Justin Fields will be the new quarterback for the Chicago Bears. The Bears moved up in the draft to select Fields, who had fallen out of the Top-1o on draft night. But the Bears made an important move, securing a quarterback after a few years of struggle with Mitchell Trubisky.

NFL analyst Marcellus Wiley spoke on Speak For Yourself about Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears. He believes that Justin Fields could be the solution to the Bears’ quarterback problems.

Therefore, he is in a great situation for the Bears. There are low expectations, given the franchise’s history with rookie quarterbacks. All he has to do is perform better than them, and he will be beloved in Chicago.

“Justin Fields is going to walk into a perfect situation. Not only because all he’s got to do is be better than Mitchell Trubisky and they’re going to love you.

“But also, this chip on his shoulder. The way he was giving all those half hugs to his family when he got drafted because he got slighted.” 

Justin Fields ready to succeed.

Wiley added that Fields and Chicago are a perfect match with each other. During the Draft, Fields was visibly upset about the fact he fell down the pecking order in the draft.

But both the franchise and the player can be confident with each other and believe that they can improve each other’s situation.

The Bears have a loyal Chicago fanbase that loves its sports, and they have a quarterback that can bring them back to prominence once again.

“Chicago and Justin Fields are going to say to each other, ‘We can both pull each other up’. This fanbase, that is ready for an opportunity at starting franchise quarterback level to pull them the playoffs deep, back to their Super Bowl-winning ways, and a quarterback that felt he should have gone higher than he did. They’re going to both pull each other up.”
