In a report on jersey sales across the NFL, a particular rookie quarterback had three of the top five highest-selling jerseys. Was it the top 2021 quarterback prospect and No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence? Maybe it was Trey Lance? What about Zach Wilson? Nope. It was the Chicago Bears rookie quarterback Justin Fields.

It was a tad peculiar to see Tim Tebow taking the No. 1 and 2 spot, but I guess that shows how excited the Jags – and NFL fans across the nation – are for Tim Tebow, or maybe it’s just people getting it as a joke. I’m leaning towards the latter.

While the NFL and Chicago Bears are enjoying these jersey sales for financial reasons, it really shows that Bears fans are buying into this kid before a single snap has been played.

From how it looks online, specifically social media, this is the most excited Chicago has been for a player since Michael Jordan. Now, I wasn’t alive around then and neither was Twitter, but it truly seems like this city and fans across the nation have been in a euphoric dream accompanied by a born-star quarterback.

Justin Fields has more to prove to the world if he wants recognition as the guy in Chicago, however, from all the information out about this guy, it’s hard to refute the fact that he’s going to be at bare minimum an average quarterback. Even the most critical of scouts, disregarding Chris Simm’s take on the matter, foresee a successful career in Chicago for the Ohio State superstar.

Another thought on the jersey sales is that Justin Fields beat out the GOAT Tom Brady with the Super Bowl patch to signify his seventh Super Bowl win. To me, that’s a wild idea, and it truly shows how excited the Chicago Bears are for this quarterback. For a portion of the younger Chicago Bears fans, this is the first quarterback they’ve seen get drafted with actual hype and fact to justify it. That’s a special thing for a fan base.

Lastly, I want to point out the Tim Tebow thing again. Tim Tebow, a 33-year-old journeyman quarterback turned minor league baseball player turned tight end beat out Justin Fields and the GOAT Tom Brady’s Super-Bowl-winning jersey. That’s enough proof I need to know we’re living in a simulation.
