The Chicago Bears do not have a good track record at the quarterback position

For the last three years, we have been saying that Mitchell Trubisky has something. There have been flashes of brilliance among many ugly plays. Head coach Matt Nagy was not able to develop him at all, and some can say Trubisky even regressed as the offense got worse as the years went on. Even Nick Foles was not able to succeed in this offense, and it all comes back to Nagy who has not been able to create an offense that allows for a quarterback to thrive.

Sure, Trubisky had those three games where he looked good, but bootlegs and rollouts only get you so far. We saw how the Saints completely shut that down in the playoff game.

Bringing in a reclamation project that requires the right system and coaching might sound intriguing. I honestly think Sam Darnold would be a good guy to bring in because of his potential. Then I remember we are talking about the Bears, and that we cannot bank on turning a quarterback’s career around with this offense.

The best bet for the Bears would be to bring in someone that is not a question mark, like Carr or Winston. You know what you are going to get out of those players. They are not elite, but they will do enough to put you in a position to win.
