Mitch Trubisky will start under center for the Bears in 2020.
“Both these guys were really battling their tail off every single day and that’s not easy,” Nagy told reporters. “It’s a lot easier when you know you have the job and you just play a little different ’cause it’s always in the back of your mind. But to Mitch’s credit and Nick’s credit, the way they handled it, I was really proud of ’em for it. In the end, Mitch won the job and I think that that’s very important for him, for us, for everybody to understand that he worked really hard to get to this point.”
NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported Friday that the team informed Trubisky he had won the starting job over Nick Foles, whom Chicago traded for in March.
“You could feel the command,” Nagy said. “I think the difference in the command that I felt and that our coaches felt was it’s one where it’s just very natural. It wasn’t made up, it wasn’t being told from somebody how to act, it was just very organic. And you can tell that with guys when they are natural with that and I thought he improved there. So, for him, when he gets this opportunity like he has right now, you can just feel that he’s ready to get out there and just really play hard for his teammates.”
