1. The quarterback competition

Heading into the offseason, the biggest move the Bears were going to make was at quarterback. General manager Ryan Pace did just that by trading a 2020 fourth-round pick for Nick Foles. Most are under the impression that Foles should start for one reason: His familiarity with the Bears coaching staff and knowledge of the offensive scheme that head coach Matt Nagy is running.

As of right now, there’s no clear cut winner. The Bears may be running virtual meetings but a key thing to keep in mind is that in the NFL, you win on the field, not in the meeting room. This means that there’s no knowing who has the upper hand between Foles and Trubisky.

Regardless of all the other moves the Bears have made in 2020, play at the quarterback position is what will determine how the 2020 season plays out. With good quarterback play, the Bears can easily be one of the best teams in the NFL in 2020. However, shaky quarterback play will hurt the team and force the defense to be on the field more than most expect.
