Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel went viral on Sunday thanks to a video that showed him saying “stop it” to Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fields after an impressive scramble.

On Monday, McDaniel was asked about the viral clip. And he had a tremendous response.
“I just wanted him to stop scrambling,” said McDaniel. “It was pretty irritating because he didn’t listen…at all. He didn’t take the coaching.”

Miami won the game 35-32 but the Bears made it interesting thanks to Fields’ big day.
The former Ohio State quarterback rushed for 178 yards on 15 carries. The 178 rushing yards from Fields are the most ever by a quarterback (the previous record was 173 yards by Michael Vick).
As the Bears are settling in under first-year head coach Matt Eberflus, we’re seeing the superstar abilities that Fields possesses. If Chicago gets him some help, the Bears are going to be an extremely dangerous team.
