Had a chance to catchup with Hall of Famer Warren Moon and talk about Washington’s newest coach Chris Petersen.
(On Petersen) “People look at Boise State and say they were finesse and they ran the gadget plays and all of those different things, but I tell you what, his teams will hit you. And they play good defense. They’re physical on defense and most of the guys that he puts in the NFL are defensive guys. I like that part of his style.
(Who are those NFL guys?) “Well you look at the guy that separated or broke Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone (Chicago’s Shea McClellin). He’s from Boise State. That’s the first guy that came to mind. They’ve had some good corners. They’ve had some good players on that side of the ball to go along with those receivers too like Titus Young and (Austinn) Pettis and guys like that.”
(So you like the idea of getting back to the old ways of doing thing?) “I really like this hire for a lot of reasons, but mostly because I think this takes us back to what has made Washington so successful which is being the tougher team, running the football and playing physical defense,” Moon said. “There were a lot of people that we could have brought in here and I’m sure most of them would have done a fine job. But considering where we’re at right now, Chris Petersen is the best person we could have gone out and hired.”More

But Mickens swears he’s the same guy today as he was last week. “My life hasn’t changed at all,”…More
Junior tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins talked about injured receiver Kasen Williams, who is out for the season after suffering a leg and foot injury last Saturday against California. “He brought everything,” Seferian-Jenkins said. “He brought energy. He brought physical play. Catching. Blocking. He’s an all-around receiver. We’re going to miss him,…More
Kasen Williams underwent successful surgery Tuesday after suffering a broken left leg and foot injury, said coach Steve Sarkisian. The Huskies expect their star receiver will need 2-4 months to recover, which officially ends his junior season. “Surgery went well,” Sarkisian said. “He’s in good spirits. He’s at home with his parents. “He’ll…More
Coach Steve Sarkisian said star receiver Kasen Williams was scheduled for a MRI today and is expected to have surgery Tuesday to repair a broken left leg and foot injury suffered in Saturday’s 41-17 win over California.
Williams will almost certainly miss the remaining four regular-season games, but Sarkisian refused to say the junior standout, who is third on the team in receptions (29) and receiving yards (421), is done for the season.
“To Kasen’s credit he’s in good spirits,” Sarkisian said. “He came to Coach (Don) James’ service yesterday. He was with the team today. He’ll take it like a champion. He’ll do whatever we need him to do to get healthy and he’ll be back.”
When asked if Williams could return for a bowl game, Sarkisian said: “I’m hesitant to talk on specifics until the doctors get with him.”
Sarkisian said the bye week is coming at a good time for the Huskies because several players are “banged up,” although he declined to be anymore specific. However, he believes everyone – with the exception of Williams – will be available for the Nov. 9 game against Colorado.
