The Chicago Bears signal caller is incredibly overanalyzed and now we have proof.

There may not be a more heavily scrutinized player in all of The National Football League then Chicago Bears quarterback, Mitchell Trubisky.

Through no fault of his own, a giant bullseye was placed on his back when the Bears moved up on spot to select him in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Since that time, the level of over-analysis has steadily grown, especially in light of the breakout season Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes had.

Well, that constant dissection of every move Trubisky makes May have finally reached a fever pitch this past week.

While appearing via phone on the Dan LeBatard Show, Trubisky discussed a number of topics germane to football and the prospects for the upcoming season. He said a number of things that should have given Bears fans a lot to be excited about — things that should have dominated the headlines last week.

Instead, do you know what did occupy the back pages of the tabloids? His choice of condiments on hot dogs. Only in Chicago would fans be more preoccupied with what a player puts on a tube-steak than the putrid performance their Chicago Bulls put out each night.

Nevertheless, when Trubisky mentioned he puts ketchup on his hot dogs, it offended the sensibilities of hot dog consumers all across the Windy City, who immediately took to social media to voice their displeasure.

Now I recognize a lot of it was tongue and cheek, but you know there were at least a few people out there who will swear his ketchup preference is just one more nail in the coffin. You just know there are people (meatballs) who will tell you ‘see, I told you he wasn’t the right guy for Chicago.’

3 reasons to extend Trubisky. dark. Next

If this news has taught us anything it is first, that the 2019 regular season can’t come soon enough because we desperately need something legitimate to talk about, and second, that Trubisky will forever be under the microscope and even something completely innocuous will stir the pot. I’d love to know how he likes his steak prepared, but I’m not sure fans are ready for that answer.
