    There wasn't a player in all of the National Football League who experienced a louder wake-up call this week than Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky. The Bears' acquisition of veteran quarterback Nick Foles in a trade Wednesday sent a clear and unmistakable message to the fourth-year pro.

    If Trubisky wants to be Chicago's starter in 2020, he's going to have to earn the job—and even if he does beat out Foles, the leash he's on isn't going to be especially long.

    In the opinion of Bleacher Report's Mike Tanier, it's that last option (a carousel at quarterback this year for the Bears) that is most likely.

    And that's not a good thing.

    "Trubisky vs. Foles is the worst kind of quarterback competition: fast-fading former prospect against overpriced journeyman. The Bears are throwing time, money and resources at two players, hoping one of them turns his career around. The most likely result will be a season of flip-flopping, Foles fumbles, Trubisky blunders and another missed opportunity to make a Super Bowl run while the defense still has a few championship-caliber pieces."

    As Jeff Arnold wrote for Forbes, as recently as February's scouting combine, Bears GM Ryan Pace voiced his belief in Trubisky as the team's quarterback of the future.

    "We believe in Mitch," Pace said. "Mitch knows he needs to be better. We need to be better around him. That's our goal."

    Bringing in another quarterback who is owed $21 million in guaranteed money tells a much different story.

    And actions, as they say, speak louder than words.

    Can Nick Foles revitalize the Bears back to 2018 form?

    Bears win total next season:

    Over 8.5 (-110)
    Under 8.5 (-110)

    Yes.

    I like the OVER here. They were 8-8 last year with Trubisky.

    Trubisky is possibly the worst QB in the league. Teams had to bend over backwards to help him stick to script.

    This is what happens when a player can't execute.

    This is why he is losing his job.

    The hardest thing for any NFL general manager to do is admit defeat on a first-round pick. Ryan Pace might be a little late on that when it comes to Mitch Trubisky, but give him credit for suppressing human nature in favor of steering the Bears out of their quarterback rut.

    It’ll be an “open competition,” between Trubisky and the newly acquired Nick Foles, and that’s most refreshing thing Pace has said in a year.

    “We want what’s best for the Chicago Bears — it’s as simple as that,” Pace said. “Let’s let these guys battle it out, let the process naturally happen and over time that decision will be made.”

    There are certainly some qualifiers for this competition — it’s likely that anything close to a tie will go Trubisky’s way, and coach Matt Nagy already said he’ll be the first on the field when practice begins — but it’s clear the Bears are past the Trubisky-or-bust mindset that helped make them one of the worst offenses in the NFL last season.

    It’s the beginning of the end for Trubisky, who went from No. 2 overall draft pick to competing with a 31-year-old journeyman in less than three calendar years.

    But it’s an escape hatch for Pace. It’s a brutal, but necessary concession — and it might save his job.

    The Bears are 34-46 in his five seasons in charge, a worse record than the Lions, Cardinals and Redskins, and he has botched a handful of high draft picks. His biggest mistake was trading up to take Trubisky, missing on Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson.

    Trading for Foles, who cost just a fourth-round pick and a budget-friendly salary-cap hit, is his attempt to correct it. At least he’s trying.

    Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky says he adjusted his mechanics in the offseason. Feels more balanced and better about how the ball is coming out. Feels his accuracy has improved.
