Vikings | Super Bowl Here We Come: P. Williams
Sun, 10 Jul 2005 06:14:11 -0700

Paul J. Letlow, of the News Star, reports Minnesota Vikings DT Pat Williams is very confident of the team's chances in 2005. "Oh, we're going to the Super Bowl," Williams said. "Mark that down. Tell everybody. 'We're going to the Super Bowl.' We'll be in Detroit." The team signed him to clog the middle along with All-Pro DT Kevin Williams. Williams was hurt when the Buffalo Bills did not re-sign him. "It was hard when they decided not to re-sign me," Williams said. "They hurt me some. But management there now isn't good." Williams likes the leadership in Minnesota saying the major free agent acquisitions by the Vikings are all leaders. Williams said he signed with Minnesota for a chance to get "the ring."

Apparently he turned down the Browns as well, and wasn't too happy about the Bills managment. Sounds a little like sour grapes to me.

"Mark that down. Tell everybody. 'We're going to the Super Bowl.' We'll be in Detroit."
I don't know about the Super Bowl, but the Vikings are a lock to be in Detroit. November 16th, in fact.

I remember the day that Williams signed with Minnesota. After the Texans couldn't get a deal done with Williams, they phoned Payne who was on his way to New York to speak with the Jets. Fortunately, the Texans were able to close the deal on the phone & Payne never spoke with the Jets.

The Bills team he left was better than the team he is joining, and now he is going to the superbowl?


Keeping dreaming Fat Pat, you should have stayed in Buffalo. 8-8 in either city, but you don't have to move.
