nice to see the kid get the score. Have to agree with the announcer, won't name him, Holts did a great job moving two guys just enough to give Fields a hole. 

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.

Matt Nagy says Justin Fields 'provides a lot of value' as a chess piece

Justin Fields wasn’t pleased with how he played Sunday

Fields will have a lot to correct from his first extended NFL outing after he played the entire second half because of Andy Dalton’s knee injury, which still is being evaluated. Fields completed 6 of 13 passes for 60 yards, rushed 10 times for 31 yards and threw a fourth-quarter interception that the Bengals turned into a touchdown one play later.

“I don’t think I’m pleased with how I played at all,” Fields said. “There’s a lot more in me that I have to show. That’s going to come with time. I know it’s not going to happen overnight, so I’m just going to keep grinding and no matter what happens, I know I’m meant for this. I’m meant to be here.”

“It was crazy,” Fields said. “You’re constantly told: ‘Be ready, you never know what may happen’ — and it happened. … I think I was pretty prepared, but there were definitely mistakes made out there and I’m just going to go watch the film and learn from those mistakes.”

Along with a couple of missed connections in the end zone in the second half, Fields fumbled while being sacked on the Bears’ first drive of the third quarter, though he flung his body at the football to prevent the Bengals from scooping it up and scoring.

He had a pair of false-start penalties on the Bears’ next drive, afterward saying the official told him he flinched. And he threw an interception when the Bengals showed a Cover-0 look but linebacker Logan Wilson dropped back to jump in front of a pass intended for Marquise Goodwin.

When Is a Rookie Quarterback Really Ready in the NFL?

Some believe the only way to test a rookie passer’s mettle is to start them right away; others think it’s better to learn on the bench and get in the action later. What’s the right answer? And how do teams get to their own determinations?

The saying goes that you can’t learn to swim by reading a book; you have to get into the water. Many feel the same principle applies to playing quarterback. The coaches and executives who tout this action-over-observation philosophy believe that the best way to prepare a rookie passer for the NFL is to toss them in.....

But ask around the NFL, and many coaches follow another, more traditional school of thought: Young quarterbacks should sit and learn on the sidelines. There’s plenty of historical evidence to back up this method, too. After all, some of the best quarterbacks of the last 20 years were developed this way: Aaron Rodgers, Patrick Mahomes, Tom Brady, and Drew Brees.

Kind of reminds me of the Nick Foles "Injury" last season that put Mitch back in the saddle.

There is no proof that those same QBs needed to sit to develop... Brady was a 6th round QB forced into action in game 2 of his second year... only reason Aaron Rodgers sat was because Favre was still there... had he ended up on the Bears he probably would have been the starter that season...  And Mahomes don't get me started... all he has done since taking over as the starter is go to the AFC championship three times, the super bowl twice and won the MVP award after having a 5000 yard, 50 TD season... who's to say that he wouldn't have lead them to the super bowl as a rookie had they given him the chance... in this instance there is no verifiable proof that any of those QBs needed to sit to mature or whatever... while I can show you multiple QBs who have started early and become solid to all pro QBs...

Good QBs usually show themselves to be good pretty quickly in the NFL... Are mistakes made by young QBs, sure but with the NFL and college being so close on offensive styles now, the transition is no where near as difficult as it was in the old days and even then good QBs played well early and bad QBs played poorly... look at the 83 draft... the cream rose to the top...

I think the whole debate over sitting rookies vs starting them is silly. Like there is some formula. A guy can either play or he can't. If he can play then let him play. He will make the same mistakes as he learns either way. It still is a team sport. The offense and coaching around a rookie QB are way more important than sitting on the bench for a year. 
 

if Fields is the QB we hope he is, he will do just fine and we will see him improve week to week. If he is a bust, well he will play just good enough for half the fans to love him and the other half to hate him.

Train like you are 2nd, but play like you are 1st.
