Chicago Bears need a new rookie contract but not at QB

If Justin Fields is the man, everything else will become easy. Find a quarterback and head coach, and everything else will become easy. The Chicago Bears had two first-round picks. If they hit on Fields, one or both draft picks could be traded for future draft picks while still drafting a Darnell Wright-like player or two in the first round. Don't get caught up in the position. It could be the second tackle drafted, a playmaker, or a defensive shutdown monster.

That draft day trade last season could have been a generation trade. Imagine if a team (the Bears) had a franchise quarterback, traded for their number one weapon, and drafted their protector of the future while adding draft capital. Tell me you don't want to have it all? That is what every team dreams of. I needed to get that off my chest. That is how important it is for Justin Fields. If he is good, screw the rookie contract. The revolving door shifts from rookie quarterbacks outplaying their rookie contracts to one of the other three positions I listed outplaying theirs.

I spent way longer on that than planned, returning to my other thoughts on the season. Luke Getsy needs to adjust. Sure, he adjusted in the last two games. He needs to understand that he always needs to adjust. And as soon as something is working, stick with it. That goes for any play-caller, but sometimes these guys get caught up in their own stink. Playcalling is an art, not a science. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't do it, but I can see what needs to be done.
