Pat Williams discusses Jackson, Favre

May 26th, 2009 – 2:56 PM by Chip Scoggins

 Pro Bowl defensive tackle Pat Williams talked about his ongoing legal situation in the StarCaps case, the need for Tarvaris Jackson to put more time in learning his craft and his text message to Brett Favre in an interview with Sirius NFL Radio this weekend.

The host Alex Marvez of has a recap of their conversation right here. The Jackson answer was particularly interesting.  

Here was Williams’ quote about Jackson: 

“I talk to Tarvaris all the time (and) tell him you have to put in the time,” Williams said. “This ain’t college no more. This is the NFL. You have to put in more time than you are used to putting in. If you are putting in four hours, you have to put in eight. You have to put in more time than what he’s doing. I think if he puts the right time in, he will be a great quarterback in the league.”
