In the post-season press conference with Chicago Bears general manager Ryan Poles and head coach Matt Eberflus, there was some clarity on whether Justin Fields would be the Bears’ quarterback moving forward.

Chicago Bears would need to be ‘absolutely blown away’ to draft a new QB

When asked if the Bears could take a quarterback with the No. 1 overall pick, Poles kept Justin Fields fans calm with the way he responded.

"“I would have to be absolutely blown away [to draft a quarterback No. 1],” said Poles."

While there’s a crowd online that things Justin Fields needs to hit the road, Ryan Poles and the Chicago Bears don’t seem to be subscribing to that thought.

That said, Poles was up-front about Fields, saying he needs to improve.

And while that’s a tough pill to swallow for some, it’s the truth.

Justin Fields wasn’t a perfect passer this season, however, he showed flashes of what’s possible if more talent surrounds him.

There’s a lot to look at when wondering why the passing offense was so stagnant.

Between a new coaching staff, a new offensive installation, and the lower skill level of those surrounding Fields, there’s not just one area to blame.

Now that the Chicago Bears have a wallet overflowing with offseason spending money, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft, and some players who’ve proven their worth, it’s time to turn this ship around.

And the captain of that ship is Justin Fields.

In this business, sometimes you have to exaggerate the truth to make other teams think you’re doing one thing when you’re doing something completely different.

And as Ryan Poles ended the press conference with, “Everyone should be excited about the direction we’re going to go.”

This is where the championship DVD starts; this is the beginning of an exciting future for the Chicago Bears.
