Please look at the performance of Dalton, Foles and Fields with Nagy as coach. Trubisky is the only quarterback with a winning record under Nagy. Those three quarterbacks averaged a little more than one offensive touchdown a game. They lost every game where the other team scored 20 points or more (except one). I think Trubisky has the best QB rating of any Bear quarterback ever. So think again.
Liv, thanks so much for your comment! Much appreciation to you!
Great points regarding Nagy–I’m intrigued to look into that deeper. While I can see how a coach can stifle a quarterback’s growth/performance, you can’t completely discount the agency of the player. Trusbisky may hold the record for the best passer rating of any Bears’ QB, but from my perspective, that’s not saying much considering the history of the team’s signal callers. I am hopeful Trubisky blossoms in the Steelers organization and becomes the player he was drafted to become. No question about it, I was a bit pessimistic on this signing, and I need to give this guy a chance. Thanks again, Liv!
