It’s no secret that Mitchell Trubisky is one of the most promising rookie quarterbacks this year and now Trubisky will finally get his chance to command the Bears offense full time. Chicago Head Coach John Fox officially gave the reins to the 2nd overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft and Trubisky takes over for a struggling Mike Glennon. It’s pretty obvious that Trubisky is a more gifted thrower than Glennon, particularly in the arm strength department. So that should help the Bears offense put up more big plays through the air and ultimately that’s going to make this team more competitive. Additionally Trubisky is physically stronger than Glennon which should result in the rookie being able to break more tackles and extending the play more often. All of those abilities are much more favorable than what Glennon brought to the table and now if you’re a Bears fan you really wish the team used that $45 million dollars on a more worthy player than their former starter (Glennon). That money could have been used on two or three offensive skill players to help Trubisky out but now it’s just wasted money down the drain. It also feels like Chicago decided to make the change after seeing everything DeShaun Watson has been able to accomplish down in Houston. It just goes to show that even though a guy is a rookie it doesn’t mean that player can’t have a big impact for his team. Trubisky truthfully should have been starting from day 1 however Fox’s conservative approach have led this team to a 1-3 record on the year. Obviously that won’t sit well with Bears ownership and now it’s really up to Mitchell Trubisky to save John Fox’s job. With 12 games left in the season anything is possible especially with a much better quarterback is at the helm. Keep in mind the quarterback position is the most important in pro football so this is significant upgrade for the Chicago Bears.
