The Mitchell Trubisky hatred is real amongst Chicago Bears fans and many in the national media. How bad is he though? We will compare him to other quarterbacks around the league.

The Chicago Bears are in one heck of a quarterback situation. This breakdown has nothing to do with a comparison of Mitchell Trubisky and Nick Foles — well at least not yet. No, instead this is more in response to the many fans on social media who claim Trubisky is one of, if not the worst quarterback in the NFL. In fact, specific names were mentioned and debated.

When it comes to Trubisky, trying to defend him is not easy. Especially after the season he had in 2019. Many are probably questioning why we are even looking at comparisons to other quarterbacks when Trubisky could be out of a job after this season. The thing is, it will either prove or disprove that Trubisky deserves to start in the NFL whether that is with the Chicago Bears in the future or not.

First up in the quarterback battle is Trubisky versus Sam Darnold. Honestly, I thought Darnold would be a better NFL quarterback. He was one of my favorite college quarterbacks when he was playing for USC in 2016 and 2017. He was drafted third overall by the New York Jets in 2018  whereas Trubisky went second overall in 2017. The real question though, was which of these two is better? Let us take a look at how the two compare over the last two seasons.
