We know Chicago can be an unforgiving place when it comes to sports. Take it from Steve Bartman—you don’t want to get on the Windy City’s bad side.
Wednesday it was Mitchell Trubisky’s turn to get roasted as the Bears quarterback found himself the butt of a well-executed social distancing joke. Twitter user Brett Craycraft snapped this photo from Chip Monks, a restaurant situated in the Park West neighborhood of Chicago:
Take a bow, Chip Monks. This sign checks all the boxes—topical, hilarious and bitingly accurate. That’s a mic drop if I’ve ever seen one and further evidence the Chicago faithful has grown weary of Trubisky’s continued mediocrity. The Bears inexplicably traded up for Trubisky in the 2017 NFL Draft (future MVP Patrick Mahomes and Texans star Deshaun Watson were both available at that juncture) and have been paying the price ever since. Trubisky’s anemic 6.1 yards per attempt last season ranked dead-last among qualified signal-callers, prompting Chicago to bring in competition this offseason. The Bears acquired former Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles from Jacksonville last month and GM Ryan Pace has made clear the underachieving Trubisky will have to earn his spot in training camp this summer.
There’s been plenty of shade to go around lately. The Panthers ribbed the Falcons on social media Wednesday, clowning their division rival by comparing the team’s new threads to the uniforms worn in Adam Sandler’s Longest Yard reboot. It’s doubtful anyone will ever top the shade a Philadelphia fan threw at Nelson Agholor after rescuing babies from a burning building last year, but the Trubisky crack still warrants inclusion in the trolling Hall of Fame.
