Michael Vick Sends Message To Justin Fields


Many people have differing opinions about what the Chicago Bears should do regarding their quarterback situation. During a recent one-on-one interview on the Green Light Podcast with Michael Vick, Chris Long asked Vick about Justin Fields. Vick shared some intriguing thoughts about the Bears quarterback.

“I really want him to take that next step.. I think he is more than capable. And I know you can only go as far as what your offensive coordinator give to you. But there is times when you can go outside of that. He is so skilled, they should be in the the playoffs or competiting to be in the playoffs towards the end of the season.”

Michael Vick recognizes Justin Fields talent and the challenges he faced under his former offensive coordinator, Luke Getsy. Despite this, Vick believes great players can overcome obstacles and perform at a high level. Although the Chicago Bears were in playoff contention late in the season, their chances were slim. This raises the question: should the Bears commit to Fields for the upcoming season? The timing might not be ideal for Fields, as he could be a victim of circumstances if Chicago decides to move on from him. Vick went on to talk about his former team the Atlanta Falcons. And the fact is Fields could flourish with a fresh start back home with Atlanta, given their abundance of offensive weapons. The upcoming combine will provide more clarity, and discussions about the Bears quarterback situation will start to slowly reveal itself.

The truth about Justin Fields and Caleb Williams..

@Arnie, Thanks for your statistical analysis. When you put everything into perspective about a team and the QB, I believe you get a more complete picture of a QB’s value. As bad as the Bears offense has been under Nagy and Getsy, Fields still found wasy to continue his growth and improvement. Those that only look at 4th quarter failures and disregard the entire body of work are the ones that are missing the potential that Fields brings to the team. How many IMPOSSIBLE escapes from the rush did he thrill the fans with, keeping the chains moving? I dare… Read more »

Trading J Fields could easily be the beginning of the end for R Poles. Poles trades J Fields and Fields with a better coaching system goes on to win divisional games, make the post season or win/lead a team to the SB and the media darling CW turns into J Manziel II, goodbye R Poles after year 4! And the QB carousel starts again!

@Slip Knotz @Tred I thought this was interesting given the talk about QB’s needing to move the chains. I pulled up some numbers looking at 1st down data. First, for total team 1st downs, less penalty 1st downs, the best team in the league was Buffalo with an average of 21 per game. The Bears were 12th best with an average of 18 first downs per game. (For what it’s worth, the Jets were the worst at 13.7 and league average for all 32 teams was 17.52/game.) So, the Bears as a team were above average and basically top 1/3.… Read more »

@Tred agreed I don’t see how Vick has helped Fields. The NFL requires a whole lot of unsexy timing throws in order to move the chains. Sure Fields is a great athlete and what can happen under pressure is a roller-coaster, but that is not what NFL coaches desire. Brock Purdy came very close to sending Mahomes home but the Niners Defense couldn’t close the deal. Mahomes threw a lot of short yardage, quick decision balls that you don’t really see in Fields or Vick’s highlight reels. I’m not sure the advice of “you just be you” is working in… Read more »

Over the past several decades, we have heard thousands of “opinions” about who is good and who isn’t amount draft picks. In everything we do, the raw materials are important, but the minds that utilize the raw materials place their stamp on our world. Years ago running the football was how you won. Jim Brown made Cleveland significant that way, but in the 60s, teams started using quarterbacks to throw. Still, college coaches preached only 3 things could happen when you threw and two of them were bad. From Vick, Randall Cunningham, through Lamar Jackson to Fields, the minds (offensive.… Read more »
