NFC North Notes: Bears, Lions, Packers, Vikings

     

Bears

Bears QB Mitch Trubisky admitted that he hasn’t played up to his potential since entering the NFL. 

“Any time you feel like you’re not playing up to your potential, I think that drives you,” Trubisky said, via the Chicago Sun-Times. “I’ve got a lot of personal drive and fire within me [and] I know I haven’t played to my potential yet. That’s frustrating, but it’s also something that motivates me a lot.”

“You see really good games, and then you see some really bad games,” Trubisky said of his season. “The consistency just hasn’t been there. I think I could be a lot more of a consistent quarterback in the future.

Lions

Lions WR Kenny Golladay says he’s “grateful” to be in Detroit and expects to discuss an extension with the team after the season. 

“We haven’t talked about it,” Golladay said, via DetroitLions.com. “I’m sure we will the next few months or so. Everything will work itself out. I’m very grateful to be here. [Detroit] definitely took a shot on me and that would be a good way to repay them.
