The Bears’ QB Competition Will Not Be Decided By Zoom

Chicago Bears

Like much of the world right now, the Chicago Bears are amongst those working from home in a pandemic. Which means, like many of us, the Bears are conducting meetings, interviews, and preparatory work via video conference chats.

However, Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy conceded that Zoom meetings aren’t the best place for all football business to take place:

The quarterback competition between Mitch Trubisky and Nick Foles will not be decided by Zoom chat. Nor will it be decided by Madden (even though you really shouldn’t laugh at my suggestion). Instead, the winner of the Bears’ QB showdown will be decided by who performs best in the preseason. In fact, Nagy told reporters (via Zoom video conferencing, because duh!) that the best place to evaluate the quarterbacks is by watching them in the preseason.

And yes, that means the regulars are going to get some serious burn throughout the exhibition season. In April, Nagy said that he expected his starters to play in the preseason – a change of course from the first two years of Nagy’s command, but one that comes essentially as a mea culpa after last year’s decision to hold out regulars from all four of the Bears’ preseason contests seemed to backfire.

So if Foles or Trubisky thought they would be able to Zoom their way to the top of the depth chart, they have another thing coming their way.
