You and I have always disagreed on this point, which is ok. Now Fields will be on the bench to start the season so that is a moot point not worth debating. If Dalton has his head handed to him against either one of these two damn good defenses the Rams and Browns at the start of the season then that becomes a different question altogether.I also think those are things that he can grow from by seeing them from the sideline and on tape for a bit before getting thrown in. Remember, these were preseason reads. It’s only going to get harder from here on out. I don’t think it’s a bad decision to let him learn from the sideline first…
After watching Fields growth, first at Ohio State, then with the Bears from OTA's on I am more convinced now than ever before that mentally he is as ready as any rookie QB I have ever seen in a Bears uniform to start. I say this because he learns quickly from his mistakes on the field. The big hit he took against the Bills is a prime example. Fields makes the mistake takes a big hit from a free runner, later in the game Bills run the same blitz from a different formation, Fields sees it and makes the right call.
When Fields does start expect mistakes. The good ones learn quickly, the bad ones like Trubisky never learn.
