What were the Chicago Bears thinking? Why did they trade for Nick Foles if they’re just going to start Mitchell Trubisky anyway. And why would they pay Foles $6M more than Trubisky if he’s just going to be the backup in Chicago? And make no mistake about it Matt Nagy and Ryan Pace are holding out hope that they can salvage Trubisky. He’s a first round pick and they desperately want that situation to work out. The problem is Trubisky hasn’t shown enough arm talent throughout his three year career. There’s not enough touchdowns being thrown in the Windy City. And even though Foles gives this team another quarterback.
You have to realize that he lost the job in Jacksonville to Gardner Minshew. So it’s not the right time to pick up Foles because he seems to be fading away and close to retirement. All this move really does is turn up the pressure on Trubisky a little bit. But it’s very unlikely that there’s a QB change in Chicago. Therefore this doesn’t make any sense. It’s clear Pace is starting to cool off and that’s causing the Bears to take a step backwards. Foles was a miscalculation and they didn’t take care of their most important task. Which is finding someone who can truly replace Trubisky.
