The Chicago Bears shocked the world by trading up a spot in the draft to land their future franchise quarterback in Mitch Trubisky. Some people are happy with the pick, some are livid. But overall, it needed to be done.

Since Jay Cutler came to Chicago in 2009, fans grew a hatred for him like no other. The inconsistent, hit-or-miss quarterback was finally released this offseason. With that move, the fans got what they wanted. Bears fans have been calling for our front office to draft a quarterback since the demise of Jay Cutler. So why are fans upset?

Ryan Pace seems to have an eye for talent, and Mitch Trubisky was the No. 1 quarterback in this draft. People have been saying “wait for next year” for far too long. At some point, the franchise QB needs to be identified and thrown into the development process.

We now have our future quarterback.¬†Whether¬†you’re a fan of it or not, Mitch Trubisky is the future of the Chicago Bears. Add some weapons around him, mold him into our system and by 2019, he’ll be an amazing quarterback. You heard it here first.

    “Ryan Pace seems to have an eye for talent”?? 1st he gets played by Lynch and quite possibly by the Browns too. A 3rd team ACC QB for 2016 doesn’t offer hope for a 3-13 team that was woefully undermanned on defense.

      He didn’t get played. There are plenty of reports out there about teams having interest in trading into the top 5 (including our pick, since no one knew we wanted Trubisky). Did we overpay a little, and reach a little for a top QB prospect? Yes. But we didn’t give up any future 1st or 2nd rounders so it’s not like we gimped the team for years to come. Im actually excited as hell to watch the Bears this year. We’ll probably still suck, but at least we’ll have a blueprint going forward. Just be glad we’re not the Bulls.

        Unnamed reports. Hey I certainly hope Pace proves me wrong but he hasn’t done anything with his top picks yet to warrant confidence. Yes he hit on Whitehair and got a nice pick in the 6th round with Howard last year but who the heck would you have developing Trubisky?? Loggans?? With a brutal schedule to start the season and still plenty of holes that were not addressed with the draft, I’m not excited at all with this upcoming season. Fox is dead man walking and if you have another 3-13 season the Bears might just blow it all up again. Then the Trubisky pick becomes moot and we are the new Cleveland Browns and I’m wearing a paper bag on Sunday’s I don’t know if you go to the games but it was friggen brutal last year and the fan base is getting real restless.
