Mike Williams MIA from Seahawks’ offense

Published on September 27, 2011 by     Tacoma News Tribune (Feed)

After six weeks of practice and three regular season games, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and receiver Mike Williams have yet to get on the same page.

Williams finished as Seattle’s leading receiver last season, earning a three-year, $11.2 million contract.

But through three games this season, Williams is tied for fifth on the team with five catches for 43 yards.

And while Sidney Rice led the team with eight catches for 109 yards in his regular-season debut in Seattle’s 13-10 win over Arizona on Sunday, Williams was targeted just once. It was early in the game, and he finished without a catch.

“Obviously, we want to get the ball to Mike a little more,” Jackson said after the game. “We didn’t connect today (Sunday). We didn’t have a lot of plays and defenses – he probably was open a couple times, if I go back and watch the film, I’ll probably see him open a couple of times on the pictures.

“We just have to do a better job of making sure I look for that (and) we get some plays where we get him the ball.”

Perhaps one saving grace for Williams is he got off to a slow start last season. Through the first three games of the 2010 season, Williams had just seven catches for 106 yards. But he totaled 25 catches for 242 yards in his next three games on his way to finishing with 65 receptions for 751 yards and two touchdowns.

Seattle coach Pete Carroll said he talked to Williams after Sunday’s game in the locker room, acknowledging the fact he did not get a lot of touches, but it was just a circumstantial event.

“It’s not just Mike,” Carroll said. “I don’t care who the guy is, it’s the guy on the other side and I just want to balance things out. We’d like to get Zach (Miller) a few balls, too. But it will happen, and it will come when it comes.”

“He knows,” added Carroll. “He understands.”
