The Chicago Bears entered the offseason by standing by Mitchell Trubisky as their quarterback for the future. Now, even after a flurry of moves that reflect the opposite, the Bears are doubling down on the former No. 2 overall pick.

Chicago kicked off its offseason by trading for Nick Foles, a move that put Trubisky on notice. Just a few weeks after the organization was mocked once again for their draft-day blunder, the Bears declined the fifth-year option on Trubisky.

Now just months away from the start of training camp and with the regular season on schedule, Bears general manager Ryan Pace threw his support behind Trubisky once again. Despite the 25-year-old quarterback coming off an ugly season that cost the Bears a shot at the playoffs, Pace told the Chicago Sun-Times that the team still backs the embattled QB. "We believe in Mitch — that doesn’t change," Pace said.

Foles is widely expected to become Chicago’s starting quarterback heading into camp. In limited playing time this past season with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the 31-year-old completed 65.8 percent of his passes and posted an 84.6 quarterback rating.

Before that, Foles signed a four-year, $88 million contract in free agency coming off a 2018 season that saw him throw for 1,413 yards and complete 72.3 percent of his attempts in five games with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Pace seems unwilling to admit at this point that he made a monumental mistake in the 2017 NFL Draft. If he is going to keep his job past the 2020 season, he will likely need Foles to step up or for Trubisky to prove him right. As our projected records for the 2020 season show, we don’t expect that to happen.

Why QB Dak Prescott should stick to his guns in contract dispute with Cowboys .
Dallas should take the offer Prescott reportedly made and run with it. He’ll prove to exceed the $175 million price tag and gives this team its best chance to win a Super Bowl. If they don’t, the Cowboys are destined for quarterback purgatory and that is something this organization can’t afford to experience.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.
