Club Dub turns it up a notch after Bears' Thanksgiving win

Bryan Perez

Bears fans were prepping for an extra dose of Tums this Thanksgiving shortly after Detroit Lions rookie quarterback David Blough connected with wide receiver Kenny Golladay on a 75-yard touchdown just four minutes into the former Purdue Boilermaker's first NFL start.  And while Blough finished Thursday's game against the Bears with a solid overall performance, Mitch Trubisky came out victorious in what was arguably his best game in a year.

Trubisky finished with 338 yards, three touchdown passes and a 118.1 rating, and provided a glimpse into what general manager Ryan Pace fell in love with on tape prior to the 2017 NFL draft. With the exception of a few throws, Trubisky's fastball was accurate, his poise in the pocket was fantastic and his ability to move through his progressions was the best it's been in a very, very long time. It was also the first game - in a very long time - that the Bears won because of Trubisky, not in spite of him. If it wasn't for No. 10, the Bears would've suffered loss No. 7.

Naturally, when a beloved player like Trubisky has a breakout performance like he had on Thanksgiving, the post-game locker room is filled with a little more juice. Chicago's locker room, which famously turns into Club Dub after each win, isn't normally short on that juice regardless of who the stars of a win are. But there was a little more swag up in the club at Ford Field, and you have to believe it's because this win is the first one all year that felt like a sustainable recipe for longterm success.
