Cubs News: Justin Fields studying to improve situational football


by - Senior Editor -

Chicago Bears franchise quarterback Justin Fields has the athletic ability to be one of the most dangerous quarterbacks in the NFL.

However, the Bears finished with the NFL's worst record last season, and improvements need to be made on the details for Fields and Co. to take the next step in winning more games.

Fortunately, Fields is already working hard this offseason to improve his game and prepare for the upcoming season.

“He's working hard this offseason on his own,” Eberflus told NFL Network's Judy Battista recently. “Looking at the tape from last year, looking at other quarterbacks, studying other quarterbacks in different situations. Third down, two-minute and all those various situations you get into. And he's doing a great job at that."

Eberflus loves what he sees how of Fields.

"I was with him the whole year," Eberflus said. "I was in all the quarterback meetings. And I really spent the first year building that relationship with him as a head coach and quarterback. He just showed me grit and toughness, work ethic. His teammates love him. All the things that come with that position, he exuded those traits for sure."

Fields will have some weapons around him this season that should help the offense improve.

"The skill you put around a quarterback is awesome that we're doing this offseason. D.J. is one of those big pieces that we did acquire. D.J. is a great receiver. He's got great yardage after catch, great receiving yards per catch, all those things. He's a better person, though. I got a chance to eat dinner with him and visit with his family, and he's an outstanding young man."

Overall, the Chicago Bears have reason to be optimistic about their future, with Justin Fields at quarterback. With his impressive physical abilities and strong work ethic, Fields has the potential to be a game-changer for the team. However, success will depend on the team's ability to improve in all areas of the game and put together a cohesive, competitive unit on the field.

Fans can look forward to the upcoming season and the start of OTAs on May 22nd, and stay tuned to ChicagoBearsHQ.com for all the latest news and updates on their favorite team.
