ok, good post, but my read out of this data is different. First off, Foles is 5 points better on QBR in this method, so if you just wanna go by that it's Foles not Trubisky. Second, we've managed to throw away his 26 TD, 2 INT season that he had,Trubisky has never sniffed that type of sustained success ever. Third, Trubisky's combined numbers are buttressed by 2018, but his most recent work last year was abysmal, which is more relevant. Foles most recent work in this offense was in Philly, where he yet again led a playoff charge for the Eagles that fell just short - he played great. Fourth, Foles has a ring. Fifth, who says he DIDN'T win the competition? Media attendance was near zero, no preseason games, and one thing we know for sure is you can't take what Nagy says about Mitch in a presser very seriously. Sixth, back to a prior point I made...logically speaking, if you have two guys competing at about the same level, I'll take the guy who's only been working at it for 3 weeks over the guy who's heading into his 3rd YEAR. Like, 1,000 times out of 1,000. I see the reverse of your logic: if these two guys actually did compete to a stalemate, who in their right mind wouldn't assume that the 3 week guy wouldn't have lots of improvement still to come vs the Year 3 guy?
All good here, I know we don't agree. Most likely Trubisky starts for the reasons Ark posted, but I think it's a mistake. I'd go with the better, proven player and start getting him the reps he needs to get fully up to speed ASAP.
I sometimes wonder if the "pro Trubisky" crowd REALLY understand how bad he was last year? I really struggle to see how a fan of the team that wants us to win would want to see a repeat of that garbage.
