So these are the reports coming out of Chicago today after the Bears traded up one pick to draft Mitchell Trubisky. Apparently, nobody actually planned on trying to trade up to #2 with San Fran to grab him and essentially the Bears give up a shit load of picks for nothing.
Now granted, who knows what to believe when these reports come out, but if it is actually true that Chicago gave up a 3rd, 4th & future 3rd to move to the 2nd pick when literally nobody else was trying to get there, well they’re complete morons. They did in fact negotiate against themselves to get a QB who isn’t going to start this year and is what those in the business call a “project”.
Also, John Fox didn’t even know about the plan until basically the rest of us did.
