Justin Fields already hates the Green Bay Packers, and he has not played in an NFL game yet.
Fields was captured on camera talking to Bears quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator John DeFillipo during OTAs. When asked if his center at Ohio State Josh Myers got drafted, Fields responded that he got picked by the wrong team: The Packers. Even if it is already the oldest rivalry in the NFL, look at Fields adding some fuel to the fire before training camp begins.
Maybe Fields can be the quarterback Bears fans have been hoping for since the late Sid Luckman?
Justin Fields trolls the Green Bay Packers during Chicago Bears OTAs
Let’s be real. For as long as Aaron Rodgers can play at an elite level for the Packers, Green Bay will be the team to beat in the NFC North. However, this could be his last year with the organization. That would be fantastic news for the Bears, as Fields is easily the most talented quarterback in the division not named Rodgers. This could be the Bears’ division as early as next season for sure.
Ultimately, Fields faces a ton of pressure upon arrival in Chicago. Quarterbacking has been fleeting at best for this organization for the better part of a century. However, Fields starred in the midwest playing for blue-blood Ohio State. He never lost a regular-season game in two years quarterbacking Ohio State. If he gets the right support, he can be spectacular for the Bears.
It is great to see Fields already stirring the pot when it comes to the Bears vs. Packers rivalry.
