Time to celebrate, Bears fans!
Get out the champagne and balloons. The Mike Glennon experiment appears to have finally come to an end.
John Fox has woken up and made the decision we've all been waiting for: rookie Mitchell Trubisky will start for the Bears in Week 5, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter.

It's about damn time.
Fans have been calling for this move since the preseason. Trubisky looked sharp this summer, but Fox decided to stick with his offseason signee in Glennon. The result? Nothing short of disappointing.
Entering Monday, the Bears hold a 1-3 record and are in last place of the NFC North. On Thursday in Green Bay, the Bears suffered an embarrassing 35-14 loss at the hands of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in front of a national TV audience.
Glennon and the offense looked awful the entire night.

Mike Glennon: Hold my beer
Now, it's time to see what Trubisky can do running the offense. He'll get his first regular season start next Monday in a battle with the Vikings.
