Troy Williamson

32 posts in this topic

Troy Williamsom is NOT an NFL wide receiver I am a big supporter of Viking football and of Brad Johnson and yes Brad stopped three drives today with his fumbles and interception but how many drives did Troy Williamson stop? Let this kid go. Buy out his contract, wave him let him get on with a job in the fast food industry. Anything where he does not have to catch something. Terrible, terrible.. Let anyone else be a wide out, just the threat of speed is not enough. Even the ball he caught for 4 yards bounced off the turf. He is not the reason the Vikes lost today but he sure did help. If the Viking coaching staff wants to let the team and the fans know they want to win then field a team. My labs catch more footballs then Troy does and they don't have any hands either!!

With his speed, would he maybe be a decent corner back? I don't think he will ever be a WR.

Arguably the worst 1st Round Draft Pick in Vikings history.

I doubt we would have scored anyway..... frown.gif

For once I'll agree with NAPA. Underwood ranks right up there with all time first round flop choices like Ryan Leaf... I'm talking NFL all around bad choices and he's right up there.

Oh and yes, Williamson still stinks!

I read in the paper that he had his eyes checked and that everything was ok--wow! I don't think that other teams even cover him anymore!

Big difference Willy no-Hands was picked 8th over all highest WR picked in Viking History and received big money, Underwood was selected 29th and received minimal Green backs......

so I guess if you think 29th overall is a first round pick I stand corrected.

I don't understand why they don't bring Carter off the practice squad and at least give him a shot. He had a pretty decent camp and seemed to be a playmaker. I guess Williamsons money/contract is the reason he's still out there. It's embarrassing.

Ya its a joke. They need to make a change somewhere along the line here. It is still early, but this next week is going to make alot of difference.

Your right about Carter they should get him in there. He must have really P.O. some coaches to not be playing if this stiff Williamson is playing. I keep waiting to see a ball passed to Williamson that just sticks in his face mask for a completion.

Williamson is single handidly responsible for half my swearing during a vikings game! I agree speed is a great weapon, but if you can't catch the ball???? I don't understand it...You would think the coaching staff see's the same thing we do?

I like the term "Gazelle"...Fast as a Gazelle and hands like hooves... grin.gif Perfect!!!!! grin.gif

Well if any luck the vikings can manage a decent draft pick and pick up some of the Stud wide recievers entering the draft, but the will probably screw up the draft like they do every year. Remember the time Tice let the clock expire on their 1st round pick.

I was at the game yesterday and from what I saw he was pretty much written out of the offense. He had another one of his classic go-between-the-hands and I think that was the last and only time he was thrown to. I could be wrong with these stats, but you could tell that he was not a big part of any Viking plans.

I'm pretty sure they only went his way once, and it went right through his hands like usual. It would be interesting to see some stats on how many drops he has this year vs. how many he's actually caught.

      Andy,

      Two 22's is fun. I fished a few Frazer spots yesterday with the same poor results. Places that had fish (28-30' off rocky points) before our storms and wind came up empty. I'm with CT, hoping more stable weather will improve the catch. In fact I think I'll go out and try it right now.

      Zach-

      I have been making annual ice fishing trips with friends for about 12 years ago.  We have tried LOTW, Mille Lacs, Red and one other lake that happened to be where we could use a free cabin for a weekend.  With that one exception for the free cabin, we have also rented sleepers.

      We have never made it to Devils Lake, but it is on my personal bucket list just because of the possibility of those monster perch.

      Six years ago, we ended up back on Red and no longer consider any other option.  Here's why:

      • This fishing is good.
      • The Petrowske family are wonderful hosts.
      • No other resort that we have used has come close to being wonderful hosts.  They just didn't put any effort into it.

      Now, I don't know how that you translate to your running portables, but I have never been disappointed with our trips to URL.

      Hope that helps.

      Headed UP NORTH.

      Leaving for Athabasca tomorrow. My trip of a lifetime was there about a decade ago. My buddy Herb and I caught many BIG lake trout about this same time of year. Sadly I could get nobody to go with me since it was a spur of the moment decision. A camping trip I was supposed to be on to Reindeer Lake got called off (not by me) at the last minute. I was bummed so started looking around for other far away big trout and pike lakes.

      Here are pictures from my best laker trip ever. Hopefully this one will be even better!

      Be back to Rainy around the 10th. Herb wants to try Mille Lacs for bass when I get back. Any tips for that lake in mid-October appreciated. Course it will be hard to pry me off Rainy now that the bass are starting to school up.

    • Thanks FishinCT, makes me feel a bit better.....

      Usually we skip the the river until later in the year but it was the cleanest water we found and the only place we caught any fish. Heading out now to give it another try.

      Close to home is possible, try those places first?  I will be out this weekend (if this cold doesnt kill me first)  Better luck next time fins

    • Ok so every year Try to get the guys from work on a fishing trip. Trying to decide on where to go we usually rent a cabin and run portables.

      I am thinking Devils lake, LOW, or Red

      Devils we would do the lodge ice house package because the deal is too good to mess with bringing a trailer and sled or wheelers with.

       

      what would you choose and any other suggestions Leech or Vermillion?
