    Nice read, I especially liked this part:
    “The guys that we have on defense are a bunch of great guys,” Williams said of his teammates. “They’re a fun group to be around and I look forward to coming to work everyday.”
    MW will be a star!

    I'm exited about Williams I think he's a solid replacement for Dwight Smith who I thought was a good football player. Williams brings more to the table in coverage and probably tackles as well. What I like about Williams is the CB talent he possess, he runs great, has terrific hops and covers alot of ground smoothly. I really like our tandem now but when Tyrell gets in there we will have two CB like talents playing the Saftey position for us. Its gonna make a great secondary with the physical corners on the outside. I not only look foward to this season but upcoming seasons.

    Madieu is a VERY solid player. My bro is a big time Bengals fan and hates that they let him get away. I think he is very under the radar for us with the trade for Allen and signing of Berrian ... but he will also be a key piece to our big season.

    Completely fired up about this acquisition.
    I'm tellin' y'all, we are gonna be giving this defense a nickname; it is going to be BADASS!

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    This defense will be a huge upgrade in talent from what he has had in his career so far

    As a Bengal fan as well as Vikings fan, I love this acquisition.

    I can't wait for this preseason/season to see how everyone gels.
    Vegans are eating the rainforests. =(

    Re: Madieu Williams - Good in Purple

    Ok, since a few of you have mentioned that you watch Bengals games fairly regularly, have any of you before this off-season really thought of medieu as a ball hawking safety?
    I really don't get that impression when I watch him... he seems like more of a physical, in the box type of guy to me, so I don't know where all these analysts are getting this ball-hawk stuff.
    I've mentioned this to a good friend of mine who is a huge williams fan (autographed 'gals jersey and everything) and he agrees with me.
    do any of you feel the same way?
    I feel sort of like one media personality said it, and nobody else really remembers how he plays and just went along with that guy... a similar situation to jackson- How many of these national media people denouncing him have even watched him play?
