The Chicago Bears have a great one on their hands. At least I am hopeful of that coming true. No matter what happens on the field, at least we know the Bears have another great off-the-field quarterback in Justin Fields on their hands.

Imagine walking down the street and in the blink of an eye, you are lying on the ground, covered in your own blood and in pain. You have little awareness of what happened or why you feel the way you do. You are lightheaded and dizzy. As you start to come to, you realize that the police are there speaking to you, telling you that you have been shot. As you are loaded into the ambulance on a stretcher, what are the first thoughts that come to your mind?

If I had to guess, it would be your loved ones. The thought of maybe your spouse or significant other. The thought of your parents or your kids. Maybe your siblings or your close friends come to mind. Where in that list of people and thoughts would Justin Fields come into your mind? Well, for a local man of 41 by the name of Scott Morrow, it did not take that long. Morrow spoke on the Parkins and Spiegel Show (670 the Score) last week detailing the events that took place in June.

Morrow spoke about how he was shot in the back while walking to a friend’s house. He detailed the event, but then shared how he held onto the idea that he could not die before he saw Justin Fields take the field as the Chicago Bears starting quarterback.

Morrow received care at Mount Sinai hospital and they saved his life. He spoke about how he lost his spleen, a kidney and a small portion of his pancreas. He talked about how they repaired a hole in his stomach and diaphragm. He is now staying with his parents as he recovers.

Justin Fields proves once again the Chicago Bears made the right choice

Well, as news circulated, Justin Fields once again proved that the Chicago Bears made the right choice to trade up nine spots and select him as their future franchise quarterback. Fields and his parents went out to surprise Scott Morrow at his parents’ house and met the gunshot victim.

Justin Fields brought Morrow a jersey and met with him. Morrow was obviously excited as he took to social media and share the news. Fields looks to be a standup guy off the field, now he needs to prove himself on the field. Let us hope for Morrow’s and all Bears fans’ sake that Fields is the true franchise quarterback this organization desperately needs.
