Trubisky shines – Is it fool’s gold?


Broncos 24 Bears 17

Quarterback stats (Cue Yeti):

Mitchell Trubisky – 18/25, 166 yards, 1 TD, 103.1 Rating; 3 rushes for 38 yards

Mike Glennon (sucks): 2/8, 20 yards, 1 INT (returned for a touchdown)

Mark “Dirty” Sanchez: 1/4, 4 yards

Trubisky completed his first nine passes and all were right on the money. The accuracy was just insane on his attempts. On the scoring drives, he did a great job of eating up the clock while running the offense smoothly. If it weren’t for the I-Pass defense in the fourth quarter, they win this game. He nearly led them to a touchdown in the final seconds. Impressive.

We’ve seen this before, correct? I can just remember Caleb Hanie tearing it up in the preseason only to suck ass in the regular season.

While you were (or weren’t) watching the Bears, former Bear David Fales (!) threw a 99-yard touchdown pass for the Dolphins. While I liked Fales, this is proof that the preseason isn’t always what it’s built up to be.

Bears vs. Cardinals next Saturday night in the desert.

    The NFL preseason is such a prick-tease. Ask the Lions, whose 0-16 team went unbeaten during the preseason.

    Trubisky made a good first impression, much better than the one QB who went to back-to-back AFC title games and the other QB who got handed $45M over three years.

    Glennon will still be the Opening Day QB. I don’t care if Trubisky puts up All-Pro numbers in the next three games; that early Bears schedule is not the time to do a trial by fire of your future QB.

    So, if one shitty kicker on the team isn’t enough, the Bears are doing their best to add another to the mix. WHY!?!?!?!??!?

    If the Bears were serious about turning their fortunes around, they’d make Jim Harbaugh an offer he couldn’t refuse. And they wouldn’t need Luka Brazzi to provide muscle to make it happen!

    Not that I really want the Bears to get better, being a Packer fan myself. But, I hate seeing Fro upset.

    Hey, don’t worry about me being pissed off. That’s how the Bears have made me my entire life.

    At least you’ve seen your team win two Super Bowls in the spam of 14 years. And as long as Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback, they have just as good of a shot as any other team.

    Let’s throw in this idea: say that Pace is assembling this alleged football team to get John Fox fired so he can pick his own coach. Who the fuck is out there who he’s going to hire? Another Rooney Rule dumpster fire like Raheem Morris (Tampa) or soon-to-be fired Todd Bowles (J-E-T-S!)? Some assistant or coordinator who’s looking for his first job? Another retread? And if he does find his golden coach, Pace hasn’t proven that he can draft to save his immortal soul.

    Fro, you weren’t around to see the 85 Bears? That team, in my opinion, was the greatest team in NFL history. I watched all their playoff games, and I have never seen a team manhandle NFL teams like the Bears did that year. It was like they were playing High School teams! Yeah, it was that dominating! They should have gone undefeated.

    I hear so much about them and while I have seen all of the highlights and watched the NFL Network’s replay of that Super Bowl, I was three months away from being born the night they won it. At 31, the closest I had ever seen to them winning it all was in 2007. To this day, that night still pisses me off.

    Lovie Smith and Ron Turner shit all over that game. And Danieal Manning forgetting to cover Reggie Wayne on that touchdown pass still pisses me off. When Thomas Jones and Cedric Benson show no mercy running the ball, Lovie decides to let them pass the rest of the game.

    I know fans of all teams appreciate that ’85 team even though they didn’t cheer for them. I’d like the Bears to win the Super Bowl just so I could stop hearing about it!

    Fro, You’re 31? My oldest son is 35. You’re just a pup! 🙂

    Cubs win 15-5 last night and can only manage 1 lousy run against the Reds tonight and lose 2-1 thanks to Chuckys favorite, “Stropie”!

    Just amazing. A team with youth, a hard fought WS championship under their belts, and most of the players back from that team, and they look like bottom feeders this year.

    Even if they make the playoffs they’re one and done.

    …aaand another wonderful effort by the Cubs bullpen. Dammit.
