagy recently said of the team’s confidence in Trubisky. “I really did. I think really our team last year, it wasn’t even about that. I think it was about me. When were they going to buy into me? A lot of those guys last year, they already knew about Mitch. The new guys we brought in didn’t and they developed a chemistry offensively.”

The Bears will be forced to compete with the always-dangerous Green Bay Packers and decently competitive Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North Division this autumn.
