Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky left open the possibly of returning to Chicago next season after the offense flopped in Sunday’s 21-9 playoff loss at the New Orleans Saints.
“Obviously, a lot of that is out of my control, but it feels like home and it feels like we have unfinished business. “Right now, I’m just bummed about this season being over and how the game went.
Overall, the Bears lost eight of their final 11 games and backed into the postseason by virtue of the Rams defeating the Arizona Cardinals in Week 17 — the Bears wrapped up the regular season with a 35-16 blowout loss to Green Bay.
“I feel like I got better this year. I feel like when I was put back in the starting lineup that the offense was better and I gave my team a chance to win, and we did win games, and that is why we were able to get back into the playoffs. It wasn’t just me, but it was the whole unit coming together and the whole team making plays and really getting through that adversity together. But I feel like I was a big part of that. “So there are some good things that we did toward the end of the season that helped put us in position to be able to play here tonight, but that’s now how we want to finish.
Pace, who has served as Chicago’s general manager for the past six seasons, has one year remaining on the three-year extension the team announced in 2018.
