How New York Jets DC Gregg Williams handles crunch time | Sabo’s Sessions

A series against the Pittsburgh Steelers showcases just how Gregg Williams uses Jamal Adams and pressure in crunch time.

When the going gets tough, the tough get going. Or, if it’s Gregg Williams, he calls on Jamal Adams and sends him flying towards the quarterback, which is one way to “get it going.”

The long-time defensive NFL man is an aggressive play-caller. In fact, he’s aggressive in nature no matter the scenario, even in today’s NFL that sees blitzing become less impactful as the years go by.

Williams’s aggressive nature when crunch time arrives may be best exemplified in the Pittsburgh Steelers Week 16 victory. After a horrible Lachlan Edwards punt and with the New York Jets up six points, Williams was sure to set things up the way he wanted it: with plenty of heat to seal the victory.
