Matt Nagy is playing hard to get when it comes to Mitchell Trubisky and the starting quarterback’s job for Sunday’s game against the Packers.
Because while Nagy won’t commit to Trubisky as his starter – even though Trubisky was the healthy quarterback taking all the snaps today – Nagy likes where things are going:
Matt Nagy on Bears QB Mitch Trubisky: "I’m very, very impressed with how he’s grown week to week. I mean that. … It wasn’t easy by any means those first couple weeks. … If he is going, what I would say is this — I have all the confidence in the world in him."

Matt Nagy on if Mitch Trubusky is the guy Sunday: "I have seen a change in him, and for the good."

Matt Nagy feels Mitchell Trubisky will come back stronger after being benched as the Bears' quarterback: "I do believe in my heart of hearts that he has grown from this situation. I do believe that he will be a better player because of it."

By the time Sunday rolls around, Trubisky will have had 62 days to hone his craft. It will have been more than two months since his benching in Atlanta. And while it’s unfair to expect Trubisky to turn it all around in his return to action, the opportunity to learn, grow, and improve without the pressure that comes with QB1 weighing on his shoulders. It might mean nothing. But it could mean something if Trubisky took advantage of the situation presented to him.
The next chapter in Trubisky’s book is ready to be written. He is the author. The pen is in his hand. He just needs the OK from upstairs to get cracking on the assignment.
