Paul K has a great piece on the rise of Damian Williams. It's taken Williams a while to start cashing in on his potential, but over the past few weeks he's really been stepping up. Hopefully last week was his coming out party as a legit NFL wide receiver, because Hasselbeck desperately needs one to compliment Nate Washington.
Grantland writer, and former Football Outsiders scribe, Bill Barnwell lauds our D's outstanding performance against the Panthers.
