How does the Chicago Bears quarterback position look with its depth?
We all know that Mitch Trubisky is the starting quarterback of the Chicago Bears. However, he still found a way to be one of the winners of the weekend thanks to all the skill players that were added for him to play with.
Still, last year one of the keys of the offseason was the quarterback room. Last year, Trubisky went from the young pup behind Mike Glennon and Mark Sanchez to the leader, ahead of Chase Daniel and Tyler Bray.
It was a big step and it showed in his development on and off of the field that he was taking strides from being a player learning to a player acting.
With that in mind, what does the quarterback room look like now?
Trubisky is the leader. He is the most experienced player in the room and is the alpha of the team. Seeing him take that vocal leader role in the quarterback room early into his second NFL season has to add excitement to his potential year three season.
Daniel will hardly be pushed for his backup job. However, he also will hardly push Trubisky for that starting job. Daniel has a defined role in the NFL and has made good money doing it. Last season, he went 1-1 as a starter and while he was not great, he kept his team in the game and gave them a chance to win. If Trubisky goes down longterm, the Bears are done. However, in short spurts, Daniel can keep the season alive.
Bray has a better chance to knock off Daniel than any other battle in this room. However, Bray also spent most of his season on the couch as the Bears cut him only to bring him back when Trubisky went down. Expect these to be the three quarterbacks this offseason, but also do not expect any movement or surprises in the competition of this group.
