Ready or not Chicago Bears fans, the 23-year-old rookie phenom Mitch Trubisky is going to start one week from last night against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday Night Football.

The second overall pick in this year’s NFL draft is finally getting the nod after the Bears have started 1-3 with Mike Glennon at the quarterback position and I could not be more pumped.

So far the Chicago Bears offense has been nothing more than apathetic, lackluster and lacking vitality.

Trubisky coming out of North Carolina will bring the team a must needed boost not just on the offense side of the football but the defense side as well.

The fact of the matter is that the Chicago Bears have not had a pro bowl quarterback in 30 plus years going back to Jim McMahon days and this city will feed off of this adrenaline boost from Trubisky.

His confidence, accuracy and poise will make the 1-3 Bears team a lot more intriguing to watch once a week.

Trubisky lit up the preseason with a 106 completion percentage, three touchdowns and no interceptions thrown.

He has a certain glow and confidence in him that is the complete antithesis of the late Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, who only seemed to smile once in his Chicago career and that’s when he signed his contract.

The Bears have had such rich tradition and a storied franchise and this kid coming in with the second overall pick, is something the Bears have neglected for a long time.

The city is up for the grab and it’s Trubisky’s if he wants to take it; he just has to come out and give them something to be hopeful for in the future.
