Mid-Preseason Grades: Quarterback

CHICAGO, IL - AUGUST 10: Mike Glennon
CHICAGO, IL - AUGUST 10: Mike Glennon /

How would every player grade out after training camp and two games in the preseason?

Mike Glennon, F

Even if you came in with low expectations of Glennon, he failed to meet them. So far he is 15-26 for 109 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. This does not even count his worst throw, a pass into triple coverage that was a dropped interception. He has looked shaky in the pocket and has not made strong decisions or throws. It looks like this experiment may not be a good one early on.

Mark Sanchez, C

Sanchez is what you expect him to be. He has hardly played in the preseason but is 3-6 for 27 yards. He is the veteran quarterback who has more value off of the field than on it, and in an emergency, he is not the one the team is turning to.

Mitchell Trubisky, A

As we go down the depth chart the quarterback play gets even better. Trubisky has the most talent on the team and the most upside. He has gone 24-33 for 226 yards with two touchdowns and nary an interception. He has worked well outside of the pocket but needs more playing time in confined space to become a better pocket passer. Unfortunately, the Bears are being stubborn in giving him that chance.

Next: Bears double down on outdated mentality

Connor Shaw, I

Shaw is an incomplete, but on the verge of being an F. He isn’t getting reps and only has taken a knee in the preseason thus far. He will be cut before the season.
