During the offseason, the Chicago Bears signed former NC State quarterback Mike Glennon to a three-year contract. On Thursday night, the Bears traded up to select former UNC quarterback Mitch(ell) Trubisky at No. 2 overall.
THEREBY SETTING UP THE GREATEST QUARTERBACK DUEL THIS LEAGUE HAS EVER SEEN. [elaborate fireworks go off]
Okay, maybe not, but it sure as hell is weird how things work out sometimes. Is this the first time quarterbacks from UNC and NC State have been on the same NFL team? I gonna go ahead and assume the answer is yes, given that neither school has ever been a football factory. And that UNC quarterbacks haven’t had much NFL longevity, historically.
Anyway, be prepared to hear all about this in July/August, folks, it’s gonna be a thing we have to hear about all the time no matter how this plays out. Of course, the Bears could end up redshirting Trubisky and making the whole discussion moot.
