With all the speculation, there is one major reason why Nick Foles will be the Chicago Bears opening game starter.
Ever since the Chicago Bears traded for quarterback Nick Foles, there has been speculation among fans and pundits over who will be the starter for their first game. Will the Bears go with the experienced veteran, or ride with Mithell Trubisky, the No. 2 overall pick in 2017 who has yet to live up to expectations? Well, there may be one major reason why signs point to Foles.
Look, it’s fair to say the team has invested a significant amount in both Foles and Trubisky. In Foles, the Bears have tied up a decent amount of money and a fairly significant fourth-round draft pick, with which Ryan Pace has historically done some of his best work. In Trubisky, there is the personal investment that comes with staking your reputation on a player to such a degree that you trade up to select him over to superstars like Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson.
