Remember when there was a dialog about Lamar Jackson earlier than he was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens? Is he extra of an NFL working again than a quarterback?
Jackson has answered that query and extra over the previous few seasons, however maybe it is now Chicago Bears’ second-year quarterback Justin Fields who wants to choose up the slack in that division.
Fields was taken by the Bears with the eleventh decide of the 2021 NFL Draft out of Ohio State due to his unbelievable athleticism and upside. He’s proven off the athleticism together with his legs by the primary 15 video games of his profession (515 yards and three speeding touchdowns), however the place is that upside as a quarterback?
Matt Nagy hardly knew the best way to use Fields, which led to him being fired. Perhaps Matt Eberflus will maintain the keys to unlocking Fields, however by three video games issues do not look all that promising.
Sure, the Bears are 2-1, which is sweet. The unhealthy is that Fields has barely proven something as a quarterback. Yes, he will be spectacular with the ball in his fingers, however who’s he as a passer beneath Eberflus?
At least proper now, Fields is a quarterback who’s acting at a traditionally low tempo.
