Matt Eberflus gave a very familiar quote on Tyson Bagent showing that he didn’t fall from the Lovie Smith Cover-2 defensive scheme apple tree.
Lovie Smith famously said “Rex is our quarterback” after dealing with an up and down career with the Chicago Bears. As Grossman would continuously struggle, Smith would reinterate what Matt Eberflus stated today about Justin Fields. “Justin is our quarterback.” after Tyson Bagent won his first start in resounding fashion over the Las Vegas Raiders.
Matt Eberflus: “Justin’s our starting quarterback. Tyson’s the backup.”

Bagent finished 21-29 for 162 yards and one touchdown in the Bears 30-12 win.
The question now becomes when does Justin Fields return. There has been some talk that Fields could return next week against the Chargers.
