Troy Williamson?

15 posts in this topic

What do we do with this guy?

I want to keep him, only because he was a high draft pick.

Didn't we have another WR (Hassan Jones) that suffered from the dropsies and didn't he go to a hypnotist to improve. And didn't it work? I know Jones never was a great WR but I do beleive he did start holding onto the ball and would make some fantastic catches. Maybe the hypnotist thing was just a urband legend I heard??

What do you think? Keep him or dump him?

Obvisiously, he doesn't have much trade value at this point and he is a 1st round pick so that seems out of the question.

Let me know your thoughts

Just another Underwood! That's why I would rather have a free agent then a draft pick any day. With a free agent you most likely know what you're going to get. A draft pick may be good in college but you never truely know what you're gong to get in the NFL.

I'd say keep him another year, and see if the rookie jitters are now gone. He was able to get himself open sporadically, and just needs to concentrate more on the ball as it's approaching. Not sure if he is a little gun-shy about getting hit pretty hard, but that MIGHT explain why some balls were dropped.

I'd give it another year to see if he develops more. If anything, we could always get him to dip his hands in pine tar :-)

Keep him one more year and send him to chris carter to learn how to catch.

Package him up and trade him off, cut your loss. He had a year to learn how to catch last season. Carters camp will make you better but if you can't catch to start with. Running routes to make them look pretty and then drop the ball when it gets there is no improvement. Can you tell I am no fan of Williamson.. smirk.gif

jake reed had problems catching the ball also and was diagnosed with some sort of vision problem then was able to get that adjusted and was able to perform better.I agree keep butterfingers williamson and see if he has overcome the droppsies after all its not like we got a boat load of talent at reciever i noticed joe horn was released by the saints whats your take on picking him up he is a veteran reciever who we sure could use but the downsides are his best years behind him and he has had a handful of onfield and off field antics dont think childress would deal with that he also would come at a price.

Has posted earlier Horn is ready for the Old FOlks Home. How about Dante Stallworth instead? Drew Bennett? I would rather hve both of these then the reported Ted Ginn Jr. who they have sellected the Viks take with their first pick.

You have more too gain by keeping him around and seeing if he can overcome his problems. Its his 3rd year and cutting him wouldnt save any cap room. He had a solid start too last season and the drop in the last drive of the bears game sent him spriralling downward. I have a bad feeling hes just plain a bust but you have too keep him around this year.

Drew Bennett signed with St.Louis. Kevin Curtis was in town but who knows where that will go.

Starter to the inactive roster...

We do not need another doped up wide reciever. Stallworth is one strike away from a big suspension. Besides, he is injury prone and highly over rated.

I didnt catch the hole story on KFAN this morning, but they were talking about Troy and his catching problems. Seems chili and other coaches, from watching films figure his problem has something to do with his helmet confused.gif So if they get him a new helmet, he should be on this way to the pro bowl next year grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Yep. It's true. Alot of fisherpeople aren't very good in the open water months because of the tiller-handle on their outboard. It's throwing off their concentration.

His helmet is bobbling around out there thus scurring his vision. 2 sizes smaller, a little lighter meshing on the facemask, and less padding and he'll be 1,500 yards +.

Millions of dollars of video equiptment finally pays off to find that Troy has been wearing Matt Birk's helmet this whole time. Birk never noticed the first year cuz he was out for hernia surgery.

Micheal Bennett had problems getting past the line of scrimmage because he was wearing Gary Anderson's old jock strap.

Ain't that a shame.

On second thought, maybe Troy should just skip the helmet all together??? confused.gifconfused.gif

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury. Too much mercury can cause lasting problems with understanding and learning. But studies show children benefit developmentally when moms eat fish low in mercury during pregnancy.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.
