POLLING PLACE

Chicago Sun-Times - - SPORTS - WITH STEVE GREEN­BERG

Mitch Tru­bisky was benched be­fore half­time of the sea­son opener by count­less Bears fans on so­cial me­dia. That’s prob­a­bly go­ing to hap­pen when the quar­ter­back blows a third-and-one sneak on the game’s first series, adds a turnover on downs to the mix and, late in the half, ac­com­plishes pre­cisely zilch in the hurry-up of­fense. Es­pe­cially when it fol­lows three years of a lot of, shall we say, Tru­bisky-ing.

For­tu­nately, coach Matt Nagy stuck with his guy, who pulled the Bears’ fan­nies from the fire with a fourth-quar­ter come­back for a 27-23 win against the Li­ons. But you prob­a­bly knew that al­ready.

Enough about last week­end. How will Tru­bisky play Sun­day against the Gi­ants at Sol­dier Field? That ques­tion led the agenda for this week’s “Polling Place,” your home for

Chicago Sun-Times sports polls on Twit­ter.

Will he crush it? Will he get crushed? Or fall some­where in that shaky in-be­tween?

“How can it not be an­other shaky out­ing with Mitch un­til he con­sis­tently proves oth­er­wise?” @eswil­low72 com­mented.

That’s kind of what we were think­ing. And speak­ing of prov­ing oth­er­wise, any chance that’ll ever hap­pen?

“Gi­ants are not good,” @de­nali12 wrote. “Ex­pect a big game — and also A-Rob to show why he should get that con­tract!”

Wide re­ceiver Allen Robin­son cer­tainly gives Tru­bisky more of a chance to do well.

Other top­ics? We asked vot­ers to weigh in on the Big Ten’s re­ver­sal of course on fall foot­ball (hint: this isn’t SEC coun­try) and on their ex­cite­ment lev­els as the Cubs and White Sox march to the play­offs. On to the polls:
