Why Sunday’s week 17 matchup against the Green Bay Packers will define Mitch Trubisky’s tenure with the Chicago Bears.
There are a number of words that could be used to describe the current state of the Chicago Bears franchise depending on who you’re talking to. Some use optimism because the Bears have a shot at the playoffs after losing six straight games in 2020. Others would say they’re pessimistic, citing the fact that General Manager Ryan Pace, head coach Matt Nagy, and starring quarterback Mitchell Trubisky could be returning in 2021 if the Bears somehow manage to sneak into the playoffs.
Over the last few weeks, Trubisky’s future has been a major point of conversation. Some say that despite how the 2020 season ends for the Bears, the franchise needs to move on. Others are in favor of bringing him back, using the reasoning that the Bears have finally figured out how to operate the offense and make Trubisky look good.
