Jaxon Smith-Njigba Is Brutally Honest Regarding Shane Waldron And Justin Fields


In a recent interview conducted by CHGO Sports, Adam Hoge and Mark Carmen had the opportunity to chat with Jaxon Smith-Njigba from the Seattle Seahawks and Chris Olave from the New Orleans Saints. Both former Ohio State Buckeyes wide receivers who played with Justin Fields in college. While the conversation was generally fun and relaxed, there was a notable moment when they were asked about the potential impact of the new offensive coordinator, Shane Waldron, on Chicago and quarterback Justin Fields. Chris Olave’s reaction, or rather his lack of response, raised some concerns.

Jaxon Smith-Njigba silence was loud

One might interpret JSN’s reaction as that of a rookie wide receiver disappointed in the lack of involvement in the game plans in 2023. With players like Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf commanding attention in Seattle, it’s understandable that he may have felt neglected by Shane’s offensive scheme. Regardless, this isn’t the best endorsement for the Bears new offensive coordinator. Nevertheless, the games must be played, and Shane Waldron played a crucial role in revitalizing QB Geno Smith, leading to a notable resurgence in his career over the last couple seasons. Although Waldron isn’t solely responsible for this improvement, his contribution cannot be ignored. JSN also showed support for Justin Fields, joining many other players throughout the league who’ve done the same. After watching this video, I find myself torn between questioning JSN or Shane Waldron more. Only time will tell.

Irregardless of a rookie WR’s musings. Shane made Geno F-ing Smith into a twice consecutive pro-bowl participant. Again GENO F-ing SMITH!!! I believe in Shane, and believe he was hired to do, and will succeed prodigiously, doing the exact same with Justin Fields. I just wish he was hired after a new HC were to be named. Otherwise, if Flus doesn’t lead us to the playoffs, Shane could be a lame-duck by association. JMO. 🐻⬇️

Not everyone is going to love their coaches. That’s fine.

Let’s see if Waldron helps us win games. If he does, it’s a brilliant move by Poles. If he doesn’t, it’s an abject failure. Things will sort themselves out, for good or ill.

are you just so sad not everybody shares your wittle opinion? I’m ready to roll with whichever route Poles directs the team. But a part of me is really hoping Fields sticks around just so I can watch all the CW fanboys in this community cry like a baby haha.

Here we go again…this is an article all the morons that have a man-crush on sack master Fields have been looking for. They are (secretly) pining for another OC they can blame if the Bears decide to keep JF. And when JF has his typical, bottom third of the NFL, pitiful performance (and he will) they can again blame the OC. The Bears MUST use their #1 pick to finally get a QB that can at least rank in the top half of NFL QBs. Not a big reach given the Bears have had the #1 pick two years in… Read more »

@Unluckyirishman, I actually live in Washington and you wrong about not many fans in Seattle caring about Waldron being gone. One of my best friends is a season ticket holder and he wasn’t happy at all. Neither were the majority of the Seahawk fans I know personally. He wasn’t my first choice, but I’ll give him a chance. Anyone who can elevate Geno Smith to relevancy deserves the benefit of the doubt in my book. I don’t think it got much coverage because around the same time people in Washington had just lost Pete Carroll and University of Washington head… Read more »
