The Justin Fields era in Chicago seems to be nearing its end.
The Chicago Bears are currently in a state of disarray, and considering the direction they’re headed, significant changes could be on the horizon, possibly in the coming months or even weeks. ESPN’s Mike Greenberg expressed his empathy for Bears quarterback Justin Fields.
During Wednesday’s episode of Get Up, the ESPN analyst criticized the Bears for mishandling Fields to the point of no return. He believes that it’s in Fields’ best interest to leave Chicago while he still has the opportunity.
“The Chicago Bears have screwed that kid up beyond repair… The best thing that could happen to Justin Fields is to get up out of there immediately,” Greenberg said.
“The reality is, this organization from the top down has screwed everything up beyond belief over the last decade, if not more. It is time to start over again and the best thing that can happen to Justin Fields, a kid with some talent and some upside, who appears to be on the verge of being irreparably broken, the best thing for him is to get out of there as quickly as possible.”
While some would contend that Justin Fields’ difficulties have contributed significantly to the Bears’ turmoil rather than being a mere result of it, it’s essential to acknowledge that he has ranked among the lowest-rated passers since entering the league in 2021.
However, it’s becoming increasingly evident that substantial changes are imperative within the Bears organization, extending well beyond Fields’ performance.
A separation between Fields and the team might ultimately be the best course of action for all parties involved.
