On Wednesday, ProFootballTalk’s Mike Florio joined 670 The Score to talk about the Chicago Bears, and during that talk, Justin Fields was a prime topic of discussion.

"“It feels like the Bears are deliberately taking a step back. And the problem is usually teams do that when they don’t have a QB they believe in.”"

Now, for those that saw what the roster was when Ryan Poles took over, it’s not like they were a contending team on the fringe; and now they’re doing a fire sale.

Did the Chicago Bears actually take much of a step back, or was the roster just that bad, to begin with?

Last season, they were 6-11, meaning they were just about as mediocre as it came.

Their roster was in a weird spot. In most positions, there was either a wily vet or a rookie. Now, that’s an exaggeration, but it’s not too far from the truth.

In the 2021-22 season, the Chicago Bears were ranked 27 in points for and 22nd in points against. It’s hard to believe that this team was able to get six wins.

However, when Poles came to the Chicago Bears, was he actually planning on going in a different direction than Justin Fields? Did Mike Florio nail it on the head, or is he missing the mark completely?

Twitter had some things to say about it. I’ll let them finish it off. Considering the ratio on this post (143 RTs to 81 likes, as well as 144 replies), Chicago Bears fans have not been ones to mess with on Twitter lately.

No, Bears fans haven’t forgotten about Jersey Jerry. But, it’s Florio’s time to feel the Bears fans’ wrath.

At the end of the day, Justin Fields is the guy moving forward. It’s been said by Ryan Poles, and it’s been said by Matt Eberflus.

The Chicago Bears are going to include Justin Fields in their future plans. Mike Florio made a statement that got people riled up. Some could say it’s his job. His job or not, Chicago Bears fans were not pleased with the statement, and rightfully so.
