Colin Cowherd Rips Justin Fields After He Ranked Himself As All-Time Great

Colin Cowherd: “I think of all the quarterbacks in the NFL with the most pressure, it’s not on Dak, it’s on Justin Fields. For years and years when I criticized Baker Mayfield, many of you confused ‘ego’ for ‘confidence’. I thought Baker had too much ego. I thought Johnny Manziel had too much ego. You say ‘I LOVE MY QUARTERBACK TO BE CONFIDENT!’ Mahomes is, but he has self-awareness. Brady, Peyton Manning, Joe Burrow, Lamar Jackson—they have confidence, I don’t see their ego. I don’t love this [Justin Fields saying he’s a top 5 running QB all-time] for a quarterback who is 5-20 and right now is closer to a bust than a star. Lamar is an MVP, Cam is an MVP, Vick is a four-time Pro Bowler, Steve Young is a Super Bowl winner, and Justin Fields is 5-20. I got a guy with a quarterback rating in the 70s, a guy that’s now hurt, and they ended last season with a ten-game losing streak. You know who else I would put in that list? Russell Wilson, you know, Super Bowl winner? If you’re a great running quarterback, you win games. I’ve always been 60/40 on if Justin Fields is going to succeed. I’m coming back 5% [after Fields’ comments]. I’m 55/45 he’s going to succeed. He lacks a little self-awareness. I know Chicago will go crazy but right now Justin Fields is a bust, he’s 5-20 with a ten-game losing streak, and with a passer rating in the 70s. Last year was he not easily the worst quarterback in that division? Wasn’t Aaron, wasn’t Goff, wasn’t Kirk Cousins. Right now he’s a YouTube quarterback, his highlights are great.” (Full Segment Above) 

Watch Colin Cowherd discuss comments Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields recently made anointing himself as a ‘top five rushing quarterback in NFL history’, as Colin is concerned that the 5-20 career QB could be on an alarming path towards a Baker Mayfield-esque ego while also completely lacking any self-awareness.

Check out the segment above as Colin details why he thinks Fields is under the most pressure of any quarterback in the league this season, and says Fields is a lot closer to being a ‘bust’ than a star.
