The Chicago Bears are one of the most interesting teams to watch in the NFL Preseason because there is a big quarterback battle going on in the Windy City. Mike Glennon is the new guy in town with a big contract, at least considering what he has done (or hasn’t) in the NFL. On the other hand, the Chicago Bears have used a lot of their future assets in order to move up on the draft board and take Mitchel Trubisky with the second overall pick.
In his first NFL game, Trubisky threw for 166 yards and one score against the Broncos, who are one of the best defensive squads in the league. Most of their main guys didn’t play, but this was still a good performance by the young Bears signal caller. Mike Glennon is going to have some competition with Trubisky playing like that. While he should still be favored to start in Week 1, we’ll see what Trubisky does against the Cardinals.
Speaking of the Cardinals, their depth chart might be changing at wide receiver as Jaron Brown is making his case as the second wideout on that team. When it comes to the quarterbacks, we don’t believe that Carson Palmer is a lock to be the starter whole year long. He hasn’t done much in the recent memory, and Drew Stanton is now an experienced QB who is going to wait for his chance. If he keeps performing in the preseason, coach Ariens is at least going to have him on his mind as soon as Palmer starts making bad decisions.
Cardinals have been pretty good against the Raiders last week at home, and we are going to pick them to win this duel against the Bears, with the final score of 21:13.
