Rookie Mitch Trubisky Doesn't Take Any Crap In The Huddle & The Bears Dig It
Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky isn’t just earning the respect of his veteran teammates, he’s demanding it.
One of his experienced blockers, Josh Sitton, told a story about the No. 2 pick in the 2018 NFL draft not being afraid to put them in their place when it came to following the leader in the huddle (via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette):
And that dart you got in your neck is Mitchell Trubisky aka: "The Truth".
I don't care if you're on a consistently sub-par team like the Bears (or Jets for that matter - I can empathize), if you're a rookie and you're drawing that line in the sand with your offense like that, you're on the Audubon to leadership. I'd take somebody with a take-no-prisoners, Popeye Doyle attitude like that over someone with Sam Darnold talent, but has the passion level of smokin' Jay Cutler like that any day of the week.
