Bears sticking with Glennon vs. Steelers

So much time was spent to build after Jay Cutler and the Bears best response is Mike Glennon.

AP photo Bears defensive back Marcus Cooper tries to stop Buccaneers running back Peyton Barber in the second half Sunday in Tampa, Fla. Fox said he's committed to Glennon starting, and it's far too early now to make a change. He wasn't the only reason for an ugly loss, but it's hard for any team to overcome four turnovers from its starting quarterback.

Even if the Bears were at full strength, this would be a tough spot to start a rookie quarterback.

The Chicago Bears defense couldn't catch a break - literally and figuratively - in yesterday's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and it cost them. He is the future and if he isn't starting in a few weeks then Fox is pairing his future with Glennon's, one that will feature being fired.

Presumably, a start for Trubisky would go better with more preparation.

The Bears are now 9-25 under Fox. "... I don't know if you should be fired or kept off of two things".

"We're playing arguably one of the better teams we're going to play this year at home. If you look at that last drive of the third quarter - when we had the ball and we went no-huddle - when Peyton [Barber] was in there, both teams were walking out of gas when that horn went off to end the third quarter". We didn't have a chance to account for that in our planning, so it really didn't surprise me that that was an issue. "I know it's coming".

Furthermore, the Buccaneers (reminiscent of the philosophy of the 2002 team) actively wreaked havoc defensively as they caused three turnovers (two interceptions and a fumble) including one that was returned 47 yards for a touchdown.

Week 1 of the 2017 National Football League season, the Bears looked like one of the most improved teams in the National Football League, playing the defending NFC champion Atlanta Falcons to a virtual standstill before losing in the closing seconds of the game.

Glennon threw a touchdown with less than two minutes on the clock in the game to avoid a shutout, but his 301-yard day didn't matter. "I love his growth".

After monitoring my (hostile) social media account and sampling sports talk radio for the past 24 hours, I think I've narrowed down the top five arguments people have for sticking with Glennon. He's into it on gameday. "Anytime you play in the National Football League and you turn the ball over four times in the first half, that's about what it looks like".

The defense wasn't bad, particularly against the pass, but it couldn't get off the field, letting Tampa convert eight of 15 third-down attempts, and no one is making big plays right now. "I like where he is and I like his development".

Injuries continue to pile up for the Bears. Come on. Trubisky can make plays that Glennon simply cannot. "He works tirelessly in preparation. He's into it, because you're one play away from being a starter, like any backup".

"I saw one-on-one coverage", coach Dirk Koetter said after the game.
