Caleb Williams on Patrick Mahomes comparison: “I don’t think there’s anything I can’t do that he’s doing”

Quarterback guru Tom House recently has dubbed USC quarterback Caleb Williams the second coming of Patrick Mahomes. Williams does not disagree with that assessment.

“It’s pretty cool, I’d say, just because everybody watches Patrick and sees all the cool things he can do,” Williams said, via Zach Gelb of CBS Sports Radio. “I always said even in high school that I don’t think there’s anything — obviously, he’s special, but I don’t think there’s anything that I can’t do that he’s doing out there.”

Williams will be eligible to enter the NFL draft in 2024. He could be one of the most sought-after players in league history.

Former (and future) NFL coach Sean Payton recently dubbed Williams a “generational player,” adding that Williams could be the player who helps spark a draft lottery. He also could be the next player to do what John Elway and Eli Manning did. But that will be the subject of another post.

  1. All these so called “guru”s were saying the same thing about Trevor Lawrence…pump the break, let these kids play in NFL and then compare them to an MVPs/HOFers

  2. Next year’s season will decide his future and draft position. Many who look great one year, fall back to normalcy the next. I think he will be as good as some of the best, but let’s give it another 12 months before adorning him the next GOAT in waiting.

  3. Bro this guy needs to chill & keep painting disrespectful things on his nails. See how that goes over in the NFL.

  4. Isnt it interesting who the most successful quarterbacks are right now in the NFL?

    Mahomes, Allen, Burrow, Hurts, Herbert et al…

    They arent guys who plant flags in opponents turf, flick off fans, or in this case paint their nails with NSFW phrases against their opponent — who whooped em incidentally. Hey caleb, beat someone, K?

    Slow down on this clown, please.

  5. Whoever dunks on the kid for being arrogant was likely never great at anything themselves. Some of the great ones express it differently some are outwardly boisterous, but it’s impossible to be great at anything without a si statism amount of self belief. Which often borders arrogance. Ask Kobe. Jordan. A-Rodgers. Jerry Rice.

  6. Who cares how he compares to Patrick Mahomes.

    Set your sites a bit higher young man.

    See if you can stack up to first ballot HOF QB Russell Wilson.

    THAT would be something.

  7. He can compare himself to Mahomes when he’s got a Lombardi on this resume. Until then he’s just another wannabe.

  8. All you obsessed on the 2022 Broncos crew get back to us when Russell Wilson has more bad seasons than Peyton Manning.

  9. How many times have we heard these qbs who have one good season and are a year away as the next “generational” talent only to have them Brick the year before they’re drafted?

  10. There are a lot of physically gifted busts.
    But Tom Bradys football IQ/Skillset in Zach Wilson and you have a monster.

    Football IQ/Skills >>> physical tools

  11. He lost me when I heard about his silly, insulting nail polish spelling out FU about opponents. Here’s hoping he doesn’t get drafted until the 3rd or 4th round, still wears his offensive nail polish in the NFL and gets his sorry butt crushed by the MEN there who won’t put up with that garbage. Anyone who paints that trash on their fingernails is beyond arrogant… he’s trash. Good thing your mommy loves you, kid, because no one in the NFL will…. This guy has the same mentality as some of the diva wide receivers we’ve seen bragging about how great they are. He won’t last with HIS attitude….
