The Chicago Bears have never really had a franchise quarterback. For years, the team has tried and failed to find a solution to that problem. But there's finally hope on the horizon, in the form of rookie Justin Fields.

In fact, it seems as if Fields is already changing the vibes in Chicago. Take a look at what second-year receiver Darnell Moody had to say about his new QB.

It certainly sounds like Fields is a welcome change of pace after Mooney spent the year catching passes from Nick Foles and Mitchell Trubisky. Of course, buzzy quotes like this are a dime a dozen this time of year.

But it's still encouraging that Fields' presence seems to be changing the mood around the Bears' offense.

Hopefully the kid can live up to the hype in Chicago. Fields currently owns +500 odds to win the Offensive Rookie of the Year award, giving him the second-best such odds in the league, per FanDuel Sportsbook.
