2. The internet goes crazy, Cowherd walks back what he said.
Bears fans took to social media to react to everything they just heard. In short, the posts went anywhere from takes like "only the Bears," to "If he doesn't want us, then we don't want him," and even a couple calls for everyone's job and a sale of the franchise. You know, just another day on the internet. This went on all night long, but then came the morning of Cowherd's next show.
Cowherd was instructed by Williams' "camp" to take back what he said the day before, so nobody labeled him as "anti-Chicago." Although he did walk back quite a bit of what he said, he still left an opening that still could make anyone believe Williams did not want to come to Chicago.
Cowherd is a professional and he knows what he is doing. He perfectly took back what he said previously while leaving it possible that what he said was true. Speculation stayed alive even with him going back on everything he said just the day prior.
Obviously, Chicago still needed some answers. So, credit to 670 the Score in Chicago, they were able to land him as a guest on the Parkins and Spiegel show to settle this once and for all.
