Twitter reacts to rumor that Eli Manning met with Bears


Just about every available free-agent quarterback who's scheduled to hit the open market later this month has been mentioned as a potential option for the Chicago Bears as they look to add competition for Mitch Trubisky in 2020.

One of the rare quarterbacks who hasn't been discussed as a fit for Chicago is former New York Giant, Eli Manning, who announced his retirement from the NFL earlier this offseason.

Then came Wednesday night's Twitter firestorm and a series of tweets that alleged Manning was in Chicago dining with the Bears. That rumor has since been debunked, but it poses an interesting question: Would Bears fans be happy with Manning as the candidate to compete with Trubisky this season?

The reactions on Twitter present a pretty obvious answer:
