Justin Fields and Darnell Mooney are building something beautiful for the Chicago Bears

Whether it’s Instagram stories of the two bowling together on a weekend, or the two training in Georgia together this offseason, Justin Fields and Darnell Mooney have been in the lab building something together.

The two of them will be two of the stars of this offense moving forward, maybe even this league.

Having a quarterback and wide receiver that are so seemingly on the same page about everything is something all offenses wish they had.

Looking at it, most big-name quarterbacks have “their guy,” otherwise they don’t really ever shine as a quarterback in the league.

Sure, there are instances of quarterbacks being very open with the ball and making sure to spread it out, Tom Brady, but as of late, quarterback-wide receiver duos have been the new copied equation among teams.

Whether it’s Matt Stafford and Cooper Kupp; Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase; Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs; or formerly Patrick Mahomes and Tyreek Hill and Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams, the idea that a quarterback needs their right-hand guy in a receiver is almost essential now.

While it’s mostly speculation when saying Justin Fields and Darnell Mooney can get to the level these duos are at, it’s not impossible.

Darnell Mooney, with a combination of quarterbacks, ended the 2021-22 season with 81 receptions (off 140 targets), 1,055 yards, and 4 receiving touchdowns.

Maybe it’s blind optimism, but Justin Fields and Darnell Mooney will be a for-real duo in this league by the middle of the 2022-23 season, guaranteed. I could be wrong, but this is something I believe beyond my hopes. Obviously, this would benefit the Bears fan in me, but even if these two were wearing green and yellow, the opinion would stick.

Whatever happens, Bears fans should be excited to watch Justin Fields lead the Chicago Bears.
