Fields digs in to Bears-Packers rivalry


The Bears used their first round pick wisely when they drafted a desperately needed quarterback in the first round. And, not only did they draft a quarterback, they drafted star Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields who now has something in common with Bears fans: disliking Green Bay.

While practicing throws last week at Halas Hall, Bears quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo asked Fields who Fields' center was at Ohio State as seen in this video tweeted out by Bears Film Room.

"Josh Myers," Fields said.

When asked if Myers got drafted, Fields replied, "To the wrong team."

"Who's that?" DeFilippo asked.

"The Packers," Fields said without hesitation.

Myers was drafted by the Packers in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fields is already making a name for himself in Chicago and he hasn't even played in his first NFL game yet. He currently has the top third, fourth and fifth selling jerseys in the NFL, leading all rookies and quarterbacks on the list.
