Bears QB, Mitchell Trubisky, will make first NFL start on Monday.

After a slow start to the season, the Chicago Bears have named Mitchell Trubisky the starting QB moving forward. In pre-season action, Trubisky was 36-of-53 passing for 364 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions.

To say that the Chicago Bears have struggled to start the season is an under statement. After Mike Glennon led the Bears to a 1-3 start, the Bears front office has made the decision to let former Tarheel Mitchell Trubisky take over the reins of the offense.

The decision ultimately came after Glennon struggled in the Bears recent game vs. the Packers in which Glennon threw two interceptions and struggled to move the ball. Although the Bears wanted to wait before throwing their rookie QB to the wolves, the move couldn’t wait any longer.

He’s got that maturity and confidence you have to have in that position. We didn’t give ourselves a chance in two games. We have to change that.

In pre-season action, Trubisky was 36-of-53 passing for 364 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions. The rookie out of North Carolina manned the Tarheel for one season completing nearly 70 percent of his passes for 3,748 yards, 30 touchdowns and six interceptions. Trubisky is getting his chance sooner than expected, now it’s his time to shine.
