    Re: Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    Sure if

    3ints and 59 tackles ALMOST gets you into the pro-bowl I guess you are free from the luxury of a PRO-BOWL saftey covering your ass. If the drop in production from the years he was there to the two years you played without almost gets you a pro-bowl spot then yeah I guess he did hurdle that tiny little obstacle.

    I can justify his drop off in production after Bailey left as well as

    justify laying a corner with the same abilities on my team out to dry as well as

    over paying for a guy when there were plenty out there that would have played for less that are just as good, as well as

    put up with non-stop Smoot humping by over excited fans last offseason,

    as well as listen to the excuses roll in for his poor play this year,

    as well as the slander against a good player to try in some obscure way to justify picking up a guy who brings no game and scandal to my favorite team for a guy who was named an alternate in a pro-bowl.

    its more than b-will has accomplished, it sounds like you have a man-love for williams. i agree with you, its too bad he probably wont be a viking next year as i like him too, but i think its too soon to say smoot is/was a bad pickup

    This sucks. You can never have enough good CB's. But the guys we have left are good... A-win, Smoot, Davonte and Brown. I think Davonte will be a big time CB for us next year.
    Hey man sorry to chime in on your opinion with mine but I thinkof all of our CBs Brown had to be the WORST of them! As soon as he came in the game opposing teams knew where to strike
    Thanks for the sig Pack93z

    Re: Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    I personally like Smoot better than B-Will, but B-Will does provide the blitz option that Smooty does not ... that said ... B-Will is gone, we cannot give him big bucks to be our third corner when we have a solid one developing in Davonte ... we cannot just "drop" Smoot either as it would be a massive cap hit to do that or to trade him ... so Smoot and Toine will be the CBs for the next couple of years at least more than likely ... and they will do the job just fine.

    Re: Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    i dont think its fair to compare bwill and smoot. bwill never was put on an island 1 on 1 with no safety help like smoot was. winfield even said after the carolina game that he was pissed that cottrell had no safety help over the top of smith on some/alot of plays. there isn't a corner in the league that could have shut him down on that day.

    Re: Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    i think this is good for smoot!

    he will now know that the job is HIS and that he can be the all star corner that he IS!

    Smoot and Winfield are gonna be the best cb tandem in the league

























    Go vikes!!

    Re: Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    Wasn't Devonte the one who got burned in the Ravens game???

    I agree somewhat with Del that BWill will be sorely missed...but that is par for the course when it comes to the Vikings history with defensive backs...they always let several good ones go rather than pay them...Hitchcock, Washington, Griffith...the list goes on.

    Good luck, BWill...we will miss you!

    I do depart with Del on Smoot though...I think that he is a talented CB...I have watched him play in Washington before he went to the Vikings and I think that he will bounce back.

    Remember, Del was the one that was dissing PWill at the beginning of the season...he could be wrong about Smoot as well! :lol:
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    Re: Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    Brian Williams is not AWFUL, he is a pretty good cb, just not the fastest. How is he bad?? He is a playmaker. He is like Nathan Vasher, just bigger and more physical. Brian Williams is basically a safety playing corner. Williams is a ballhawk in every sense of the word.

    Re: Brian Williams Unlikely to Return

    It doesnt matter how good ur stats are. In most cases, it matters about pass breakups. You can be a great corner and only have 1 or 2 ints because qb's pick on the guy on the other side of the field. Nate Clements for example.

    And Smoot has been great with Shawn Springs/Darrell Green and Deion Sanders. How can you say Smoot isn't good?? Joe Horn said Smoot and Antoine are the top cb tandem in the nfl.
