The Chicago Bears were expected to have a bounce-back season in 2023.
They made some major moves in the offseason, including flipping the No. 1 pick for DJ Moore and some more assets to build around Justin Fields.
But their offense has looked subpar through the first two weeks of the season, with Fields struggling to produce at the same level he did in the second half of last season.
To make things even worse, Fields seemingly threw his coaches under the bus, blaming them for his “robotic” play and stating that he needs to think less and play more.
That’s why ESPN analyst Mike Greenberg came to his defense, stating that even though he shouldn’t have said that, the Bears are to blame for his struggles.

He called the organization a “dumpster fire” and stated that they haven’t done absolutely anything to help him and make the most of his talents.
Fields has always been an elite prospect, dating back to his days in high school.
But as good and talented as he is, he’s never been a pocket passer or a flat-footed, rather traditional kind of quarterback.
Granted that he’s failed to make some throws and reads, but the Bears offense is doing him a disservice.
Also, even if they were moving the chains, they’ve struggled mightily on the defensive side of the field as well.
It’s been two weeks, and they have plenty of time to turn things around, but they’ll need to hit the drawing board again and start from scratch.NEXT: Bears Re-Sign Familiar Veteran QB
