"Hits on the quarterback, lots of times, are more meaningful than sacks on a quarterback," Williams said. "... We were able to get, I don't know, it was up near 15, 16 times we were able to hit him. Those are effective changing the clock in his head."
"When we played him in Washington that last time, we had a bunch of injuries going into that game and we had to stay pretty vanilla in that ballgame just because of some of the people we played," Williams said. "Last year, we weren't near as -- just because of the philosophy of Jacksonville, I mean, kind of babysitting our program -- last year, we weren't as much, because that's not the idea of the Jacksonville defense.
"Here, you know, I'm in charge of it here and that was all handled before the contract was signed -- and (Saints coach Sean) Payton wanted us to be aggressive."

At the end of the clip, Williams spies Payton across the room and asks if he wants some peanut butter.
Taking the joke well, Payton glides over, embraces Williams, and kisses him on the cheek.
Williams doesn't vibe rogue element on this night. Payton greets him as he would a trusted assistant -- not the goat of a franchise in search of itself.
