Luke Getsy shoots back to the idea that the Bears' offense reflects a lack of faith in Justin Fields

BY V. CARBONNEAU    SEPTEMBER 30, 2022  (11:38)
With Luke Getsy as coordinator, the Bears have thrown the fewest passes through the first three games of a season since the 1982 Patriots. Twenty-nine quarterbacks, including Daniel Jones and Mitch Trubisky, have already completed more passes this season than Fields has thrown (45).

However, I don't think we should push the panic button just yet. According to Getsy, none of this should be interpreted as a lack of trust in Fields.

«No, no, not at all,» Getsy said Wednesday. «We do what we feel is best... to help us win games.»

"We do what we feel is best to help our team play a team football game to help us win games. ... We got to do what's best across the board to take advantage of matchups."



Just last week, he called run plays on third-and-six, 10 and 17 as the Bears squeaked by the Texans despite Fields completing 8 of 17 passes for 106 yards with two interceptions for a 27.7 passer rating, which is the lowest by any NFL starter this season.

«It's not the sexiest thing in the world to run the ball on third-and-six, but when we feel like we have [advantages], we're going to do whatever it takes,» he said. «Whether it's a run, a pass, a screen whatever it is, we're going to do it. We put a lot of time into trying to find those matchups for ourselves.»

Although I trust Getsy to make the right calls and give this team the most chance to win games, I would still like to see Fields put in a position where he can make more plays and show why he was drafted as high as he was.
