Justin Fields had people questioning his work ethic heading into the 2021 draft. When a guy like Urban Meyer publicly calls out the absurdity of such a statement, you know it’s probably not true. In the few months since joining the Chicago Bears, fans have realized what a workaholic their new quarterback is. He does not know the meaning of the word relaxation. Does he have a chance to practice, watch a movie or study the offense? He does it.
That didn’t change even though the team parted ways for their month-and-a-half break before training camp. While other players may choose to have a nice vacation to rest up, Fields doesn’t seem interested. He was spotted by his longtime train Simeon Kelley work on a treadmill. There are no days off for this guy. No one can say for sure if it will be good or not, but they also can’t say it doesn’t take the time.
Justin Fields is 100% committed to this task.
It is the most important. When the quarterback sets the tone for the work ethic, everyone else on the team should follow their example. This is where Fields separates from previous Bears QBs. While others like Jay Cutler and Mitch Trubisky worked hard, they never seemed to go all-in like Fields did. Matt Nagy has always talked about being obsessed with this job. This kid is living proof of that concept.
Head coach Matt Eberflus said he wants the players to be rested and ready for training camp, but also fit. They will run a lot. Justin Fields took those words to heart. He looks to be in fantastic condition and ready for July 28 when training begins. Excitement is building for what is to come. Expectations are low for the quarterback this year. If anything, it should serve him well. This will serve as a great motivation for him to play good football.
