Even though it took Matt Nagy a few weeks to pull the trigger and bench Mitch Trubisky in favor of Nick Foles, the move was anything but a surprise. Foles hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since taking over the starting gig, but he has won games and seems to have the support of his teammates.
It’s easy to see why when you listen to his postgame comments following the win over the Panthers. That’s just what the Bears need, a QB who they can trust and who radiates a sense of confidence.
Foles talked about the value of “winning ugly” while acknowledging there’s a lot of room for improvement. As maddeningly obvious as that is at times, it’s also exciting when you realize that they’re 5-1 in spite of all the warts.
“As a team, we’re winning these games and I think that’s what’s important,” said Foles.
Indeed it is.
