Idiots will rip him

Intelligent fans will realize that he had to do something in case

1. They didn't get Trubisky
2. Trubisky is not ready to play

It really doesn't matter how he plays.

I disagree. While certainly not hamstringing the franchise for half a decade, paying 18 million for a guy who might not even be able to let your franchise QB sit on the bench for several games (if not a whole season) and still keep the team competitive is bad. Pace could have found other crap QB's for 10 million a year and had the cap space to add another decent starter or quality depth elsewhere.

Limiting bad talent decisions doesn't get to you the Super Bowl nearly as fast as making good talent per cap decisions.

Hopefully, Trubisky's lightning like development will make Glennon a mute issue.


They had no idea they would land a talented rookie when they signed him. Glennon by his own admission wasn't thinking about needing to keep the 2nd overall pick on the bench.

Brian Hoyer got 10 milloon guaranteed, so the idea of a cheap stop gap does t really exist, unless you want to guarantee you lose every game and rush the rooms with sanchez.

If he plays no better than a 10 million dollar Hoyer than he by definition is a poor deal. If they had no idea they would land a talented rookie then he was supposed to be 'the guy' and it's even a worse decision.

Now all this is based on him not looking good in camp and Trubisky working hard so not exactly something I'd bet the house on. Also, he was likely their best shot to upgrade so he was kind of the only box of cereal on the shelve, but it's looking like the cereal was bad and over priced to boot.

The damage was limited to 1 season and Pace moved aggressively to get his guy, but it is looking like a bad deal. Not a team crushing bad deal, but a bad deal. If Trubisky is the guy then Pace will still grade out to an 'A' this off-season.
