How much longer are the Los Angeles Chargers going to keep Mike Williams as the 4th receiver on the depth chart? It just doesn’t make sense.

I don’t know how long the Los Angeles Chargers are going to have Mike Williams playing behind Tyrell Williams and Travis Benjamin. It shouldn’t take too many more games until we get him out there playing opposite of Keenan Allen as the starter.

Fans are ready to see it next week, but in reality it will likely wait till week 4 or something. Williams had a nice offseason and opened up week 1 with a nice game. Soon he should take over the starting role.

We took Williams with the 7th overall pick for a reason. He struggled with the injuries last year, but this year he is ready to produce. He has all the ability to be a star in this league and he has the advantage of Philip Rivers throwing him the football.

How much longer are we going to hold Mike Williams back? Tyrell Williams earned the starting role a couple of seasons ago with his play, but the pressure is there for him to produce. The big miscues are going to force him down the depth chart.

Mike Williams can stretch the field and he would be that Malcom Floyd type receiver that Philip has loved in the past. A receiver that he can just throw the ball in his direction and know that he is going to get up and attack the rock. That is something that both Tyrell and Benjamin struggle with.

In week 1, we saw Philip getting into a rhythm with Mike. Once Philip starts trusting in him with the jump ball, we are going to have another monster to deal with at wide receiver. Imagine two beasts on the field at wide receiver with Keenan and Mike. Then you add the abilities of Austin Ekeler and Melvin Gordon in the passing attack and we have a passing attack that is going to strike fear in people.

When do you guys see Mike Williams finally getting the start?
