The Friday announcement that Chicago Bears Mitchell Trubisky won the quarterback competition was a golden opportunity for truthers to gloat and say I told you so.
The perfect time for Chicago Bears fans to pull up past quotes from media and bloggers and stick the crying laughing emoji above it. Stick it to the “blog boys, stat nerds” who mostly were just giving their fair observation of Mitchell Trubisky over his first three years in the league. That part of the fan base celebrated what Trubisky (a former #2 overall pick) was supposed to do. Especially when you consider the advantages he had coming into the competition.
What I simply do not understand is the excitement from this portion of the fan base celebrating in this magnitude. In the same offseason, Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans fans celebrated Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson‘s contract extensions. The Watson contract extension news, not even 24 hours after Trubisky was declared the winner of the quarterback competition should feel like a gut punch to Bears fans.
