Since the Chicago Bears selected Caleb Williams no. 1 overall in the 2024 NFL Draft, expectations for the organization have continued to rise.

This is the most excitement Chicago has had around a Bears team in quite some time, and maybe even. more so than that 2018 squad. With Williams being the top quarterback prospect to come out of college in the last decade or so, why wouldn't the expectations be high?

Recently, Williams sat down along with a few of his fellow top rookie peers and had a chance to speak with some high profile names, absorbing wisdom and advice from the likes of Tom Brady and Jay-Z.

Brady, specifically, gave the rookies some very black and white, applicable, serious advice about how they need to go about their business in the NFL if they want to win. He couldn't have laid it out any more clear.

"When you have 53 guys on a team and you think it's about 'you,' it ain't about you. It's about 'us,'" Brady said.

"The biggest problem I see with a lot of young players today, you guys are making it too much about 'I' and 'me,' ... because of social media, because of branding and all that. It's fine ... you're not gonna win. There's a difference between being a star and being a champion."

That's about as crystal-clear as you can get.

"You're not gonna win."

If you make it about yourself, your brand, your social media, your following, etc., then you're not going to win. That was the message from the former New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback.

The future Hall of Famer went on to talk about why each day should be important:

"Every day of practice is important. You know why? Because when I was on the Patriots, and we had 20 years of winning, every day was a big day. I treated a preseason game, I treated a regular season game, like it was the Super Bowl ... so when I got to the Super Bowl, it was just another day for me."

It's hard to argue with Brady because, based on any video we've ever seen of him practicing, what he said in the above statement is 100 percent believable.

Finally, Brady summed it up:

"There should be nobody in your life that should have higher expectations for you, than you."

Coming into the NFL, Williams has stated that his final goal is "immortality," meaning that he wants to be one of the greatest to ever play the game. He wants to win multiple championships and, by all means, find his way to Canton.

When it's all said and done, who better to receive advice from than Brady?
