Christian Watson, wide receiver for the Packers, is eager to expand on his recent success. “Don’t stop slicing”
Christian Watson, a second-round pick, didn’t have his breakthrough game until Week 10.
On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers wide receiver blasted the Dallas Cowboys for four receptions, 107 yards, and three touchdowns. Watson has just 88 receiving yards and zero receiving touchdowns in his previous six games due to injuries and dropped passes.
On Tuesday, Watson was questioned whether the drops and slow start to the season had shaken his confidence.
Here and there, sure, but it’s a speedy recovery,” Watson said. To put it bluntly, I’ve had a lot of men rooting for me and restoring my faith in myself. Drops and poor plays are inevitable, so I have to constantly remind myself that I’ve done all I can to prepare for them and that I’ve put in the effort I can. Next time you get a chance, take it!
Everyone in Green Bay is wondering whether the rookie’s impressive performance on Sunday was a fluke or the start of something significant.

Watson encouraged the chopper to keep going. Evidently, you must maintain your upward trajectory and steadily increase your momentum from week to week.
A lot of doors will open for the Packers offense if Watson keeps getting it done. One-high coverage has been a soft spot for Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon, so defenses have been able to load the box against them. Offensive coordinators may think twice before daring Aaron Rodgers to take deep shots if Watson keeps burning defensive backs.
Watson’s speed was “the one thing that you absolutely witnessed,” coach Matt LaFleur said Monday. And I do believe that once you have that aspect, it does impact how maybe you are seen or how teams will play you.
In order to be successful, we needed to make some major plays. Weekly, we recite, “You want to score points, have explosive plays, and he gave a great spark for us.”
Thursday night’s Packers opponent, Tennessee, was no doubt paying attention to Watson’s performance against the Cowboys.

“I think he battled with some drops and things like that early in the season, but he obviously had a breakthrough game and I’m sure they’re expecting that that’s going to sort of continue on the rest of the year,” Titans safety Kevin Byard said this week, as reported by the Associated Press. To prevent him from making huge plays over the top, we must be rough with him.
