Kept telling people that he's massively overrated.
A physical freak? Yes. But if he was a truly great player, those Texans' defenses wouldn't have been so terrible for so long. It's not like he was a great player on an average defense, they were a bottom 3 defense year in and year out.
Mike Lombardi actually hinted at this on Bill Simmons' podcast. He called Williams a "sacker." He gets his sacks, but he doesn't cause disruption on a regular basis like Ware and JPP do.
I said the same in another thread. For a guy who people call a sack artist he's hit double digit sack totals twice in 6 seasons. With a high of only 14. I get that he's a good all around player but he's not a force that makes you worry to the point of fear like some tried to make him.
1: Coples dragged down Spiller for a loss, and laid a mean hit on Fitztragic. Don't act like he did nothing.
2: Coples is a rookie, not a prized free agent veteran with a $50 million price-tag who was proclaimed to be an elite pass-rushing monster who then proceeded to get shutdown by a udfa with 0 starts.
Never really noticed any egregious infractions on the part of Howard. Maybe that's because you only notice things like that when the OL doesn't keep protection. I have the game DVR'd, so I'll look at it closer over the week. For me, Austin Howard did a great job. Whenever you don't notice the RT, he must've done a good job. Legal or illegal, the Jets should take it and run.
