My issue with Williams is his accuracy. Williams missed open receivers nearly
every game, not that any QB is perfect, but I didn't feel he was that
accurate.In the spirit of honesty, living out-of-state, I have
limited ability to evaluate the other QB's, so I can't really judge
who should be the starting QB.Just win baby!
Simplicity, I think it gets lost on a lot of people that Williams reportedly
injured his knee early in the season so he was very hamstrung in the run game.
This is not to excuse him completely, but having a physical limitation can take
a lot of the instincts away (especially from an athletic, dual-threat type QB)
and put a lot more thought into playing the position. The new offense is also
supposed to be designed to be a lot more quick read progression rather than full
coverage reads, which was usually where Williams made his mistakes.
Coach Taylor needs to strongly consider Huntley or Bateman. Last year Williams
displayed poor decision making when to run or pass. Countless times he sat in
the pocket for way way too long, resulting in sacks and fumbles. Given this
happens to all QB's sometimes, but Williams was way too hesitant to make
decisions and plays.
Having attended the Spring Game, I think the Utes are in good hands. I was
especially impressed with Cooper Bateman. Nice to know we have good options.Go Utes!
Whoever gets the nod will be the right guy. Utah will be terrific, again.
Williams will be the starter. The question is will KW get out of
the way and let the new OC run the offense? Or will Williams continue to be a
"game manager" and rely on our defense to win?
I am really excited for this year's addition of football. Coach
Taylor's offense will be fun to watch. With several good QB's to
choose between, it should be interesting. I love football in Utah, and with
both BYU and Utah looking to field good teams, I can't wait.
I'm excited to see Taylor's offense in full gear here. Utah has
always had a tough defense, but has lacked consistency on offense. I hope that
Taylor will be here for a long time. Changing OC's virtually every year
has been painful, and without some great runners, liker Booker, the offense
would have been disastrous. I am also happy to see some real talent at the QB
spot. This year is going to be a fun year for the Utes.
