Big test ahead for Broncos QBs in preseason opener at Chicago

But you have to believe Mike Glennon and the starting offense needs to be better when the Bears are back on the field August 19 in Arizona to prevent a full-scale public revolt by fans clamoring for No. 2 draft pick Mitch Trubisky to be the starter September 10 against the Falcons. Whether or not he's named the starter, Trubisky looked great in his first attempt at running an National Football League offence, and he's only going to get more comfortable under center.

Ditka thinks the decision is obvious and says Trubisky made a better first impression than guys like Tom Brady and Fran Tarkenton.

After what might have been his worst NFL game ever, albeit a brief one - he went 2-for-8 for 20 yards and the interception - Glennon was asked by an NFL Network reporter if he planned to turn his phone off.

Mike Glennon was absolutely atrocious in his preseason opener for the Chicago Bears. The Broncos practice with the 49ers two days next week in advance of their game in which Lynch will start. After spoon-feeding him short throws to get his confidence up the Bears let him play more. Mitch Trubisky might have created a quarterback controversy in Chicago, and at the expense of an in-state rival's alumnus.

After Siemian and Lynch managed just three points on seven combined drives, Sloter led two long TD drives in the fourth quarter.

The 21-year-old, a fine athlete with experience of playing a left-sided wing-back, would work well on the left of a four or five-man midfield, with DeAndre Yedlin on the other side.

Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Mitchell Trubisky had as good of a start to his 2017 preseason as any first-round pick with the weight of a city on his back could hope for.

That may still happen - Glennon is guaranteed $16 million this season - but Trubisky's performance against Denver (18-of-25 for 166 yards and one touchdown) ratchets up the pressure on Glennon, who had a forgettable preseason debut. Sloter responded by throwing a 47-yard bomb to rookie receiver Isaiah McKenzie for a game-tying touchdown.

Veteran Mark Sanchez, Chicago's No. 2 quarterback, played sparingly in the second quarter, completing 1 of 4 pass attempts for 4 yards.

The touchdown drive covered 50 yards in just six plays and took 1:42 off the clock. "But Mike Glennon is our starting quarterback and I don't think now is the time to deal in hypotheticals going forward". "And it brings us closer so we can approach it and get better as a group".

Pace and coach John Fox aren't going to bury their heads in the sand at North Avenue Beach.
