Top Insider Told Caleb Williams Why He Would Regret Avoiding Chicago


Everybody has heard the rumors by now. Supposedly, USC quarterback Caleb Williams is somewhat concerned about the idea of the Chicago Bears drafting him. Much of it comes from their tortured legacy at quarterback. They’ve struggled for years trying to develop that position. Justin Fields, Mitch Trubisky, Rex Grossman, Cade McNown, and Jim Harbaugh were all disappointments or outright busts. Not all of that was on the Bears, but too often, those QBs were dropped into situations that were rarely good and didn’t improve much, either due to coaching, supporting casts, or both.

One can understand why it would give Williams pause. That said, it doesn’t mean he would be an automatic failure. If he’s as good of a quarterback as many believe, he can elevate the team around him. Besides, an intelligent man would recognize the enormous opportunity playing in Chicago presents. That is what FOX Sports insider Jay Glazer conveyed to Williams’ camp, according to Alex Shapiro of NBC Sports Chicago. History shows that if you succeed in this city, there is no ceiling on your financial future.

“I told his people, you have a chance to go to Chicago, go to Chicago,” Glazer said. “If you win in Chicago, they will erect bridges for you, streets for you, tunnels for you. Are you kidding me? You’ll be forever golden in that city, and it’s a great city.

“You want to go to a place like Chicago. How would you not want to go to a place like Chicago? Chicago is one of those rare places, man, where you have a chance to change your life forever by being engrained in that city.”

Caleb Williams has plenty of examples to look at.

The most obvious is Michael Jordan. He transformed his all-time great performances on the basketball court into a billion-dollar enterprise, including a shoe line, an automotive group, restaurants, an investor in DraftKings, and owner of the Charlotte NBA franchise. Mike Ditka is another example. He was a Hall of Fame tight end and won a Super Bowl for the Bears as head coach. He turned that into countless endorsements, his own steakhouses, an Arena Football League franchise, a wine company, and his own line of sausages.

Previous Bears quarterbacks like Jim McMahon and Jay Cutler got plenty of endorsement opportunities despite never being great. Imagine what would happen if Caleb Williams finally became that franchise guy this city has lacked for decades. He’d have to beat the people ready to throw money at him off with a stick. Glazer is correct. Williams would become a demigod to millions of fans and set his family up for life with countless business opportunities if he came to Chicago.

This shouldn’t be a tough decision if he thinks he is truly capable of greatness.

CW will make Tyler Scott better, if he gives up his number.

Jim McMahon wasn’t great? The man won 5 freaking division titles in a row and our only Super Bowl. But he never threw for 4000 yards or had 40 touchdowns in a season so all the wins don’t matter. Ask any Bears fan over 45 years old if McMahon was great. Unbelievable

@scooby… I thought the down vote was funny too, but saying anything remotely positive about CW is an auto down vote, even tho the real point of the comment is Bears success overall. I saw u got down voted for pointing it out.. so I up voted you to even it out 😁

I have no idea why someone would down vote that, Sam. I mean, I totally did because of peer pressure, but I definitely agreed with it 100%.

PS, sorry about the down vote.
