Mitch Trubisky Has A Little Problem with Fumbled Exchanges

Analysis and Commentary

Rome wasn’t built in a day, and Mitch Trubisky’s issues under center weren’t going to be solved in two padded practices at the start of training camp.

It’s early, but it appears that Trubisky has a bit of a problem handling the center-quarterback exchange on snaps under center:

Life as a rookie in the NFL comes with its own set of challenges, and Trubisky’s include handling a snap from under center.

This wasn’t unexpected.

Trubisky is making the transition from college to the pros, and we’re seeing one reason he wasn’t starting the season atop the Bears’ quarterback depth chart. The North Carolina product has a lot on his plate right now, ranging from learning a new offense, getting familiar with complex coverage schemes and defensive fronts/ blitzes, to learning one of football’s most basic (but also, most important) responsibilities.

To be fair, Trubisky wasn’t expected to pick up everything four days into his first NFL training camp. He is very much still a work in progress, but that was to be expected considering he started just 13 games since graduating high school.

On the bright side, Trubisky can do this:

It can be easy to get carried away because of a couple of good-looking throws in July, but it’s clear there is a lot to be excited about when Trubisky is slinging the pigskin around the gridiron. But there is still a lot of work to do for the No. 2 overall pick.
