Bears Preview: Mitch Trubisky > Drew Brees

It was pretty simple to convince everyone that Mitch was already a better quarterback than Cam Newton. Their performances last Sunday only validated what I already knew. It might be a little more difficult to make an argument for Mitch already being better than Drew Brees, but I still don’t expect to think too hard.

Here’s a rather obvious fact: 10 > 9. Not only in total value but what the numbers actually represent. The number 9, similar to the number 1, is a selfish number. It always produces itself:

2 x 9 = 18 1+8 = 9
3 x 9 = 27 2+7 = 9
4 x 9 = 36 3+6 = 9
5 x 9 = 45 4+5 = 9
6 x 9 = 54 5+4 = 9
7 x 9 = 63 6 +3 = 9
8 x 9 = 72 7 +2 = 9
and so on forever

You have to ask if this is why one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time only has one Super Bowl win. Meanwhile, our boy wears the number 10, which is considered the number of perfection. It’s the highest score possible in Olympic competition and the highest score you can give a girl or guy based on their looks. The number was also considered holy by the Pythagoreans, who were known for their music and harmony. In other words, Mitch simply knows how to make the Bears work best together.

Though that history lesson should be enough to confirm Mitch’s dominance over Brees, I’ll pull some sabermetrics for those who can’t rely on their eyes like us scouts can. The NFL is all about big plays. The other team can be running the ball down your throat and dominating the time of possession, but if you’re able to hit that big play it cancels everything out. Trubisky’s long play is 70 yards, a beautiful toss to Tarik Cohen last week. Guess who only has a long play of 52 yards…Drew Brees. Case closed. Trubisky > Brees.
