Chicago Bears offense. Those words can be presented to children to teach them the meaning of the word oxymoron.
It is certain that the Bears play in an unpredictable climate. Near the end of September, summer break and whatever can happen, this leads to some bad playing conditions at Soldier Field, but can’t because that’s the only reason their offense can’t get past the top for most of the past 100 years. Erik Kramer, Jay Cutler, Marc Trestman, Matt Nagy – no one can turn this around while Brett Favre and Tom Brady attack winter weather like Homer Simpson on his snow plow.
Justin Fields is the second quarter the Bears have traded to draft in five years. No one but Ryan Pace liked the move to pick Mitchell Trubisky, but Fields represents hope that The Bears have been at full-back since Jim McMahon was named Offensive Rookie of the Year in the shortened 1982 season in attack. With a top-potential midfielder playing in an attack built by a turn-caller for Andy Reid, the ball was eventually supposed to fly through the lake-effect snow.
Instead, that year turned out to be a disaster. Fields’ biggest problem is that he holds the ball for too long, and the Bears don’t have the offensive line for that to work. Nagy did so little to make a rookie’s life easier that it could almost be seen as negligence. Last year was so bad that in Fields’ best run of the season, Monday Night Football against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bears lost in what was one of the The worst official game I watched in any sport.
The Bears cleaned the house after the season, getting rid of Nagy and Pace. They hired former Indianapolis Colts . offensive coordinator Matt Eberfluss as a coach, but they also brought in Luke Getsy – Aaron Rodgers’ former QB coach – to run the offense.
“I think Luke is a great mastermind,” Fields speak to NBC Sports’ Peter King. He is a great attacking coach. He’s probably the best defender coach I’ve ever had in my life. “
That’s how Fields answers the question “Is this offense right for you?” With all the movies revolving around Steven Jenkins and the bears’ Realizing the lack of depth at the wide receiver, there’s real positivity that will make Bears fans finally smile about this season’s team.
Of course, Fields won’t say anything negative about the new coaching staff a month before the season kicks off, but all he has to say is that Getsy is a great coach and he’s enjoyed working with him. he. He is not having to get past Getsy that way, means this season is off to a much better start than 2021. Last year, Nagy was adamant about getting Andy Dalton to start the season, after former Cincinnati Bengal failed to do so. What to do with the Cowboys attack in 2020 following Dak Prescott’s injury and failure to make it to the knockout stages in a tournament that the Washington Soccer Team later won with a 7-9 record.
The field is like a person starting a new job and finally able to take a deep breath after leaving a harsh working environment. His play in training camp has slowly gotten better, and his best practice was on a Saturday when he was without four of the top six wide receivers and three attacking offensive linemen. broadcast. In an exercise called “Move it,” fouled with the ball on their 30-yard line and had to go into goal with 55 seconds on the clock and no timeout. With plenty of redundancy on the field, Fields can still accomplish the goal.
The regular season is near, but still a long way from the Bears’ first regular game on Sunday, September 11. It will take half the season to gauge his progress, and the Bears are still there. some problems in their hands with Jenkins and also the All-Pro Roquan Smith hosting property. There aren’t many expectations from the Bears in 2022, but Fields feels as good as he does about his new offensive coordinator being perhaps the best the franchise and its fans can have from training camp.
Maybe, just maybe, there will be an attack at the last Soldier Battlefield that can go smoothlyclear, sleet and snow.
