This past weekend, the Chicago Bears held one of the most highly-anticipated rookie minicamps in their illustrious history.

This was, after all, the very first time the world would see rookie quarterback Justin Fields in a Bears uniform — and it was pretty surreal.

For fans who have dealt with the tumultuous quarterback situation decade after decade, seeing the Bears go up and draft a guy like Fields presented them with hope for the future. It seemed as though, finally, the Bears had found someone special at the position.

Over the past few days, Fields was able to say and do all of the right things to continue the hype and anxiousness over his coming to Chicago.

The reviews coming in from local media have all been excellent. It was only a couple of days, and they were not even padded practices, but there was enough said and shown from Fields to give the entire city plenty to be excited about.

The coolest part may have been that Fields didn’t just give the city, fans and media reason to be excited and hopeful, but also his fellow rookies. The way he conducted himself and spoke about his teammates this weekend proved that he can be the leader this team needs going forward.

There was much to take away from rookie minicamp, and plenty can be written about Fields. But, overall, he proved a few things in particular during his first experience in navy and orange.
