The Bears season ended with a 21-9 loss to the Saints, but Mitchell Trubisky doesn’t want that game to be his last with the team.
Trubisky wants to go on an unfinished business tour with this team one more time in 2021:
Mitchell Trubisky: 'Yea, I can definitely see myself back here next year. I feel like we have unfinished business. I could see that."

Look … I get it. Trubisky’s four years with the Bears have been … underwhelming, even as he was the quarterback for two playoff teams and earned himself a spot as a Pro Bowl alternate. With that and his draft history, it’s easy to understand why he feels like there’s unfinished business in Chicago, and I understand why he wants another chance with the organization that gave him his first shot.
Buuuuuuut … there are times when the things you can envision for yourself don’t exactly line up with the rest of reality. Obviously, I won’t rule out a return without further examination, but on the surface, it looks like the Bears and Trubisky are likely two passing ships in the night.
Things can always change, and there’s plenty of offseason ahead of us, so we can just let this marinate for a minute. But in the end, we (and Mitch) need to recognize that every timeline eventually comes to an end — even if one party wants to see it through for another year.
