Trubisky is terrible

After making it seem like he was taking steps in the right direction last year, Mitchell Trubisky has not looked good in his third season as the Bears’ starting quarterback.

In three games, Trubisky has thrown for 579 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. He only has 77 more passing yards than Kirk Cousins this year despite attempting 40 more passes than the Vikings’ quarterback.

Trubisky’s threat as a rusher has also disappeared this season. After averaging 30.1 yards on the ground in 2018, the Chicago quarterback is only averaging seven rushing yards per game this year.

For some reason, the Bears have felt that Trubisky passing more is a good idea this season. So far, he’s averaging about three additional pass attempts this year compared to 2018.

On Sunday, Trubisky will be going up against a Vikings defense that hasn’t had any trouble stopping him in the past. In his four previous meetings with Minnesota, the Chicago quarterback has completed just 59 percent of his throws, averaged 158.5 passing yards, tossed only two touchdowns, and thrown three interceptions.

The blockbuster trade the Vikings should seriously consider. light. Trending

There are a handful of Bears players the Vikings will have to worry about on Sunday. Trubisky is not one of them.
