Justin Fields is the great hope of the Chicago Bears

So Justin Fields can run. What does that mean for the Chicago Bears? How does that make him a potential top-tier quarterback? Ideally, you want a quarterback to throw the ball, but better yet, you NEED them to be elite at something. What Pat Mohomes does is completely different than Tom Brady, Lamar Jackson, and Aaron Rodgers. Some will say well; they can all pass the ball. Sure, I understand where you are coming from. Mahomes is an agile gunslinger who will carve a team up in the passing game. It's shocking when he doesn't surpass 4,700 passing yards and 37 passing touchdowns.

Tom Brady is a tale of two different players. At times he was the best-ever game-manager-styled quarterback who would float around 30 passing touchdowns and 4,300 yards. Rodgers is the agile version of Brady, who has never passed for over 4,500 passing yards but only tossed double-digit interceptions three times in 17 years. Elite quarterbacks do what they do best to the highest level. Justin Fields has the ability to become what Terrelle Pryor thought he could be when he ran 93 yards for a touchdown against the Steelers in 2013.

The Packers have sat on Jordan Love hoping he could become who I believe Justin Fields is of this generation, stylistically. I know I have mentioned this guy before, but that is because, to this day, Steve Young is the best dual-threat quarterback in the history of the NFL, in my opinion. Vick would have been, but for many reasons that we won't get into, Young is put ahead. Young was a fast man; he really was.
