Bears overreactions: Is Fields being wasted in Chicago? originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago

Week 1’s overreactions brought sunshine, rainbows, and unicorns after the Bears’ win over the San Francisco 49ers.

This week’s edition gives us the other side of the coin following the Bears’ deflating 27-10 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Quarterback Justin Fields only threw the ball 11 times and only registered 17 dropbacks.

But when a coaching staff only asks you to throw the ball 11 times despite trailing by two scores for 35 minutes of the game, that says something. In my opinion, it says they have a lack of trust in his ability to win with his arm.

Yes, the Bears were running the ball effectively. But in the modern NFL, your franchise quarterback has to be able to throw you back into games.

Fields has the arm talent to do so. That’s never been the issue.

I wrote a long piece about the narrow road teams have to travel to get a highly drafted quarterback from prospect with potential to star. There are many pitfalls teams fall into, and Fields just might have found himself in the wrong situation.

It’s fair to wonder if the Bears are wasting Fields’ talent. In the offseason, Ryan Poles didn’t address the offensive line or skill positions effectively. It doesn’t appear that Eberflus and offensive coordinator Luke Getsy trust Fields enough to open up the offense.

A lot of signs point to the Fields-Bears marriage not working out.
