Mitchell Trubisky – Bears
I should point out these quarterbacks are not in any particular order. All of them have something to prove this season. Some might have more to prove than others. Trubisky could find himself going from a Pro Bowl appearance in 2018 to no longer starting in 2020. This could also mean he is not likely starting in 2021, but will instead be a backup.
Personally, I am pulling for Trubisky to finally figure things out because he is more athletic than Nick Foles and has more potential to be a better quarterback. Yes, he has potential to be better than Foles — the one-time Super Bowl MVP and champion. Foles himself has something to prove this season. Like Trubisky, Foles has had an inconsistent career. The difference between the two seems to be between the ears.
What I want to see from Trubisky is confidence. He needs to show that to the coaches over the next couple of weeks of training camp in order to lock in the starting role come Week 1. He needs to continue to show that all season if he does not want to lose the job to Foles.
Should Trubisky start all year and show consistency with this offense, he will likely find himself either signing an extension in 2021 or being franchise tagged. Either way, he would set himself up as the franchise quarterback of the Chicago Bears future.
