5 reasons Justin Fields is perfect for Matt Nagy
1. Perfect QB room
Andy Dalton signed with the Chicago Bears knowing that they could draft a quarterback. He is not going to panic or cause a scene. In fact, there is a good chance that given his salary and situation, he is perfect for Justin Fields. He is going to compete and is not going to back down from Fields. However, at the same time, he knows his job and that next year, he is likely to go somewhere else.
It would help him for teams to know he improve the QB room and left the room in better shape. He is going to push Fields and give the guidance he needs. It also helps that Andy Dalton knows the offense from Bill Lazor. It may give Dalton the head up for week one, but it also gives Fields a veteran who can show him the offense with ease.
That does not even get into Nick Foles and John DeFilippo. The duo won a Super Bowl together. Sure, as a QB coach and a backup, but hello, now they are back in roles where they could excel. Foles could still get traded, but as a human, there is not much better to bring to the QB room than Foles.
Between Lazor, DeFilippo, and Nagy, they have years of experience with talented QBs. Between Andy Dalton and Nick Foles, they have players who have been up and down around the NFL. This is not the duo that wins a Super Bowl, but as a whole, this is an excellent room to drop a QB into.
Overall, the drafting of Justin Fields has to be looked at as a plus.
