Bears fans thought that non call for Flacco was only a Justin Fields conspiracy.

Great game plan by Texans.  Browns defense out of position all half

Bears fans (some at least) thought the 10 points Fields put up on the Browns (a.k.a. '85 Bears) was very good.

Flacco was a nice story but those pick-6’s are part of why he wasn’t  on a roster to start the year

Texans have a good QB.

Texans have a good OC.

Bears have maybe 1 of those.

How much better would the Bears have been if they didn't trade out of #1, and instead drafted Stroud?

Panthers and Bears will be kicking themselves for years.

It's impossible to watch this as a Panthers fan and not lament the one that got away. I agree that Stroud's passing motion seems so effortless, and he moves in the pocket so well. Throws accurately and on time. Just outstanding to watch.

He's disproving the critics he had. That real low score he got on whatever that test was called ... I guess he's disproving what the experts said about that, too.

Having said that ... I would like to see how Bryce Young would do if he got to throw to a receiver like Collins and if he had an offensive line that gave him any time at all. But that isn't to take anything away from Stroud, who could be a foundational piece for the Texans for a decade or more.

Have been a CJ Stroud fan since I saw him live early in the season.

Has a bright future

Now that we are in playoffs cant see any team beating The Chiefs . Mahomes and Kelce have too much talent

A lot. The QB is by far the most important position in the NFL. Stroud is great, Fields is not. Could’ve gotten assets for Fields going into the Draft and had Stroud at 1.

Instead got DJ Moore and this year’s #1 pick in a much stronger QB draft. Hindsight is 20/20

How much worse would they be with last year’s consensus #1 (Young) and without this year’s #1, DJ Moore and Darnell Wright?

There is zero chance the bears make the playoffs this year if they have CJ, but without Moore and Wright.

Not to mention that there's zero chance the 2023 bears staff draws up plays for CJ the way Slowik has done.

It’s not like the Houston Texans were some juggernaut and Stroud was stepping into a stacked roster that clearly just needed a good quarterback.

If the Bears front office defends Fields like their fanbase I’m all for it. The Bears will never be anything more than mediocre until they get decent quarterback play.

The Texans were 3-13-1 last year and their top 3 receivers from last year are not on their roster this year. Guess what makes bad or average receivers good? A great quarterback.

I seriously can’t believe Bears fans think they’d be in the same spot they are now had they traded Fields and took Stroud 1 overall. Bryce Young? Sure. Stroud? Difference maker.
