Bears fans pull Mike Florio after the ridiculous Justin Fields tag

After a tough rookie, Bears quarterback Justin Fields has a clean sheet heading into his second year, learning a new offense that head coach Matt Eberflus promised will be quarterback-friendly.

The expectation is that Fields will take a step forward in Year 2, and he certainly looks to have a vote of confidence from Eberflus and the new general manager Ryan Poles.

But Pro Football Talks Mike Florio questioned whether the new regime actually believes in Fields after what has been an uninspiring offseason in which the Poles have torn down the guard to build for the future.

“It feels like the Bears are deliberately taking a step back,” Florio said on the 670 The Scores Dan Bernstein Show. “And the problem is usually that teams do it when they do not have a QB they believe in …

“Maybe that’s the hidden message here – that the new regime does not believe in Justin Fields. Because if they did, would they tear everything else down, or would they try to build everything else?”

As you can imagine, things did not go well with Bears fans. It was certainly a unique conclusion about Chicago’s overwhelming offseason, where the Poles have not made any notable splashes. This is largely due to cleaning up the mess that former GM Ryan Pace has left behind.

Looking at this current list (with about five months to go until the start of the regular season), it’s hard not to wonder if the organization is doing enough to help Fields in year 2. It’s worrying, yes. But that does not necessarily mean that the Bears do not believe in Fields.

Fans draw Florio entirely for his ridiculous Fields thanks – and also count the days until September, so the low season takes as these can be done.
