NFC Notes: Foles, Trubisky, Bears, Ifedi, Lewis, Giants

NFC Notes: Foles, Trubisky, Bears, Ifedi, Lewis, Giants”

He received a great deal of criticism after refusing to play Trubisky or many of his starters in the preseason past year, so his shift to increased playing time for the young quarterback this upcoming preseason signals change could be coming to the Bears. But instead of taking another big step forward past year, he struggled as the Bears stumbled to an 8-8 record and missed the playoffs after winning the NFC North at 12-4 in 2018.

I suppose I can't tell you on the one hand to mostly ignore everything the Bears were saying before free agency as it relates to the quarterback spot, and then turn around and tell you now that you should definitely believe everything the Bears are saying about the quarterback spot.

Trubisky is the incumbent and is being treated as such for now, but Biggs thinks the team is just paying lip-service to the former number two overall pick.

Fast-forward to now, they've got their guy in Nick Foles.

"When we walk in on the first day, whenever it is, Mitch will be first in the huddle", Nagy said.

There will be a competition between Trubisky and Foles.

"I'm excited for this opportunity", Foles said Friday during a conference call with the media.

The general manager has provided himself with a legitimate Plan B in Foles, who quarterbacked the Eagles to a stunning postseason win over those same Bears in the 2018 season.

"Him and I were able to start out on the right foot with our discussions".

"I would say there is a strong infrastructure there with the knowledge of it". "Mitch has been there for a couple years, Mitch has been the quarterback, and I'm respectful to that situation".

So the Bears brought in Foles from Jacksonville, for the cost a fourth-round pick and a reworked contract. The former Super Bowl MVP started just four games past year due to a collarbone injury and was outperformed by rookie Gardner Minshew.

"The quarterback competition becomes such a big thing in the National Football League, which it is". It can also be an enormous distraction when it happens at the quarterback position. "But ultimately we have to do what's best for the Chicago Bears". He's familiar with the Bears' system and worked with Nagy under Andy Reid when they were with the Eagles and Kansas City.

Note: The Bears signed LB Barkevious Mingo and re-signed LB Isaiah Irving to one-year contracts. Irving has played primarily on special teams in three seasons with the Bears.
