A shaky performance in a season-opening loss at Green Bay on Sunday night wasn't the way Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky wanted to start his second season.He vowed not to let it define him Chicago Bears Womens Hoodie , though he understands the rush to judge."That's how it is on the outside, but for me I can't let any game, any play define who I am as a player or as a person," he said."I'm continuing to grow and get better. Each opportunity is just another day to get better and continue to grow, but that's how people are looking at it. We want immediate results, everybody 鈥?the media, the fans, myself. But unfortunately that's not always part of it."The Bears are banking on more from Trubisky after loading up in the offseason around the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 draft.They hired an offensive-minded coach in Matt Nagy to replace the fired John Fox. They also brought in some new playmaking targets such as former Jacksonville Pro Bowl receiver Allen Robinson in an effort to get the most out of their prized quarterback.But if the Bears are going to rise in the NFC North after four straight last-place finishes, they need their quarterback to deliver.Against Green Bay, he missed receivers. He was quick to scramble rather than stay in the pocket. He couldn't move the Bears past midfield in the closing minutes when all they needed was a field goal after Green Bay went ahead.More than anything, he showed he remains a work in progress. With 13 NFL starts to go with the 13 he had in college at North Carolina, maybe that's understandable.But so are the high expectations surrounding him. After all, general manager Ryan Pace made a big trade with San Francisco so he could move up to draft him.As a rookie last season, Trubisky threw as many interceptions as touchdowns (seven) in the 12 games he started. Against Green Bay, he did not get picked off or throw for any TDs. He was 23 of 35 for 171 yards with a 77.2 passer rating."Last year it was more, 'Oh he's a rookie, growing pains,'" Trubisky said. "And then now, it's a little different because it's like 'Oh, second year, why isn't the offense exploding?' And I ask myself some of those same questions, 'Why aren't I playing as well as I'd like to?' But if I'm too hard on myself then I just get discouraged."There were several plays that stood out against the Packers. Two came on back-to-back snaps at the end of the first quarter with the ball on the Green Bay 3 and the Bears looking to build on a 7-0 lead.Trubisky overthrew Robinson in the right corner on second down.On the next play Womens Customized Chicago Bears Jerseys , Trey Burton for a moment appeared to be open in the end zone with his arms raised on a play designed for Tarik Cohen in the flat that the Packers cut off.Trubisky connected with Taylor Gabriel for a 5-yard loss, forcing Chicago to settle for a field goal. But did Trubisky miss a touchdown?A defensive back was closing in on Burton. And Nagy said he did not think Burton was open."It's easy to say 'yeah he was wide open,'" he said. "But that was good defense by them."Trubisky wishes he attempted to hit Burton. But he'll also take the three points there."You've got to know as a quarterback if that opens up, take your chances and get it to the guy wide open," Trubisky said. "But it's a little less wide open when you're playing it full motion on film. When you've got the still picture, which I'm sure a lot of people saw, it looks like I don't know what I'm doing. Trust me, I'm hard on myself. You want touchdowns, not field goals."The Bears couldn't get in field-goal range when they needed one near the end of the game after Green Bay scored the go-ahead touchdown. They took over at their 18 with 2:13 remaining and didn't get past midfield.Trubisky seemed a bit rattled by the rush and was quick to scramble and abandon the play."I was thinking: Try to make a big play, like win the game right here," Trubisky said. "And it should have been for me personally ... just like stack completions, get one more completion, one more first down." Guess what, I write approximately .6 articles per season now, so I’m going to put thoughts in here until I get tired of putting thoughts in here. This means there will be more than ten. Deal with it.1) Imagine making a magic marker-on-posterboard sign that says “Passing Peyton is a Brees” and thinking you’re clever.Last week’s ten thoughts image was Drew Brees, and this week’s is Drew Brees. This has inadvertantly become a Drew Brees fan site. Drew Brees passed Brett Favre last night for 2nd all time in passing yards. This is little surprise, given that the Saints chuck the ball all across the planet. He’ll likely pass Peyton in the near future, and good on him, I suppose.EDIT: While I was writing this, he just went ahead and did the whole damn thing to get to #1. He’s going to make that record untouchable.Drew Brees is the singular reason that the Saints are always picked as a playoff contender, even though their defense gives up approximately one million (30.6) points per game. That team is going to be garbage when he’s gone. 2) The Cleveland Browns are the new hotness, and I am here for it. They play in a division that doesn’t seem to be very good www.bearsfootballauthentics.com , and if Baker Mayfield continues to progress (and he’ll definitely have some stumbles) they can use that and a top 12 defense to surprise Cincy, Pitt, and Baltimore. They still need a head coach, though, so my expectation is that Jackson will be gone after the season.3) Mason Crosby missed a bunch of kicks. As a Bears fan, it was pretty hilarious. I don’t really have much deeper thought here, it’s just nice to see it happen to Green Bay sometimes.4) Pittsburgh’s James Conner is really making the Steelers look smart in the Le’Veon Bell saga. Conner racked up 110 yards rushing, and another 75 yards receiving, along with two touchdowns this weekend, and is 7th in the league for rushing yards this season. A third round pick last year, he’s averaging four yards per carry and catching the ball out of the backfield.He seems to be showing us why the NFL is so hesitant to dump a bunch of resources into the running back position, which leads us to...5) Saquon Barkley, the 2nd overall pick by the Giants this year, is trying to prove the opposite. He joined rarefied air on Sunday, becoming just the third player in NFL history to earn at least 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first five games. (The others are Kareem Hunt and Adrian Peterson, if you’re wondering.)Barkley is on a team that looks to be pretty bad, though. In fact, he’s third on the team in receiving yards for this season. As we Bears fans know, when your running back is a leading receiver, your offensive game plan probably sucks. Barkley is 16th in receptions in the whole league. The whole league! And that is with a 79.5% catch rate6) Speaking of the Giants, how about that Odell Beckham Jr. huh? Seems like he’s in a good place right now.For those who somehow missed it, Beckham effectively said the Giants suck (true) Chicago Bears T-Shirt , that being there has stagnated his career (basically true), the offensive game-planning sucks (true), and that we all know Eli’s not going to run around, and he’s kind of tired of having to catch slant passes and then try and take them to the house (understandable).The problem with this is all that it’s WEEK 5. He just got $65 milly in guaranteed money, and a contract extension just before the season started. He’s feeling good and comfortable, and the worst (best) thing that would happen to him is to get traded to a contender or released and able to re-sign for a bunch of money.The Giants played better this week, though they lost to the Panthers, and Beckham had to throw a gosh-danged touchdown during the game just to have it be competitive. So he’s got a point, but the locker room could get out of control quickly.7) I know you don’t care about my fantasy team, but I’d like to use this public forum to personally apologize to Corey Grant. I picked him up in both of my leagues, as I have Fournette in both and I thought it was a really good idea. I believe my supreme influence on the universe caused him to suffer a lisfranc injury to his left foot and end his season. 8) Those Rams though. 5-0. Big comeback against a divisional rival. So hot right now.9) On that topic, PLAY TO WIN THE GAME. The Rams did so, and they won. The Cowboys did not, and they lost. Our friends at Turf Show Times said it best, I think, in giving the coaching staff an A:The Cowboys had 4th and 1, from the Texans 42, in overtime. They chose to punt, and Houston promptly went to field goal range to win the game.Here’s what our good friends at Blogging the Boys had to say about it:What say you, Bears fans? Nagy seems to have that go-for-it in him. John Fox most certainly did not. Do you want to see the coach play it safe or go for the gold?10) The Eagles are struggling right now. The margin of victory in each of their five games has been six points or less. They have notable injuries, but they also have the definite whiff of a team in a Super Bowl hangover. The NFC East is still very winnable, so don’t be surprised to see them in the playoffs Chicago Bears Hats , but they may not have the legs to go deep again.11) The NFC North shook out almost how the Bears most wanted yesterday, with the Packers falling to the Lions.
