    Re: Is Williamson a first round flop? Or a victim?

    What I hate most about this discussion is how the Vikings use their supposed #1 receiver.
    Looking at this chart, at least against the Pats, Troy got some throws his way.
    In the three previous games he was ABSENT WITHOUT LEAVE catching a combined five passes.
    That is not how you utilize your weapons!
    Of course those will argue that you need a QB who can throw and some will argue that BJ can throw.
    But as I grew up and understood things, "The proof is in the pudding!"
    TWill needs to see the ball more and yes he may end up dropping more, but we'll never know if he continues to average only 3.4 catches a game!

    Re: Is Williamson a first round flop? Or a victim?



    i didnt read through the whole 5 pages so ill just throw this out there...does anyone know if cris carter still runs his FAST camp...cause if he does, TWill needs to go there in the off season...for that matter, call up CC and see if he can come in to help...

    or...



    ive even seen tori holt catching balls from a machine, while standing about 8 feet from it...he works on not blinking when the ball is coming in...maybe TWill's problems are that minor...it always seems to be in the right spot...just not always ready to catch it with his hands (off his chest/head)...

    but on the flop point, i would say no...

    peace...
    peace...

    Re: Is Williamson a first round flop? Or a victim?

    Is it just me or was our best offensive outing when he was knocked out of the game at Seattle?
    I am not convinced that Johnson believes he will catch the ball when he throws it to him.


    It seems that anything that had Tices fingerprints on it was a flop.

    When it comes to the deep ball, you could be correct. The same thing has crossed my mind.
    Even babies know the difference.

    Re: Is Williamson a first round flop? Or a victim?

    Our current starting QB cannot use Troy Williamson effectively simply because BJ cannot throw "stretching" passes. A speedstar who needs separation, and with his speed can get" needs a stronger armed QB. Remember, at the time of his draft, we have a strong armed QB, he just had a weak brain and then a bum knee. I will not call Williamson a bust or flop until he gets a season with Tarvarius who has a cannon even by NFL standards.

    Its too early to tell if he's a flop or not. Catching a few of those wideopen sure touchdown passes would go a long ways towards losing the stigma of being a bust.

    :
    My poor mis-guided lad. These are Tice's #1 & #2 draft choices from his tenure as head coach;

    2002-2005 #1

    Troy Williamson
    Erasmus James
    Kenechi Udeze
    Kevin Williams
    Bryant McKinnie

    2002-2005 #2

    Raonall Smith
    Kevin Williams
    Dontarrious Thomas
    Marcus Johnson

    With the exception of Ranall Smith, all are either starters or solid backups on the team today.

    Tice also brought in the following players;

    Pat Williams
    Brad Johnson
    Darren Sharper
    Napolean Harris
    Antoinne Winfield
    Marcus Robinson
    Travis Taylor
    Jermaine Wiggins

    Just to name a few.

    Now are you trying to tell me these players Tice brought to the team are all flops?

    How many do you fingerprint as flops?

    I think after the Niners game yesterday my question has been answered.
