Heading into his third season with the Chicago Bears, it’s safe to say that Justin Fields has not quite lived up to expectations in the passing game despite flashes of brilliance and some electric performances on the ground. But it sure sounds like one former quarterback and current analyst is expecting big things from Fields this upcoming season.

During an appearance on ESPN this week, former NFL quarterback and current analyst Dan Orlovsky claimed that Justin Fields will be a contender for the MVP award this season after the team made some offseason moves to to surround him with talent.

“Justin Fields is going to be in the MVP conversation this year because he finally has the right people around him to allow his talents to excel,” Orlovsky said, according to Daniel Greenberg on Twitter.

It’s definitely a bold prediction for Field as he heads into his third season with the Bears, and the NFL world had plenty to say about this claim on Twitter with many pointing out that Orlovsky was once very critical of Fields.

It will certainly be interesting to see how Fields performs this season especially now that he has some better weapons at wide receiver.
