Mitch Trubisky: “Trying to get some of these TVs in the building turned off because you’ve got too many people talking on TV about us and what they think about us and what we should do, what we are, and what we’re not... But they don’t really know who we are, or what we’re capable of as people, or what we’re going through or what we’re thinking. It’s just the outside viewers looking in. So tunnel vision, ear muffs, and just come to work every day and try to get better and get back to what we know we’re capable of doing.”
Downtrodden Chicago Bears starting quarterback Mitch Trubisky is reportedly trying to censor negative stories from being shown at the Bears practice facility, Halas Hall, as Trubisky allegedly tried to get all televisions airing football shows to be turned off this week.
Bears beat reporter Patrick Finley reported the bizarre story Wednesday as Trubisky has rapidly become one of the NFL’s worst players in his third year.
After being a popular pick to win the NFL’s MVP this season, Trubisky has monumentally regressed in 2019, ranking third to last in the league in QBR ahead of only Josh Allen and Marcus Mariota, and ranking last in the league in yards per attempt. Trubisky has the lowest touchdown percentage in the league as well, and in five of his seven games this season has finished a game with zero touchdowns through the air.
Trubisky says he wants the TV’s turned off because ‘You’ve got too many people talking on TV about us’, but really the only thing they’re talking about on TV is him.
Not only have Trubisky's personal struggles been magnified but also his place in history as his no. 2 overall selection in the 2017 NFL Draft ahead of Houston’s Deshaun Watson and Kansas City's Patrick Mahomes is already encapsulated Trubisky's career as arguably the worst draft pick in league history.
The Bears are currently 3-5 and two games back in the loss column to the 6-3 Minnesota Vikings for the NFC's second Wild Card.
