Dan needs to re-examine the Bears if he thinks the pieces on offense outside of Robinson aren’t great. Bears actually do have some good skill guys. O-line is my biggest concern in offense.

What part do you not get? This question has been asked several times the answer is when he is deemed ready to. I do not think it is our decision to discus and put more pressure on our Organization and QB. He is not far off from starting . But he should be Coached Up by his Coaches and I am sure that’s what they are doing as we speak. This is a team all players must be supported and not devised by Fan comments that divide our locker room.

Last season dalton loss 6 games in a row & loss wild card game why wouldn’t you start Justin Fields since they are going to have pre season definitely let him play against 49ers for not drafting him Mac & Justin was supposed to be a top 3 pick in the draft and Smith & Waddle was supposed to be a top 6 pick

Let Fields sit and learn and watch NFL regular season games to begin with. Andy Dalton is capable 9f playing well and winning games. It will give Fields a chance to understand the speed of the pro game and the different nuances.

Idk why Dan says the Bears o-line is the weakest part of their team. I'd argue it's the secondary that has a superstar in Jackson that takes plays off & never wants to get into a pile or do the dirty work, their other safety is a guy aging past his prime who is on his second team-friendly one year deal, and their starting cornerback #1 is entering just his second year & is coming off missing the last 3 games of his rookie season to a shoulder injury when he was drafted having slipped in the draft due to...shoulder surgeries. They also released their nickelback and signed another injury prone veteran in Trufant to be the cornerback #2 who has played in less than 10 games for 3 of the last 5 years. If anything the secondary is gonna be the weakness of the Bears

All first year rookie qb's need to get benched season one learn the nfl hit the weight room train and get ready to be a great qb. Groom the kid to the nfl this ain't college ball! Look what happened when the Bengals got burrow and got rid of dalton it wasn't dalton it was the lack of o line and what happened burrow got broke because it wasn't dalton it was lack of o line. Rookies get targets painted on them and hit hard welcome to the nfl style! Fields can learn alot from dalton. Dalton's like that veteran race car driver you test the car with before race day to figure out the flaws.

Most HOF QBs didn’t start from day one. Let him learn on the sidelines at least for a few games. It takes off a lot of the pressure and shows that his future and the Bears future comes first. Not saving executives jobs or giving short sighted fans their fix. By week 7 either through faltering or injury Justin will get on the Field. Treat this kid the right way. He’s a good kid by all accounts.

Andy Dalton has thrown for 33,000 yards in the NFL. What are the odds of Justin Fields doing that? Bears are terrible at picking qbs period. And Ohio State is terrible at producing them. Let Fields sit and learn the system. Don't throw him to the wolves too early.

as a Bears fan I swear to God I better no see Andy or Foles take a snap unless we up 30.

I been waiting for this moment my whole life I’ll be damned if it’s prolonged any longer than it has been

I don’t get them bashing the bears offensive line - they just drafted two starting tackles most likely and Daniels and Whitehair were banged up most of year - if all healthy this year they should be at least average if not above average. Jenkins will be a beast for sure at left tackle:

I disagree with all of this. In the end, if he's not ready and you put them out there too soon, it can traumatize him mentally. I know he's supposed to be mentally tough, but you don't want to play with his emotions either. Andy Dalton should be starting Week 1 and Justin Fields should take over when he's ready!

It's a 17 week season now. No rush. Game 6 or so unless Dalton starts really sucking. The line is fixed now. Leno was cut. Tevin is LT. Borom will eventually come in at RT. Give him until week 6 to learn the playbook ... or just bring him in for a couple of drives per game. If he starts banging in TDs ...

Every Bengals fan cringed a little when Dan mentioned hiding a bad offensive line. Can't play action every play. At some point Bears have to surround him with a solid oline and skilled guys that will make J. Fields job easier. Don't want to see that kid scrambling for his life and taking crazy hits right out the gate.

We have another stupid topic with a bunch of stupid takes. There is only 1 simple answer to this question: If Fields looks like the best Bears' QB on opening day, he should be the starter. If he's earned it, he's earned it. If Fields does not look like the best QB, don't force him into the lineup. There is no other answer. You don't need to force him into the starting lineup right away because you traded up and you don't need to sit him an arbitrary number of games because he's a rookie. Talk about some other sports so you actually have content. Baseball season is under way, tennis frickin awesome and a highlight + story machine. I don't even watch hockey, but I'd be very happy to see those highlights than these nauseatingly awful takes with overpaid athletes and "journalists".

Juicicles Acum 11 Zile
"It's his job to lose". That's how I would look at it, if I were The Bears. Go into the season thinking he's your starter. Having Andy Dalton there takes pressure off of everyone. If Fields isn't ready, then he isn't ready and Dalton starts. No big deal. It's pretty unrealistic to expect a rookie QB to come in and start. Especially one that didn't start for several years in college. You don't want to force things with young QBs and mess up their confidence like they did with Trubisky. Everyone knows that bringing them along slowly is the ideal situation. Whether it's a half of a season or a full one, or even a couple. That's how consistently Winning teams do it... Lol.

Dan is wrong. Outside of Allen Robinson you have DarnellMooney, David Montgomery, Cole Kmet, Tarik Cohen, and our 2 draft picks than can run a 4.4. Stop the slander that Bears don’t have weapons. Nobody knows who they are because we had Mitch at QB.
Mason Middaugh
Mason Middaugh Acum 11 Zile
I love how they talk about how they know Chicago but they really don’t, we have more than just arob, Darnell moony would be a number 2 on most teams, we have a 1000 yard rusher at rb, are o line towards the end of the year hardly gave up any sacks and are o line got a lot better in this past draft. This notion that the bears have 0 pieces on offense is held by people who don’t know what they’re talking about.(aka Dan)
