Mitchell Trubisky's hot takes on food may offend the city of Chicago


Mitchell Trubisky is making the interview rounds this weekend as part of a promotional campaign for Gone Rogue protein snacks, appearing on radio shows across the country.

He did an interview with The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz on ESPN Radio Friday morning, where the hosts asked him nothing but food questions.

The Bears quarterback didn’t hesitate to deliver some hot takes that might rub Chicagoans the wrong way.

Some of his most controversial food opinions included:

  • Nacho cheese Doritos over cool ranch
  • Pizza rolls over bagel bites
  • Trubisky prefers his steaks medium: “You’re not allowed to put anything on a steak”
  • Water is the best drink in the history of drinks
  • It’s called “pop” not “soda”
  • A hot dog is not a sandwich, it’s a hot dog
  • The only thing he puts on his hot dogs is ketchup

And his hottest take of all was about Chicago’s beloved deep dish pizza.

“It can be overrated,” Trubisky said. “That’s why thin crust is definitely OK. You can eat more pieces of thin crust.”

Host Dan Le Batard told Trubisky that his pizza opinion would make him less popular in Chicago than former Bears kicker Cody Parkey.

“That’s not true,” Trubisky responded.

Co-host Stugotz called him "Mitchell Hall-of-Fame-sky" for that answer
