A few thoughts on Justin Fields
If Fields does indeed transfer I’ll be really disappointed — not just because UGA is losing a talented QB, but also because it seemed like Kirby never really had a plan for him.
In fact, he once famously said, “the plan is there is no plan.” I always assumed Kirby was exaggerating when he said that. As it turns out, maybe he wasn’t.
I’m filled with questions.
Should UGA’s coaches have known that Fields and his camp would be as uninterested in the team as they’ve maybe turned out to be?
Why didn’t they use him more like a regular QB in the games in which he played this season?
And why was a guy who was quite likely already contemplating his next team on the field for the most pivotal play of the most important game of UGA’s season?
The fake punt looks even dumber now.
I’ve said all year that UGA is better for having both Fromm and Fields, and if it doesn’t have both it won’t be as good next season as it could’ve been. Look at how crucial multiple QBs have been for Alabama the last two seasons as an example why UGA needs two capable performers at that position.
However, Fields is only a backup at UGA. Fromm earned the starting job for next season fair and square in the SEC Championship.
You don’t bench someone who made the throws Fromm made, and if Fields thinks he’s too good to sit the bench for another year then good riddance.
I personally hope the reports of Fields’ transfer turn out to be premature though.
UGA needs Fields.
But it can also live without him.
