For better or worse, Chicago Bears fans will be monitoring the progress that Justin Fields makes with the Pittsburgh Steelers this season.

If Fields manages to unseat Russell Wilson as the Steelers' starting quarterback, the Bears will receive a fourth-round pick from the Steelers in next year's draft instead of a sixth-round pick. Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin has remained committed to Wilson opening the season as the starting quarterback and if the latest reaction from Fields' clips throwing is any indication, Tomlin is making the right decision.

Fields was seen throwing passes to social media influences, Route God, in which former Steelers' running back Le'Veon Bell highlighted the concern that has followed the former Bears' quarterback throughout his first three seasons in the NFL.

The knock on Fields, when he was the Bears' starting quarterback, was that he had to see the wide receiver get open before making the decision to pass. The delay in Fields' decision-making led to him missing wide receivers in stride, leading to scoring opportunities that were never realized for the Bears' offense.

Justin Fields' major flaw appears to be a major concern for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It's a much different story than what is happening with Caleb Williams and the Bears. Williams's quick release has drawn comparisons to Aaron Rodgers. Having said that, it does seem that Williams is adjusting to the timing at the NFL level as there have been clips of his throws being made late and not hitting the wide receiver in stride. The difference for Williams is that he is entering the NFL and that is to be expected during his rookie season. The same excuse can not be used for Fields and shows why he is equally to blame for what went wrong during his tenure as the Bears' quarterback.
