Chicago Bears coach Matt Nagy understands the temptation to compare, given the way his present and past quarterbacks are performing. Mitchell Trubisky and Patrick Mahomes were top 10 selections in the same class and the first two QBs drafted in 2017. ''Well, what's fair to compare is you have one, in Patrick, who has had a full year in this offense to understand it,'' Nagy said.
