    The score was 9 to 3!
    I agree that he played a good game. But the fact remains that he did miss a couple of tackles, and the way he puts his head down he's going to break his neck at some point.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Are you saying those were the only two missed tackles in the game? There were several missed tackles this week & a lot more last week made by other players on the team, yet the only one mentioned is Fred Smoot. It never ceases to amaze me.

    Now let's get back to the subject of T-will, who this thread is about.

    Re: Troy Williamson

    T-Will needs lots of repetition. Run the route, catch the ball.....over and over. No chest catches. Hands. Hands only. Breaks from this will be spent playing foosball or ping pong. Hand/eye games only. Also, have his depth perception checked. Then sleep and repeat.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Q: Troy Williamson has had trouble with a couple of deep passes this year. What is your sense of what is going on there?

    A: First of all, his eyes have been checked and he's 20-20. They have the visual acuity with your peripheral vision. He was checked at the combine with all that kind of thing. I think one of the toughest adjustments in sports is to adjust to a football that's thrown back over your head going full speed and then being able to locate down the field. Obviously, at the professional level you need to be able to make that adjustment and he's demonstrated some problems with that. I thought it was a very good throw and I would have liked to seen him adjust to the football obviously.

    The receiver had so much potential the Vikings made him the seventh overall pick in 2005. But he dropped two more passes Sunday.

    Re: Troy Williamson

    I am not going to read 11 pages to see what this is all about, that's for sure.


    But Williamson was not the only one who dropped passes yesterday.
    Bethel Johnson also showed hands of stone a couple times.

    What annoys me the most is we HAD receivers with good hands in camp - Hosack, for one, Hoag for another - who were cut to keep the likes of Williamson and McMullen.
    All the "play-making" skills don't matter a whit if you can't catch the ball.

    I'm sorry but I just tried to point out a fact.
    Actually I don't even want to get into the Smoot stinks campaign, and I think he played a good game, as well as he did last week.

    And I also agree it's a side step. Let's keep the thread on Troy.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Re: Troy Williamson

    Clearly Troy is not a number one receiver, and it's probably putting too much pressure on him trying to treat him as such.

    The offense is going backwards at the moment. Brad Johnson and Troy Williamson don't pick the team or call the plays. Or sign the wide receivers, for that matter.

    Re: Troy Williamson

    He fumbles on kickoff returns and drops easy passes. He does not deserve to wear and NFL uniform.

    Can we trade him to the CFL for something other than Onterrio or Rickey Williams?
