Mahome's rating his last year in college was 157.0.   Trubisky's was 157.9.

Mahome's came from school known for churning out system QBs (Texas Tech) while Trubisky played in a pro offense at NC.   There was some question as to whether Mahomes was another system QB.   And I don't know many of the draft experts that Mahomes ahead of Trubisky. 

Plus Trubisky doesn't play with all-pro's Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce.

And the guy that the Bears were supposed to take at #3 in the 2017 (Solomon Thomas) isn't even starting for the 49ers.

Trubisky did not have a good game and he's not Pat Mahomes NFL MVP,  but I'm not going to start whining about what we shoulda coulda done in the draft.  Trubisky has shown that he's better than what he did last night.

Recall the Bears were ranked in the bottom third of the NFL in offense last year.  What changed this year?  Did they add any game breaking receivers?  They added David Montgomery and barely utilized him.  They also lost the services of a very good TE in Burton which is a good portion of the offense.

Bears need to cleanup their blocking assignments especially with Daniels and Whitehair's position swap, get Montgomery more involved (and Cohen), get Burton healthy, get Miller and Wims involved and Nagy needs to balance his play calling better.

Recall last year we were in a similar spot after the opener and the Bears rebounded.  Next week is game 2 - come off the ledge.
