Mike Martz Continues to Absolutely Trash Chicago Bears Starting Quarterback Justin Fields

Did Justin Fields do something to Mike Martz we don’t know about?

One of the people doubting Chicago Bears starting Quarterback Justin Fields is former Rams coach Mike Martz, who led the team to one Super Bowl title. Since Martz also worked for the 49ers as an offensive coordinator back in 2008, and for the Bears as an offense coordinator in 2010–11, the former NFL coach was asked his thoughts about the performances from the two quarterbacks during their Week 1 matchup while speaking on The 33rd Team.

Needless to say the now-retired coach is not a big fan of either Justin Fields nor Trey Lance.

“I’m just shocked, shocked at the Bears,” Martz said about Fields. “I mean they took this quarterback, they went up and spent a lot to get him, and he was. … Less than remarkable would be the kindest thing that you could say about him. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen such a bad performance by a quarterback in his opening performance of the season like that. He was just completely awful.”

Even though the Bears beat the 49ers 19–10 on Sunday, Fields only completed eight out of 17 pass attempts for 121 yards. He threw two touchdowns and one interception.

The win wasn’t enough for Mike Martz to be impressed by Fields.  He also completely ripped Trey Lance too:

“He’s not particularly a good guy running with the football,” Martz said. “And, based on what I saw today, he missed two guys completely by themselves. … I know this, he can only go up, he can only get better, because you can’t get any worse than what he did today. I’ve never liked him, I still don’t like him.

“I’d like to know what he does so well because he’s not a great passer, doesn’t have good skills, takes him a long time to set himself and throw the football, misses easy throws, he’s not particularly a runner. Other than that, he’s a hell of a player.”

Martz seems like a lot of fun to talk football with.
