The Chicago Bears put together an entertaining win yesterday against the Detroit Lions.
Just when some people were calling for Nick Foles to takeover, Mitch Trubisky put together some drives which really turned heads.
Trubisky isn't unaware of the criticism he receives off the field which made yesterday's win just a bit more sweeter.
"It's crazy," Trubisky said Sunday. "I do catch a lot of crap. But like Coach says, you've got to enjoy the wins in the NFL, and I'm going to. This was a special day. I'm thankful for what I have in life, especially now, with COVID-19 and social injustice everywhere. I'm really grateful just to be playing football right now.
"The game's made me a better man, a better person. It's made me tougher. It's why I never gave up today."
When things weren't going good on Sunday, Trubisky just looked around at his teammates and knew what he had to do.
“How do you avoid falling into thinking, Here we go again?” I wondered Sunday night. Trubisky, back in Chicago, was driving home now.
“You can’t go back to that dark place,” Trubisky said. “You can’t go back to, My stats aren’t any good. It’s happening again. At times like that, I find myself focusing on my teammates, the guys you grind with. Our relationships run deep. We lean on each other. And I think you’ve just got to believe in yourself, believe you can do it, there’s still time.”
Some very strong comments from the Bears' QB.
