The Chicago Bears Rookie Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky Turned Heads in Preseason Debut
Bears rookie Mitchell Trubisky has a lot of promise. The kid played a downright stellar game in his NFL debut, overshadowing Bears’ starting quarterback Mike Glennon. Looks like he hasn’t quite earned the starting position yet but it’s a step in the right direction.

Chicago Sun Times– Going 18-25 for 166 yards was all Trubisky needed to do to solidify his starting role, according to Bears legend Mike Ditka.
“You’ve got problems,” Ditka told TMZ Sports if the Bears choose to start Mike Glennon over Trubisky.
“What I saw out of Trubisky for a rookie in his first game I thought was outstanding.”
In fact, Ditka thought Trubisky’s debut was so outstanding, he said the Bears rookie quarterback was better than Tom Brady and Fran Tarkenton in their first NFL games.
“It’s clear cut he should be your starter,” Ditka said.
As a Bears fan myself, I know they’ll start conservative and stick with Glennon for the time being, but I think Ditka is right. Kid put points on the board within minutes while Glennon sat on the sidelines looking worried. Do you want to win games? Bench Mike Glennon. Plain and simple.
