He didn't necessarily have to give up on the play, just not wave his hands to the QB as if saying "I'm open" because he should've known he wasn't eligible to touch the ball first; rather, since the QB was running, he could've blocked someone to clear space for another receiver to make the play, or clear a path for the ball carrier.

But really, at that point, in that situation, after being pushed out of bounds and knowing the rule, taking yourself out of the play is the smart thing to do. It has nothing to do with lack of effort.

The Suckaneers have no right to whine.
True, if the game was called exactly correct, we win by 3 scores.

I think in that situation it's a lot easier for a defender to remember the rules and have game awareness than the receiver, who by that point is just running around trying desperately to make a play. Which is kind of exactly what I think happened there.

The WR should have let the QB know he was ineligible.
If I'm not mistaken, I believe he's referring to the FG attempt, which is what the headline refers to.

In contrast... two of the most important things a receiver should ALWAYS know? Where your feet are, and where the line is.

Agreed. If you're a receiver, you simply cannot forget that rule or just plain not know where you are. Receivers make circus-tight roping catches along the sidelines all the time. They know where they are, so for Williams to not know that is pretty sad. But it was absolutely the right call, and if he doesn't run out of bounds he never would have gotten so open, because the defender already knew his man was out of the play.
