Chase Daniel

The Bears signed backup quarterback Chase Daniel to a two-year, $10 million deal this past offseason. Daniel reunites with his former quarterback coach Nagy, who he first worked under as the backup quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs from 2013-2015. Daniel started in the Hall of Fame game with Trubisky watching from the sideline.

Daniel had a solid opening drive, marching the team down the field, and throwing a great pass in the endzone to wide receiver Bennie Fowler that was dropped. On the next play, Daniel felt immediate pressure and threw the ball off the helmet of an offensive lineman, leading to an interception by Ravens defensive back Chuck Clark.

Daniel bounced back on the next drive after the Bears defense secured an interception leading to a short field for the quarterback. On 1st and goal, Daniel hit fullback Michael Burton over the middle for his first touchdown pass as a Bear. Unfortunately, there weren’t many other great moments for Daniel after his touchdown drive.

Daniel threw an interception on the first play of the next Bears drive, and only accomplished one first down the rest of the first half. Daniel was under defensive pressure a lot, but he made many bad decisions and didn’t look comfortable in the pocket aside from one scoring drive. Daniel will have to be better in the future to prove himself as a viable backup in case Trubisky goes down.
