So here we go again, the Bears were looking down at a very forgettable season. Much like the games against Tampa and Green Bay, the Bears season already felt over before it really began.

We struggled with yet another turnover-prone quarterback and, worst of all, he was far less talented than the prior one. You can put it any way you want, it doesn’t matter, Glennon was pure awful. His average yards per attempt was 5.95, his “game management” threw 5 interceptions and fumbled 3 times.

Fortunately, Ryan Pace made the smart decision in grabbing Trubisky in the draft and now we’ve learned that Trubisky will get the start. Playing Glennon was just prolonging the inevitable, this isn’t Glennon’s team and, once Trubisky’s name was called on draft night, it guaranteed us one thing: Glennon won’t be here next year.

So what did the Bears do to fix the problem? They put Glennon on the bench. He’s continued to put so much pressure on the defense and this defense has played about as well as you would like. But frustration sets in when the offense can’t move, which also creates penalties and tired players which, in turn, creates injuries.

No defense in the NFL respected Glennon’s ability to play the quarterback position and he did a good job proving them right. You don’t win games by playing a guy who doesn’t deserve it. Glennon, if anything, was riding on the fact that he cashed in big, $18 million big.

But patience has already worn for Bears fans, we’re sick and tired of mediocre football and would like to watch the team succeed. Stop with the excuses, if Trubisky falls flat his rookie year, Bears fans are still going to be more excited about him than Mike Glennon.

Not only does Trubisky have more talent than Glennon, but he also has more flair. There’s really no negative to playing him. Watching Glennon play is almost as bad as seeing people actually protect his play.

He was bad. Stop saying it’s not his fault, Cutler never got that decency. He was butchered for his turnover-prone self and, even when he came to play, he was always thrown under the bus for doing something wrong. The Bears finally got something right, this is Trubisky’s team and Glennon was just a bad attempt at a bridge.
