And we're off. One of the biggest position battles (and storylines) of this offseason has officially begun - the Chicago Bears' quarterback competition! -fires gun in the air-
The Bears brought in Nick Foles this year, to (hopefully) light a fire under Mitch Trubisky, and hope that one of them works out. We'll see, but they're currently running, throwing, passing, and all the baby steps required of a QB, so I guess that's good.
They're clearly not doing much here, so there won't be a front-runner for a while. Teams are expected to begin padded practices next week.
I fully expect Trubisky to be the starter for Chicago in Week One, but with that being said -- I think he'll be on a very short leash. The second he has a good, old-fashioned 'pick streak'? It's over for Mitch. Foles has the ability to be a bridge starter if they feel like Trubisky won't get it together, and that's what I expect to happen eventually.
