There were rave reviews aplenty after the highly drafted Bears rookie quarterback’s first preseason game:
“He appeared comfortable standing in the pocket and delivering downfield or escaping pressure and creating additional opportunities with his feet.”
“… a notable buzz in the Soldier Field crowd when he took the field … and he rewarded the home fans with a touchdown pass ….”
“…there is zero reason to not play this kid and let him develop all season long.””
“may have taken two steps forward in the quarterback race”
“an impressive showing”
The quarterback’s name wasn’t Justin Fields.
It was Mitch Trubisky.
