Regardless of how the Glennon situation plays out, expect Trubisky to be handed the reins sometime in the near future.
A one-year starter at North Carolina, Trubisky was an All-Ohio selection and the 2012 Ohio Mr. Football Award victor after a standout career at Mentor High School. Mike Glennon was the starter. Chris Harris Jr. intercepted an overthrown pass on the game's third play from scrimmage and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown.
Five plays after giving up the sack, Watson was flagged for a penalty on the same play the Bears were also flagged. Backup Mark Sanchez played sparingly in the second quarter, going 1-for-4 for 4 yards.
It was a charmed evening from the start. RB Ka'Deem Carey left with a quad injury. His first pass was an incompletion but pass interference wiped it out.
That was followed up by a three-and-out. One of the few knocks against Trubisky is something in which he can't really help... his experience. Another drive resulted in a field goal. He led the Broncos to back-to-back touchdown drives to erase a seven-point deficit in the fourth period.
Glennon had a very solid 2013 season in Tampa, throwing for 2,608 yards and 19 touchdowns with only nine interceptions.
Despite this, Bears head coach John Fox noted Thursday night that the team's quarterback depth chart will remain unchanged. Like any Thirsty Thursday, though, you had to stay late for the action.
"I thought it was fun". "What I saw out of Trubisky for a rookie in his first game I thought was outstanding".
"I thought it was good".
It was a small step for the Broncos rookies, running past guys who will be looking for work in a couple weeks, but it was a glimpse into just what Vance Joseph may have conjured up with his juicer. They'd love if he took every meaningful snap this season and gave Trubisky time to develop. But one game in August should not change the team's overall direction heading into the regular season.
That leaves one spot if the Bears carry six, or possibly two if they carry six and Bellamy isn't one of them.
With Leury Garcia on second, Moncada snuck a ground ball through the infield to plate the winning run in a 3-2 White Sox victory to finish off a sweep of the AL leaders. "Hopefully it's the first game in a long journey". It made fans in Chicago wish for the good ol' days of Jay Cutler, who's smokin' and laughin' - all the way to the bank - in Miami.
