Justin Fields didn’t want to talk to the media Sunday night after the Bears’ 27-10 loss to the Packers in Green Bay.
Can you blame him?
Wednesday, though, felt different from the moment he sat down in the media room of Halas Hall.
Fields wanted to be heard.
The Bears’ starting quarterback waited for a question about something he said in defeat at Lambeau Field — something that went semi-viral but shouldn’t have — but when it didn’t come, he interjected.
Fields was asked about what he does on Mondays and Tuesdays to address mistakes in games but not let it linger.
“Yeah, I was mad after the game,” he said. “I’d like to address this now to get everything cleared up. There was a thing that I said on Sunday after the game where I said the fans don’t put in work. First off, I was frustrated after the game. So No. 1, I didn’t want to talk to you guys. I wasn’t in the mood to come and talk to you guys.”
Those in the media room understood his point and laughed. But he continued.
