Mitchell Trubisky, meet John DeFilippo.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Bears have submitted an interview request for DeFilippo, the Eagles QB coach who's been largely credited with Carson Wentz’s development into an MVP-caliber QB in just Year 2 of his NFL career.
With Trubisky heading into Year 2 of his career, the parallels are similar and the possibilities are salacious.
It shouldn't be assumed that a Wentz-like jump is imminent if the Bears do indeed ink DeFilippo, but one has to wonder how Trubisky's game can improve if the two are paired. One area where strides can be taken immediately is in the red zone.
"I am going to study the red zone even more to figure out how I can improve," Trubisky said after the Bears' Week 17 loss to the Vikings. "You always find out from each game what you did well, and what you need to work on, so I am going to go back through all the games and continue to look at those things.
"We have to find ways to score in the red zone to have a better chance of winning."
Well, DeFilippo may be of assistance in that department.
The Eagles rank first in red zone touchdown scoring percentage at 65 percent. That's up from just 49 percent in Wentz's rookie season.
Don't believe the numbers? You're going to want to watch DeFilippo thoroughly analyze the Philly's red zone offense right here.
Sounds pretty convincing from here.
