The Chicago Bears' current season performance falls short of expectations with a 3-7 record, despite a promising free agency and draft period. General Manager Ryan Poles has expressed continued confidence in head coach Matt Eberflus and the team's direction. However, the team's quarterback situation, particularly Justin Fields' future as the starter, is under scrutiny. Eberflus has been notably direct in stating that the remaining seven games of the season are critical for Fields to demonstrate his potential as the lead quarterback.

While Fields has had moments of success, his overall inconsistency has raised doubts about his long-term role with the Bears. In two games against Denver and Washington, Fields achieved eight touchdowns with only one interception. Unfortunately, his performance in the subsequent four games was less impressive, with three touchdowns and five interceptions. This fluctuation has been an ongoing issue since the previous year and could impact his position with the team.
Eberflus' stance is based on fair expectations. Despite not making harsh statements, his message is clear: Fields needs to prove his reliability and consistent high performance to secure his job. The final games of the season will be pivotal in determining whether Fields can be the quarterback the Bears need, as the franchise is not shy about making changes if necessary. The team's commitment to Fields, which has been strong since their pairing, may waver if he cannot meet the organization's standards, as ultimately, their decisions are driven by performance and results.
