Takeaway No. 2: Caleb Williams isn't ducking high expectations for Chicago Bears

Caleb Williams, D'Andre Swift, Roschon Johnson, Keenan Allen, D.J. Moore, Rome Odunze, Cole Kmet, Gerald Everett, Braxton Jones, Teven Jenkins, and Darnell Wright on the same offense? Pinch me, I must be dreaming.

On top of a defense that ranked highly at the end of the season, the expectations for the Bears are real. Now, there shouldn't be Super Bowl thoughts— JK... unless? No... — but the top two in the NFC North is a reasonable expectation going into next season. Caleb Williams has been touted as a top prospect for as long as he's been draft-eligible, and even before then, so to believe he should come into the NFL and have decent success with a star-studded supporting cast is reasonable.

And Caleb Williams isn't ducking those expectations.

"“What’s the reason to duck [high expectations]? It’s here. There’s no reason to duck. I’m here, Rome’s here, Keenan Allen, top five defense that we had last year, the special teams, we’re here. I’m excited. I know everybody’s excited. The Bears fans are excited from what I’ve heard and seen, and there’s no reason to duck. Attack it head-first, and go get it.”"

As someone with all the confidence in themselves to be great, Williams has no intentions of turning that confidence on now. When the lights shine, he's ready.
