There are a bunch of fun nuggets and tidbits that make the Justin Fields installment of the Bears’ Meet The Rookies series worthwhile.
For instance, Fields re-visits his time as a rising high schooler. He discusses how his French bulldog Uno got its name. There is also mention of hidden talents. And I think the moments of reflection from Fields’ father are neat, too. The behind-the-scenes perspective in these is always a treat.
But these words made the hair on my neck stand up:
“I’m definitely ready. I think if there as anybody in this draft class that was ready for this position, I think there’s nobody else but me, to be honest with you. I’ve just been groomed for this moment my whole life.”
Well, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to go to battle with Justin Fields as the Bears’ QB1. And while Chicago’s brass will do its best to slow-play Fields’ arrival, he carries a presence that strongly suggests he’ll be taking snaps in games of consequence sooner, rather than later.
