Some analysts and talking heads predicted the Chicago Bears to be in the mix to win the NFC North division this season.
They raved about some of their offseason acquisitions and how they could help Justin Fields, with some even predicting he would post MVP-caliber numbers.
Fast forward to today, and it’s safe to assume that all those predictions were wrong.
The Bears have been mediocre on both sides of the field, and they never put Fields in a position to succeed.
That’s why former NFL QB Dan Orlovsky believes there’s simply no way he’s going to be back with the Bears next season.
In the latest edition of “Get Up,” Orlovsky explained that Fields would only have a handful of games to come back from his thumb injury and prove to the team that he’s the right guy for the organization going forward.
"It's hard to envision Justin Fields as a Chicago Bear in 2024."

All things considered, and judging by the way the team has failed to use Fields to the best of his capacities, that’s right on point.
The Bears will most likely have two picks in the top three, and with USC star QB Caleb Williams likely to be the first guy taken off the board, it’s hard to think of the Bears passing on the chance to get him to give Fields another chance.
Fields has shown glimpses of great play and could still find plenty of success with a team that’s actually willing to let him roll out of the pocket.
That team won’t be the Bears.NEXT: Tyreek Hill Blames Teammate For His Fumble Against The Chiefs
