The general rule of thumb in the NFL is from year one to year two is rookies make the biggest leap professionaly in his second season.  Will that be the case for S Marcus Williams who had to answer questions about the Minnesota Miracle -- his whiff on Stefon Diggs in the NFC divisional round loss to the Vikings -- at a charity event today. 

For the most part Williams side stepped those questions, but did offer up his thoughts on the Saints secondary this season.

"We're a tight group, we're talking we're hanging out. It's a great environment that we're in and I think we can be a great secondary this year" Williams said. 

Williams said his main focus this off-season has been trying to become smarter in the game, and improve his football I.Q. Williams was asked several times about the final play in the divisional round playoff game.​ Williams for the most part side stepped the question by simply say he's doing well, and his family is doing well and everyone faces adversity in their life and it's about how you respond from the adversity.
