Caleb Williams, an artist or a surgeon?

while talking with the media Caleb Williams responded to Poles’ comments.

“I’ve actually heard that about the artist or surgeon thing,” he said with a smile. “I like to think that when it’s time to be surgical, it’s time to be surgical. There’s been many games where it gets late in the game and I’ve ran or scrambled and threw a crazy pass. That’s being the artist, the magician.”

These comments from Williams and additional interest in comments from a Bears official have excited their fans and they have already started dreaming of the Quarterback donning their jersey.
