Chicago Bears Quarterback Controversy Brewing

To say Da Coach was impressed with the rookie's preseason debut Thursday night is a gross understatement.

Denver's Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch combined for less than 100 passing yards, but rookie Kyle Sloter rallied the Broncos after Trubisky ignited the Bears' offense.

Sloter finished the game 5-6 for 94 passing yards, one touchdown and a ideal passer rating of 158.3.

The second overall pick out of North Carolina is off to an impressive start after leading two scoring drives in his National Football League debut against the Denver Broncos Thursday night. The Broncos do have a very strong defense led\ by sack machine Von Miller, which once again will help keep them in nearly any football game.

On the first drive, Bears quarterback Mike Glennon was picked off by Chris Harris Jr. who took it the distance to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead just minutes into the game.

The bears punted on their second possession. He finished the game completing 18 of 25 passes for 166 yards and a touchdown, adding 38 yards on three carries. There are three more pre-season games, plenty of time for Glennon to adjust and get back on track in time for the regular season.

Trump threatens to rain 'fire and fury' on North Korea
Asked about the report Tuesday morning on Fox, Nikki Haley , the USA ambassador to the United Nations , said she couldn't comment. The president said Kim Jong-un would be met with "fire and fury" should he continued to threaten America with a missile attack.

"Our depth chart is not going to change after one game", coach John Fox told reporters Thursday (via ESPN).

Meanwhile, Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looked more like a franchise quarterback as he led Chicago to a touchdown on his first drive before the half and then another touchdown scoring drive on his first drive of the second half making it 14-10. He didn't have to put too much thought into it; just go out and make plays.

Veteran Mark Sanchez, Chicago's No. 2 quarterback, played sparingly in the second quarter, completing 1 of 4 pass attempts for 4 yards. Unfortunately, it was an eight-play drive that went 31 yards and stalled at Chicago's 44-yard line - the only time Lynch crossed into the Bears territory.

During his third and fourth series, Lynch began throwing the short passes to Latimer and developed somewhat of a rhythm - totaling three first downs and 50 total offensive yards.

While reading into one preseason game is, of course, risky and foolish, a thought here: Some key players on that side of the ball have noted that they're playing faster with a better knowledge of Fangio's system. It made fans in Chicago wish for the good ol' days of Jay Cutler, who's smokin' and laughin' - all the way to the bank - in Miami.
