    Re: Jake Williams = Austin Flynn

    He hasn't yet shown that knack for getting open or making clutch plays.

    His touchdown catch last night was pretty impressive.

    I would call hauling in a 22 yard TD on 3rd and 16, down 7-3, on the road, to be pretty clutch. That play was HUGE. So often in the past, that's a draw play and field goal. Rather than settling for the field goal, we take the lead and set the tone for the rest of the game. It was a good throw by AA and a great catch by Jake.

    I would call it one good play. Clutch would be doing it week in and week out.

    To me, clutch means making a big play when you NEED a big play. We needed that play in a big way, and Williams (and AA) delivered.

    I'm not saying Williams is a game in, game out clutch players. He hasn't played enough games to ascertain that. However, he made a very clutch play. One that if he doesn't make it, the game might have taken a different turn.

    Flynn was a great athlete and a precise route runner. Jake has quite a bit to work on before he's on Flynn's level.

    Re: Jake Williams = Austin Flynn

    Comparing him to Austin is one thing. Saying that he's equal to Austin, on the basis of one or two catches, is ludicrous overstatement.

    I think we are saying the same thing.

    Re: Jake Williams = Austin Flynn

    Flynn was a 4-star recruit, that played early in his career and his whole career. Jake is a walk-on 5th year senior just now getting his first td.

    Re: Jake Williams = Austin Flynn

    When I say he is "equal" to Flynn, I mean he is finding that niche as a dependable guy that runs good routes and catches the ball when it is thrown to him to move the chains.

    I don't know that I've seen him drop a pass yet. Of course he's only caught 4-5 balls, but that's saying alot right now.

    Re: Jake Williams = Austin Flynn

    We have a multitude of receivers who could be the clutch saving grace of the team from week to week. I just hope arnaud puts it all together and digests this offense. It's a lot to learn. And 3rd Offense he's learned at ISU. He just needs to just learn to look off defenders instead of staring down receivers.

    He is only a RSJr. according to Cyclones.com. He has been solid through the first few games it will be nice to have him around for another year if he continues to progress.
