Fields has had good and bad moments while completing 53 of 99 passes for 632 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions, and that’s OK for a first-year player who came into an offense that had troubles long before the Bears drafted him. Bears coaches this week praised Fields’ growth in his second- and third-level progressions, his increased communication with his teammates and his improved play speed. They also like how he accepts criticism and learns from his mistakes, which have included taking 18 sacks for 163 yards lost, some at key moments in the loss to the Packers. Fields has been honest about his play, saying this week he needs to be better at stacking positive plays and not making bad plays worse. Bumps along the way are to be expected, and for now, it’s about measuring the weekly progress.
