It’s easy for fans to get excited about Justin Fields’ practice efforts. He has made some breath-taking throws, runs that make your eyes get big, and it makes it easy to dream on a brighter future with No. 1 as QB1 in the future. All in all, Fields has fans in a frenzy.
And if that wasn’t enough, the assembled media at Halas Hall who had eyes on him today were in a tizzy, too:
Well there’s no doubt the best QB on either field today was Justin Fields. Just completed a nearly perfect red zone period. Only incompletion was a drop by Riley Ridley in the back corner of the end zone on a good ball. All of Fields’ talent was on display. #Bears

Justin Fields absolutely masterful in a six-play low red zone period. Three TD passes and an astute tuck-and-run TD.

28. If Justin Fields makes it big this season, we'll look back on Thursday's red-zone drill as The Moment it was clear he was destined for greatness — a dominant performance with six TDs that displayed every facet of his game — run, pass, rollout — that makes him a lethal weapon.

Justin Fields was on fire during a deep red zone period vs. the Dolphins. Had three touchdown passes and a nifty out-of-the-pocket scramble that resulted in a rushing TD (should note that QBs are not to be touched in practice).

Second day of the Bears-Dolphins joint practices is now over. I spent most of the day watching the Bears' offense vs. the Dolphins' defense. Just two thoughts:
1. Justin Fields was the best player on Field 3.
2. Andy Dalton's struggles were real vs. the Dolphins' starters.

Justin Fields had himself a day today. Dominated in RZ drills, looked sharp with his throws. Only blemish was a near INT. But a hell of a day for the QB. #Bears

*Takes a moment to fan self*
I don’t want to put the cart in front of the horse. But I can’t help but smile from ear-to-ear while reading these tweets. This feels like the Bears have something special cooking right now. And while we’ll need to wait until the full meal comes through, I’ll settle on these cookies for the time being.
