Yeah, out of all the things I can knock Williams for, him hugging his mom is really low on the list.

If anything, outdated alpha male machismo condemning Williams for crying and going to his mom makes me root for him to succeed more.

I'm not sure that anybody wants their franchise QB running to the stands for mommy because he just got his ass kicked. At $10M per year or whatever and in a leadership role and also in your early 20s you should have more maturity.

Eh, Poles cried during his presser when he was hired. Players cry when they get drafted and during the national anthem. Terrell Owens cried every time he talked about Tony Romo. Dick Vermeil could hardly stop crying long enough to coach a Super Bowl.

I remember Peanut crying during interviews on occasion. Hester cried. Payton cried when he retired...was he soft?

I think the questions about Williams' maturity are valid, but showing his emotions aren't much of a concern to me.
It's the context.

On draft day or after winning the big game, go right to mom and cry your eyes out. That's totally normal.

But not like what Williams did.

I call him crybaby, but you can understand why he’d be so upset. They were hoping to BUILD on 2022, but the OLine got worse, the defense got worse, he lost Jordan Addison to the NFL. After starting 6-0, they lost back to back, eliminating them from the playoffs. Then they lost to Washington. Which not only was it their 3rd loss in 4 games, but I think eliminated them from the PAC-12 title game. Also putting up 42 points with 300+ yards, 3 TDs, no picks, and losing by double digits might drive me to tears too now that I’m thinking about it.

And yet another article on Williams:

https://chicago.suntimes.com/sports-sat ... t-2024-usc

Is he the best QB in the draft since John Elway? He is talented but I have my doubts about a statement like that. Would he let outside interests interfere with him and football? That's the 64 million dollar question.
Drafts are like snowflakes, no two are alike.
