Trubisky: 'I was built for this offense'

Introduced to the new Bears offense this week with the start of the voluntary offseason program, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is already a huge fan of the scheme.

“The offense I want to run is the offense we’re installing right now,” Trubisky said Friday during an appearance on NFL Network’s Good Morning Football. “Just after a couple days of installing it and actually being able to talk to the coaches I really feel like I was built for this offense. It’s dynamic, it’s creative and it’s also balanced, and that’s what you want.”

The offense is a collaboration between first-year head coach Matt Nagy, who spent the past five seasons as quarterbacks coach and offensive coordinator with the Kansas City Chiefs, and new offensive coordinator Mark Helfrich, who served as Oregon’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach (2009-12) and head coach (2013-16).

“We’re going to get the ball out quick,” Trubisky said. “We’re going to deceive defenses. We’re going to spread the field and we’re going to get it all over to our playmakers. We’re going to be balanced. We’re going to play fast. We’re going to be dynamic and we’re going to stretch the field every which way. 

“I just feel this offense is going to utilize my talents more and the players we have around me and hopefully we can just get it rolling from there. I’m excited to keep diving in and keep working.”

Trubisky compared the moves the Bears made in free agency to “an early Christmas.” Players they’ve signed since the start of the new league year March 14 include receivers Allen Robinson II and Taylor Gabriel, tight end Trey Burton, quarterback Chase Daniel and kicker Cody Parkey. 

“We got some great weapons this offseason,” Trubisky said. “I’m very excited about the guys we added. It’s looking good. Everyone is excited to be back in the building. We’re going hard with workouts and installing this new offense. Exciting things are going on here in Chicago and we’re just happy to be back to work.”
