Listen and discuss.

Simms pretty well nails it to me.

He is logical about it. The key is for Tru to keep progressing, because we are going to have to pay him a monster salary (nature of the beast with franchise QBs) or gamble and replace him (barring career ending injury, no way this happens IMO). When he gets that big deal the Bears are going to have to find a way to keep their best other players and stockpile talent as efficiently as possible. Tru will be forced to win games much more than he will the next few years, as the chances of keeping a top defense are unlikely while paying him so much. Hell his entire college career and first two of his pro career he has attempted roughly the same amount of passes as Watson and Mahomes did just in college - of course he was behind the ball compared to them. But this pick is about having them for 15 years, so I think he overtakes Watson soon and while he won't get more personal accolades than Mahomes, I think he is far more successful in the postseason when all is said and done.

So this year, not and MVP candidate, but I won't be bold enough to say he won't be in a few more years.

I like what they were saying. Can you win a championship with Biscuits? Absolutely. All of the scrutiny that he has drawn is not his fault, it belongs on Ryan Pace. If Mahomes was taken ONE PICK before Trubisky, none of this criticism ever happens, and Mitch would be hailed as a future franchise QB.

As I've said forever, the thing about Biscuit is that his lack of college experience is his biggest problem. And while I think he'll be better in Nagy v2.0, he'll still leave us wanting at times and people will be questioning him. "He's no Brees, Brady, Mahomes, etc." But he was a long term project when he was drafted and that doesn't change just because we want it to, it worked that way for another player or somebody set their own set of expectations for him.

Will he be better in 2019? Yes. Can we win it all with him? Possibly, with a good defense. Will we win because of him? Probably not yet or only in unusual circumstances. But a guy with his work ethic and his moxie--like we saw in the playoff game at the end--he's going to get everything possible out of his talent. We just may not see him peak for another year or two.

I've said it before and I’ll say it again — this is what “developing a young quarterback” looks like. We don’t recognize it because we haven’t seen it in a while. The NFL talking heads don’t recognize it b/c they are stuck on the “same old Bears” BS narrative.

Trubisky is going to be a star in this league — sooner than later — but kudos to the Bears brain trust for bringing him along in a deliberate and measured way.

Can he win the games for this team? Come on....

He did against the eagles in the playoffs, the kicker on the other hand...

The kid has only improved steadily since he got under the center, he has all the tools to be a great QB. Just sit back and enjoy.

I don't particularly care if he's an MVP candidate. I care if the team as a whole is good and continues to improve to the point where they are competing deep into the playoffs consistently. Trubisky's play directly correlates, but he doesn't have to play at an MVP level for that to happen.

I'll settle for a plain old Superbowl MVP for Biscuit.
