• The moment at USC-Notre Dame game that impressed Bears…

 The Chicago Bears are entering an exciting phase ahead of the 2024-25 season. Chicago acquired former USC football star Caleb Williams with the first overall pick in the 2024 Draft. The moment GM Ryan Poles felt Williams would be a great selection happened on October 14th’s USC-Notre Dame game, in which legendary quarterback Joe Montana happened to be attending.

Williams noticed Montana on thesidelines when USC was warming and made a point to go over and greet the Notre Dame legend. Ryan Poles found Williams’ gesture highly impressive.∂

“They went to do some special teams things, he took his helmet off, ran over and shook his hand. For a young kid to go up to a quarterback like that, Hall of Famer, and not as an, ‘I’m in the same circle as you’, but ‘I look up to you’, and, yet, there wasn’t this college fear of talking to an adult. He did it with confidence and swagger, but a ton of respect and humility at the same time—I couldn’t get that out of my mind,” Poles said, per Sports Illustrated.
