QB isn't even a need in Chicago.  The question is whether you would prefer to pay Fields and surround him with elite cheap talent, or move onto a cheap QB, and have more money to pay the surrounding talent.

It's a tough call.

Trade Fields for whatever you can get. He's a passable quarterback, but it's not worth $50 million next year.

unless Fields would agree to take a really team friendly extension deal, there's really no reason to keep him imo. you trade him for whatever you can get then take Maye at #1 or trade down and take one of the other QBs.

I honestly think that the odds of Fields turning into lets say a top 8-12 QB is as good or arguably better than Williams/Maye doing the same. Maye didn't really light it up this year and looked quite meh the back half of the season. 

The No.1 pick gives you leverage. You'll still have the picks to get future QB (with more pieces built around him if Fields doesn't work out) Offer a 3-4 year very team friendly extension (say Geno's contract, you even have leverage to go lower) in a take it or leave it. 

A big piece to Stroud's success was that he had the most time in the league to throw the ball. A big reason why Goff played in the NFC championship was that he has an ace OL in front of him. You might want to try to do the same 1st.

Yep. And while I think Purdy is significantly better than his draft position, he's not a 1st round kind of talent. He's successful because he's well-positioned to execute a system with a bunch of talent around him. 

The issue for Chicago is that they are a trash organization and can't seem to figure out how to assemble a complete roster. Throwing money at Fields to keep him won't help with that. Of course the problem with Chicago is that trading him away to take a better quarterback might help with that but probably won't actually result in that--being a trash organization and all.

49ers/Ravens had more talent. 

Ravens went down 10 and just collectively hit the panic button late 2nd/early 3rd. abandoned the run (which they were only historically great at) and said OK LAMAR U THE MVP GO OUT AND HERO BALL US TO VICTORY. 

I think I might have figured out Purdy or Shanahan or both (or LOL neither). When Purdy is playing well Shanahan makes him better. The offense is humming and you just don't know where the ball is going. The QB looks like montana, the coach the 2nd coming of Walsh, Debo/Auik/CMC an unstoppable trio of pain.  

When Purdy is in a funk Shanahan gets all galaxy brained OH HO HO, HES NOT FEELING IT, WELL THEN GUESS WHAT I BET THE OTHER TEAM THINKS WE'LL GIVE THE BALL TO THE BEST RB IN THE NFL, BUT NO THEY'LL NEVER SUSPECT THAT WE ARE GONNA JUST KEEP PASSING! and makes Purdy worse. 

The 3rdQ playcalling by SF was a turd sandwich for the ages. Purdy was shook (his face never hides it well) and in fairness usually just needs a drive or 2 to settle down and they just kept passing it. It go so predictable that by late in the 3rd on 1st down: PA to CMC only the KC D just ignored CMC and went straight after Purdy. 

KC, they just never lost it despite a stretch of 0 pts for almost 4 quarters. It was just OK Pat, its gonna be a tough day, just grind it out, figure out what works and don't forget to hand the ball off. We just need u to be good for 5-10 minutes. Inevitably they figured out quick dink and dunk passing is gonna keep the DL away (all the while still running the ball). They won the way the won all year, just grinding out games.

The demise of the Bears began in 1987 when Michael McCaskey fired Jerry Vainisi as GM and gave the job to himself for 15 years. Sure, they have GM's lately, but they really aren't GM's. So long as the McCaskey's hold on to the team, they will be garbage.

I think they will sell when Papa Bear's daughter dies. She's 101.
