Hello Mitch, or do you prefer Mitchell? Either way, welcome to Chicago where the backup quarterback is the favorite, until he isn’t. I know you got off to a rough start with the neurotic Bears fan base. We want a starter under center that can be the franchise quarterback, but we don’t really want to
pay the price overpay for one. Kinda like wanting something from Santa without actually even pretending to be good for most of the year.
Don’t worry, we fans have the attention span of a concussed kitten and have already gone through the The Five stages of being a Bears Fan: Anger, Frustration, more anger, more frustration, WTF and rationalization.
Here’s the thing: Even if the Bears drafted the next Tom Brady they were not going to go to the Superbowl this season. Even if the Bears could get in a Delorean, kidnap and sign THE Tom Brady, they would not go to the Superbowl this season. Now if they got Bill Belichick that’s a different story because his contract with the devil stipulates a SB appears every 2.5 years on average.
So I’m okay with the decision to trade up and get a young QB that they can develop. Note: I forgot to officially state it anywhere to prove it, but I felt the Bears would draft you if you were available because your name is as close to Polish sounding as you can get without grabbing someone from University of Warsaw and that could help him in a town like Chicago. Unless you become Tri-fumble-sky.
Now here’s the advice you didn’t ask for. Use the time you have to research some of the less popular Bears Quarterbacks (see the last
two three decades). See also Quarterback Controversy. Pace and Fox say that Mike Glennon is the starter, and he is, until he isn’t. See 2nd quarter of the 3rd game of the season.
- Don’t be a training camp holdout over money
- Learn to embrace the Media
- don’t commit any turnovers. EVER.
Chicago is and will always be a football town and if you get us to a Superbowl you will be treated like royalty around these parts. If you don’t, you will end up selling insurance in Ohio. See former Bears first rounders.
