I hear USC cornerbacks Donte Williams has been irritated by criticism this season?
Have I missed it?
And have the corners played well enough to avoid criticism? I don’t know who else (besides me) has written about how Williams’ corners seem to always grab the receivers. That’s poor fundamentals.
Now Williams could counter that he doesn’t have a lot of talent. But who recruited these guys? He’s been at USC for three seasons so that is plenty of time to revamp a secondary.
I’d say he’s lucky to not hear more criticism considering he makes more than $900,000 per season.
- USC defensive coordinator Alex Grinch said 14 times a Trojans’ defensive player was unblocked by Arizona and did not make a tackle. USC missed 20 tackles vs. Arizona according to Pro Football Focus. The Trojans missed 18 tackles vs. Utah. That’s 38 vs. 44 missed tackles in the first six games.
That’s because Arizona and Utah had better offenses than what USC faced the first six games.
- Does anyone think USC’s offensive line is this close to Alabama’s?
