The Chicago Bears should know what they have to do with Mitch Trubisky

Mitchell Trubisky is a likable guy who is easy to root for. You can tell he cares, tries hard, and overall his teammates seem to like him. That, combined with just enough glimpses of athletic talent had the Chicago Bears in a tough spot heading into their playoff game.

Trubisky, the second overall pick four years ago, did not live up to his draft pedigree. However, after starting the season 3-0, Trubisky started to rip off 30 point games like it was nothing. All of the sudden, the door crept open with an idea that some time on the bench did Trubisky good.

The issue with that was that Trubisky beat a bunch of bad teams, and in the case of the Lions, lost to a bad team. The Bears had to make a decision on Mitch Trubisky, but with good performances against bad teams after getting benched, all of the sudden there was a question as to what exactly Trubisky was.

While many fans will see Sunday as a bad day in Chicago, there may be a bright side. The Chicago Bears SHOULD have answered all of their Mitch Trubisky questions. He is not the guy.

If the Bears bring him back, it has to be cheap and with the idea that they will bring in serious competition. That even seems to be generous to Trubisky. It is time, we know what he is.

He plays badly against good defenses and that did not change at all. He makes questionable decisions when the play breaks down and that did not change at all.

Trubisky running out of bounds on fourth down rather than reaching for the stick is everything you needed to see. It was the same as him throwing a pick in the end zone on first down against the Jags. Or getting strip-sacked with a lead against the Lions. Or the countless times he steps out of bounds to take a sack rather than throw the ball away.

Next. 5 Bears who will not be back. dark

The list of these issues is insanely long. So, the glimpse of hope in the past month slammed shut. That is sad for some but should be good news for many. The Chicago Bears got all the clarity they needed. If they pay for Trubisky, it is clearly a bad idea. If they let him walk, no one should blame them. He made his bed on Sunday.
