During a recent SiriusXM interview, Sanders expressed his reservations. “Let me tell you something that I have a problem with,” he began, highlighting his worry about Williams playing in Chicago. Sanders acknowledges Williams’ immense talent, stating, “I think he’s the best one on the board this year for sure.” However, his concern lies in the stark contrast between Williams’ experience playing in warm-weather locations – California (USC) and Oklahoma (Sooner) – and the notoriously cold Chicago winters.

The difficulties quarterbacks have while moving from warm to cold regions are highlighted by Sanders. He emphasizes that when playing on ice fields, throwing mechanics and footwork must be adjusted. Even though Williams is incredibly talented, he might first struggle to perform well in these unfamiliar circumstances.

The Chicago Bears’ Quarterback Woes

The Chicago Bears have long struggled to find a franchise quarterback. Their last true star under centre was Sid Luckman, a legend from a bygone era. Despite occasional flashes, the Bears haven’t enjoyed consistent quarterback excellence. This historical context sets the stage for Sanders’ apprehensions.

Sanders emphasizes the weather factor. Williams hails from California and spent time in Oklahoma, both relatively warm climates. Chicago, on the other hand, is notorious for its biting cold winters. The transition from sunny Los Angeles to the Windy City can be jarring. Sanders cautions that this environmental shift could impact Williams’ performance.

Some agree with his viewpoint, recognizing the possible challenges of adjusting to a new environment.
