Former NFL general manager Mike Tannenbaum thinks the Chicago Bears are being "reckless" with second-year quarterback Justin Fields.
He believes the organization needs to seriously improve its offensive line to protect the "great talent" Fields brings to the table.
"[Fields] can turn into David Carr. He has no chance of getting through 17 games," Tannenbaum said at the get up.
"Steps one, two and three of developing a quarterback are safety."
The NFL world took to Twitter to react to the statement.
"If your roster is completely barren don't draft QBs in that year
, It almost guarantees a failed pick," agreed one fan.
"Oh, I can't wait until Fields shuts down these guys this season," said another.
"It's a shame how little attention these dudes get because they had their legend in May and kept drilling it into the ground.
There were two real pressures and one was because Herbert did a terrible job lifting it,
The other defensive player just won," said another.
Fields got some limited action during Thursday night's preseason matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
During one of his series on the field, the former No. 11 pick experienced some serious pressure.
Fields was dismissed 36 times in his rookie season through 12 games and 10 starts.
