Williams responds to Enos, breaks down his own play and his OL

Williams responds to Enos, breaks down his own play and his OL

Stefan Adams
After the loss to UF over the weekend, Miami OC Dan Enos laid out various criticisms he had of freshman QB Jarren Williams, telling the media he felt his young quarterback did not play well enough to win.

“He was right,” Williams said of Enos’ comments. “The quarterback is judged on how many games you win or lose. We came up short and I had a lot of mistakes in the game.

“He is a perfectionist and if your performance is anything short of that, he is going to let you know. He expects perfection and we rep it every day. I love that because I feel like it is going to make me better in the long run. It is tough, but it is only going to make me better.”

One of Williams’ takeaways from his first start was being able to trust the pocket more in the future instead of bailing out too quickly.

“The biggest thing I learned is that when the pocket does break down, you have to still trust the pocket on the next play,” Williams said. “On that next play, you might have a big play. You still have to trust the pocket, stand there and find the open guy, go through my progressions.”

Williams also pointed to one play in the game that he felt was his biggest miss.

“I’d say toward the end of the game, crunch time, third down, I dropped back and I got greedy,” Williams said. “I was looking down the field, went to my first and second progression, a post and corner, was hanging on it way too long and tried to run out of the pocket. If I got to my last progression, which was KJ (Osborn) in the flats, he could have possibly caught the ball and picked up a first down. That’s completely on me.”

Williams was not the only freshman starter on the offense that received criticism. Offensive tackles Zion Nelson and John Campbell made their first starts as well and saw some struggles as part of a line that gave up 10 sacks and 16 TFL, but Williams pulled some positives from their performances.

“For the most part, I felt they did a really good job going against that defense,” Williams said of Nelson and Campbell. “A great, great first experience for them. That game going against that talented D-Line is only going to make us better. They’re going to take a lot away from that game.”

After a bye week this weekend, Miami will follow up with their second game of the season against the UNC Tar Heels in their ACC opener. Williams expects to take what he’s learned against UF and apply it to his game during the off week to come out and play even better against North Carolina.

“That was my first college game, having that experience with the play clock, different things, I have a better understanding of how things work,” Williams said. “I feel I’ll be a lot more prepared now going into my second game, expect to play a lot better.”

Very proud of the way him and the tackles kept playing. We didn’t win but they definitely learned. Was at the game and my god I had a great fucking time besides the outcome. Go Canes now run the table the rest of the year
 
Although I’m concerned that he may be another Kaaya in terms of playing style I’ll give him credit that he accepts tough coaching... bc Kaaya would’ve cried all Spring and transferred if Coach Enos was coaching him.

But I still want him to emerge as the type of QB that’s an impact player that can turn the switch on and make winning plays. I saw that in NKosi last year so I hope Jarren snaps out of it quickly bc unlike when Kaaya played, we have options this time around.

jarren moved around in the pocket more in the first half than kaaya did over the course of his entire career.

You talk like kaaya was bad. He had his flaws but overall he was a solid qb.
 
That’s the biggest thing he’s learned? How on earth did he not know this previously?
Didn't mean to like your comment because I couldn't tell if you were being a dick or just stupid. It was his first start against a very good Dline. He'll only get better as he learn from live active.

Don't be stupid.
 
He will be a great Quarterback and win 1 national championship....I said it first ...So quote me on that....If he stays 3 more years he will win us a ship!!!!!!!!! NO MORAL VICTORIES HERE !!!!!! WE SHOULD HAVE A ND WE WILL WIN!!!!!!!
