LOOK: There’s a Justin Fields documentary, and it’s well worth your time

By Phil Harrison

It’s no secret that the city of Chicago and its broad shoulders are ready to embrace all things Justin Fields. A franchise that’s had worse luck than Wile e Coyote chasing the Roadrunner at the quarterback position has been waiting for someone — anyone — with any kind of buzz like what Fields has to take over as the face of the franchise.

Eventually (and maybe sooner than you think), Fields is going to get that chance, and it’ll be up to him to somehow live up to all the expectations and hype that can go with being in the Chicago market.

However, there’s a whole backstory to how Fields came onto the scene that maybe you simply don’t know about. I mean sure, you know he was a five-star prospect out of Kennesaw, Georgia that committed and played for the Bulldogs his freshman year, then famously transferred to Ohio State where he became pretty special. All of that is in the public’s eye.

But there’s much more to the story that we’re not going to spoil for you here. What we can do, however, is point you in the direction to get the scoop yourself thanks to a documentary produced by The Overtime. Part 1 was released on YouTube, and if you like it you can continue to follow more episodes.

I know we’ll stay on it because the first one was highly entertaining. We’ll also be following Fields’ journey with the Bears in the NFL and feel pretty good about ending that Chicago Bears and Ohio State quarterback curse.
