Chicago fans all over the country couldn't be happier right now. That's because the team, finally, has a quarterback of the future to look forward to. On Thursday night, the Bears traded up with the New York Giants to take Justin Fields with the No. 11 overall pick.

While Andy Dalton may open the season as the team's starter, there's no question whatsoever that Fields is the franchise QB moving forward.

When was the last time Bears fans were excited about a signal-caller? It feels like forever. Fields is a tremendous talent and his dual-threat abilities are outstanding. Big things are coming for Chicago, folks.
