At this stage, the Chicago Bears could switch it up in a big way at the quarterback position.
Whose fault is it? That’s the question roaming around the minds of so many Chicago Bears fans at the moment. Who is at fault for the inexcusable offensive output thus far, and specifically in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts?
Some thought the offense would magically take a step forward with Nick Foles under center. After all, benching Mitchell Trubisky and turning to Foles ended with a comeback victory against the Atlanta Falcons. All was fine and dandy when the Bears were 3-0.
But, that Falcons defense was a mess. The Bears had no business falling behind in the first place, whether it was Trubisky or Foles at the helm.
Now, head coach Matt Nagy is in on Foles. But, the problems remain. Nagy continues to baffle us with his inability to call plays. He’s showing the same flaws as he had in 2019 and refuses to do the sensical thing in so many scenarios.
Clearly, Nagy is the biggest problem in Chicago right now. But, it’s also clear he and the organization wish to move on from Trubisky. From the way the coaching staff has answered questions over the past week and a half, you can tell there is no plan to re-sign the fourth-year pro.
In the meantime, how do the Bears correct the position? Do they depend on Trubisky as a backup for this year? What if they could go out and get a replacement?
Better yet, maybe they could go out and get someone who offers even a little more hope for the future.
There are some intriguing quarterback stories going on at this point in the season. Some are a big deal. Others aren’t as polarizing. But, if the Bears decided to make a move at the position, one of the following could end up making some sense.
