Chicago Bears: Justin Fields commits to Packers rivalry
Ever since the night of April 29, 2021, around approximately 8:44 pm CST, Chicago Bears fans haven’t felt the same. Days before the 2021 NFL Draft, there was an over-saturated rain cloud above the Monsters of the Midway, as the future did not look too great.
“Commit to the rebuild,” exclaimed some fans.
“Trade up for (insert quarterback here),” exclaimed other fans.
There were a handful of choices for the Chicago Bears to make at No. 20, however, as is engraved in my memory for years down the road, Carlos Nelson announces that the Chicago Bears have selected Ohio State quarterback, Justin Fields.
"“In the 2021 NFL Draft, the –MY– Chicago Bears select, Justin Fields…”"
Ever since those words left Mr. Nelson’s mouth, Chicago erupted.
Each day, week, or month that seems to go by, the more excitement that grows for the up-and-coming Chicago Bears quarterback.
One day, he looks to be making great reads during practice, the next day it’s released that he’s three of the top-five jersey sales among the NFL, and now, potentially the most exciting thing that Bears fans have heard thus far.
Justin Fields already all-in on Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers Rivalry
Justin Fields has already proven his commitment to the Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers rivalry.
Now, this doesn’t completely surprise me, as he’s been in a culture of rivalry during his time at Ohio State. Being in a rivalry is something he’s already been a part of, and being in the spotlight is nothing new to him either.
That makes him even easier to root for as Chicago Bears fans, as the Bears have been on the losing end of that rivalry for the majority of recent years.
However, the question marks arising within the Green Bay Packers organization, maybe that could be the changing of times in the NFC North.
Another thing to bring up is how quickly Justin Fields was to commit to the Packers rivalry. When watching the new behind-the-scenes documentary video (1920 Drive) that came out of Fields talking about his former Ohio State center with John DeFilippo, it almost seemed like second nature for him to disavow the Green Bay Packers.
So, for Chicago Bears fans far and wide, it’s going to be a lot of fun to see this competition grow between arguably the best rivalry in sports.
