After the meltdown v the Packers, the Glennon experiment is over and it is now Trubisky time so let’s look into his college career to gain an insight into what Bears fans might be able to expect in the coming weeks.

The former North Carolina Quarterback is going to make his Bears debut on Monday night football v the Vikings and there is reason for optimism. Last season Trubisky threw for 3,748 yards and 30 touchdowns. He went on to smashing several passing records. He not only has a strong arm but can also be viewed as a dual threat which can be demonstrated by also rushing for over 300 yards.

If you combine his impressive college stats with a promising pre-season where he threw for 364 yards three touchdowns and most importantly no turnovers. The Bears have tools that should enable Trubisky to demonstrate his undoubted ability. A strong offensive line featuring the fit again Kyle Long and a running game which has been the key to any positivity on the offence.  There is every chance that Trubisky could be a success in the Bears team.

However, with all rookies there is always reason for slight trepidation. One of those being the severe lack of experience. He only made 13 career starts for North Carolina and the majority of his snaps were taken out of the shotgun. So since the draft in April, Trubisky has had to learn about taking snaps under centre and call plays in the huddle whilst also learning the new offence which isn’t particularly strong at the wide receiver position. This leads on to another possibility. Tanner Gentry built some chemistry with Trubisky over pre-season and it can only aid the confidence of the new QB if Gentry becomes part of the developing offence.

One thing is for sure, Trubisky won’t be the finished article and it is important not to ask too much of the rookie but the change was needed and it’s not like it can get much worse than the abject performances of Glennon in the previous week. I am sure you will agree it brings a whole new element of excitement to Monday night Football and the dawn of number 10.
