Mitchell Trubisky was considered the top quarterback in this year's draft class, but no one was higher on him than the Chicago Bears. His pocket presence was there from the start, and he got rid of the ball quickly and accurately, even while on the move.

Of major concern now is how Glennon and the first-team offense respond this week in practice and next week in Arizona. So let's start with Glennon. But that was all assuming Glennon plays like a viable stopgap alternative.

Their new signing, Mike Glennon did his absolute worst Thursday night to make them rethink that. With starter Jordan Howard getting only one series and Jeremy Langford yet to see the field this preseason, it is clear Cohen hasn't just made the team, he will dress on Sundays, and some portion of the Bears' offense will go through him. He knows it's only a matter of time until Trubisky takes over.

On Thursday, Glennon and the Bears got their preseason underway against the Broncos and the first drive went anything but the way Chicago would have liked. The No. 2 overall pick's play put a target squarely on Mike Glennon's back.

Trubisky completed 304 of his 446 attempts (68.2 percent) for 3,748 yards and 30 touchdowns against just six interceptions in 2016. Trubisky had opportunity knock, and he did his best to bust through the door.

A one-year starter at North Carolina, Trubisky was an All-Ohio selection and the 2012 Ohio Mr. Football Award victor after a standout career at Mentor High School. With the Bears' quarterback luck, both Glennon declaring that this year was his and them buying all into it was bound to blow up in their faces.

Fantasy Impact It was an encouraging performance for Trubisky, who looked calm and accurate against the Broncos.

The Bears have been searching for a franchise quarterback since Sid Luckman in the 1940s.

"Just play great situational football, control the game", Trubisky said. Granted, the Chicago Bears' secondary blew coverage on the play, but Sloter gave McKenzie a chance to score. Should Trubisky falter, Sanchez will likely take over traditional backup duties while still offering plenty of aid to the rookie. With the experience jabs out of the way, expect Trubisky and Glennon to battle it out in one of the most exciting battles of the summer come the 2018 season.
