When he looks back on his tenure as Chicago Bears general manager, Ryan Pace will regret being so stubborn.
Another NFL Draft for the Chicago Bears has passed without selecting a quarterback or picking one up as an undrafted free agent. In general manager Ryan Pace’s six-year tenure, he has done that exactly once — in 2017 — when he traded up for Mitchell Trubisky.
Despite his stated belief that it is a good idea to try to draft a quarterback every year — which he famously said when hired — has not subscribed to his own philosophy. Or, alternatively, perhaps he never believed it in the first place and instead was simply paying lip service to a quarterback-starved franchise.
