Chicago Bears release a quarterback after Justin Fields controversial comments

Wednesday saw the Chicago Bears fire a quarterback after Justin Fields criticized the coaching staff.

Fields blamed Bears coaching for his offensive troubles this season. He particularly criticized his pocket passer training.

Fields told reporters after practice that his words were not a criticism of the coaching staff, according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin.

“I’m not blaming coaches. Never will I blame coaches or teammates. 

Whatever happens in a game, I'll accept responsibility.

I'm not concerned about a dropped pass that should have been passed. Put it on me.

For the Bears' first two games, Peterman has been active.

Bears emergency QB3 Tyson Bagent, who escaped the 53-man cuts in August, is inactive.
