Nagy openly admitted that Trubisky’s psyche isn’t where the Bears need it to be, with the quarterback’s mental tension contributing to happy feet and poor decisions.
"His confidence isn’t at an all-time high," Nagy said. "We’re struggling right now. … But how do you get that back? You get it back by practicing hard, by actually getting tighter. That’s the message we’ve had is ‘get tighter.’ Believe in one another. Keep trusting."
Trubisky continues to take coaching and constructive criticism behind the scenes and has appreciated the way Nagy has backed him through the struggles of the first two months.
"Nagy’s always got my back no matter what," Trubisky said. "It’s just me and him with this offense, and we’ve got each other’s back. And we have to continue to remind each other of that because people are going to continue to try and break us apart, saying we’re not doing this and we’re not doing that.
"The fact of the matter is this is our team, our family. He’s the head coach. We can do it however we want, but the fact that we have each other’s backs and we’re going to do it our way, it gives me a lot of confidence. And it’s one of the reasons that makes coming to work every day still fun and you believe you’re going to push through this."
