Chicago Bears: Is a Taysom Hill like role suitable for Mitch Trubisky?
By Jimmie Sykes
The Chicago Bears need to stick to their decision
The Bears should stick with getting better each week. Nick Foles is operating under a comeback win heading into week four. This Bears should stick with the rhythm of trying things they know will work. Foles came in with a favorable edge, with the Bears remaining unbeaten. They have a good chance at 4-0 with the Colts heading into Soldier Field on Sunday.
A Taysom Hill comparison is worth weighing on the scale. Hill has been the swiss army knife for the New Orleans Saints. He has the type of playmaking ability to be the X-Factor in the Saints’ potent offense.
The Bears’ depth on offense on papers adds up to a high-powered team like the New Orleans Saints. Their offense is less consistent with a nice margin compared to their NFC counterpart. If the Saints struggled to score as much, they will probably have less room to worry about experimenting on offense. However, depth at quarterback is different and the Bears cannot afford to have Trubisy getting hurt by playing in a different role. No one wants to see Tyler Bray.
Will Trubisky end up a swiss army knife? Not quite. It is more to Trubisky than trying to utilize him in a package. Chicago would do him a disservice as far as future opportunities at quarterback go. Cordarelle Patterson already serves as the do-it-all guy on offense.
Adding Trubisky to the mix of other formations is extra. Keep him in the rhythm of the play calls, keep him close to the coach so he can continue to learn. Maybe we will see him again under center. If not, the Trubisky saga is implemented in modern history.
