Justin Fields is going to need a lot more help

Justin Fields is the last quarterback the Chicago Bears will try.

The team’s loyal fans are hoping he will end their long-running struggles in the position that dates back to the late 1980s.

They are banking on his versatility to find success in the NFL.

Last season, he showed a glimpse of that talent by finishing with 1,870 passing yards, 420 rushing yards and nine total touchdowns.

But the clips from their last pre-season game don’t paint a promising picture.

Warren Sharp of NBC Sports said, “Watch this show, Justin Fields in the heat nonstop.”

Yes, he has the speed to evade incoming defensive players.

But at some point, these gamers will get to him and steal the opportunity to make games.

It’s depressing to note that the Bears’ offensive linemen offer little opposition against the Seattle Seahawks’ rushers.

These defenders come cleanly out of the line of scrimmage to chase Fields.

As a result, the quarterback must make a play quickly, which often leads to misses or broken plays.

Luckily for the Bears, they won that game against the Seahawks, 27-11.

However, the Bears’ offensive line approach won’t work against better opposition.

A punishing schedule awaits

The Bears line should regroup and better protect Fields.

After all, they will face the San Francisco 49ers’ punishing defensive line in Week 1.

Also on the schedule are the New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins and Dallas Cowboys.

They will also face the Philadelphia Eagles and the Buffalo Bills in the second half of the regular season.

Having that same performance against Seattle won’t be enough to stop those elite teams from breaking into the pocket.
