Do you ever get the feeling that public pressure has dragged the Bears, kicking and screaming, into looking for a quarterback to “push” Mitch Trubisky in 2020? That, left to their own devices, they’d not only stick with the status quo, they’d take regular naps with it? I get that feeling about 10 times a day.
And that word — push. It’s so non-confrontational. It doesn’t want to step on Mitch’s toes. It says: “Your job is secure, dear one. We simply want to help you discover the best version of yourself.’’
I thought of this Wednesday when rumors began to circulate in earnest that the 49ers, who lost to the Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV, are interested in signing Tom Brady.
