The Chicago Bears are being mocked by the rest of the NFL for drafting Mitch Trubisky over Deshaun Watson. If you have been following me for while, then you already know what my predraft rankings were in 2017. Deshaun Watson was the top quarterback on my board. I had Mitch Trubisky was graded out as a 6th round prospect. Yes, a 6th round prospect. It was tough to find anything to like about him. Just watching him throw the ball at the combine was painful.
The Chicago Bears are wasting the best defense in football because Mitch Trubisky isn’t just worse than Deshaun Watson. Mitch Trubisky is a total bust (just like I thought he would be) and likely will be out of the league before you know it. Ryan Pace should lose his job for drafting Trubisky with the 2nd overall pick in
Deshaun Watson is the man. Dabo Sweeney called him Michael Jordan at Clemson. You were a fool if you didn’t listen. I’m not the only one that told you that Mitch Trubisky was far inferior compared to Deshaun Watson. The former Clemson signal caller had a very interesting quote that needs to be revisited. It’s clear, the Bears are living with the consequences of passing on Deshaun Watson.
Watson had these comments prior to the 2017 NFL Draft:
“You’re gonna have to live with the consequences that come with it. That’s how I see it,” Watson said. “I try to stay in my lane. I try not to take the path. I respect Mitch and what he’s done and all the hype he’s getting, but at the same time, my result speaks for itself. I feel like I’ve accomplished everything that I could. I guess if that’s who they’re gonna roll with, so be it.”
This was so easy. Deshaun Watson went 28-2 his last two years at Clemson. He went to two national championships. Won one and lost one. Watson was a winner in every sense of the word. He also had 38 collegiate starts and proved he was a bonafide stud. Mitch Trubisky had 13 career starts. He was never considered a great passer. He couldn’t even beat out Marquise Williams at UNC who never got drafted in the NFL. The fact that Trubisky was drafted this high never made any sense.
The Chicago Bears franchise is suffering those consequences. With Deshaun Watson and this defense, the Bears are a Super Bowl team. Instead, they’re a team that’s totally lost. They have no quarterback, and not
