The Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will face off in Week 18 in a “win and in” scenario for the Packers. Coming off their dominant 33-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings, the Packers control their own destiny to the post-season.
The only thing standing in their way? Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears. Today, one of the Bears star players made a pretty shocking statement about Fields.
Chicago Bears Wide Receiver D.J. Moore Makes Emphatic Statement About Justin Fields Prior To Green Bay Packers Matchup
According to Ari Meirov of The 33rd Team:
Bears WR DJ Moore on Justin Fields and his future:
“He’s ‘Him.’ I want him to be the quarterback. I said what I said; now it’s on the higher-ups. It’s up to them.”
The progress Fields has made so far has not been impressive. During his 12 starts, he threw for 2,414 yards, 16 touchdowns, and nine interceptions. His completion percentage (60.4 percent) is roughly comparable to his performance in 2022 (60.4 percent), and his QBR has fallen from 56.3 percent to 46.3 percent.
You get sold on him again after a performance like Week 17 when he defeated the Atlanta Falcons 37-17. He completed 20-of-32 passing attempts for 268 yards and a touchdown. He also ran for 45 yards and one score on 11 carries. Fans will get enthralled by his highlight runs or above average performance here and there but will forget he is 10-27 as a starter in this league. That includes an 0-5 record against Green Bay.
Chicago will have the number one overall pick in the 2024 NFL Draft (via the Carolina Panthers) as well as another mid-round pick due to their 7-9 record (currently). If the Bears decide to trade down and acquire more assets for Justin Fields and this offense instead of investing in a new franchise quarterback, it could set their team back another 4-5 years.
