After enormous “Surrounding Talent” and “Coaching Scheme” upgrades, Mitch Trubisky’s path to a Jared Goff-esque breakout is very real.
Allen Robinson, Taylor Gabriel, and Trey Burton, oh my! Talk about a Surrounding Talent upgrade — Trubisky’s weapons cabinet, once headlined by (puke) Kendall Wright, now features a bevy of athletic field stretchers. This is ideal, as the creative, aggressive, and vertically-minded Matt Nagy replaces the infuriatingly conservative John Fox, also landing Trubisky a healthy “Coaching Scheme” score boost. A vertical cast + a vertical coach = perfection for the strong-armed Trubisky, who was graded third by PFF on 20+ yard passes. Jared Goff followed very similar upgrades in Sean McVay and his bolstered weaponry to a QB1 breakout, and Trubisky’s own arm is all that stands between him and a similar explosion.
