    How about if he's smart enough to touch a guy on the ground to end a play? It's not like he's the brains of the offense.

    Before draft because of bear's play style I said he'd be trubisky 2.0 but he's shown more promise than I thought he would already with bears I think he keeps progressing and bears really start giving some teams headaches next yr

    Justin Fields is a running threat. Reminds me of Michael Vick a bit.

    Meatheads that don't know how to watch a game think otherwise. No way Wilson or Lance should have gone ahead of him. And I'd take him over Lawrence too, although I think he can be good also.
    No disrespect... but your comments definitely sound like a Chicago Homer? Fields has legs... and that's about it. His decision making is Ryan Leaf material. He's taken some big hits already this year... it's going to wear on him. He's already losing confidence... he seems like a player that mopes at things rather quickly. Again, if he thought NFL/Chicago was going to be an OHIO STATE cake walk... he's sorely mistaken.

    I am a Chicago Homer. And I'm also right about Justin Fields, and you're wrong. Yeah, running QB's take big hits, goes with the territory. Always a risk. Everything else you say is just flat out wrong. I doubt he thought the NFL would be a cakewalk. Time will tell. Once he gets acclimated, getting Chase Claypool should help. Next season will be the real test. No excuses. We should know by the end of next season.

    The bears are awful. It's not hard to put up stats when you're team is going no where.

    Contact us in 3 years if Fields is in the NFC championship, otherwise, nothing matters.

    Always find it so funny when fans get so excited about their players in reg season games.

    Same as those nerds on espn, living day to day and week to week.

    Big picture or bust.

    No QB will make the conference championship without a good team and Fields doesn't have much to work with. He's the only reason they came close to beating Miami.

    They are looking at the big picture. They have 8 picks in the draft and will be $120 mil under the cap.

    Yeah, I mean if you have a nice haul of draft picks and a lot of money/cap to spend, to go along with a talented cheap young QB, you can overhaul a team quite fast during an offseason. Not an easy feat to pull off, but not impossible either. We'll see if the new Bears regime can do it. Bears may suddenly be a destination team for free agents.
