Justin Fields should start Week 1 for the Chicago Bears

Now, this comes with some additional information needed, but Justin Fields should be the starter immediately. Fields, in my eyes, has all the tools to be an immediate starter in the NFL and doesn’t have that many flaws to his game that could give him trouble in the NFL.

Fields isn’t Trubisky. There should be no comparison. Fields has the ability to read a defense and worked in an NFL-style offense at Ohio State that required him to make pre-snap reads and go through his progressions. He has a nice deep ball, great footwork, and is incredibly smart displaying impressive attention to detail.

Now, if Fields comes into training camp and those things don’t pop right away, that is fine. Then, the Bears can sit Fields until they see he is ready to take over. Andy Dalton is more than capable of running an NFL offense as he has since 2011. The Bears offense appears to be loaded now and just needs someone to distribute the ball effectively and read a defense well until Fields is ready.

However, if Fields comes to camp showing all the traits he showed in college and absolutely impresses the Bears’ coaching staff, there is no doubt in my mind he should be the immediate starter. With his incredible arm and dual-threat capability, he will strike fear in opposing defenses and allow the Bears to become an elite offense.
