It feels like only yesterday that Chicago Bears fans were celebrating the end of the Aaron Rodgers era. It was Justin Fields' time, and the Bears were finally going to dominate the rivalry with the Green Bay Packers.
Fast forward to the current day. The Packers humiliated the Bears in the season opener, Baker Mayfield torched Chicago's defense in Week 2, and now Fields is throwing the coaching staff under the bus.
Get the popcorn ready, Packers fans, because the Bears are imploding. And it's only Week 3.
Justin Fields' comments about Bears coaching is great entertainment for Packers fans
Fields has thrown for 427 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions with a 70.7 rating in the Bears' opening two games. He threw a beautiful touchdown pass to Packers linebacker Quay Walker and another to Bucs pass rusher Shaquil Barrett.
He has thrown as many touchdown passes to the wrong team as he has to Bears players.
Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Fields said he felt "robotic" when he played last week, and he didn't hold back with comments about the Bears' coaching staff.
"It could be coaching. At the end of the day, they are doing their job when they are giving me what to look at, stuff like that. But at the end of the day, I can't be thinking about that when the game comes," said Fields. "I prepare myself throughout the week, and then when the game comes, it's time to play free at that point. Thinking less and playing more."
It's only Week 3, but the Bears are falling apart. And it's great entertainment for Packers fans.
This wasn't supposed to happen. All Packers fans heard about during the offseason was how we were going to see a breakout season from Fields now that he had a strong supporting cast.
We may actually be seeing that breakout season in Green Bay, where Jordan Love leads the NFL in touchdown passes and passer rating through two weeks, and he is yet to throw an interception.
The Bears have lost their past 12 games, their last win coming all the way back on October 24. Just two games into the new season, they are already falling apart.
