Chicago Bears takeaway No. 2: Justin Fields receives more high praise

After a few rough plays by Justin Fields on Monday, he and the offense reportedly bounced back today. As beat reporter, Adam Hoge stated, Fields continues to put together a solid performance after a poor performance.

I continue to stress that I’m not worried about the offense. There is no judging the offensive performances at this point in the offseason. We need to see how the team comes together with pads on in July and August and then into the preseason. Trying to get an idea of what the offense can do right now doesn’t make sense and even Fields made it known he doesn’t believe they are ready at this point. That said, he did also say they will be ready when the time comes.

As for Fields himself, he received praise from his head coach, Matt Eberflus today. He also received high praise from Byron Pringle and Ryan Griffin. Pringle has seen great quarterback play while being teammates with Patrick Mahomes. Griffin has played with Mahomes’ 2017 fellow draft pick, Deshaun Watson. Pringle and Griffin both made comments about Fields’ work ethic and I think that’s what is going to set him apart from former Bears quarterbacks like Jay Cutler and Mitch Trubisky.
