Here’s What Nick Foles Did After Mitchell Trubisky Was Announced as Chicago Bears Starter

September 8, 2020 3:43 am

Nick Foles arrived in Chicago from Jacksonville Jaguars in one of the surprise trades this summer. The former Arizona College graduate was drafted by Philadelphia Eagles in 2012. Since then, he has spent time with St Louis Rams (Now Los Angeles Rams) and Kansas City Chiefs before returning to Philadelphia in 2017.

Foles famously led the Eagles to the Super Bowl LII title. But has never reached those heights again. He joined Chicago Bears in the 2020 offseason. He was brought in to challenge youngster Mitchell Trubisky for a starting spot this season.

However, Head Coach Matt Nagy confirmed that Trubisky will now be the first-choice quarterback heading into Week One.

Nick Foles reacts to Mitchell Trubisky’s anointment as starting quarterback

Chicago Bears start the season as outside contenders to challenge for the NFC North title. Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings start as favorites once again. Detroit Lions are the underdogs alongside the Bears.

Trubisky’s anointment as the first-choice quarterback will come as a welcome surprise to Bears fans. Foles will now serve as the backup quarterback. This was Foles’ immediate reaction when Nagy broke the news to him as reported by JJ Stankevitz.

Talk about team spirit!

The Bears start their season with a tough game against Detroit Lions on September 13, 2020. Mitchell Trubisky will be hoping to repay the faith shown in him by coach Matt Nagy.

Meanwhile, Nick Foles will also be keeping a close eye on how things pan out for Trubisky this year. In the event of an injury or lack of consistent displays in relation to Trubisky, Foles will be the first person that Nagy turns to. Bears players, Khalil Mack, David Montgomery, and Allen Robinson will be under pressure to perform when the season starts this week.
