The Chicago Bears are hoping that Mitchell Trubisky could have a similar turnaround to two stars from Chicago’s baseball teams.
The Chicago Bears have a lot on their plate when football gets going. They have one of the best defenses (if not the number one best) in the National Football League. That means that bad quarterback play has kept them down over the past year and will continue to keep them down if it doesn’t get better. They traded a fourth-round pick for Nick Foles earlier this offseason to compete with Mitchell Trubisky for the starting job.
The Bears took Trubisky with the second overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft ahead of studs like Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes and he has been awful, especially in 2019. He seems to be getting one more chance to be the Bears starting quarterback as they didn’t pick up his fifth-year option. If this year goes poorly for him, he will be gone.
