Bears, coach John Fox fail to make puzzling quarterback situation sound simple

Bears coach John Fox said he didn't give any thought to benching Glennon and replacing with No. 2 overall draft pick Mitchell Trubisky.

Mike Glennon has been unequivocally bad, failing the eye test, the analytical test, and based on his lack of mobility, presumably the Presidential Physical Fitness Test. Trubisky being active on game day tells me the Bears think he has progressed enough to appear in games that matter. "(But) I think we're still too early in the season before we get caught up in everything".

Ahead 17-0, the Bucs were not finished as cornerback Robert McClain intercepted Glennon, returning the ball 47 yards for another Bucs touchdown.

FALCONS: All-Pro edge rusher Vic Beasley will miss 1-3 games with a mild hamstring strain sustained in Sunday night's 34-23 victory over the Packers.

Fair enough. Glennon wasn't the only reason the Bears lost to the Buccaneers. Trubisky will have to be remarkable to elevate the play of the Bears' offense. But Fox maintains that Glennon will remain the starter heading into this week's home game against the Steelers (2-0). Well, John Fox has spent two years telling us that this is a "performance-based business", and so far, Glennon's performance does not reflect an National Football League starter. The Bears rarely make sudden changed mid-season but a struggling team could force their hand. Veteran Mark Sanchez is the team's No. 3 and has been inactive for the first two games of the season.

"I said last night, when you play the ideal game, you can stop worrying about what you have to work on but I haven't seen it yet", Koetter said. Listen, I knew this was a rebuilding year, and I didn't expect this team to win more than 5 or 6 games, but what I saw on Sunday was an unprepared embarrassment that should be ashamed from the top all the way down to the bottom. "We're going to do everything in our power to look more like we did in Week 1 than we did in Week 2". "The point that you're (the media) probably talking about is the fourth quarter of (the Tampa game)". Barber proved himself useful in the second half, helping move the line, move the chains, and most importantly to move the clock. We all know the Steelers have the offsenive firepower to blow things wide open when they feel like it. After two games of Glennon, while the jury is still out, it would seem that Trubisky is the more suitable QB at this point and the better player.

Jahns: Wow ... or should I say, woof.

"I love where he is". The name of the game is to have guys that can get you big plays when you need them.

Added tight end Zach Miller: "Week to week (Trubisky) is getting better every day. Ultimately it shows how precious taking care of the football is", Glennon said. And in this case, more than normal, we might be seeing a coach favoring the long-term development of a valuable player over potential short-term gains, even though Fox might not be around to reap the benefits.

Smith and Cohen go way back - both are from rival I-AA programs, with Smith at North Carolina Central and Cohen at North Carolina A&T.

Though we may have to wait another week to see Mitch Trubisky, the way the Bears season is going, we should see him sooner rather than later, but as long as Fox is on the sidelines, his time could be a ways away. "I can't predict the future". I don't think 19-10 is a bad split for your first two ball-carriers, but I don't ever have a number in mind of what it should be. If you did, you'd be in another line of work.
