The Bears are “all in” on Justin Fields. Frankly, what choice do new General Manager Ryan Poles and new coach Matt Eberflus have this season? Fields was a first-round draft choice in 2021.

The Bears are hoping to make the best of a roster without a Pro Bowler on the offensive side and without spending free agent or using draft resources on a receiver or an offensive tackle. But they do have Fields, who made 10 starts last season and threw seven touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

“I’ve been super impressed with him. I really have,” Bears offensive coordinator Luke Getsy said, via Kevin Fishbain of TheAthletic.com. “There’s no one in this building that works harder than him. There’s no one that cares more than him. We’re off to a great start. He’s really accepted this challenge. We’re asking a lot of him to learn a lot of new things. He’s been a pleasure to work with.”

Getsy and Fields haven’t had much time together yet, but they are building a relationship day by day.

“I was raised on that — that the play caller and the quarterback have to have a great relationship, and that’s important,” Getsy said. “We have to be on the same page, always. That’s where I’ve felt like he’s grown, is he’s communicating with me so well now — things that he’s feeling; things that he sees — and so that part of it has just been tremendous, for a young guy to be able to do that. These three or four months that we’ve been together, it’s been a lot of fun.”

  1. They are definitely in the honeymoon stage of their relationship. This will more likely than not end in a divorce by the end of the year, although I’m betting on week 6. Fields is not a good QB.

  2. Mike Tyson said everyone has a plan until they get hit in the face. Similarly, everyone has a plan until you’re being chased by the opposing defense. Wishing Fields the best but we’ll see once the rubber hits the road.

  3. I think we can all safely agree Justin Fields is not, nor ever will be, Aaron Rodgers. Love him or hate him, GB’s #12 is a singular talent. The intrigue will come in seeing how close Getsy can get Fields to that.

  4. Justin has been a winner at every level and with the right coaching and scheme , he will succeed with the Bears. I love what Poles is doing. Compete for a job is the way it should be.

  5. The Bears have an offensive lineman as their GM. This should help keep their QB1’s protection. They did draft four linemen, hopefully they finally put together a decent O Line. The WRs will come in time. Monty and Herbert is a great 1/2 punch along with Cole Kmet at TE.
