Finest 12 months Subsequent Season:
Wright’s ideas: “If you just looked at your quarterback rating, TDs, yardage, I think [that’s the order.]”
Finest Total Profession:
Wright’s ideas: “Because of the [Bears’] offensive line and receiver issues, I think Justin Fields is going to have real trouble having a monster year. But I think he’ll still show flashes, enough to where he jumps above Mac Jones in the rankings.
“I believe Trey Lance goes to have a greater 12 months than Trevor Lawrence, however I believe Lawrence goes to have a ok 12 months, with the expertise round him, that folks will say, ‘OK, he’s the perfect.’
“I think there are two future Pro Bowl, star-level quarterbacks of these five: Lawrence and Lance. I think Mac Jones’ ceiling is mediocre, Justin Fields might be screwed by the franchise, and Zach Wilson’s probably screwed. He’s hurt already, plays for the Jets, I don’t like it.”
