IT’S HAPPENING: Mitch Trubisky Reportedly Takes Over As Bears Starting QB

Chicago Bears Rumors

It looks like Trubisky Time is officially happening!


ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter reports Mitch Trubisky will make his NFL debut under the bright lights of Monday Night Football. The original plan for his development was to use 2017 as something of a redshirt year, but his accelerated growth in training camp and stellar play in the preseason changed expectations, perceptions, and the plan for the North Carolina standout.

Of course, the Bears signed Mike Glennon to be the team’s placeholder quarterback in the offseason. Glennon agreed to a three-year deal worth $45 million, but he has struggled under center and the offense has sputtered under his stewardship. The 28-year-old quarterback ranks 12th among quarterbacks in completion percentage, but has struggled in every other area, including giving away eight turnovers in the last 12 quarters of play.


Head coach John Fox was asked after Thursday’s loss whether he would insert Trubisky into the starting lineup, but while Fox never tipped his hand, he also didn’t rule out change at the position. Apparently, that change is coming a week from tonight at Soldier Field.

Soon, we’ll have much more on our expectations and predictions for his first start, but for now, just get excited, because this is awesome.
