Accuracy is the most important physical trait any quarterback can have, and some are gifted with it, but it can also be learned and achieved through practice and study.
None of our first-round failures ever acquired any of those assets, and that’s why they were such big disappointments.
The number of fans and respected analysts who were ridiculously quick in wanting to just write off Trubisky after his and the Bears' collapse in the final three quarters Sunday night in Green Bay stunned me.
It seemed three out of every four calls to our postgame show on the radio at 670 The Score after the Packers game were, “Trubinsky’s a bust, get rid of him!” or “That bum Trubinsky is killing us, they should play Chase Daniels!”
(By the way, not to digress, but where do Chicagoans find the "N" in Trubisky’s name or add the "S" to the end of Daniel, and can you please, please stop it?)
Back to something that really matters: I understand we live in a world of instant gratification, and everyone wants Trubisky to be Aaron Rodgers right now, but it just doesn’t work that way in the NFL. It never has, and it never will.
Those same Bears fans looking to dump Trubisky I’m sure were in the ridiculously large group polishing up the bronze busts of Deshaun Watson and Jimmy Garoppolo for Canton prior to last Sunday. Watson was every bit as mediocre as Trubisky, if not more so, in a loss to the Patriots Sunday, and Garoppolo, admittedly against a tougher opponent than the other two with the Vikings, threw three picks (one run back for a touchdown) that cost his 49ers team a chance to win.
