4. Chicago market too big for Trubisky

Remember the time when Trubisky wanted all the TVs at Halas Hall turned off? He requested such because the television screens where the Bears practiced showed coverage of outlets criticizing Trubisky and the Bears in 2019.

Chicago is the third-largest media market in the nation. Beyond on-field production, a successful quarterback in Chicago needs to have some awareness. Trubisky doesn’t possess the swagger needed to win over the fanbase, something most have in spades.

Jim McMahon and even Jay Cutler had personality, with the latter souring many because of his disposition. Still, the point of having some personality for fans to connect with is key. Trubisky has never exuded any confidence, and so it’s hard to have confidence in him.

Perhaps Trubisky would be better-suited playing for a small-market team, one where he could possibly develop into a serviceable game manager.
