According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, the Chicago Bears have named their starting quarterback for Monday Night’s game against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 5. Mitchell Trubisky, the second overall pick out of North Carolina, will replace Mike Glennon behind center after Glennon lead the franchise to a 1-3 start for the Bears.
This is music to the ears of Bears fans who have been demanding a quarterback change since the start of the season. Many fans threatened to walk away from attending games if Glennon continued. Fans believe that Trubisky would give them a better chance to win due to his performance in the preseason.
After the loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday Night Football, the coaching staff had to assess all four weeks of game film to determine whether or not the losses were all on Glennons shoulders. Coaches film shows many facets to the loses in dropped passes, penalties on both sides of the ball, but the interceptions, fumbles and the inability to make corrections when needed forced the Bears to make this decision.
More news to follow as it unfolds.
