The Chicago Bears are going to keep Nick Foles in at starting quarterback.
The Chicago Bears were dead in the waters on Sunday afternoon in their game against the Atlanta Falcons. They were down big and Mitchell Trubisky was looking bad once again. Well, without much warning, Matt Nagy pulled Trubisky out of the game and benched him. Nick Foles came in and made his first appearance in a Bears uniform. He did not disappoint as he led the Bears to a big comeback win to move them to 3-0. Now, the Bears named him to be their starting quarterback going forward.
He didn’t just come in and get lucky on multiple occasions either. Once he went under center, the offense seemed to just be one step quicker than they were the week before. It isn’t fun to say these things because Trubisky is a likable guy but he just wasn’t a sufficient quarterback most of the time. Ryan Pace acknowledged that he might have made a mistake in the 2017 draft when he traded for Foles and now it could pay off for him.
