The Chicago Bears could consider bringing in a stud quarterback after 2020 or 2021.

It feels like the Chicago Bears are never going to have a good quarterback. They have been stuck with complete mediocrity or less at the position for the entirety of their franchise. Even in the one year we always look back to, 1985, they didn’t have some superstar under center. Jim McMahon wasn’t bad or anything like that but he isn’t an all-time great by any means. He wasn’t even the best quarterback in Bears history.

The guy who probably takes the technical claim of “best in franchise history” is Jay Cutler and he stunk up the joint more often than not. He holds a good amount of offensive records in the team’s history so that is why you almost have to call him the best by default. They haven’t even once had a guy who you would consider one of those elite top-five quarterbacks like Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, or Drew Brees.

Here in 2020, there is going to be a competition for the starting job between Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky. It is tough to predict how it is going to go because, at the end of the day, neither of them is the right man for the job. With Trubsky in 2019, the Bears offense was one of the worst in the league. They couldn’t move the ball to save their life and thus wasted a year of one of the best defenses in the National Football League.

With all of this negativity, it is sometimes fun to just dream. What would it be like for the Bears to acquire one of the game’s greatest quarterbacks? If it came in time to take advantage of the defense as is, we could be talking about a Super Bowl team. It is highly unlikely, but seeing one of these soon to be available guys come to Chicago would be a lot of fun:
