This FanPulse question went out to fans of all 32 NFL teams.
We didn’t pick the four choices.
Any vitriol you may have can be sent to SB Nation via Twitter here.
We were asked to choose which young quarterback we’d like to have on our favorite team for the next ten years and we were given these four choices.
- Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs
- Carson Wentz, Philadelphia Eagles
- Jared Goff, Los Angeles Rams
- Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans
While these four QBs are all talented young signal callers, I think a certain Chicago Bears’ quarterback should have been included on this list over Houston’s Watson, because this season Mitchell Trubisky has been better.
Here are the overall FanPulse results on this week’s question.
And here’s how Bears’ fans voted when given these four choices.
- Mahomes - 36%
- Wentz - 31%
- Goff - 30%
- Watson - 0%
If memory serves me, I remember a lot of Bears’ fans wanting Watson during the 2017 draft, but now he’s an afterthought.
Like I mentioned earlier, he’s also not playing as well as Trubiksy is this season.
For the record, I went with Wentz in the FanPulse question, and my reasoning is that I trust his body of work of 33 starts over Mahome’s 7 starts. Like I wrote in this article, Comparing Mitch Trubisky to other quarterbacks after 16 NFL starts, it’s too early to know what a young quarterback will be until he’s around for a while.
SB Nation realized that Watson was the odd man out of their initial list because only two fanbases had him with more than 9% of the vote. They sent out the following tweet that replaced Watson with...

But back to the FanPulse voting; the Texans, obviously, had Watson as their preferred QB with 54% of the vote, and Seahawks’ fans had him tied with Wentz behind Mahomes at 17%.
Every fanbase, except the Texans, Eagles, and Rams, had Mahomes as their top pick. Chicago’s 36% for Mahomes was the 4th lowest total among the 32 team site votes.
I am curious to see how the votes would have gone with Bears’ fans had their guy been an option, so let us know your opinion in this poll.
Which young QB would you take for the next 10 years?
