Despite Justin Fields looking solid in his first win as a starting quarterback last weekend, Bears coach Matt Nagy remained firm that Andy Dalton was still the team’s starting quarterback when he returned from a leg injury.

But that charade didn’t last too long. Just two days after his Dalton declaration, Nagy changed course, announcing that Justin Fields would be the team’s QB1 going forward.

Justin Fields revealed that he was told he would be the QB1 on Tuesday night. And with his parents in town, they wanted to go out to celebrate the news.
But Fields opted to stay in with his dog to watch some game film, and his parents had to go without him.

Justin Fields is far from a polished quarterback. But the raw talent and work ethic appears to be there.
And for Chicago Bears fans, they’ll be ecstatic to get a glimpse at their future for the remainder of the season.
