The Chicago Bears recently made a questionable move by trading for QB Nick Foles. Bears fans are split on this descision. The majority of them don’t like the move. They do have a good reason to be concerned because he played in four games with the Jaguars this past season and didn’t win a single one of them. Foles also suffered a broken left clavicle in the first game of the season. This led to rookie Gardner Minshew taking over and eventually taking the job from Foles. Foles is now on the Bears and here are a few good reasons why this is a good thing.
Mitchell Trubisky now has worthy competition. The past years the only competition Trubisky has had is a 30+ year old Chase Daniel. Trubisky is now on a short leash and know that if he messes up there is a Super Bowl MVP waiting on the bench. The Bears hope that this lights a fire under Trubisky and helps him become the player they drafted him to be. This is the scenario that Pace and the rest of the organization wants to see happen.
If Trubisky doesn’t play up to standard Foles would fit in perfectly. Foles is very familiar with Nagy’s offense, they spent some time together in Kansas City. Foles doesn’t only have connections to Nagy, he’s also spent time with John DeFillipo in Jacksonville and Philly. With the COVID-19 affecting the sports world, training camp and other offseason activities will most likley be postponed or canceled. Foles wouldn’t have a problem because he already knows the offense. Foles may even be able to mentor Mitch.
The Foles trade isn’t as bad as it first seemed. Bears fans should give Foles a chance. Who knows he could bring a Super Bowl to Chicago,
