After spending $45 million dollars over three years for an at best below average quarterback named Mike Glennon, the Chicago Bears will be starting rookie QB Mitch Trubisky next Monday night.
From the start we all knew Glennon was a waste of money. I don’t think anyone would have ever thought that he would make it the entire season as the starter either. In four games so far this season he has 4 touchdown passes and 5 interceptions.
Glennon led the bears to a 1-3 start to the season. This switch would have happened even if they were 3-1. The Bears have no long term goals with Glennon. Trubisky is the future of this franchise. The 1-3 start was just a solid reason to move on from Glennon.
Trubisky becomes just the fourth QB to get his first career start on Monday Night Football in the last 30 years. The other three on that list are Aaron Rodgers, Phillip Rivers, and Jim Harbaugh.
