Nope. I like the kid. But I'd cut him.Am I the only one who thinks Williams is so over rated on this board? He has a few special catches otherwise he drops a ton of balls.
I made this analogy of PW early in his rookie year....
PW reminds me of Chris Chambers who some fans thought was great. Both can make spectacular catches, but those get negated by the poor plays. QBs only completed 48.7% of passes throwing to CC during his career and so far QBs only complete 52.6% of their passes when throwing to PW. If you took out the two games in which PW was primarily covered with a PS and ST player getting their only game action in the secondary that completion % drops down below 50%.
I agree with you on Bowden. IMO he is the 4th best WR on the team.
But I do think Grant would finally be used to his full potential on this team and the team would want to see what that looks like. Plus he’s been the guy putting in the most work. Trying to improve himself and help his QB. A bird in the hand is worth 3 injured/opt out players who never really posted great numbers either.. Grant isn’t better than Waddle or Wilson and I think Bowden is actually a better WR than Grant. I don’t hold it against Wilson and Hurns for opting out last season and I don’t think the the coaching staff does either. In fact they drafting Holland in the second round of the draft and he opted out of playing at Oregon last season.
I can't disagree that he has missed a lot of time, but I'm pretty sure a torn ACL one season and a weird season ending foot injury the next aren't indicators of future season-ending injuries.Parker. Williams can’t stay healthy. The most important ability is availability PW has never had it. It’s not like he’s going to get more durable.
Now THAT is possible.
But the painful recoil from the Wilkins jump is clear.
Oh yeah... Wilkins landed on his foot. On the video, you can clearly see Williams recoil in pain. After the TD, he was dancing across the end zone. Wilkins caused that injury with his silliness... just like when he body-slammed the commish on draft night. The kid doesn't realize his own strength.Pretty sure it was Wilkins who caused the injury.
I remember watching the press conferences the week after the game and both Wilkins and Flores danced around the media’s questions when asked the cause of the injury. That just confirmed it to me at the time.
