Now that it’s confirmed that Sanchez out for the remainder of the Bears’ offseason program, Shaw and Mitch Trubisky are receiving more reps.
The Chicago Bears QB Strategy:
Shaw will have a better opportunity to show coaches his skill set. And for the 2017 draft pick, Trubisky was handed the keys to the second-string offense this week.
Shaw weighed in saying:
“I had a little bit of a hike back. But well worth the drive.”
Meanwhile, Trubisky said:
“Instead of the threes, I’m with the twos. So it’s getting the reps, getting comfortable and whoever I’m with, whenever I’m in the huddle, it’s taking command and doing my job.”
Despite, Sanchez not being able to practice, Trubisky praised the example set by the former New York Jets, Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys quarterback.
Trubisky weighed in saying:
“He’s a smart guy, he’s seen a lot of offenses. So being around, having that playoff experience and knowing what it takes to get back there, he’s taught me a lot about how to carry yourself not just on the field but off the field as well. I like spending time with him.”
Shaw concluded with these thoughts:
“You’ve just got to refocus your mind. You’re got to get back into the routine of things and compete even if I were on a different squad. I’m very fortunate to be here, be a Chicago Bear. But you just go back to second nature when you start playing football.”
