Chicago Bears fans reacted to a significant report from ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler on how the team sees Justin Fields progressing ahead of their Week 6 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings.
According to Fowler, the Bears think Fields is playing the quarterback position the best he ever has in Week 4 and Week 5:
“The Bears believe quarterback Justin Fields has seen the field maybe better than he ever has over the past two games. And they believe when Fields’ footwork is clean, that guides his eyes, and good things happen in the pocket. Fields also said after Thursday night’s win over Washington that he reminds offensive coordinator Luke Getsy to get DJ Moore the ball as much as possible.
After 15 targets for Moore through Weeks 1-3, he has 19 over the past two weeks — with Fields’ play exploding during that span, throwing for 617 yards and eight touchdown passes.”
Fields has thrown for eight touchdowns in the previous two games and has only one interception. Unfortunately, the lone interception against the Denver Broncos killed the Bears‘ chances of winning the Week 4 matchup. However, Fields’ four-touchdown performance against the Washington Commanders last week guaranteed the Bears their first win of the season.
The timing of the report from the Bears is interesting, too. The Bears could be giving some confidence to Fields after good play. Or could they be hyping up his play for trade talks before the deadline?

Good bro! They should 100% keep him and not draft Caleb Williams and or Drake Maye. I’m also very sure Biden Jr is a legit head coach for the long term. #BearDown

Sounds like what they mean to say is when we step back and let Justin Fields do HIS thing it’s amazing to watch, rather than him be abysmal by trying to be the player THE COACH wants him to be

He looked way more comfortable in the pocket, his internal clock was amazing both games. If he can focus on that internal clock I think he can be a top 10 QB

Played vs the Broncos and the Commanders…

The bears won one game in the last 16, and now they feel like they are on top of the world
