This past weekend Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy officially announced QB Mitch Trubisky as Week One starter against the Detroit Lions. In making this decision Nagy emphasized that the job was not handed out, rather it was won. There has not been a lot of news coming from the Bears in terms of the progress of the competition throughout training camp. One thing for sure was Trubisky has stepped his game up this offseason. Not only was he performing with greater confidence, but his footwork was improved along with his accuracy. His accuracy improved significantly in the redzone.
While Trubisky is officially named the Week One starter, Nick Foles will serve as the backup ready to step into the starting role at any moment. Expect Coach Nagy to keep whoever is starting on a short leash.

With the competition officially over, there is great respect between the two Quarterbacks, after meeting for a significant amount of time with Nagy over the weekend, Foles immediately reached out to Trubisky to congratulate him on winning the starting role. The two players pushed themselves this training camp and it is time to see how the Bears offense will perform.
