Ditka: 'Clear cut' Trubisky should be Bears starter

(TMZ.com) - If Mitch Trubisky isn't the Chicago Bears starting QB in Week 1, "You've got problems" -- so says Bears legend Mike Ditka.

To say Da Coach was impressed with the rookie's preseason debut Thursday night is a gross understatement. Ditka believes it's TRUB OR CONSEQUENCES!

"What I saw out of Trubisky for a rookie in his first game I thought was outstanding," Ditka said.

Trubisky, the second pick in the NFL draft, went 18-25 for 166 yards and a touchdown after replacing starting quarterback Mike Glennon who went 2-8 for 20 yards and an interception.

Ditka thinks the decision is obvious and says Trubisky made a better first impression than guys like Tom Brady and Fran Tarkenton.

"It's clear cut he should be your starter," Ditka said
