Foles didn’t practice, but Trubisky was present

Foles, Trubisky, Bray, a jugs machine... How much does it really matter?

Well, bad OL so in theory you want the most mobile guy playing. So,that would make the preferred order:

Trubisky
Bray
Jugs Machine
Foles

As an aside, Bears fans should REALLY be rooting for Washington to win the NFC East. Dallas is going to re-sign Dak. The Eagles have Wentz and just drafted Hurts in the 2nd. The Giants seem to really like Daniel Jones, and at least sound willing to give him 1 more year. So, the artists formerly known as racial slurs are the only team in the division likely to draft a QB....which is relevant because the 3 teams that don't win the division will draft ahead of the Bears in April/May.

WFT has Dallas, Steelers, Niners, Seahawks, Panthers, Eagles
DAL has WFT, Ravens, Bengals, Niners, Eagles, Giants
NYG has Bengals, Seahawks, Cards, Browns, Ravens, Cowboys
PHIL has Seahawks, Packers, Saints, Cards, Cowboys, WFT

Eagles have the edge at 3-6-1 with all the others being 3-7, but they have a brutal next 4 weeks coming up. The Giants actually have all 3 wins in the division so they have the edge if a 3-way tie, if they win Week 17. Dallas has the easiest schedule on paper, but the worst divisional record with their 2 losses being blowouts. If Washington can win the Thanksgiving game this week, they are likely to have the edge going into the Week 17 free-for-all.

I'm not convinced Trubisky's mobility even matters that much since he's typically been a little slower to process his throws than Foles historically, but it could at least to like a 50 yard fluke TD scamper which is more than Foles did last week.

Doesn’t sound like it’s injury related either

Well it doesn't really matter except that limiting Foles snaps thr rest of the way does help ensure he doesn't hit some incentives. So for that alone, let's hope Mitch plays himself into a decent backup contract with another team and nets a 6th round comp pick.

Nagy, in his conference on the bears website today, said it likely would be an injury driven decision

not that anyone can believe him nowadays

Mitch playing average-ish and leading to a decision about extending him seems like the worst possible outcome for the Bears rest of season. Given the remaining schedule, it's entirely possible he plays better than he is. No matter what happens, the Bears need to be looking into a new QB next season and just moving on from Pace, Nagy, Mitch, Foles, etc.

Costs more to lose Foles than to keep him next year. Also, if you believe the rumors it sounds like Pace is pretty safe because the McKaskey family loves him.

Are these substantial rumors at all? I thought there were rumors George is "pissed about the offense" or something

Just curious how safe is safe? "Extend him and let him hire a new HC" safe or "let him ride out his final contract year before deciding" safe?

Then Foles can come in as the back up for a guy they draft or sign.

It was one of those "sources around the league believe" that Pace's job is safe. Rumor surfaced a couple days after those same sources around the league believed that Nagy was NOT likely to be back. So, grain of salt. I see no reason to have a lame duck GM (last year of contract) and let him hire a 3rd head coach.

The only active GMs that have made 3 coaching hires are Jerry Jones, who owns the team....and John Elway, who basically owns the team, and one of his coaches had to quit because of heart issues (though he will probably get a 4th hire after this year).

If they draft a guy, Foles would serve better as a starter/mentor then a back up

I'd rather Mitch lights up the scoreboard, gets a new 1-2 year deal while dropping Foles (despite the cost) and still drafting a high-ceiling qb
