Tarik Cohen doesn’t want to see the Chicago Bears fans boo Mitchell Trubisky, who is returning today to face his former team. Trusbisky will be starting the game for the Buffalo Bills but prior to joining the Bills, he had an up and down four seasons with the Bears.
The Bears drafted Trubisky second overall in 2017 hoping that the former University of North Carolina quarterback could be the franchise’s answer at quarterback. While the Chicago Bears have had great success at times in their franchise, they have never really had that superstar quarterback.
However, the Bears really liked Trubisky leading up to the NFL Draft and were even willing to trade two third round picks and a fourth round pick to move up one spot to select the quarterback. This only added to the pressure put on Trubisky and he showed some promise early in his career, especially during his second season in the league.
In 2018, Trubisky would throw for 3,223 passing yards with 24 passing touchdowns, 12 interceptions with three touchdowns on the ground. He would also be named to the Pro Bowl that season.
However, the final two seasons were largely considered disappointments and the Bears elected to have Trubisky leave in free agency this offseason and not re-sign him.
Tarik Cohen gives advice to Bears fans when they play the Buffalo Bills
On Saturday, Trubisky is returning to Chicago to face his former team and current Bears’ running back Tarik Cohen took to Twitter to give some advice to Bears’ fans.
Cohen was drafted by the Bears the same year as Mitchell Trubisky and spent the past four seasons with him. While this game is only a preseason game, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Bears fans try to boo the Buffalo Bills quarterback because they do have strong feelings about the quarterback.
The fanbase has desperately been waiting for that franchise quarterback and Trusbisky is viewed to be in the same line of disappointments at the position joining Rex Grossman, Cade McNown, and Jim Harbaugh as quarterbacks drafted in the first round by the Bears.
While it is only a preseason game, this game has a little more meaning than most. Hopefully fans boo Mitchell Trubisky for making good plays for the Buffalo Bills and not for the past four years with the Chicago Bears.
