Mitch Trubisky is a Pro Bowler. The #Bears QB will replace Jared Goff at the all-star game.

Last time Bears had a pro bowl QB? 32 years ago.

Even though it's like a halfhearted pro-bowl appearance, I'm perfectly fine with that.

You can spin it however you like. Good or bad. The fact is, no one can take it away from him, and in 10 years the stat sheet will just say the number of Pro Bowls he attended, not whether or not he was the 4th alternate.

It does kind of reveal the level of player commitment to that game though...

He can check that one off his bucket list now.

Any chance he can skip this game? I appreciate the selection, but its an unnecessary risk.

This is probably a stupid post...but, nothing new here lol...

I have always thought Mitch lacked confidence, like you could just see it in his face. Sure, he said the right things and all, but he just had that "kinda scared" look to me. Look at Mahomes/Watson, they just seemed like they belonged, even cocky about it. With Mitch it all felt forced in some way, not a natural "I belong here and I'm going to kick your ass" type of confidence.

So.......short point made long.....I think this Pro Bowl thing might actually help Mitch. Giving him this honor and going out and socializing with the best in the game at the Pro Bowl might really cement in his own mind that he belongs, that he can be a great player, and shake off whatever doubts might have been lurking in the back of his brain.

Agreed. I want him to "twist his ankle" in practice so he doesn't suit up for the game. I worry that people are going to t-off on him and he won't have the bears oline to protect him
