Timing is everything for the Chicago Bears

There are many scenarios that can play out for the Chicago Bears this season. Andy Dalton could have a bounceback year and lead the Bears to a second-straight postseason. I don’t think many would be too upset with this scenario. This would mean either Dalton is getting the job done, or Justin Fields isn’t necessarily ready yet.

Something tells me the guy that broke the record for the highest aptitude test score will be more than ready for the real show. Not only that, but Fields is the same quarterback that dominated a Clemson team with the No. 1 overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft on it. The two first-round quarterbacks dueled it out, but Ohio State ended up defeating Clemson 49-28. (If there are any doubters, watch the highlights from this game).

As a fan, you can clearly see there is more excitement for Justin Fields than there was for Mitch Trubisky. Fields not only has the stats, but he has played great competition for more than a year.

Mitch Trubisky’s stats out of college were nothing spectacular. Trubisky threw for 4,762 yards, 41 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions. Those aren’t numbers you would expect from someone drafted second overall.

Justin Fields was much more consistent and reliable at Ohio State. Fields threw for 5,701 yards, 67 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions during his college career. Fields also rushed for 19 more touchdowns in that same span.
