Bill Belichick Did A Breakdown Of Caleb Williams And It’s Awesome


Bill Belichick has been around NFL football since 1975. Since then, he has rubbed shoulders with some fantastic quarterbacks. It started with Bert Jones in Baltimore. Then it was Phil Simms in New York, Bernie Kosar in Cleveland, and, of course, Tom Brady in New England. He’s also coached against many, many great ones over the years. This man will be in the Hall of Fame someday. So when he decides to do a detailed breakdown of a quarterback, you should probably listen. Chicago Bears fans got that rare treat during the NFL draft when he went into detail on Caleb Williams.

Belichick doesn’t dispute the fact he is a tremendous talent. He sees a lot of Russell Wilson in Williams’ game. His mixture of mobility, a strong lower body, and excellent arm talent make him difficult to defend. Probably the two things that make him most lethal are his quick release and accuracy. When he decides to get the ball out, it comes out fast and almost always goes to the exact right spot it needs to. However, Williams isn’t without his flaws, too. He will have to clean up some important issues if he wants to thrive at the NFL level.

The legendary coach did a full breakdown on ESPN with The Pat McAfee Show.

Bill Belichick knows what he’s talking about.

Remember, he is looking at Williams through the lens of a defensive coach. He is one of the best defensive minds in NFL history. Nobody has done a better job finding and exploiting opposing quarterbacks’ weaknesses than Belichick. This means what he says about Williams and his tendency to freelance too much will eventually be something NFL teams game plan against. If the quarterback wants to reach his full potential, he must learn to operate efficiently from the pocket, leaving the improvisational stuff only for when there is no other choice.

This is a lesson Wilson had to learn when he first got into the league. The same was true of Patrick Mahomes. If Williams is as smart as they say, he already knows this. In fact, he would be wise to reach out to Bill Belichick for tips on how to evolve his game. After all, Williams said his goal in the NFL is chasing Brady’s record of seven Super Bowl championships. Who better to teach him what it will take to get that far than the man who guided Brady to six of them?

That’s why CW had the boring pro day, because he made it a point to have his scripted throws from the pocket. He seems to be self aware and he and his team know what they are doing.

Obviously, we don’t know what anybody’s relationships are like around the NFL, but remember that Tom is part owner of a competing franchise now. Might not be as willing as he would have been a year or two ago.

Anyway, my real question is, how the hell can anybody tolerate watching Pat McAfee? All the dude does is bark and yell. Unbelievably obnoxious.

Exactly Man….belichick didn’t do so well with any other QB except Brady. I think CW played the way he did because of his circumstances. Like bad O line, not the best receivers ect. Doubt he will have any issue playing on script with a good O line and top flight receivers.

Why reach out to Bill when he could just as easily reach out to Tom for assistance with his game. I bet Tom would willing help the youngster attempt to reach his lofty aspirations. Brady was and still is a highly competitive person striving to be the best in all he sets for his personal aspirations, and he could be a great mentor and coach for Caleb Williams.
