Nick Foles, Your Quarterback

Nick Foles was acquired by the Chicago Bears on Wednesday. Three thoughts:

  • This is not a move meant to excite the fan base. This is move meant to show the fan base that the current starting QB is inadequate. Nobody trades fourth round picks to acquire backups. Foles is the starting quarterback in September.
  • I leaked this on Twitter yesterday after trying to hold the information back for a while. The Bears have been trying to trade Mitch Trubisky for weeks. Nobody wants him. I don’t see in a competition with Foles moving forward because I’m not convinced Trubisky will stick around.
  • Are we really that upset about the Bears giving up fourth round picks to IMPROVE at QUARTERBACK? Foles is not a great player but he’s the best QB on the Bears roster by a wide margin.
