Do not question Justin Fields’ accuracy. The Bears rookie absolutely embarrassed someone who called him out for not being accurate enough for a cross-bar challenge.
Fields displayed an incredibly accurate touch during his days at college. During his stint in the NCAA, Fields had the highest accuracy on deep balls. 70% of his passing yards came on yards before the catch, once more leading all of the 2021 NFL QB Draft Prospects.
Pro Football Focus ran some stats on Justin Fields, and he graded out to be the most accurate quarterback since they started measuring completion percentage over expected (CPOE) in 2014.
Accuracy on intermediate and deep balls:
1. Joe Burrow (57%)
2. Justin Fields (56%)
3. Mac Jones (56%)
19. Trevor Lawrence (48%)

Justin Fields Drills The Cross-Bar Twice In A Row To Show A Doubter Up
As you should guess by now, you don’t want to test how accurate Justin Fields can really be. Yet, someone still decided it would be a good idea to challenge Fields. He ate his words very quickly:
“You won’t hit the cross-bar two times in a row.”

Justin Fields words afterwards were exactly what’d you expect from the 11th overall pick:
“Come on now. Stop playing with me.”
This probably teaches people a valuable lesson in that Fields is definitely an accurate quarterback. Of course, he still has to prove it on the field, but the tangibles are clearly there.
When Will Fields Start For The Chicago Bears? Fields Is Taking No Days Off This Summer
Fields is absolutely committed to becoming a starter at some point for the Chicago Bears. The rookie quarterback has already said that he’s planning to show up two weeks early to training camp.

On top of that, he’s not even going to let a day of vacation go by without him studying the playbook or doing something football related.
Fields is hungry to be the best he can possibly be. Matt Nagy and the Chicago Bears have committed to starting Andy Dalton for the beginning of the season, but if Fields can show up in training camp, he could be starting very soon.
Zero days off for @justnfields ‼️

He wants to earn that spot, and he’s doing everything in his power to make sure that the Bears players and coaches see just how bad he wants this.
