Mike Williams in USC form as Seahawks beat Bears

Published on October 18, 2010 by     T.C.

If  Millen watched today’s Seattle Seahawks-Bears game, he probably asked himself, “Where was this Mike Williams five years ago?”

Williams the former USC star, whom Millen selected with the 10th overall pick in the 2005 draft, never panned out for the Detroit Lions — and was one of the many draft busts who eventually cost Millen his job. But Williams had an outstanding game today in leading the Seahawks to a victory at Soldier Field.

Williams was the focal point in the Seahawks’ passing game, and he caught a career-high 10 passes for 123 yards as the Seahawks beat the Bears 23-20.

The focal point in the Seahawks’ running game was new arrival Marshawn Lynch, who had 17 carries for 44 yards. But it was Justin Forsett, whose role in the offense is being reduced because of Lynch’s arrival, who was more effective: Forsett had 10 carries for 67 yards.

The Bears had a few big plays in the passing game — including a 67-yard Johnny Knox catch and a 58-yard pass interference penalty against the Bears — but Jay Cutler completed just 17 of 39 passes, and for the most part the Bears couldn’t move the ball on offense.

Still, a Devin Hester 89-yard punt return cut the score to 23-20 at the two-minute warning, and the Bears still had a chance until they failed to recover the ensuing onside kick.

The result of the Seahawks’ win is that Seattle is 3-2, Chicago is 4-2, and both teams are currently in first place in their divisions. Perhaps the Seahawks and Bears will meet again in the playoffs — an unlikely scenario, to be sure, but not as unlikely as Mike Williams having a 10-catch game.
