According to multiple reports, Mitch Trubisky will start at quarterback for the Chicago Bears against the Minnesota Vikings.
Chicago Bears fans made their voices heard, and perhaps the organization decided to listen. Or perhaps they made the only logical choice that was left to make. According to multiple reports, Mike Glennon has been benched and rookie Mitch Trubisky will start at quarterback for the Chicago Bears. Monday, October 9th, the Bears square off against the Minnesota Vikings and kick off a new era of football in Chicago.
Glennon’s performance against the Green Bay Packers was downright dreadful and was the biggest reason (although not the only reason) the Bears’ dropped the Thursday Night game to their rival by a tally of 35-14. Through four games, Glennon has shown little pocket awareness, a lack of mobility, struggled with the accuracy of his passes and hasn’t shown the ability to get the ball down the field and stretch the defense.

Glennon had to be benched. The Bears’ organization was out of excuses. There was nothing they could say that warranted keeping Glennon as starting quarterback. There may have been some question of whether the team wanted to keep Trubisky on the bench and start Mark Sanchez, but a QB change was going to be made.
Being that Trubisky has been active as QB2 the first four games of the season, it seemed logical that the Bears felt he was ready enough to play. Had Trubisky definitely not been ready, Sanchez would have been QB2 in September and Trubisky would have been inactive.
Sure, this decision should have been made earlier, but there’s no point to keep screaming about the past. The right decision has been made. Trubisky is in at quarterback. A new era of football is here in Chicago. Fans should be excited. There’s no point to dwell on Glennon. It’s time to focus on the present, and more importantly, the future.
