Chicago Bears fans, your chants have been heard.
Justin Fields is officially the starting quarterback moving forward.
Justin Fields is officially QB1 for the Chicago Bears moving forward
This news, along with the news that Bill Lazor was the Bears’ play-caller in Week 4 gives Bears fans good reason to get excited about this team.
Justin Fields and Darnell Mooney seem to have a connection that, if they can build on it week-by-week, could be among the league’s best QB-WR duos.
Justin Fields is by no means a perfect quarterback, but he undoubtedly makes this offense a frisky one, maybe even a good one.
With the speed this offense has across the board, Justin Fields adds a much more impressive palate of skills than Andy Dalton does– and that’s not a knock on Dalton. Fields is just arguably harder to scheme against on defense, given his ability to beat you in different ways.
With Dalton, defenses don’t necessarily have to take into account the scramble or RPO options as they do with Justin Fields.
Not only is Justin Fields a Chicago favorite already, but now that he’s been given the starter title moving forward, the Chicago Bears can grow with him. It’s not going to be flawless– I really hope I’m wrong– but this offense can build chemistry with each other week-by-week, rather than day-by-day with limited knowledge of who’s starting on Sunday.
Now, I think some of this media paranoia that Matt Nagy showed when beating around the “starting quarterback” bush was smoke in mirrors. For some reason, Nagy thought teams would take his word during press conferences as the complete truth, however, I don’t think that’s the case.
When a defense plays the Chicago Bears, odds are they’re preparing for both quarterbacks since both have a likelihood of playing.
Now with the cat out of the bag, the Chicago Bears can focus on the Chicago Bears instead of trying to play a game of mind-reader.
