Circle it on your calendars boys. This may be the next Kurt Warner. I have inside scoop Pace will be sending an entourage of pro scouts there....

Williams was signed by the Packers as a street free agent and lasted til the final cuts.

furthermore, I am fairly sure he took them farther, and put up more PPG with the same system/coach.

Wonder if Mitch will attend to support his ex-college teammate. It was noted Williams took Mitch under his wing and mentored him.

Mitch, "He's like a brother I never had..."

I chuckled but here’s the thing...it’s not like Pace made a wild reach like a Shea McClellin or even Adam Shaheen. Mitch was regarded as the top QB by probably over 50 % of scouts and analysts. It sucks, because of who he passed up and what they’re doing, but plenty of GMs would have picked Mitch too. It’s been stale for a while now. Pace fucked up. Mahomes is superman, and Watson would have been cool too. We don’t need a thread about it every hour though.

The main rumored organization that wanted Mitch was the Browns. That should have automatically been a red flag

Were drafting the kid who just broke Mitch's records at UNC. He's a freshman I believe, Sam Howell

Uh oh


Mitch Trubisky failed to beat out an NFL washout

This was indeed one of the most worrisome aspects of Trubisky’s evaluation process back in 2016. By rights, given his obvious talent superiority, he should’ve convinced the North Carolina coaching staff that he was the rightful starting quarterback in 2015. It was obvious to everybody that Williams was not a future NFL starter. He didn’t even receive an invitation to the scouting combine after the season ended. Yet it didn’t matter. Fedora elected to keep him as their starter.

The Tarheels finished 11-3 with Williams accounting for 38 total touchdowns and over 4,000 yards of offense. The next year with almost the exact same offensive personnel in place, Trubisky managed 35 touchdowns and just over 4,000 yards of offense while going 8-5. That should’ve been a red flag. The fact that he wasn’t able to elevate the offense upon taking over as the starter.

This is another reminder of how difficult the evaluation of quarterbacks is. Teams get so in-depth with their work that sometimes they lose sight of the more obvious alarm bells. Egos get in the way. If I just get the right system in place with the right coach, this kid will become what he should be. The scout though is exactly right. College coaches get paid to win just like they do. If they don’t feel that player is good enough to do that over a clearly inferior talent, it’s a problem.

One the Bears have realized far too late.
