Mike Williams Is Keyshawn’s No. 1November 10th, 2012
If Keyshawn Johnson was throwin’ the damn ball for the Bucs, he’d be eyeballing Mike Williams before Vincent Jackson.
Speaking on the Booger and Rich show on 98.7 FM this week, the man who caught 106 balls for the Bucs in 2001 says his prefers the film on Williams.
“They’re making plays. They’re going and getting the football. I like Williams better than I like Jackson,” Johnson said of the Bucs’ receivers. “I think Williams has the ability to just make plays all the time. When it looks like he’s not going to catch the football, he goes up and he gets it, he catches the ball in traffic. He’s just a solid playmaker to me. But Jackson, it helps him because of his height advantage. I think his size and his height advantage, you know, especially in the red zone, gives him that size advantage that you’re looking for in a receiver.”
Joe, too, is impressed by the versatility and the wow factor of Williams. Hell, the guy’s first career touchdown grab was spectacular and unique. Of course, the body control all starts on the basketball court for Williams, who’s been known to fly around the court.
