The debate over what the Chicago Bears will do with the first overall selection in the 2024 NFL Draft is all but over.

Sure, if you're a Bears fan who lives on social media, you undoubtedly saw the tweet that suggested that the Bears have decided to keep Justin Fields because of his dwindling trade market.

There is no reason to spend much attention on a rumor that, in it's root, is flawed.

The tweet insinuates that because teams across the NFL do not value Fields as a starting quarterback, the Bears will decide to keep Fields despite having a chance at drafting a generational quarterback in Caleb Williams.

Fortunately, the Bears do not live on social media.

That would be the reason why Dianna Russini's facial expression on the latest episode "Hoge and Jahns" mocked the idea that there is even still a debate.

But Russini is only the national reporter. Indeed, considering the noise on social media, other reporters are reporting that the Bears will be keeping Fields and moving forward with Justin Fields as the team's starting quarterback.

Listen to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport on Friday's episode of "The Pat McAfee Show" talk about the quarterback decision ahead of the Bears.

If reports are to be believed, Justin Fields will no longer be the Chicago Bears starting quarterback.

Two national insiders are reporting that the expectation is that Williams will be the quarterback for the Bears moving forward. This can be brutal news for many of the Bears' fanbase.

The reporting isn't exclusive to the national level either.

Locally, David Kaplan of ESPN Chicago reported on Friday during his show that the Bears are moving forward with the plan to draft Williams.

The shrinking list of suitors will not change the Bears' plan at the quarterback position this off-season. The Bears' plan moving forward involves Williams as their quarterback regardless of the fallacies that may be cried upon social media.
