1. Quarterback competition

All 32 teams are affected by a virtual offseason. Not all 32 teams announced an open competition at quarterback this offseason. Every rep between these two matters, and seeing meaningful reps taken away has to hurt both quarterbacks more than some other quarterbacks who are in the same system with similar wide receivers.

For Nick Foles, it is nice to know that he has familiarity with Matt Nagy, Bill Lazor, and John DeFillippo. Every offensive coach and scheme that he has to work with comes with a familiarity that will survive without OTAs. However, this is valuable time he could have been learning timing with Allen Robinson, Anthony Miller, and others.

Mitch Trubisky has valuable experience with the top wide receivers on the roster. However, he has a new quarterback coach and a new offensive coordinator. They can go over new plans, but Trubisky not being able to meet, greet, and get in the room with these may hurt him as much the lack of experience with players hurts Foles.

dark. Next. Bears 53 man roster projection

All things are equal for all teams, but it is fair to make these questions about the Chicago Bears being affected by a virtual offseason.
