Chicago Bears fans should be excited about Justin Fields in year three

Justin Fields is going into his third season as the Chicago Bears quarterback. He showed progress from his rookie season to his sophomore season. Now it is time to see an even bigger jump in year three. We saw Josh Allen and Jalen Hurts take those leaps in year three because their teams surrounded them with better talent and some top-level receiving options. Well, Ryan Poles did the same with the addition of DJ Moore, Chase Claypool, Robert Tonyan (red zone) and the drafting of Tyler Scott (deep balls).

Maybe more importantly, Ryan Poles made an effort to improve the Bears' offensive line. If they can keep Justin Fields upright and allow him to throw the ball more often, then this offense should explode even more than it did late last season. Over a four-week span, the Chicago Bears averaged nearly 30 points per game. Fields did a little too much with his legs, but now that he is comfortable and in year two of Luke Getsy's offense, I expect the offense to carry this team in 2023.

dark. Next. Players Gave Up Too Soon. 18 players the Bears gave up on too soon

If you are not excited about the Bears' training camp and upcoming preseason games, I'm not sure what to tell you. This team excites me even more than the 2019 team did coming off their NFC North title and double-doink loss to the Eagles in the playoffs. The offense should be vastly improved and should Justin Fields not live up to my expectations, Ryan Poles has two first-round picks in his pocket to deploy for a new quarterback if necessary. I highly doubt that needs to happen though.
