Chicago Bears: How the defense is hurting this franchise
By Nathan Burns
The Chicago Bears need to take a different approach
Since 2006, the Chicago Bears have drafted four quarterbacks. Those four quarterbacks include Dan LeFevour (2010 – 6th round), Nathan Enderle (2011 – 5th round), David Fales (2014 – 6th round), and Mitch Trubisky (2017 – 1st round).
LeFevour and Enderle didn’t play a single snap for the Bears. Fales started one game but was never more than a backup. If things keep going the way they are, Trubisky will not be repping blue and orange next year. The Bears did trade for former quarterback Jay Cutler, but that’s a story for a different day. The only real-time they tried to draft a franchise quarterback was with Trubisky, and he has been a complete bust.
Ryan Pace took a chance and it failed miserably. It’s nice that they finally took a quarterback before the 5th round, but it’s going to be one of the big reasons for Ryan Pace’s departure. He not only traded up to draft Trubisky, but he also passed on Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson.
After this season is over, I expect both Ryan Pace and Matt Nagy to be fired. Whoever is the next general manager for the Bears, better have an eye out for a quarterback. This team is going nowhere if they don’t start prioritizing the position.
