The Bears thinking they have the best quarterbacks room in the league is a joke
It feels like an eternity since the Chicago Bears have had themselves a stud quarterback behind center. Former No. 2 overall pick Mitch Trubisky was supposed to be the answer to fans’ prayers, but he’s on the verge of losing his starting job.
That’s because the team went out and traded for Super Bowl-winning quarterback Nick Foles, who many expect to be the team’s starter come Week 1 in early September. Sure, Foles is a great addition, but Bears quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo coming out and saying Chicago has the top group in the league is nothing other than laughable.
“We’re the same people every day,” DeFilippo said in an interview with the Chicago Tribune. “But then we walk around with a little bit of swagger to ourselves in terms of knowing we’re the best quarterback room in the National Football League.”
“And that doesn’t mean we go around and are cocky and arrogant,” DeFilippo continued. “That just means we have a swagger about ourselves that the only (way we can be) beat is if we beat ourselves.”
To each their own, we suppose.
Will Mitch Trubisky or Nick Foles win the Bears’ starting job this fall?
While the quarterbacks coach is looking to fire up his players, there’s simply no way he can be taken seriously. The best quarterback room in the National Football League? Please. The Chiefs could cut their backups, and list a bag of chips as Patrick Mahomes No. 2 and Kansas City would still be better than Chicago.
Foles had a first and only season to forget in Jacksonville, while Trubisky has shown time and time again what a reach of a pick he was by the Bears in 2017.Maybe Foles, if he wins the starting job, can prove everyone wrong and make DeFilippo look brilliant in the coming months. For now, all we can do is just laugh at the Bears.
