Nick Foles not ruled out as Bears starting quarterback in 2021 GM Ryan Pace says he showed leadership Full-time JobJun 21st, 2023 at 09:11 Marketing & Communication Hastings 60 views
The have an uncertain future at quarterback, even with still on their roster and under contract for 2021. Foles appeared to be an afterthought in Chicago after being benched in favor of late last season, but the Bears apparently aren't ready to move on from the former Super Bowl MVP just yet.Bears general manager Ryan Pace give an interesting vote of confidence in Foles at his Walt Weiss Jersey end-of-season news conference, which seemed to signify that Chicago will give Foles at least an opportunity to win the starting job again."I respect the way he handled a lot of adversity this year, not just for himself in the quarterback room," Pace said, . "He was a leader in the room as a starter or as a backup. And ...when he was playing, there were some things Andrew Triggs Jersey that, in fairne s to him, the offensive line was a little unsettled and the run game wasn't quite where we wanted it to be." As for Trubisky, he'll be a free agent on March 17, and signs point to him not returning to Chicago. The Bears had more problems on offense than just the play of their quarterbacks, however. Foles certainly didn't benefit from a Bears offensive line that allowed 18 Kendall Graveman Jersey sacks in his seven starts, a huge factor in the quarterback throwing just seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in those starts. The Bears' running game wasn't very good either, averaging just 52.6 rushing yards per game in those starts -- dead last in the league. The 2.79 yards per carry average was also last in Jed Lowrie Jersey the league and the two rushing touchdowns tied for last.Foles completed 65.96% of his pa ses for 1,664 yards with seven touchdowns to seven interceptions and recorded a 79.6 pa ser rating in those seven starts, despite no running game and offensive line to aid him. The end result was Foles averaging 40.3 attempts per game, not a recipe for succe s (the Bears went 2-5 in his starts). With Foles due $6.667 million and the Bears having to eat $10.33 million if they cut him, there is no reason why Chicago won't bring Foles back for the 2021 season at this point. Perhaps the Bears will find a trade partner to take on the final Dave Henderson Jersey two years of Foles' contract, but he'll have an opportunity to reclaim the starting job in 2021 -- with an improved offensive line and resurgent by his side.
