    Winfield?

    Sorry if this is common knowledge, but when Smoot went down why is it that Brian Williams took over as the starter over Winfield? I thought the depth order was Smoot-Winfield-Williams?

    There was so much hype when Winfield joined our team last year but now we hardly hear from him. Can somebody enlighten me please?

    Winfield IS a starter...on the other side of the defensive backfield.

    We hardly hear from him? He leads the team in tackles. And has 3 interceptions. He is a stud. Why B. Will is infront of him I don't know.

    Against the #2 receiver though... why does Williams take over with the #1 receiver?

    Smoot is supposovely a better cover corner and Brian Williams took his spot. If I remember right the Vikings don't put a certain corner on a certain receiver, they just take a side. (Correct me if I'm wrong?)

    Most of the time a corner takes a side, and this is what is probably happening now.

    BWill is taller than AWin...so maybe they figure that he is the better matchup against taller WRs. Whatever it is, it's working...so let's hope that they don't mess with it!

    I'm pretty sure this is the last year on Williams' deal. My guess is that he'll leave here in the offseason for the chance to be a starter somewhere else.

    bwill is on his last year, he was restricted last year and no one took him cause they'd have to give up a first rounder for him. i know he wants to be a starter so he will leave probably, unless he gets paid more to be a backup for us?
