This Jets player is all gas, but needs some brake

He is a big-time hitter, has a great motor, and is one of the Jets’ toughest players.

Talking about linebacker Quincy Williams.

But he needs to play more under control, and he will be the first to admit it.

Moving forward, Williams says he’s “not always going for the big hit.”

“That’s my thing, going for the big hits, but with doing that I was missing out on turnovers and stuff,” Williams said.

An example of being too aggressive was in the Jets’ loss to New Orleans.

In the third quarter, Saints QB Taysom Hill threw a pass short left to RB Tony Jones for 19 yards. Williams shot up the field too far, and Jones snuck out behind him for a 19-yard catch-and-run.

Williams needs to read his keys better at times, and thinks he will this season. Remember he didn’t join the Jets until early September, 2021 as a waiver claim, so he was playing catch-up all season learning the Jets’ defense.

He’s more comfortable now.

“The biggest difference is the IQ of football,” Williams said. “[I’m] not worrying about what I’m doing now. Last year was me coming in late, learning what I’m supposed to be doing.”
