After more than a decade of waiting, football fans will finally get what they've all been waiting for when EA Sports releases NCAA Football 25 on July 19, 2025. However, this is bittersweet for many, including one Chicago Bear in particular.

Jaquan Brisker has made his feelings clear on EA Sports College Football 25.

After EA Sports dropped a hype-heavy trailer for their newest football game, Jaquan Brisker took to Twitter to voice his conflicted feelings about it.

It's hard to blame him for feeling this way. The NCAA has dropped the ball for many years when it comes to taking care of their athletes, and this is just one more way that they failed.

When I was growing up, it was quite obvious that I wasn't going to be a professional athlete, but that didn't stop me from dreaming about it and creating myself in various games to live out that dream.

Now if I imagine I was Jaquan Brisker? I would've been heartbroken. He had the talent, the size, and the skill to be in a college football video game with his chosen college. Instead, he got nothing.

While it's true that he is in the Madden NFL games, it isn't quite the same. There's a reason why everyone was clamoring for a new NCAA football game. College football simply has an aura that Madden has not, will not, and perhaps could never match.

Now that college football players are allowed to have their likeness in games due to the NIL deals, boys (and hopefully, one day, girls) can grow up dreaming about being a part of their favorite college in a video game without the knowledge that it will never happen. The trailer only emphasizes that.

All of this got me to thinking, however. In the years since we've been unable to play with our favorite college players, which Chicago Bears (current or former) have we truly missed out on from a fun aspect?

I know I'll probably get some flak for this, but Justin Fields comes to mind. His style would be perfectly suited for the Triple Option in a college football game.

Another comes to mind on defense in the form of Tremaine Edmunds. With his length and speed, could you imagine locking onto him as a defensive player and absolutely shutting down an offense with his athleticism?

While he was technically in a NCAA football game, his name and likeness were not there, so I would venture to also say that using Devin Hester at the U would've been an absolute blast. You could've even made him a better cornerback, his first position when he entered the league!
