"Our depth chart is not going to change after one game", he said, "particularly a preseason game". You have to look at a lot of different things. "I think that happens when you're in a scheme for more than a year, going into our second year".
The presumptive starter, Glennon began his Chicago career in disastrous fashion.
Though the Bears have insisted Glennon is their starter, Trubisky just might have created a quarterback controversy. Glennon's second pass harkened to the days of Jay Cutler, throwing a pick-6 on his second pass of the night.
Lynch missed a protection call on a linebacker blitzing on his sixth pass play of the game, and instead of converting a 3rd-and-2, the Broncos' offense punted.
Mike Klis of KUSA reports that Miller will not play in Denver's preseason opener.
Glennon had a rough time in his first appearance for Chicago. And then, on the third offensive series for the Bears, there was another comedy of errors as they fumbled the snap at the line. After starting the game with a sack, Siemian bounced back with an 11-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas on 3rd-and-11 to gain the first down and move the ball out of the Broncos' own red-zone.
"I wouldn't say my phone's going to be off, but if you work for NFL Network, I'm not going to be checking you out". "Like I said, we're exactly one month out [from Week 1 against the Falcons]". "And it brings us closer so we can approach it and get better as a group".
Still, even with this instance, we do have to remember that this is just a preseason game. Both Pace and coach John Fox have been clear in their public expectations of Glennon and Trubisky since the latter was drafted - much to the former's surprise - on April 27.
"No, not at all", Fox said. 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.
He completed four passes on a 50-yard drive, connecting with Victor Cruz from the 2 to cut it to 10-7 with 13 seconds left. After spoon-feeding him short throws to get his confidence up the Bears let him play more.
He ended the night 18-of-25 for 166 yards, one touchdown and a quarterback rating of 103.1. "This is a special night".
