Chicago Tribune Has Ridiculous Mitchell Trubisky Take Based on Freaking Training Camp Stats

Everyone knows that preseason stats and training camp performances for solidified starters mean absolutely nothing. The four weeks that come before opening kickoff are for the backups to prove their worth and others fighting for a roster spot.

Apparently the Chicago Tribune has yet to receive that memo.

Dan Wiederer of the Tribune used the dated "eye test" to determine Chicago Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is not ready for the season.

Trubisky only played in one series during the Bears' first preseason game. He never even threw a pass! He handed the ball off three times before he sat on the bench for the rest of the game.

We saw the guy take big strides last season. He's working his way up the ranks. Let's wait until he starts performing in the regular season to pass any judgement. There's no reason for the Bears to risk injuring their starting quarterback just to get him game action.

It's irrational to jump to the conclusion based on the limited action that Trubisky has seen throughout training camp. He still has a few weeks to get himself game ready, which gives him time to find the range with his throws.

Let's also not forget he's going up against the best defense in the NFL during training camp and was a missed field goal away from winning his first career playoff game last season.

Pump the brakes, folks.
