The Bears shocked the NFL by trading up and drafting quarterback Mitch Trubisky on Thursday night.
Mike Glennon who was supposed to be the Bears starter this year is now relegated to being a place holder for the rookie. How long he holds the starting job is anyone’s guess.
Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports Glennon felt as though he had been cheated on, according to people in the know.
Pace called Glennon that night. “I’m excited about Mike’s future here,” Pace told reporters Thursday.
“I like a lot of things about Mike Glennon,” Pace said Saturday. “But one of the things I really like is the inner confidence that he has. He believes in himself, and he should because he’s a good player.
“I think any quarterback has just got to be able to brush off adversity and fight through, and that’s what Mike will do. I think we’ll handle that well.”
