Playoff prediction or not, Mitch Trubisky saying all the right things

Playoff prediction or not, Mitch Trubisky saying all the right things

It was something a rookie would say. Asked Friday about the Bears chances in 2017, Mitch Trubisky told a group of high school football players his team was going to make the playoffs this year.

Receiver Kevin White appreciated the sentiment but knew the quarterbacks words could be misconstrued.

Hes got to be clear with some things, White said. People can take it the wrong way and run with it and make it seem like hes being cocky or something.

Protecting the rookie, White pulled Trubisky aside and suggested he clarify he wasnt making any promises.

I said, Yeah, I think were gonna make the playoffs, Trubisky said a few minutes later as players filed onto the field at Wheaton-Warrenville South High School for the USA Football 7v7 Great Lakes Regional Championship. Obviously we know we have a lot of work to do. I dont want anyone to construe it in a way that its a guarantee or anything.

But I believe in myself. I believe in my teammates. I know weve still got work to do. Thats what it is " I think. As a competitor, you should always go there and think were gonna win.

And so, after a minor bump, Trubisky continues his offseason of saying exactly the right things. From humble tales about his beat-up car to public acceptance of an apprenticeship under starting quarterback Mike Glennon, Trubisky can only hope to thread the needle so well on game day.

Take the issue of his still-unsigned contract. While his representatives and the Bears continue to haggle over smaller details " rookie salaries are fairly standardized " Trubisky refuses to use his only piece of leverage: a holdout when the Bears report to training camp July 26.
