Will Mitch Trubisky have to be saved from John Fox?

The Bears minicamps and organized team activities are over, and if you dont know the critical difference between the two exercises, Im here to help.

NFL minicamps are mandatory for players. OTAs are voluntary, and by voluntary, coaches mean, If you value your job, your salary and your ability to get free drinks around town, you will be here.

The one thing that came out of the Bears offseason workouts is the same thing that was there before any of them started: Dont play Mitch Trubisky this season. This is true not because he looked bad in shorts and helmet at any of the be-there-or-else practices, but because there is very little in it for the franchise for him to take a snap in 2017.

This is going to take willpower from ownership, general manager Ryan Pace, fans and, ahem, media members, who have been known to have an itchy trigger finger when it comes to agitating for a quarterback change. But most of all, this is going to take willpower from John Fox, who could be facing his last year as Bears coach. And if not willpower from a desperate Fox, then a pair of handcuffs to stop him from doing something that could ruin the quarterback and the franchise.
