Chicago Bears training camp: Quarterback position battle

  • Chicago Bears quarterback Mike Glennon looks to pass against the Denver Broncos during the first half of a preseason game Thursday

To say Da Coach was impressed with the rookie's preseason debut Thursday night is a gross understatement.

"What I saw out of Trubisky for a rookie in his first game I thought was outstanding", Ditka said.

A touchdown bomb from quarterback Kyle Sloter to rookie wideout Isaiah McKenzie tied the game up, and then a 41-yard TD run by running back De'Angelo Henderson - also a rookie - gave them the win. He struggled to get into a rhythm and completed a paltry 25 percent of his passes while averaging 2.5 yards per attempt.

The Broncos started Siemian over Lynch.

In an underwhelming performance from both quarterbacks - at least in big, eye-popping plays - the play of the day goes to a wide open pass from the third quarterback, Sloter.

Two weeks ago, as the Bears settled into training camp in Bourbonnais, someone asked the Bears GM the obvious: What if Trubisky is the best quarterback this preseason?

The bears punted on their second possession.

He led a drive that resulted in a 38 yard field goal from Brandon McManus in the first quarter to make it 10-0.

Trubisky, the Bears prized first round pick, had an impressive National Football League debut, completing 18 of 25 passes for 166 yards. But one game in August should not change the team's overall direction heading into the regular season.

Sadly, that was it for the good guys, as the Broncos took off from there on a 10-play, 60-yard drive that featured a pass interference call on Bryce Callahan offset by a Bronco penalty, offsides on Willie Young, an unnecessary roughness call on Young and roughing the passer by Sam Acho.

Trubisky replaced Sanchez with 1:55 left in the first half, engineering a 6-play, 50-yard touchdown drive in two-minute mode.

Despite this, Bears head coach John Fox noted Thursday night that the team's quarterback depth chart will remain unchanged.

Trubisky is an excellent athlete who showed exciting arm talent, completing 12 of his first 13 throws on the night, and he definitely brought a buzz to Soldier Field.

While reading into one preseason game is, of course, risky and foolish, a thought here: Some key players on that side of the ball have noted that they're playing faster with a better knowledge of Fangio's system. Good for us. He's a really good player; provides some good help for us on the offense.
