Caleb Williams is in Halas Hall, marking his first day on the job as the quarterback of the Chicago Bears.

It's Caleb Williams time for the Chicago Bears

While Bears fans might've felt similar feelings three years ago, the Caleb Williams era has begun, and there's all the reason in the world to be elated with how Day 1 went for Ryan Poles and the Bears.

Not only did the Chicago Bears select Caleb Williams No. 1 overall, but they paired him with one of the top receivers in the draft in Rome Odunze. Personally, outside of Marvin Harrison Jr., Rome Odunze was my favorite receiver in the draft, and based on what Caleb and Rome have said about each other, it appears Ryan Poles made the right moves on Thursday night.

And in Williams' inaugural press conference as the Chicago Bears quarterback, there were some key things he said that should make Bears fans wish the season started tomorrow.

Sure, it might be early to call Caleb Williams a sure thing, as he has yet to play in the NFL. He comes into the NFL with areas he needs to improve, but that's every prospect. No prospect comes into the NFL without needing to improve at all.

However, Williams has a confidence in himself that's infectious. To some, it's arrogant and cocky, but that tone won't stick forever. There might not be much success in Bears history at the quarterback position, but as Ryan Poles said in his post-Day 1 presser, "And you know, the history's the history. I'm kind of done talking about it. You go back so much all the time and those days are over."

Ryan Poles is sick of living in the past, and Caleb Williams is ready to propel Chicago to NFL relevance.

And if you didn't think so before, you will after hearing this kid talk to the media in his first press conference as the future franchise quarterback of the Chicago Bears.
