The NFC North boasts one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time and two coming off promising seasons they will hope to build on in 2020.
The NFC North is loaded when it comes to premier quarterback talent.
Under center, it is a division still led by a future Hall of Fame quarterback whose time wearing the green and gold of the Green Bay Packers may be nearing its end.
The Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions each have quarterbacks coming off campaigns in which they excelled.
It is a different story for the Chicago Bears, whose two options to start provide little reason for excitement in 2020.
5. Mitchell Trubisky
The Bears not picking up Trubisky’s fifth-year option told you everything you needed to know about how they feel about the former second overall pick.
There is essentially no risk to picking up that option and the Bears still decided against doing so. In terms of his career in Chicago, Trubisky is now living on borrowed time regardless of whether he starts in 2020.
With his arm strength and his mobility, Trubisky has the skill set that many expected to quickly translate to the NFL level. The reason it hasn’t done so to the extent the Bears hoped is that it has been undermined by the fatal flaws that were present during his time at North Carolina.
Trubisky remains maddeningly inconsistent when it comes to his accuracy and his footwork and his poise under pressure can be described as limited at best.
Matt Nagy has been unable to fix his quarterback’s issues and the overwhelming likelihood is that Trubisky will move on to pastures new come the end of the 2020 season and try to rebuild a career that once looked promising when the Bears made the playoffs in 2018.
