Rich and Dan discuss their 10-chapter examination of why the Bears drafted Mitch Trubisky over Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson. In a supplement to the project, the guys provide important context and analysis of what they reported about the draft decisions and developmental processes for all three quarterbacks. The objective is to understand how the Bears got to this point with Trubisky in order to establish where they’re headed. They shine a light on general manager Ryan Pace’s role in leading the Bears to Trubisky and potential shortcomings in how the Bears evaluated Watson. They look at the infrastructure the Chiefs had in place to develop Mahomes, as opposed to the Bears’ situation for Trubisky. They answer audience questions at the end of the show, including some about Pace and Trubisky’s future and what role race played in the evaluation of all three quarterbacks.
