The Bears will see if they can go 2-0 with Chase Daniel as their starting quarterback.

Mitchell Trubisky has been listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Giants, and Daniel is poised to make his second consecutive start.

That wasn’t a problem for the Bears on Thanksgiving, as they beat the Lions with Daniel at the helm and Trubisky on the sideline in street clothes. Beating the Giants should be doable for the Daniel-led Bears as well.

Also doubtful for the Bears are running back Benny Cunningham and defensive back Sherrick McManis. The Bears have two defensive tackles, Akiem Hicks and Bilal Nichols, listed as questionable.

  1. This game scares me a bit. I understand being overprotective with a 330+ man (360 according to Goldman) who strained his achilles. I don’t understand sitting your starting QB because of shoulder pain when the reports from last week were that he would have started if the game were on Sunday.

    If Trubisky isn’t going to make the injury worse, he should play. The Vikings aren’t that far back, and the Saints aren’t that far in front.

  2. Trubisky got hurt on an illegal hit. He’s been pretty good at avoiding contact, considering how much he runs.

  3. I don’t like him being benched, but if it helps down the playoff stretch then you have to trust the coaching staff. I just hope it doesn’t get him to rusty

  4. Better to have Mitch ready for the Rams. That will be a true gut check for this team. It will be interesting how the Bears D play Barkley & OBJ. Not overlooking the Giants, they’ll come to play.

    If Trubisky didn’t slide like Paul Blart Mall Cop, we wouldn’t be in this predicament.

    Dude is fast, but not very agile
    If he keeps running, he will eventually land on IR! It’s the nature of today’s game. These lineman are just too fast and too big and the league can only protect QB’s so much! Learn to play primarily from the pocket or risk almost certain serious injury. Can you say Michael Vick? How about RG3?
