How long can Bears avoid QB controversy between Mitchell Trubisky, Mike Glennon?

Trubisky showed exactly why general manager Ryan Pace traded up a spot with San Francisco to draft him with the No. 2 overall pick.

To say Da Coach was impressed with the rookie's preseason debut Thursday night is a gross understatement.

After Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch combined for zero touchdown passes and one field goal drive on Thursday evening, the Denver Broncos sent in undrafted rookie quarterback Kyle Sloter to finish up the game.

Trubisky's performance looked even better next to Glennon, who completed just two of eight pass attempts for 20 yards and threw an interception.

Tarik Cohen, the Chicago Bears' fourth-round draft pick from A&T, made a strong impression in the team's National Football League preseason opener on Thursday night. The Broncos do have a very strong defense led\ by sack machine Von Miller, which once again will help keep them in nearly any football game. You bet. Is the Bears quarterback situation the laughing stock of the NFL? No. In his three series, playing with a mix of first and second team players, Siemain was 6-for-7 for 51 yards and one sack, compiling a 97 passer rating and leading the offense to three points in three drives. Benny Cunningham's 1-yard TD run ended the second scoring drive with 5:35 left in the third quarter.

The national executive meeting of the JD (U) is scheduled on 19 August and a decision might be taken on Yadav before that. But Yadav did not spare Nitish on his first day of visit signalling he is ready to face any action from the party.

"Our depth chart is not going to change after one game, particularly a preseason game", coach John Fox said.

That said, in their opener against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night, the Chicago Bears' first-team offense was truly bad, and the defensive starters were at best lacking focus. Mark Sanchez finished 1-of-4.

Sadly, that was it for the good guys, as the Broncos took off from there on a 10-play, 60-yard drive that featured a pass interference call on Bryce Callahan offset by a Bronco penalty, offsides on Willie Young, an unnecessary roughness call on Young and roughing the passer by Sam Acho.

The North Carolina product completed 18 of 25 passes in his first pro appearance after making just 13 college starts. He didn't have to put too much thought into it; just go out and make plays. I don't think Trubisky is ready yet, but I think he's at least earned the opportunity to get some reps as the #2 QB and get some reps with the top offense. "And it brings us closer so we can approach it and get better as a group".
