Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields is focusing on his third NFL season and decided to make a change in regards to his social media life. Fields deleted his social media accounts (especially Twitter), and he could be his own critic at various times.
Last week, he had a one-on-one interview with Dan Wiederer of the Chicago Tribune, and then Justin Fields shared his thoughts on Auducy’s original podcast Take The North.
Justin Fields said in regards to his social media accounts:
“I don’t look at it, to be honest. I deleted Twitter, I don’t have Twitter. All the trade stuff, (Darnell Mooney) talked to me the other day…I didn’t know any of it until he told me so I’m surprised sitting there. It’s just best not to look at that stuff.”
Fields, this season, wants to focus on being himself and raising his game to another level. A season ago, completed 60.4% of his passes for 2,242 passing yards, 17 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,143 yards on 160 carries and seven touchdowns. Justin Fields averaged 7.1 yards per carry.
He needs to prove this season that he can not only do it with his legs but also his arm. Justin Fields has a lot of critics entering this season, but some are also picking the Chicago Bears to be better because of him. All he wants to worry about is his teammates and his play. He also said in the interview:
“I’d say the people in the room, because they know what it’s supposed to look like. They know the conversations that go into the room with the read and stuff like that. And myself, to be honest. I know when I could be better. I just have an expectation for myself. I know what my ceiling is, how good I can be so I’m really hard on myself in terms of that stuff.”
Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears Need to Beat the Green Bay Packers This Weekend
One of the biggest headlines heading into Week 1 of the 2023 NFL regular season is Jordan Love vs. Justin Fields. Fields has been in the NFL for the last two seasons as the Bears’ primary starting quarterback, and Love is the starting quarterback for the Packers.
There is way more pressure for Justin Fields to perform than Jordan Love. The Packers have owned the Bears over the last four seasons. They have won eight straight games, and the last time Chicago won against Green Bay was the day the Chicago Bears clinched the NFC North in 2018.
If Justin Fields does not perform well this weekend, the media will be grueling. No wonder why he deleted his social media.
