Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears blew it. General manager Ryan Pace will forever be haunted for his decision during the 2017 NFL Draft to take quarterback Mitch Trubisky over Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson.

In 2020, Trubisky is not a lock to start over Nick Foles. With a team with Super Bowl expectations heading into 2019, the Bears fell short of making the playoffs mainly because of their quarterback situation.

It seems head coach Matt Nagy would welcome a different quarterback. The Bears have a chance to make things right but would have to tank in 2020 to do so. Fields would be exactly what the Bears need. He has the raw talent and ability to be a superstar for years to come in this league. Fields could possibly be the closest player to a Mahomes or Watson projected to come out in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The scrambling quarterback would be a dream for Nagy who could call RPOs (run-pass option) plays and even trick plays to get the Bears back to creativity on offense as they were in 2018, the year the Bears won the NFC North posting a 12-4 record.
