Following Thursday night’s blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers on the road, Chicago Bears head coach John Fox said that “we need to make a lot of changes”.
For the past four weeks, the Bears have been playing under quarterback Mike Glennon who has not taken that step-forward to improve this offense. In five games, Mike Glennon has not proved that he is the long-term answer for the Chicago Bears and it is coming as shock to all of us that Glennon needs to be benched in favor of the preseason stud in rookie Mitchell Trubisky.
In tonight’s loss against Green Bay, Mike Glennon threw for 218 yards for 1 touchdown while getting picked twice, bringing his total to 4/5 TD/INT ratio on the season not to mention his three fumbles bring his total to 8 total turnovers on the season.
With the five-game Glennon skid more than likely over, Mitchell Trubisky should take over as the Chicago Bears starter next week at home vs. Minnesota. Mitchell Trubisky was the Bears first-round selection in the 2017 NFL Draft and has taken the team by storm during the preseason, despite pre/post draft criticism. We should get the official decision on the starting gig at quarterback heading into practice in preparation for the Vikings.
