The Chicago Bears dropped to 1-3 on the year last night in a 35-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers. Mike Glennon struggled last night as he completed 21-of-33 passes for 218 yards one touchdown and two interceptions. Glennon also was strip sacked and a ball bounced off his knee for a fumble (miscommunication between him and the center).
Glennon has completed 93-of-140 passes for 833 yards four touchdowns and five interceptions this season. That’s not great but it isn’t terrible. Whenever Glennon looks bad, people are always in a rush for Trubisky. I totally understand the fact that the Bears traded a spot to draft him, but they can’t rush the process either.
The Bears don’t play again until next Monday Night on the road against the Minnesota Vikings. I don’t think the Bears want to start Mitchell Trubisky in a hostile environment and the Vikings also have a good defense. If Trubisky were to look awful, then people will say he is a bust after one game.
After that, the Bears play at Baltimore and I don’t think that would be good for Trubisky either. If Chicago were to make this move, they should make it before Chicago plays the New Orleans Saints in New Orleans on October 29 or wait till after the bye week to make the move. After the bye week, Chicago plays the Green Bay Packers on November 12.
In the preseason, Trubisky completed 36-of-53 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns. He also rushed for 48 yards on five carries. At North Carolina last season, Mitchell Trubisky completed 304-of-446 passes for 3,748 yards 30 touchdowns and six interceptions.
The Chicago Bears won’t be making the playoffs anyways this season. With the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, and the Detroit Lions being in the same division as them, it will be difficult to win ball games. Glennon did sign a big three-year deal worth $45 million in the offseason, but the Bears could also look at the future.
Head coach John Fox thinks there are other problems with this team and I agree with him.
