Justin Fields is Already Back to Work
The NFL closed the books on a remarkable 2022 season eight days ago with a sensational Super Bowl featuring the Chiefs and Eagles. It was a fun game, to be sure. However, I think I’d enjoy it more if the Bears were putting up 38 points and hoisting the Lombardi Trophy after a game-winning field goal. But maybe that’s just me.
Anyway, if Chicago’s football team wants to get back to the mountaintop for the first time since the calendar flipped to 1986, it’ll begin with QB1 leading the charge.
And on that note, Bears quarterback Justin Fields is already back at it:
There really is no offseason if you’re an NFL player. Sure, there is some downtime here and there. But these guys work year-round to put on a show for us every week. Not only do I appreciate good work ethic, I love that it so often yields good results. Just think about all the offseason work Fields put in last year and how he made an early good impression on the new regime. Then, remember the improvements he made as a second-year QB. There is more work to be done, to be sure. But Fields already cooking up workouts has me feeling good about the future.
And to think, the best is yet to come.
Fields told Windy City Gridiron’s Bill Zimmerman that he’ll be organizing receiver workouts again. He was the maestro behind last year’s workouts with Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet. There were even stories about Fields and Mooney burning the midnight oil to get to know their new offense. Remember the mechanical changes Fields was working on last year? There will be more of that this offseason. Fields told CBS Sports he’ll be working on being able to keep his mechanics from breaking down late in the season. Heady stuff if you ask me. All in all, it is good to see Fields back at it for another offseason.
