What happens if Trubisky wins and does well?

For starters, this is the best-case scenario. No matter who you are a fan of, this would be the best for the Bears. Many people don’t like Trubisky, but if the young quarterback takes the reins and plays well, this solves the Bears’ problems for the future. The Bears get their quarterback of the future.

Additionally, if this is the case, we likely won’t see much of Foles. The only time we’d see Foles is if Trubisky gets hurt and Foles comes in. The Bears would ride Trubisky for the whole season.

For the team’s purposes, if Trubisky plays well, the Bears make the playoffs. If he plays well, the offense plays better which was the only issue for the 8-8 Bears last season. Even if the offense is average, this team makes the playoffs and could make a run.

This would make the Foles trade look stupid from an outside point of view, but the addition of Foles would then have pushed Trubisky to become what we as fans have always wanted him to be. It would have been completely worth it.
