NFC Notes: Justin Fields, Bears, Lions, Packers


Bears OC Luke Getsy had high praise of QB Justin Fields‘ performance in Week 9 against the Dolphins. 

“Obviously, he made some plays that were miraculous,” Getsy said, via Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times. “I mean, they were pretty unbelievable.”

Getsy recalled Fields’ 62-yard touchdown run, which was the longest carry all time for a Bears’ quarterback. 

“Honestly? It was like, ‘Holy cow,’ but not with not that type of talk,” Getsy said. “It was a pretty unbelievable play. As you review the film, it probably shoulda been a 15- or 20-yard completion to [receiver Darnell] Mooney. The way he slid up in the pocket, you wanna see him keep his shoulders a little bit more perpendicular to the line of scrimmage and rip the ball. He was headed there, he just got there a tick late because he squared his shoulders and then it turned into, like, an unbelievable play after that.”



  • Packers DB Johnathan Abram doesn’t believe he has anything to prove and added that Green Bay saw the talent in him: “I don’t have anything to prove. I’ve played a lot of football, a lot of good football and people around the league notice that, which is kind of why I’m here today.” (Matt Schneidman)
  • Packers DB Darnell Savage is more than willing to line up in the slot with the addition of Abram: “Certain things just feel like home. That’s one of those things.” (Ryan Wood)
  • Packers ST coach Rich Bisaccia was surprised about Abram’s release and is excited he wound up in Green Bay: “That was a little bit of a surprise, first of all that he got cut, and then that he winds up with us here in Green Bay.” (Wood)
  • Bisaccia praised Abram and called him fast and a hard worker. He hopes he finds a place to fit in “sooner than later.” (Tom Silverstein)
  • Packers DC Joe Berry said losing OLB Rashan Gary was a huge loss for the team: “What he means to this team, what he means to our locker room, he is the true definition of grit. And I mean that in the absolute most positive way possible.” (Wood)
  • Berry said it’s possible the team will have to send more pressure in an effort to generate what the team lost from Gary: “You hope you don’t have to completely change everything you do, but when you lose a player like that, you have to adjust.” (Wood)
  • Packers OC Adam Stenavich said OT David Bakhtiari didn’t play in the second half against the Lions because his “knee reacted to the turf” at Ford Field: “Don’t think we have any more turf games this year, hopefully we don’t have to worry about that making his knee react that way.” (Rob Demovsky)
