Will the quarterback competition bring the best out of Trubisky?

The Bears quarterback situation isn’t an easy one to deal with; Ryan Pace gave away everything for a quarterback that he thought to be “the guy.” But as his career progresses, it’s becoming more and more obvious that Mitch Trubisky can’t shoulder the load that’s been given to him as the quarterback of this offense.

To try and aid this, Ryan Pace traded for Nick Foles, the former Super Bowl MVP, in the offseason. Many fans were hoping that the front office would make a push for a higher quality quarterback in Tom Brady or Cam Newton. This wasn’t the case, as the young GM opted to sign Nick Foles instead, indicating that he was looking to get the most out of Trubisky rather than replace him entirely.

We have a small sample size, but to assume that this will make Trubisky’s career do a complete 180 is a leap. Granted, when Mike Glennon was brought in during Mitch’s rookie year, Mitch won over the locker room immediately and eventually took the starting job. But, then again, it’s Mike Glennon we’re talking about.

Next. These Bears will step up behind Khalil Mack. dark

As a fan, I’m extremely skeptical as to whether or not this competition will work. Maybe he Trubisky shines in these situations, but to essentially put the fate of this team in his hands is risky. Regardless, the situation is better than last year as Nick Foles is a first-ballot Backup Quarterback Hall-of-Famer.
