    Re: Troy Williamson...

    How do you think I feel sporting his name? Hes really let me down early on in his career.Its not like hes not getting reps and snaps.Hes droppin passes left and right.He could potentialy be a good number 2 guy, but we need a number 1 first.

    Enter Calvin Johnson

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!

    I agree on this.
    He needs to learn to use his hands more.
    We should send him down to Cris Carter for the offseason.
    I see this over and over again. I'm afraid what ails him can't be coached.

    I have HD TV and have seen no replays but I swear the one eye I could see was closed when the ball hit the shoulder pad!

    How many chances do you want him to have?

    BUST!

    Re: Troy Williamson...

    I am not quite ready to label TWill a bust yet.
    I would rather wait and see how he can develop under a QB that can air the ball out to him.
    Right now he has some serious confidence issues, and and those can be coached out.
    I think next season will be the do or die season for him.

    Twill is a bust! why? Because even if he could be taught/coached how to catch the ball, we have no one to show him how. Not other WRs, not caoches. CC could, but then he could coach anyone.

    Two articles that will enlighten
    :

    [size=14pt]Dropped passes are mind over matter[/size]
    Independent doctors, none of whom has worked with the Vikings' Troy Williamson, believe his problems might be in his head.
    BY SEAN JENSEN
    Pioneer Press

    The Fall of Troy in Minnesota isn't nearly as tragic as the mythological Greek version.

    But the contemporary collapse is almost as hard to believe.

    Here's how the tale unfolded: Troy Williamson epically rises from obscure receiver out of South Carolina to seventh overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft. His speed is legendary, and he flashes his potential during an otherwise quiet rookie season.

    [size=14pt]Troy Williamson: He's sure he has a grip on it[/size]
    What made Troy Williamson drop passes? A lack of confidence,the receiver says in a Q&A.

    By Mark Craig, Star Tribune

    Troy Williamson

    Ps-s-s-t: Jackson starting, pass it on
    Vikings receiver Troy Williamson had his eyes checked earlier this month, doesn't believe in sports psychologists and blames his 11 dropped passes this season on nothing or no one but lost confidence that he feels he's regaining.

    Re: Troy Williamson...

    I understand more coaching could help him, but no coach can catch the ball for you.

    Any player, even in high school, that starts should be able to catch a ball that hits them right in the chest/hands at least at a minimum 80% of the time. No excuse.

    For an NFL player to drop 1 of every 3 passes in their hands is pathetic.

    I don't know how you can teach that. Maybe fundamentals, but I'm sure they already have worked on that.

    It seems like he drops the easy passes, but catches the really hard ones...just need to throw terribly thrown balls at him and i think he'll catch them!

    It's a lot tougher to adjust to those deep passes than you think. especially when you have two defenders nipping at your heels. Had TJ's pass been more in front of Twill than behind (which it's Twill's duty to adjust to) he would have made that catch and taken it home. I don't blame him too badly for that pass. I do think we should have had him in more throughout the game, to make them fear the deep bomb some more. and why didn't we throw long more often? seemed not enough for me, even though our WR's can't catch. I'd rather throw past the 1st down marker and balls get dropped than throw for 3 yds when a defender is right on top of th receiver....idk, just my cents.
