Cary Williams is hungry.

The Eagles' outspoken second-year cornerback sat down with CSNPhilly's Michael Barkann in a one-on-one interview Thursday and made it known that improvements are still to be made, despite coach Chip Kelly's remarks before practice that the team is "light years ahead" of where it was this time last season.

"I think we understand what's expected of us this time around," Williams said. "We've got that experience of what Chip Kelly's system is about."

The Eagles were at the bottom of the pack defensively last season, but Williams is content to let the past stay in the past.

"It's defense and you have to have a short memory. ... You can still win a Super Bowl with a bottom defense," he said. "History has done it."

The key entering next season will be the familiarity built between Williams and his teammates in the Eagles' system, something they did not have last year.

"It was tough last year, especially getting to know four new guys that you aren't used to playing with," Williams said of his secondary mates. "You have to have chemistry, especially in the secondary.

"I don't think we were where we wanted to be last year. I think we have a lot of things to improve on this season," he said. "We're not satisfied, we can never be satisfied with a 32nd-ranked pass defense. There's no excuse for that."
