Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields believes he is one of the greatest running QBs in all of NFL history. He named Michael Vick, Cam Newton, Lamar Jackson, Steve Young, and himself.
There's nothing wrong with this line of thinking. I'd rather my favorite QB think he was the best over being like, "Well, let me list x amount of guys who are better than me."
Fields ran for just under 1150 yards last season - the second-most for a QB in history (Jackson had 1206 in 2019). And you could argue that he may have broken Jackson's record had he played in Week 17. But, I think Fields is putting himself there a little early, but it's also fine for him to be a little cocky. It's my favorite QB trait.
