Ditka: 'Clear cut' Trubisky should be Bears starter

Mitch Trubisky Finally an NFL QB Not Afraid to Stand for His Beliefs

Will Bears fans now suffer through a week of hearing about how Glennon was an bad signing?

CHICAGO BEARS: The Bears are another team with quarterback questions. Nobody has any idea how it will continue to play out in the next three weeks with all kinds of narrative twists to come, and it will all be televised.

Glennon had a rough time in his first appearance for Chicago. So let's start with Glennon. The Bears gave up a king's ransom for a relatively small payoff - there was no guarantee Trubisky was going to be taken by another team - and while Trubisky clearly had talent, he wasn't considered a can't-miss quarterback prospect. But that was all assuming Glennon plays like a viable stopgap alternative. They overpaid for Mike Glennon in free agency, who may or may not open the season as a starter.

The Bears signed Glennon from Tampa Bay to a three-year $57-million contract to be their starter, and early signs were awful.

It is time to jump aboard the Mitch Trubisky train.

The Chicago Bears took plenty of grief for trading up one spot in the 2017 National Football League draft to take North Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky, but the early returns couldn't have looked better for the rookie passer.




Though Bears starter Mike Glennon (2 of 8, 20 yards) struggled in his limited action, coach John Fox was not about to entertain any talk of a quarterback controversy. Trubisky thrived at North Carolina, passing for 3,748 yards and 30 touchdowns to only six interceptions.

Trubisky's evening was breathtaking, but he's had an up-and-down training camp in which he hasn't been able to string good days together.

Trubisky led the Bears 53 yards downfield in the final two minutes, but he was unable to connect with wide receiver Deonte Thompson in the end zone after rolling to his left.

The Bears mortgaged a portion of their future to acquire Trubisky, trading away their 2017 third and fourth round picks, as well as a 2018 third round pick in addition to swapping their No. 3 overall pick for the San Fransisco 49ers No. 2 overall. That's what they did against the Bears, spurring the late scoring frenzy. I do not want to overreact to one preseason game against backup defensive players, but I can not help but be excited.

Trubisky replaced backup Mark Sanchez just before halftime and directed TD drives of 50 and 75 yards, hitting on his first nine passes.

What about giving Sloter some second-team reps?
