The Bears host the Bills in a preseason game on Saturday in Chicago, and that means Bills quarterback Mitchell Trubisky will play in front of the same fans who cheered him at times and booed him at others for four years. Bears running back Tarik Cohen hopes Bears fans will cheer when Trubisky takes the field.

Cohen wrote on Twitter that he does not approve of booing his former teammate.

“If you boo Mitch tomorrow you a lame and a weirdo,” Cohen wrote.

Cohen’s preferences aside, Trubisky will undoubtedly get plenty of boos from the crowd at Soldier Field on Saturday. Trubisky had a frustrating four-year tenure in Chicago, and Bears fans will take out their frustrations the first time Trubisky walks onto the field.

I don’t understand all the hate towards Mitch. H didn’t do THAT bad a job, IMO. And yes – Tarik’s right. The idiots who would boo Mitch are lame! Get behind the boys and BEAR DOWN!

Tarik is correct. Mitch is a young kid trying to carve out a career in a tough tough profession. He’s got a chance for a new start — wishing the best for him. In Chicago, the results were not there, but he showed himself to be a tough kid and a hard worker. That’s everything you can ask for.

Trubisky is content to be a career backup in this league. It’s a shame because I think he had a shot of competing for a starting job. He would have had a shot to compete for a starting job in places like Carolina, New Orleans, Pittsburgh.

Freedom of speech works both ways. Let them boo. Trubisky has moved on. They should too.

I agree with Cohen. It wasn’t Trubisky’s fault that Pace is an idiot who passed on 2 franchise quarterbacks to draft him.

Or extremely loyal to the franchise and not individual players.

I see no reason to boo him as Mitch Trubisky the former Bears QB, only to boo him to the extent you boo any opposing QB. Unless you’re in MN when home team fans can boo the team’s present starting QB as well as the opposing one.

Don’t have time to Boo Trubisky, I’ll be cheering Fields!

Maybe they should boo the coach who’s offensive scheme made a former MVP QB look helpless last year.

Booing fans money spend the same.

Mitxh Mitch Mitch, you learned nothing apparently in Chicago. You’re very lucky you didn’t start in Philly talking like this. Ah well, man torpedoes legacy he never had. News at 11.

Trubiski was a better QB than the Bears management were managers.

We’ve seen much, much worse QBs than Mitch come through the Bears. I’m glad we moved on from him, as we should, but there’s no reason for the hate. It’s the team who misevaluated him.

If you are going to boo Mitch you should equally be booing the front office who not only drafted him ahead of Mahomes but got fleeced by the 9’ers in trading up one spot to get him. The expectations on him were that of a franchise qb for which this team has NEVER had unless you want to count Sid Luckman in the 1940’s! He fell way short of that, if the fans want to boo him for that they have every right to do so.

Who cares what Cohen says he’s a gadget guy who should only touch the ball two or three times a game. Mitch was not a good QB which is why the moved on from him. If they want to boo they can boo.

another case where a good defence had to carry a first round bust quarterback for four years;

the good thing is, if all the fans in Soldier Field stand far apart as Trubisky will demonstrate with his passes (oddly enough, the same 6-12 feet doctors recommend) everyone will be COVID-safe;

Actually, they probably spend more due to their lack of self control and low self esteem.

Bears vs Bills: 6 things to watch for

Windy City Gridiron 20 August, 2021 - 03:00pm

The Bears went three and out twice during Dalton’s Chicago debut under center last week against the Dolphins, so him and the first stringers looking like a competent unit would be nice to see. I’ve been adamant that this is a big year for Matt Nagy as a play caller, and while it’s just preseason, I think Nagy could really use some success and that starts with Dalton executing.

The interior of the Bears offensive line has the potential be be really good, so I’ll be watching to see how they work together, how Mustipher fares against a pretty good group of Buffalo defensive tackles, and how Daniels has grown from last season.

I don’t care if it is Fields and a bunch of Bears backups facing off against the Bills third team defense, because every rep the Bears rookie takes is important for him. The sexy plays would be great to see, but if he’s making the smart reads and commanding the offense, that’s a win in my book.

But I’d still like him to bring some explosiveness on Saturday.

With one rookie offensive lineman sidelined indefinitely, I may as well focus or the other. Nagy said Borom would be in the mix at left tackle, but which ever side he lines up on I’ll be paying close attention to his quickness to see if he has the athleticism to wall off edge rushers.

Besides Jaylon Johnson at their number one corner, the Bears don’t have a cornerback spot on the roster set. Kindle Vildor, Desmond Trufant, and Artie Burns all seem to be in the mix to start outside, and Duke Shelley, Vildor, Burns, Marqui Christian, et. al. are all vying for the slot corner job.

I think some clarity is needed in the next week.

I was a Trubisky fan for four years, and while things didn't work out for him in Chicago, I would like to see him figure things out and avoid a Christian Ponder-like career. I mentioned this on Twitter, but if I were in attendance at Soldier Field on Saturday, I’d give him some applause when he ran out for the first time, but them after that he’d get booed just like every other opposing player.

Mitchell Trubisky returns to Chicago as member of Bills, ex-teammate urges fans not to boo

Mitchell Trubisky is set to suit up for the Buffalo Bills in a preseason game against his former team, the Chicago Bears, on Saturday.

Bears running back Tarik Cohen, Trubisky’s former teammate, said he doesn’t want to hear any boos from fans at Soldier Field when his former quarterback takes the field.

Trubisky is set to back up Josh Allen for the entire 2021 season after starting his career with the Bears and later not getting a new contract after a handful of seasons in Chicago.

The former North Carolina standout was the No. 2 overall selection of the 2017 NFL Draft being chosen by the Bears. He was selected ahead of Deshaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes.

He replaced Mike Glennon during the 2017 season and was a full-time starter in 2018. Chicago’s defense was one of the best that year and Trubisky was a Pro Bowler. The team lost in the wild card round of the playoffs. He helped the Bears to the playoffs last year, but the team was bounced early as well.

In 51 games, he’s recorded 10,609 passing yards, 64 touchdown passes and 37 interceptions. He can prove to be a viable backup for Allen just in case of an injury.
