Can someone, anyone please explain why we don't get the ball to Nick Williams on offense. I know its been discussed throughout the year but its really making me insane today. Every time he touches the ball he makes something good happen yet, amazingly, we don't get the ball to him on offense. Mystifying indeed.

Maybe because we have issues with our QB?

Not getting the ball to Williams is about 23rd on the list of issues with this offense. I agree with what you are saying, but this game is awful on so many levels.

We were able to get it to Kashif on a reverse. I think we could figure out how to do the same for Williams. JMac sucks throwing from a 7 step drop, how about Williams on a slant? I played and coached football for many, many years and you find a way to get the ball to your explosive players. Im not sure how getting the ball in the hands of your best offensive players is "23rd on the list of issues". Seems to me its got to be in the top 3.

Nick Williams needs to be on the field - we need to play more 3WR sets. Enough with this Double TE Stop

Just because a player is good on special teams does not mean it will translate to the offensive side of the game. That being said, I'm down for trying anything at this point. Put him out there.

A playmaker is a playmaker and we only have one. Give him the ball.

Agreed. He had two big catch & runs on the short slant in the Buffalo game (albeit it was Buffalo). The kid makes things happen. Get him out there on offense.

Actually we have 2 explosive players Williams and McCummings and it is a mystery how few plays our offense can find for them.....???????

I think Kash fits the explosive tag more than Nick but our inability to throw the ball limits them all.
