The Chicago Bears helmet history started to get really interesting in the 1940s and continues to hold one of the most iconic looks in the NFL today. From the classic plain helmets of the 1940s to the wishbone ‘C’ of today, the traditional Bears’ look continues to stand the test of time.
Whether it was Dick Butkus or Brian Urlacher or Roquan Smith, Gale Sayers or Walter Payton, or even Jim McMahon or Mitchell Trubisky, the traditional helmet links both old and new versions of the Chicago Bears.
The Mitchell Trubisky jersey is certainly a hot buy all across the NFL landscape as he did something no Bears quarterback had done since 2010; lead the Bears to an NFC North Championship, but better yet, to a home playoff game. While the game didn’t turn out the way the Bears intended it to, Trubisky, along with a young cast of stars on both sides of the ball, provided fans hope for a bright future.
Yet, the future rests on the quarterback’s shoulders, as it does with so many other teams, and the Bears are no different. For this reason, I’ve decided to give Trubisky the keys to being the face of the Chicago Bears franchise in favor of others like Jordan Howard or Roquan Smith.
If this franchise is going to ascend to and remain at a level their divisional rival, the Green Bay Packers were at with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers, Trubisky is going to be the deciding factor.
Who is Mitchell Trubisky?
Trubisky played his high school ball at Mentor High School, not far away from Cleveland on the shores of Lake Erie in Ohio. During his career, he amassed over 9,000 passing yards with 92 touchdown passes. He also rushed for over 1,500 yards and scored 33 rushing touchdowns.
Trubisky established himself as a dual-threat, pass-first quarterback early, and has remained so even to this day. As a result, he earned The Ohio Mr. Football Award in 2012, recognizing him as the best high school football player in the State of Ohio. Not long after, Trubisky committed to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
