2. Quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (2017-present)

I would like to welcome you all to the present-time Chicago Bears. Without a doubt, Mitchell Trubisky is as polarizing as they come.

Need I remind you, being “polarizing” doesn’t need to have anything to do with someone’s character or who they are as a person. Trubisky is as good of a guy as you’ll find. Ask around, and you’ll hear how hard he works and just what kind of loyal teammate he is.

As a person, I love the kid. He’s a great leader and a lovable guy. It’s hard to find anyone who would say differently.

As a quarterback, though, people are as split on him as any player in the league. His play on the field and outlook as a professional quarterback makes him incredibly polarizing.

Some Bears fans are done with him. Others continue to support him going forward and think he will develop into the franchise quarterback he was drafted to be.

The fact of the matter is, Trubisky will make you scratch your head at times. There are blatant plays where he simply doesn’t recognize the open man. Other times, he identifies the open guy, but doesn’t get him the ball.

Here and there, he has plays where he’ll hold onto the ball too long or make the wrong read on an RPO.

Trubisky is incredibly inconsistent, and for that reason, many fans want to see a change. Others, still, will make excuses for him. Whether it’s coaching, offensive line play or receivers dropping balls, Trubisky gets a lot of passes from some fans.

This is another guy where there is zero middle ground. After three seasons, you’re either in or you’re out.
