Chicago Is Better Off

I’ve always thought Fields was not nearly as good as many made him out to be…

Man, every year there’s evidence that sometimes we in the media have no clue what teams think of certain players. For months we’ve heard NFL rumors about Justin Fields and how valuable he’d be in a trade.

ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. once suggested he’d be worth a top-10 pick. I even heard Keyshawn Johnson say that he thinks Fields will be a better quarterback than Caleb Williams. Well, the NFL news finally broke that Fields got traded to the Pittsburgh Steelers.


What was the price? A sixth-round pick that turns into a fourth-round pick if he reaches playing incentives. That is an incredibly low price for a former first-round pick quarterback who many seem to think highly of.

 

Most Overhyped Veteran QB Ever?

This hasn’t been talked about much but is Justin Fields the most overhyped veteran quarterback ever? I’ve never seen people overvalue a single player this much. I’ll be honest, I’ve always thought Fields was not nearly as good as many made him out to be.

I’m honestly shocked that so many Bears fans wanted to keep Fields over drafting Williams. Dude, your team has been ass at quarterback for decades and you’d rather keep a quarterback who literally can’t operate in the pocket over a generational prospect. I promise you guys will be thanking general manager Ryan Poles in a year when Williams is Rookie of the Year and Fields is just a utility player.


I’m not sure why many in the media thought that Fields was more than he is. Justin Fields’ stats as a rusher are impressive but he’s never thrown for more than 2,600 yards in a season. He’s an athlete trying to play quarterback and clearly, the NFL at large agrees with that sentiment.

 

What’s Next for Justin Fields?

Justin Fields will likely get a chance to start NFL games again at some point but I think he’s going to have to take a step back next season. Russell Wilson is the likely starter for the Steelers and even though he hasn’t played well in recent years, he’s at least proven he can run an effective offense.


Fields needs to sit back and learn as much as he can about being a pocket passer. We all know he’s dynamic with his legs but no team is going to give him a starting job until he can prove that he can operate in an NFL pocket.
