The Chicago Bears Have a QB. Really.

Jay Patel

Born and raised near Chicago, IL. Huge fan of the Bears, Bulls, Blackhawks, and Cubs. Currently in my junior year of college at Indiana State University. Sports enthusiast, fitness fanatic, and music lover.

I’ve never seen the Twitter feed for the Bears so happy before. Usually it’s just a bunch of sad fans who are bashing the front office and coaching. And as a Bears fan, I completely understand the frustration. With the draft, Chicago had a chance to address big roster needs like corner back and offensive tackle. Heck, maybe even a QB. The fact of the matter was Chicago was rumored to be looking at day 2 or 3 QBs like Kellen Mond or Kyle Trask. As the Giants were on the clock at pick No. 11, the Bears realized this was their chance to land one of the best QB prospects in the draft who somehow slipped out of the top 10. GM Ryan Pace (fighting for his job this season) pulled the trigger, sending picks 20 and 164 along with a 1st and 4th rounder next year to New York for the 11th selection in the 2021 NFL Draft. And with the 11th pick in the 2021 draft, the Chicago Bears select QB Justin Fields.

What About Dalton and Foles?

With Fields in the picture, the Bears still have two veteran QBs on their roster. Pace iterated that Dalton was still the starting QB for the Bears heading into week one. Fine call honestly. Let Fields learn and develop from veteran QBs. This situation is similar to the Mike Glennon-Mitchell Trubisky situation where Trubisky earned the starting role after the first few games. Dalton is better than Glennon, so it could be a longer wait for Fields to take over. However, this is a smart approach for a team who has lacked a franchise QB for so long.

Dalton will be under center for the Bears to start the season

Now, Foles is in an interesting situation. He’s not the starter, but he is the likely backup unless Chicago releases or trades him. Even if Dalton does not pan out in Chicago, Fields would most likely be the guy the Bears turn to. It’s going to be tough to get rid of Foles due to his contract, and he doesn’t have a clear role with the Bears. So, where does Foles fit in Chicago’s plans?

What are the Bears going to do with Foles?

Field’s Ohio State Résumé

Justin Fields was one of the best QBs in college football last season. It can easily be argued he was the second best behind Trevor Lawerence. In two season with Ohio State, Fields threw for 5.373 yards and 63 TDs. Absurd numbers. Even crazier, he threw only nine interceptions. 63 TDs to NINE INTs. Additionally, Fields is a dual-threat QB as he can run. Fields rushed for 867 yards and and 15 TDs. It will not be easy to bring this guy down.

Fields is a tough, physical QB

He has shown up in the clutch as well. We all know how dominant he was against Clemson, throwing for six TDs and a career-high 385 passing yards. Fields is a tough, athletic, and talented QB. In today’s NFL, Fields will fit right in.

Bright Future for DA Bears

Even with Dalton taking the starting job this season, it’s hard not to be excited for when it’s Fields time to shine. Chicago has built a good offensive core through the last couple of drafts with WR Darnell Mooney, RB David Montgomery, TE Cole Kmet, and G James Daniels. Add star WR Allen Robinson, crafty RB Tarik Cohen, and red-zone threat Jimmy Graham, Chicago’s offense will be cooking. There is still a need to improve the line, but Chicago has a 2nd and 3rd round pick to address the need.

Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney are pillars of the Bears offense

On the defensive side, Khalil Mack will always keep the Bears defense dangerous. Kyle Fuller was a huge loss, and his replacement could be veteran Desmond Trufant (signed in free agency), but it’d be nice adding another rookie or vet to the mix. Roquan Smith, Eddie Jackson, and Akiem Hicks are great, giving the Bears impact players on all levels of the defense.

Chicago was not expected to do well this season, especially with a tough schedule. There was also so much madness going on early in free agency with Fuller’s release, Allen Robinson not signing the franchise tag, and signing Dalton. It’s crazy how one pick can change the entire atmosphere of a team. Justin Fields is that pick. For the first time in a long time, the Chicago Bears have a QB and hope.

  • I have noticed that over the course of building a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in every single real estate financial transaction, a commission amount is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers tend not to “save” the payment. Rather, they fight to win the commission simply by doing a strong agent’s occupation. In accomplishing this, they shell out their money and also time to execute, as best they are able to, the tasks of an broker.

  • In line with my research, after a property foreclosure home is sold at a sale, it is common for the borrower to still have a remaining unpaid debt on the loan. There are many creditors who aim to have all charges and liens paid by the future buyer. Nevertheless, depending on specific programs, restrictions, and state guidelines there may be quite a few loans which aren’t easily handled through the exchange of loans. Therefore, the duty still falls on the borrower that has had his or her property in foreclosure. Thanks for sharing your notions on this weblog.
