According to ESPN's Jeff Dickerson, 'unless Mitch Trubisky strings together a terrific training camp', it could only be a matter of time until Nick Foles permanently takes over under center for the Chicago Bears.
Mitch Trubisky has shown flashes of his upside in his time under center for the Chicago Bears, but with the team having a defense built to win now, the franchise is looking for their quarterback to help propel them to wins. Trubisky looked awful in 2019, and will be hard pressed to prove that he gives Chicago a better chance to win than former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles. Nagy has experience with Foles from their time together in both Philadelphia and Kansas City, as do some of the other assistants on the staff. This is likely a major part of the reason they chose to pursue him over one of this offseason's talented (and less expensive) free agent quarterbacks. His knowledge of the system and verbiage should help him overcome the lack of a normal offseason, and his proven track record makes him the Bears best option under center. Foles is an intriguing superflex and best ball target.
