    Watching the Bears offense last year was torture. I understand some of that may be the limitations of Trubisky/Foles but there were god-awful designs and playcalls all season. Mind-numbingly dumb from Nagy and Lazor.

    Interesting enough, they brought in Herman to help on the offensive staff. Dude’s a creep but he can roll. Hope he implements things to maximize Fields.

    Herman may get Fields killed. I don’t know how you have Bijan Robinson last year and Sam Ehlinger leads the team for second straight season in rushing attempts....awful.

    Maybe it’s me, but I feel like Herman got caught up in Urban Meyer’s strategy of always looking to outflank the defense and get a numbers advantage in run game, and became way too reliant on it at tOSU and then Texas. I don’t see any of that working in NFL....it doesn’t even work in college anymore.

    I feel for Fields. I think he’s walking into an absolute dumpster fire. I’d be curious to learn more, in terms of why NFL teams got such cold feet on him (I think there’s more than the epilepsy history).

    JF's Christmas morning(night?) didn't go quite as he might have wished but over time the amount of money will soothe his hurt feelings. He'll get his chance to prove critics wrong.

    The Bears have some guys on offense so if they can figure out a scheme JF could have a good year. Herman was at his best as an OC the year he had to go from Braxton to J.T. to Cardale for the course of 12 months so he can probably find a way to make something work for Justin. I just hope they don't try to install the Ravens offense. It will probably work, but it wouldn't be the best use of Justin's skills.

    Simple solution, become a Bears fan!

    The Packers have dominated the Bears for the past 30 years because of the QB position. That may change in a year or two.

    The former Ohio State quarterback was selected as the No. 11 overall pick in the opening round of last week’s NFL Draft by the Chicago Bears. Less than a week later, the folks in Las Vegas have Fields among the favorites for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year honors.

    The former Buckeyes star has the second-best odds at 11/2, according to BetOnline.ag. No. 1 overall pick and Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence has the best odds to win the award at 7/2. Fields leads the third-overall pick, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance, who holds a 13/2 chance.

    Odds are already out on the starting status for Fields, too. The odds of him starting Chicago’s opening game of the regular season have been set at 7/2, with his chance of not starting are 1/6. The Bears plan to have Andy Dalton as their starting quarterback this fall, helping Fields adjust to the offense and play at the next level.

    Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald says Justin Fields took unfair criticism

    Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald told NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano on Tuesday that he thinks analysis of that particular game was overblown. And he even stumped for Fields when talking with the Bears' brass.

    “Matt and Ryan were at our Pro Day, and we were just talking about other players in the Big Ten and Justin’s name came up," Fitzgerald said. "I said what I’ve said to the media all along: He’s getting a bad rap for maybe the yards and the total things that happened in the Big Ten championship against us. He got hurt. He hurt his hand. But he didn’t come out, and to Ryan Day’s credit and Kevin Wilson, as they adjusted their offense they found an area that we didn’t stop, and to their credit, they won the Big Ten championship game. But I think he’s getting an unfair knock.

    "I would say look at the way he responded against Clemson, against a team that obviously is a perennial championship program also. I don’t only think he responded, he responded boldly. So as a Bears fan, I’m ecstatic. Ten years old in 1985, singing the ‘Super Bowl Shuffle’ and it’s a great opportunity for Justin. I tried like heck to get him here in recruiting, but now I’m sure the Fitzgerald boys will be getting some Fields jerseys and rooting for him on Sundays when the Bears play.”
