Nah, I don’t think bears give up in Justin Fields

It’s been a while for Chicago Bears fans.

Their head coach was fired. General Manager too. One of the best and most famous players of the team was traded, Start a rebuilding project. Although the new GM wouldn’t necessarily invite a rebuilding project. But this is neither here nor there. Free agency came and went without the Bears making an impressive addition to either side of the ball. The trade winds were all about the league, but Khalil Mac’s deal was the only one the Bears could push. And when the 2022 NFL Draft came, I left with the Bears pick Only one wide receiver With her 11 (!) picks.

The optics are not good. This will not help:

The shortcomings of Chicago’s offseason when it comes to building around the fields is on full display in the piece above. It is too harsh on the margins, while at the same time losing many necessary nuances. But the big picture points remain – As they have done since March. Difficult to argue.

Even so… The opposite of Tannier’s argument is that this outsider was a show they really believed in in the fields.

This front office would probably believe so much in Fields’ overall skills and makeup that a bad year by the team wouldn’t hurt QB’s development. If that turns out to be the case, the Bears will turn into 2023 with a quarterback whose developmental arrow is pointing up, a Top 10 pick in the 2023 Draft class loaded with receivers, and improved minors who won’t cough offering them fields as they did against the Niners and Steelers. And the cherry on top is a $93,486,081 maximum available salary, according to OverTheCap.com. Having a top 10 pick and nearly $100 million in a workspace in it is very anomaly — and fields can be the beneficiary.

But it is clear that – for that to happen – he will need to prove it to the new system. And I don’t think there is anything wrong with that.

So, once again, we ask: Are bears holding back because they don’t believe in the fields? Or are they simply cleaning up a short-term mess in order to fully support the fields when the time is right? It is fair to ask. And it’s worth More exploration for the full scope of the situation. To be clear, I think it’s fair to question this off-season approach. But it may be unfair to announce the resignation of the concessionaire in the fields. After all, it doesn’t take much to make a show that cleaning up a depleted roster and capping a messy salary was a quicker move than putting together a reception room with potential draft arrivals and expensive free agents who might be dubious of their fits.

The Bears have been trying to fix huge problems with Zahi’s work and patchwork for years. Especially since the organization has just done so with its previous draft pick for the midfielder (and with mediocre results).

Publicly, the bears have been open in their support of the fields. GM Ryan Bowles was clear in his words It looks like he’s driving her home. Fields was on top of the introductory press conferences for the new head coach and general manager. A team that flirts with their commitment to a top-level midfielder probably won’t. Fields participated in the initial draft process, watching the tape with GM Ryan Poles that led to the weekend draft (h/t Chris Emma). However, the Bears did what they did off season. I wish they would have done more, but I don’t think the situation is as tragic as it can be portrayed.
