There will be ups and downs for Chicago Bears' quarterback Caleb Williams as he navigates through his rookie season in the NFL.

Similarly, there will be days during the Bears' offseason program when the team's defense will simply be better than the team's offense. After all, the Bears' defense is a unit that was ascending at the end of the 2023 season toward being one of the best groups in the entire NFL.

The expectation entering the 2024 season is that the Bears will have a defense that ranks among the Top-10 in the league. Given that expectation, Williams playing at the NFL level for the first time while the Bears are installing a new offense is going to create growing pains during the summer.

Bears' beat reporter Brad Biggs joined "The Mully and Haugh Show" on 670 The Score Friday morning to discuss what Williams is learning during his initial practices with the team.

It's also important to mention that wide receivers Keenan Allen and Rome Odunze were not on the practice field this past week for the Bears' offense. The Bears' practices this past week were voluntary with Allen having an excused absence for family-related reasons and Odunze dealing with hamstring tightness. Odunze is expected to be back on the practice field next week when the Bears' begin their offseason program.

Williams will experience learning curves during his rookie season, but the expectation is that he will not repeat the same mistake. Past Bears quarterbacks Justin Fields and Mitch Trubisky had the issue of not learning from their mistakes, and the shortcomings they had during their rookie seasons were repeated throughout their entire tenure with the Bears.
