There is no question Chicago Bears need Fields to be the one. The history of QB failures is killing the fanbase. Another failure just might be the end. But that does bring us back to the question, are the Bears just bringing in one terrible QB after another, or are they squandering the talent when they do bring them in?
Right now the Bears are closer to being set for success than I can remember in a long time. They have several quality WRs and TEs. Players that can be a reliable outlet for a younger QB. They have two solid and talented pass catching RBs in Montgomey and Cohen. It's still that third leg, protection that will make or break it. It pains me to have to be heading into another season wondering if the OLine will be good enough.
Of course then we have to get past the coaching hurdle. Can Nagy bring the best out of Fields? Will he force the young QB to fit his version of what a Qb should be doing, like he did with Mitch, or can he look at what Fields brings to the table and implement a rookie favorable scheme? Or will he lean on Bill Lazor more. The games he let Bill call last season were a breath of fresh air. Easily Mitch's best string, or at least at the top.
Lots to give us hope this season... But I am firmly in the "show me" crowd these days. I have been burned too many times. It is sad that Chicago has screwed us over so many times that most of us can't even get excited anymore.
