It’s Time For Bears To Switch (Back) To Mitch Trubisky

Total103 Here’s a little history lesson about Chicago: The most popular person in town is always whoever happens to be the backup quarterback for the Bears.  Sure, other cities might feel the same way, but no town has lived it like Chicago, where the starting quarterback has been consistently bad for decades. Meanwhile, the backup More

  1. The Bears haven’t had an offensive line in 4 years. If you can’t inflict your will on the line of scrimmage I don’t care who the QB is. If you can’t push them around then your RB’s won’t do diddly. It’s not Trubisky’s fault. It’s not Montgomery’s fault. It’s the OL. It’s on Nagy as well.

  2. Totally disagree! Foles is the right leadership for the Bears offense. The Rams are no slouch on defense. Sadly the entire Bears team was outplayed. Mitch would have faired much worse than Foles.
    Coach Nagy is not a good game caller and never will be.

  3. Neither guy is an elite (or even close to it) NFL QB. I would stick with Foles. Yes he burned his teammates and coach, but as Christian Laettner once wisely said “anger can be a great way to motivate people”. The Bears and Nagy do need to step up. Here’s what you have at the QB position:

    Foles – has the personality of a stoner, and a big dong apparently. He’s the cool guy with the VW bus that gets you good weed and has a hot girlfriend, but he will always be a streaky passer. One half of the football game he’s Tom Brady, the next half he can’t hit a wide open receiver. That’s why he won the SB in Philly, he stayed hot for a month and by the time teams figured him out it was too late.

    Trubisquick – As an NC State fan, we could of told you he’s not a first round pick. He’s a solid guy, good athlete, but his UNC team faded badly their last few games losing to our mediocre team and a bad Duke team. Trubisquick only played that one season. It was/is beyond the realm of comprehension that Pace or any other professional GM would consider him a first round pick.

    Keep playing Foles, go 10-6, lose the wildcard game, and fire Pace/Nagy. Let the new regime draft their QB. As the guy said above the worst thing you could do is sign Trubisquick long term.
