This Chicago Bears offense is being run for a different quarterback

3. Justin Fields has run less play action than Mac Jones, Trevor Lawrence the last three weeks

This season, Fields is completing 65.6 percent of his passes on play-action with a passer rating of 99.0, yet play action has only been called on 24.8 percent of his dropbacks.

In the last three weeks, Mac Jones has run 30 play-action passes and Trevor Lawrence has run 28. Fields, on the other hand, has run just 16. This is unacceptable, especially for the most mobile quarterback of the three who thrives off play action.

The fact is, when Fields runs play-action, good things happen. If this offense wants to score more touchdowns, then play action must be used. Nagy continues to relax in this area.

4. Mac Jones has more designed runs than Justin Fields this season

One of the more hilarious facts being discussed over the last week has been the issue with designed runs. Fields has just four designed runs this season, while the least-mobile rookie quarterback in this class (Jones) has five.

Nagy has a quarterback that runs a 4.4 and is built like a truck, but he isn’t using the guy correctly.

One more tidbit: seeing Fields line up in the shotgun as much as he has is baffling. Sure, Fields ran a lot of shotgun at Ohio State, but with the way this offensive line has played, Nagy has to keep the defense guessing more.
