Chicago Bears Training Camp: 5 decisions that must be made at camp
The Chicago Bears must officially decide what to do at quarterback
Finally, and maybe most importantly, the Chicago Bears must make a final decision about the quarterback position. Right now, all signs point to Andy Dalton being the Week 1 starter. However, could Justin Fields prove himself worthy enough to start over Dalton during Chicago Bears training camp?
Right now, Fields is the second-string quarterback. Will he remain there, or will Nick Foles prove he is worth the second spot? Maybe Fields falters enough to prove he should not be counted on if Dalton goes down with an injury. I know that no one wants to hear this as a possibility, but it could be true. Doubtful it happens, but it could.
The more likely scenario is that the Chicago Bears decide Fields can’t stay on the sidelines and starts over Dalton. If Dalton struggles and Fields excels, I don’t see how Nagy keeps him on the bench. Us fans hope this is a decision that must be made during camp. Otherwise, the decision of starting Dalton and having Fields back him up has already been decided. I understand the want to have a plan, but plans must be flexible and Fields better have a real opportunity to start if he proves himself worthy.
All of these decisions must be made during Chicago Bears training camp. If we are still wondering what is going to happen and who is going to be playing where when the regular season starts, then Matt Nagy did not do a very good job this offseason. Are there any other decisions you hope the team decides on during training camp? Let us know in the comments.
