Mitch Trubisky definitely opened some eyes in his NFL debut.
Before getting lost in hyperbole, we will concede that it is Week 1 of the preseason and most of his damage was done against the Broncos' second and third units. Nonetheless, Mitch-a-palooza was in full swing at Soldier Field.
The rookie completed 18 of his 25 passes for one score and 166 yards, leading to high praise around the league.
Michael Vick, who is no stranger to strong QB play, summed it up in elegant fashion:
Wow @Mtrubisky10 .— Mike Vick (@MikeVick) August 11, 2017
Being a dominant runner back in his day, Vick was probably dazzled by Trubisky's three carries for 38 yards.
Fellow North Carolina graduate and current Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron came away impressed as well:

Bears legend Brian Urlacher is all in on the Trubisky Parade, which he volunteered to lead after the 22-year-old's dominant outing:

Even LeBron James chimed in, although mostly because his buddy Victor Cruz was the recipient of Trubisky's TD pass:
The QB debate is buzzing, but Colin Cowherd, the overreaction oligarch, may want to pump the brakes a bit:
Mitchell Trubisky MVP. You better get used to saying that.— Colin Cowherd (@ColinCowherd) August 11, 2017
The Trubisky hype is real.
