“Tru-bis-y, Tru-bis-ky, Tru-bis-ky” could be heard throughout Raymond James stadium by Chicago Bears fans. After quarterback Mike Glennon displayed a substandard performance in a 29-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccanneers, it was more than any Bears fan could stomach. The chants shouted by fans to start the young rookie could be heard throughout social media, at times begging general manager to Ryan Pace to intervene.
But there is a reason for not playing the rookie, which I will share in a moment.
Granted, the Bears did not start off great, ushering yet another 0-2 start to the season, making it three years in a row. To add insult to injury…well, the stack of injuries that are once again plaguing this team.
But it is the performance of the starting quarterback that has the football world in a tizzy. Despite Glennon passing for 301 yards, and completing 31-45 passes, he finished the day with one touchdown and three turnovers. He took ownership of those mental mistakes stating, “Obviously it was not what I envisioned or hoped,” Glennon said about his return to Tampa Bay. “Ultimately it shows how important taking care of the football is. Four turnovers in the first half is not going to win many football games, three of those fall on me. Ultimately I have to do a better job and give us a better chance to win.”
