Rep Power: 10 DominickDavisFan76 is ridin' the pine
Default Mike Williams (not worth 1st round?)

(June 7, 2006) -- For now, the Lions are as down on former first-round draft pick Mike Williams as their fans have been on the franchise in recent seasons.

Williams is running with Detroit's third group of wide receivers -- and there are no indications he is going to be moving up the Detroit depth chart anytime soon, even though the receiver was back at practice today.


If Mike Williams really wants to be with Detroit, he hasn't been acting like it.
The Lions have made the decision that, until Williams demonstrates a noticeable change in his behavior -- and few in the organization are expecting anything to be any different any time soon -- he will not be contributing to the franchise.

While the rest of the Lions franchise has taken to new head coach Rod Marinelli's demanding methods, Williams has not. Lions officials believe Williams has not worked hard, has not been accountable, has not carried himself the way a first-round pick or any NFL player should.


So If he gets cut possibly...Would the texans try to get this guy on our team?

More like 1st round trouble maker.

Don't need him on this revamped roster by Kubiak. I like the WR/TE combo of AJ, Moulds, Putzier, and Walter. That should be enough for Carr.

We're stocked at WR and we are not known for bringing in bad character guys. I don't think that Mike Williams is at fault here though, as the Lions have obviously had problems developing WRs.

Moulds isnt going to be here forever and it's really hard to not like a guy whos what...23? and has his size and hands? Motivation can be cured with a change in enviorment. The Lions have a tradition of losing and terrible ownership/management, I'd be bummed to get picked by them too.

I don't see why not.

Remember Chad Johnson? As I recall, he was picked up off the waiver wire and look at him now.

I think a change of scenery would be good for him. He has plenty of potential and could see playing time if given the right motivation. Maybe he's still loyal to his old coach or something.

Either way, if he gets cuts, seeing as we should be first on the waiver wire, we should pick him up. I mean, really, what's it going to hurt? It doesn't COST us anything, does it?

Who would you rather have on the roster? Marcellus Rivers (or another person that won't see serious playing time) or Mike Williams. Come on now...Don't be so knee jerk about things like this.

Chad Johnson was the 5th pick of the 2nd round in 2001 by the Bengals.

Never draft anyone in the 1st round with the names Mike and Williams in that order.

Not Williams, but Mike followed by Williams. Mario is his real name, I hope.

I remember thinking he might fall to the Texans at #13 that draft. There was no way I would think the Lions would pick another wide reciever after Roy Williams and Charles Rogers. I might still have prefered him over Travis Johnson, but if he's a cancer then no way.

I think we could have coached him better than Detroit did and I think we could have shaped him up better as a person than Detroit did. Now he could someday be really good and is given up on just because he's going through a rough patch in his career (even though it's really early for that). If he gets cut and we give him a chance I would be really excited and we would definately have the best top 3 WR tandom in the NFL right up there with Indy.
