The Chicago Bears quarterbacks are big talk.

Speaking of Nick Foles, why is he considered injury prone, and other quarterbacks are not? I understand what Aaron Rodgers can bring to the table, but in 2013 he played nine games, and in 2017 he played in seven. Nick Foles has had an up and down career.

After his rookie year, Foles lost a quarterback competition to Michael Vick but took over after Vick was injured. Foles thrived in 2013. Foles played more down to hearth that next season but had still won six games to only two losses before going down with a broken collarbone.

Mind you; the great Rodgers has gone down twice with similar injuries. Getting back on topic, when asked about Trubisky, Nagy stressed how he doesn’t run out of the pocket as much and keeps his eyes down the middle of the field. This reiterates my point that Nagy wants to have a pocket styled quarterback. Last year, Trubisky ran 20 fewer times than in 2018. A lot of media members shared that it was most likely due to his injury.

I feel it was more because that is what Nagy wants from his quarterback. To only use his feet when he needs to instead of because of being afraid to make a throw downfield. Nagy didn’t get into much on how Foles plays or reads when he is in this competition. Nagy talked more about how Foles is learning what it is like to run the Bears version of the offense and communicate with the players and in the huddle.
