After Nagy’s comments, it seems that Trubisky has the edge heading into this competition while Pace’s comments make it seem that Foles has the same shot starting week one as Trubisky. Let’s take a look at both quarterbacks recent seasons in the league.
Trubisky will be entering his fourth season with the Chicago Bears as he has yet to have his break out moment with the team. Trubisky has started a total of 41 games with the Bears with throwing for 8,554 passing yards, 48 touchdowns, and 29 interceptions. An average of 208 passing yards per game at least one touchdown and 0.7 INT. Case in point nothing fancy for Trubisky. Chicago’s defense has been the captain of the ship thus far in the past seasons as records of 8-8 and 12-4 have been gifted by that fierce defense. Chicago is waiting for the moment Trubisky breaks out and leads this team, but if he continues to play average ball, might as well get another man in for the job.
Foles opened the 2019 season as the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars as it seemed to be his final spot for his career. He was coming off a Super Bowl victory with the Philadelphia Eagles and seemed Foles career might be heading upwards again. However, he suffered a fractured clavicle in his very first games, and could never get it going again. With backup QB Gardner Minshew stealing the fame in Jacksonville, it was time for Foles to move on as he landed in Chicago. Foles has yet to relive his 2013 fame when he started 10 games for Philadelphia throwing for 27 touchdowns and two interceptions. Since the 2013 season, Foles has started in 32 regular season games throwing 38 touchdowns and 28 interceptions. Foles has been on the decline ever since as this could be his last shot starting in the NFL.
Who do you have winning this QB competition?
