Justin Fields Made A Surprising Admission On Loss To Packers


Justin Fields isn’t known for expressing his emotions outwardly in front of the cameras. Some people, as a result, make the mistake of thinking this means he doesn’t care. He could take it or leave it with football. That couldn’t be further from the truth. Fields is an ultra-competitor. He wants to win. That is the only thing that interests him. It is why he explained during his press conference on Wednesday that the lack of passing attempts (11 total) didn’t bother him.

He’d have gladly accepted that number or even fewer if it meant the Chicago Bears won the game on Sunday night. His frustration lay only with that. Fields hates losing. Hates it. From the way he spoke, it sounded like the mere thought of it made him physically ill. Yet one comment that stood out came when talking about that game specifically. Losing to the Packers hurt. It hurt more than any of the losses he suffered last season. The sting was so great that the young quarterback changed his work routine going into this week.

Justin Fields has fully embraced Chicago.

That includes the rivalry against the Packers. He’d already lost to them twice last year in frustrating fashion. Fields no doubt hoped he could finally slay that dragon. Getting blown out by double digits for the third straight time has to give the young man such a helpless feeling. He never lost that many times to any single opponent during his high school or college days. It burns him to think he can’t climb that mountain. His playing poorly on top of it made the feeling even worse.

The young man is becoming consumed with overtaking the Packers. That is a good thing. Other Bears quarterbacks never seemed to fully embrace the rivalry. They treated it as just another game. Justin Fields doesn’t see it that way. To him, they are the warden holding him in prison. The only way to gain free is by breaking out of the cage they’ve placed around the Bears for the past several years. If that means sacrificing more time and energy, then so be it.

I was born and raised in Chicago, but went to High School in Ohio. I am a HUGE Ohio State fan and therefore am a fan of Justin Fields. We all know last year was FUBAR! I felt sorry for Fields because what he had to endure, most of us did and rightfully so. Now we are 2 games into his 2nd season, just 2 frikin games, with an entirely new coaching staff, a brand new system, horrible OL in pass blocking, and a talent deprived WR corp. , All of this and some people are acting like last year… Read more »

Yes, this offense takes time to get going and a long time to master. Interestingly, it is the running game that usually takes longest to synch. However, our Bears seem to be figuring out the running game already. This thing might click a lot sooner than normal. Don’t underestimate the value of a guy like Patrick making the line calls as he has a ton of experience in this system. You have to get those right in order to have clean execution on any given play. This could be a fun week as things start to mesh.

I read somewhere that Denver played this type of offense and it wasn’t until week five I think when everything fell into place. Fields just needs time and experience. It is a new offensive scheme

Here’s the prob Michael – the bears have been so bad for so long the city has lost patience. That’s the issue. Here’s another tip – don’t diss the fans in your presser after your ‘shit the bed’ performance against the packers. Not a good look.

I think the other part is the lack of success in this organization. It’s unnecessary pressure on him. Cincinnati is decent town but what’s expected from them? They played well in the playoffs last year but who expected it? They aren’t a top contender this year. Mahomes had small expectations and so did Herbert. Lamar Jackson doesn’t have Chicagos media fan base on his butt too. You can say what you want but the pressure here in Chicago is greater then any other city. It’s almost like you can’t grow here! You have to be perfect. If you feel like… Read more »
