The Chicago Bears are relying on Justin Fields to end up being the franchise quarterback they will have such a long time been looking for, but it will likely be problematic for him to call home around expectations given the talent around him.

That has been on full display through the opening drive of Thursday’s preseason game contrary to the Seattle Seahawks.

Fields threw seven times on the main one possession he played and seemingly had to perform for his life on every drop back that wasn’t a rollout. To his credit, he still led the Bears into scoring position before Cairo Santos capped the drive with a field goal.


Fields rolling out is really a thing of beauty. @justnfields

A rollout 19-yard pass to tight end Cole Kmet was the main play of the drive, nonetheless it was the offensive line problems for Chicago that caught the attention of a lot of viewers:

It sure seems that when the Bears don’t move the pocket, there won’t be considered a pocket for Justin Fields.

Poor Justin Fields can’t even get his returner to open a preseason game without fumbling. Free this man

#Bears passing game attempting to stretch the field but their protection isn’t holding up up to now.

It is important for the Bears this year is Fields’ capability to make strides in his second year. In the end, this roster is definately not a brilliant Bowl contender, and his long-term ceiling is something of a light shining at the end of the tunnel for a team which could finish in last invest the NFC North.

Yet making those necessary strides will undoubtedly be even more difficult if he never has plenty of time to throw and read opposing defenses.

The offensive line can look to improve before Chicago’s preseason finale at the Cleveland Browns on Aug. 27. The Seahawks finish their preseason on the highway aswell and face the Dallas Cowboys on Aug. 26.
