Here’s where we get crazy.

There’s no way the Arizona Cardinals actually get first-round compensation when they eventually deal away Josh Rosen. Odds are they get a day two pick and maybe some other fixings, but the first-round pick they desire is far too ambitious given that all signs point to Kyler Murray going first overall.

The Bears can get another young quarterback on a rookie deal. Rosen would be joining a team that has a vastly stronger offensive line and better receiving targets. Nagy’s system is far more advanced than whatever it was former offensive coordinator Mike McCoy was deploying. That involved running David Johnson into eight and nine-man boxes and then putting it on Rosen to bail them out on third and long.

If you watched Trubisky in his rookie year, the parallels are eerily similar. Dowell Loggains and John Fox babied him along as they marched to their walking papers.

Giving Rosen a fresh start would go a long way. I liked him the most out of the quarterback class in last year’s draft class. Unfortunately, things didn’t work out for him. PFF says that even though he was second to last on their list, his offensive line “was quite literally the worst in the NFL in 2018”. His jersey would stay cleaner and he would no question thrive in an offense that won’t handcuff him on every possession. There’s nowhere to go but up for the former UCLA Bruin.

This league is crazy and we’ve seen crazier. I want to see Ryan Pace mix things up a bit. Maybe they can get a first-rounder for Trubisky.

Did I trigger you, Bears fans?
