Chicago Bears plan to start new quarterback

Tyler Miller, Staff Reporter

The Chicago Bears went into this season with extra confidence from both fans and the team.

Many believed that this was the year that the Bears actually had a chance of doing better than the years with Jay Cutler. They had fresh quarterbacks, which consisted of Mike Glennon from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers along with the 2017 second overall pick Mitchell Trubisky.

In the first preseason game Glennon made a disappointing start, which made Head Coach John Fox put in the young, 23 year old draft pick. Trubisky played an extremely solid game, and despite the Bears losing that game, the young quarterback showed promise and many began to believe that he was the future of this football team.

So far in the 2017-2018 season, the Bears are 1-3 with starting quarterback Glennon, who has  not delivered as he was expected to do. Many fans kept wanting the Bears to put Trubisky in, but their wishes weren’t being fulfilled with Glennon. The big question remained, when is Trubisky going to start? Well, it took about four games for that to happen.

After the humiliating 35-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers when the Bears gave up two touchdowns in the first quarter, Fox confirmed that the starter for Monday night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings will be Trubisky.

This is not the ideal situation or decision that the Bears wanted to make, but it was the right decision to make. The Bears were hesitant to start Trubisky since they paid so much for Glennon.

Momentum needs to build in order for the Bears to actually be a contender in their division. In order for the Bears to re-establish themselves, they need to move on from Mike Glennon.
