When you think about the Chicago Bears' 2020 outlook, nothing seems conclusive. Following a division title and then an 8-8 season, we can argue this team has the roster to bounce back but goes into the upcoming campaign with major question marks.
General manager Ryan Pace contributed to his team's uncertainty when he acquired Nick Foles from the Jacksonville Jaguars and declined Mitchell Trubisky's fifth-year option. That's clearly a quarterback controversy, though the Bears call it an open competition.
Head coach Matt Nagy has been transparent about the imminent battle between Foles and Trubisky, and without a preseason, the coaching staff will assess the two signal-callers on every snap and situation, per Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times:
"When we get a chance to go out there, we're evaluating those quarterbacks with every single play. Not just throw, but every single check that they make at the line of scrimmage, every bit of leadership that they show in and out of the huddle, we're there watching how they react to a specific play in practice. ...
"And we feel confident that we believe it'll all play itself out. It'll be completely open, and we're just going to take it day by day."
On one hand, Trubisky has two years of experience in Nagy's system, and he threw for 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions with a 66.6 percent completion rate as a 2018 Pro Bowler before a step back last year. However, Allen Robinson II had a big season, eclipsing 1,100 receiving yards for the first time since 2015 and registering a 63.6 percent catch rate.
