I brought this up during this past week's Bears Talk Podcast, a couple of weeks after mentioning the possibility on Laurence Holmes' show on "670 The Score." Ryan Pace going all in on Mitch Trubisky could mean buying more time for John Fox and his staff (specifically Dowell Loggains) than the more common belief the head coach and his offensive coordinator are on their Chicago lifeline this fall. I see the complete opposite. If this team has any semblance of luck with injuries as opposed to Fox's first two seasons (though this week's injuries to Mark Sanchez and Cameron Meredith felt a bit ominous), it's hard to see a 3-13 repeat. No doubt, Fox will have to be at his best in keeping everyone together after what's expected to be a difficult first month. While the final two games of last season hinted otherwise, that's been one of Fox's strengths through a rebuild that's taken longer than expected now in Year 3, in part due to all the injuries. And if he can somehow find a way to guide his squad to (yes, improbably), split those first four games, imagine the psychological boost and belief that would provide. But back to Trubisky and the staff, specifically. Unless the General Manager senses a complete failure by Loggains and quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone in bringing the No. 2 overall pick along at a satisfactory "pace" as a rookie, would they really want to hit the reset button on his development all over again?
Mitch Trubisky pick means Bears staff might stick for 2018
