Coach John Fox liked what he saw of the 5-foot-6, 170-pound native of Bunn.

While reading into one preseason game is, of course, unsafe and foolish, a thought here: Some key players on that side of the ball have noted that they're playing faster with a better knowledge of Fangio's system.

What about giving Sloter some second-team reps? The loss of Alshon Jeffery in free agency leaves the Bears with a lot of question marks at wide receiver, while the additions of Victor Cruz and Kendall Wright do little to offset the loss of a star. "He's one of those guys that has that speed and agility and quickness that you can't coach".

But it was also clear at times he had no idea what he was doing and was reacting rather than quarterbacking, and Bears fans will just have to find a way to remember that patience is most often a virtue.

After second-overall pick Mitch Trubisky put the Bears up 17-10, rookie quarterback Kyle Sloter - an undrafted college free agent - announced his presence with authority by throwing a 47-yard touchdown pass on his first drive as a National Football League quarterback.

Though the team has insisted Glennon is the starter, the prized rookie did his best to ramp up the debate.

His health soon also began to decline as he complained of stomach pain and high blood pressure. His supporters have said he was on a humanitarian mission to North Korea when he was detained.

"Our depth chart is not going to change after one game", he said, "particularly a preseason game".

"Ideally, right, you want to score every time, but getting the ball that deep on your first drive and moving it down the field and kicking a field goal, on the road especially - if you look at the grand scheme of things - that's probably a pretty good first drive of the game", Siemian said. "We aren't going to change a lot after one game".

The Bears have deftly avoided any quarterback controversy between Mike Glennon and Trubisky, but the rookie's successful debut, coupled with Glennon's struggles, could make that tougher moving forward.

Trubisky added: "It was important for me to not just let this moment go by and to realize how far I've come stepping onto the field and soaking it in". He also completed his first ten passes.

Despite drafting Mitchell Trubisky out of North Carolina with the No. 2 overall pick this past spring, the Chicago Bears were rolling with Mike Glennon on Thursday night for the start against the Denver Broncos in the preseason opener. That gave the Bears a 17-10 lead.

Lynch finished his game with 13 passing plays, a couple that were broken and turned into scrambles, and completed six of his nine passes for 42 yards.
