1. The Bears actually have a quarterback

If you were to ask a Jacksonville Jaguars fan who they’d rather have a quarterback between Blake Bortles and Mitchell Trubisky, odds are that they would pick Trubisky. In 2018, while Bortles tossed 13 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, Trubisky threw 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions despite missing two games.

Not only that, but ever since entering the NFL, Bortles has been highly inconsistent and has been the main reason the Jaguars are inconsistent each year. Trubisky, on the other hand, has shown improvement on multiple levels.

Over the last two offseasons, the Bears have done everything possible to ensure that Trubisky can be a franchise quarterback. General Manager Ryan Pace has invested heavily in playmakers and brought in an offensive minded head coach to ensure that Trubisky will be successful.

The point being made here is this: Trubisky has been far more successful than Bortles ever has and has an entire franchise rallying around him. Additionally, Bortles has been benched numerous times over the last two years while Trubisky has yet to be benched once.

In the NFL, it’s no secret that good quarterback play makes all the difference in the world. A major reason the Bears aren’t set to be the 2018 Jacksonville Jaguars is because Trubisky has been noticeably better than Bortles in his two NFL seasons.
