John Fox: Bears Mike Glennon to remain starter following opener

The Bears selected Mitch Trubisky No. 2 overall

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky (10) throws a touchdown pass to wide receiver Victor Cruz (80) during the first half of an NFL preseason football game against the Denver Broncos, Thursday, Aug. 10, 2017, in Chicago.

The Bears so desperately wanted to manage the obvious discomfort of their quarterback situation, contorting themselves to declare this Mike Glennon's year and tamp down expectations for rookie Mitch Trubisky even as they defended their all-in push to grab him on draft night.

In June, Glennon admitted to thinking about his long-term future with the Bears after they drafted the rookie, saying those ideas brought about "unnecessary stress" and were "negative rather than positive". Pace gave the same message to Trubisky that evening: Glennon is the starter.

Glennon, a high-priced free agent addition, tossed a pick-6 on his second pass.

Trubisky has all of the traits coaches like to see in a new quarterback, but it yet to be seen how those traits transfer from college to the NFL.

"Our depth chart is not going to change after one game", Fox said.

The North Carolina product finished with 166 passing yards, 38 rushing yards and a touchdown and directed the Bears from a 10-0 deficit to a 17-10 lead before Denver scored two touchdowns in the last 6:01 of the game to clinch a victory.

Trubisky replaced backup Mark Sanchez just before halftime and directed TD drives of 50 and 75 yards, hitting on his first nine passes.

Glennon was all ready to go out there and show he deserves to be the starter for the Bears, but that went off the rails quickly when on his second pass attempt of the night, the ball landed in the arms of Chris Harris who took it back to the house for the score. I think that's just semantics. "We've got Trevor and we've got Paxton, who we're satisfied with".

"Just play great situational football, control the game", Trubisky said. The third possession did not go well either. I was already a major Trubisky believer before this game. It would also help him to get some reps against the Cardinals top defense.

As much effort as the Bears have put into submarining any notion they could have an actual competition for spots on the quarterback depth chart, it's hard to imagine the exhibition opener would lead the powers that be to reverse direction.
