These last five weeks have made one thing clear. Justin Fields is the best runner at the quarterback position in the National Football League. Now, let’s not confuse that statement with him being simply a running quarterback. Fields is far from being a one-dimensional player. But as a runner, he has been dominating. His 749 rushing yards is sixth-most in the NFL, and Fields’ 555 rushing yards over the last five games is the most by a quarterback in the Super Bowl era. Fields is different. There is no question about that. However, Fields’ dominance on the ground has brought into question his overall production in the passing game. Even though he has thrown for eight touchdowns compared to two…

Two plays before Ihmir Smith-Marsette had the ball stolen from him, the Vikings nearly had the game won. On first-and-10 from the Chicago 36-yard line and with two minutes left in Sunday’s game, Za’Darius Smith sacked Justin Fields and forced a fumble. A scrum of players jumped on the ball but Lucas Patrick recovered it. Fields faced pressure again on second-and-19, when a Vikings defender dove at his legs, but the second-year quarterback stayed composed and completed a pass to David Montgomery for a 21-yard gain. Even though the game ended a play later with the strip-sack fumble, it was how Fields handled the second-and-long situation that stood out the most to offensive coordinator Luke Getsy. “Honestly, the biggest takeaway…

Let’s try starting something new throughout this Bears season. Each week, about halfway through, I want to share my takeaways from the previous game, observations on the next opponent and highlight what was said from coach Matt Eberflus, quarterback Justin Fields and from the locker room. We will call this Moreano’s Midweek Update for now, but I’m always up for suggestions. To begin, let’s revisit the 27-10 loss to the Packers on Sunday Night Football one last time.  WEEK 2: BEARS VS. PACKERS Justin Fields did not have his best performance. There is no other way of putting it. Even though he threw the ball 11 times, there were opportunities to make plays. So it’s discouraging to see Fields play…

Welcome to my weekly Chicago Bears Redzone Report where I take a deep dive into every red zone possession on both sides of the ball. A team’s success or failure inside the red zone has a strong correlation to its overall performance. In many ways, it’s do or die inside the 20. I want to take some time every week...

Justin Fields’ first completed pass in the preseason win against the Browns on Saturday night went to his fullback, Khari Blasingame.  The play went for six yards on second-and-4, giving the Bears a fresh set of downs. Then Fields hit Darnell Mooney for five more yards on the play immediately after. Two plays later on a first-and-20, Fields threw an accurate pass to his left to Dante Pettis before he came out of his break, good for 14 yards. On the following play to his right, Cole Kmet caught an 8-yard pass to again give the offense another set of downs. Then finally Fields hit Ryan Griffin on a 22-yard strike for a touchdown. On the 7-play, 80-yard drive, five…

LAKE FOREST — If you have been to one of the Bears’ 15 training camp practices, you will notice there are two scoreboards located in between the four fields at Halas Hall. And depending on the day, the time and number of timeouts will be different on the scoreboards. That’s because throughout training camp Bears coach Matt Eberflus has made it a focus to practice situational football. Even offensive coordinator Luke Getsy, who transitioned over from a well-oiled offensive unit in Green Bay, is seeing how much emphasis is placed during these portions of practice. “I mean we’ve done more situational football here, in the time that we’ve been here, than I’ve ever been a part of,” Getsy said. “Not that…
