    Lions wideouts continue to disappoint

    Thursday, April 06, 2006

    Rogers, Williams not impressive
    It's just three weeks into the 14-week off-season workout program, but sources say receivers Charles Rogers and Mike Williams have not impressed the new coaching staff.

    Rogers has been attending the workouts but the coaches have been underwhelmed by his attitude and focus and the rumors of his hard-partying lifestyle won't go away. As for Williams, he didn't show up for any of the workouts last week. His agent said he left because of a "family matter.'

    Williams, who is overweight and out of shape, attended the first four workouts and then took 10 days off before returning on Monday. That's not exactly the level of commitment the coaching staff is looking for.

    If the receivers don't turn up the intensity and production through training camp, they can forget about winning starting positions -- they'll be fighting for roster spots.

    And to think some people on this site ripped the Vikings for taking Williamson over Mike Williams, I wonder where they are and what they think now?

    It's a little early to start calling people out, Williamson hasn't proved himself as a starting-caliber receiver in the NFL yet either.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Yes it is early to judge, the wide reciever position is one of the hardest positions to make an instant impact. Sometimes is takes a few years for them to get a feel for the game. One thing they said about Williamson last year was in college he ran a lot of slants. Williamson himself said he likes running slants and gaining yards after the catch. So I'm looking forward to him being in the West Coast offense.

    Williams won't be anything.. I said it all along.. And still will..

    We needed a faster deep threat WR... People didn't see it.. Williams is garbage and product of the system

    Scotty Vines is way better then Rogers and Williams


    And this just proves even more that the Lions DON'T have good WR's.. So people can't make that argument about Harrington anymore either damn it

    As you can see the Rookie Wide reciever stats are not all that impressive, it takes time. Plus Williamson was hurt some games last year. I guess we will see what happens.
