Bears messed up by not going after Russell Wilson enough
For what it's worth, Benjamin Allbright said on Twitter that the Bears and Seahawks did briefly talk about Russell Wilson during the 2021 off-season, but that the Seahawks weren't interested in Fields.

Regardless Fields should have a good game against a bad team Sunday. Hopefully he can show some flashes.


Nice back-hand, compliment. :sneaky:
Anyway, I've said it before, I see Steve Young in him.

Nice back handed compliment to call him a bigger slower Steve Young.

o_O when did I call JF is"a bigger slower Steve Young" ?
I see JF as a smart, mobile Qb just like Young. And you might check their 40 times.

40 yard dash are overrated if you understand how they work you can greatly improve your time.

Calling him an average mid NFL QB with his potential is hating? That's just silly. It's worse to give Fields unrealistic standards he'll never live up too.

Please read the full dialogue so u can get the proper discussion context >>#60
BTW.....I never brought up "HOF" the OP did. But read the full link>>>#60

You said "a bigger slower Steve Young"......I never said that. JF would be faster.
But the focus was on your back-hand complement >>>

If all the Bear's needed was a very good quarterback to contend for the Super Bowl, then yeah, trade for Wilson. But the Bear's last year were a terrible team and with Russell Wilson, they would not beat GB or be a play-off team. Wilson is on his descent as an NFL quarterback. The Bears made a smart decision to get rid of who they got rid of and rebuild. Give Fields a year to grow and the team with him. I'm just tired of the stupid half measures that this team always has done and the failure to ever grow a young qb.

How's that a back handed compliment? I think we can all agree Fields is still developing so why is it bad to say a developing qb should hopefully beat a bad defense.

I'd be quite happy to see Fields realize some performance on the level of Kyler Murray.

I don't see Fields turning into a Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck or Burrow level of talent who went through a similar struggle as Fields. It's just highly improbable.

Justin Fields ceiling is probably Matt Ryan or Andy Dalton level QB.
Josh Allen easily. Josh Allen didnt become elite until Stephon Diggs was signed. The key is getting Fields some weapons

The one thing I love about Fields that I could not stant with Mitch is field will throw accurately to open receivers. Mitch had waaay to many over throws

When one initially reads the comment, it sounds like......... "geez, it's a bad team, so he better have a good game and show some flashes ". If u didn't mean it that way, no problem.

Perhaps you'll agree.....it just seems there's a segment of ppl here that have JF on a "do-it-this-season time frame, or ELSE"
