ANDRE IS FASTER THAN ROY. andre won indor 60m and 100 meter outdoor titles in collage the big east championships in 02. i dont have official times but it had to be around the 10.2 range. thats pretty fast for a 6.3 230 dude plus andre ran 4.38 in combine
Roy Williams was third at the Texas state high school championships his senior year in high school with a time of 10.48 in the 100 meter dash. He also set a state record in the long jump with a leap of 25-6. He also finished second in the high jump by clearing 6-10 (although he had the same height as the winner, he was second because he had more misses during the competition). All by himself, he finished in fourth place among all 5A schools at the 2000 meet.
Roy's 2000 state meet

Roy also ran a hand-timed 10.08 that year.
Roy's 10.08

Andre Johnson was first at the Big East conference championship his junior year in college with a with a time of 10.59 in the 100 meter dash. If he had run in the same high school race as Roy Williams, he would have finished tied for fifth place.

On offense you guys might be slightly ahead of them, but not by much. Davis is still a 2nd year player, same for AJ and Carr well he is in the same boat as Joey H. You forget you are coming to our house. We are a much better home team. Also last time I checked it doesn't matter if you win by 1 or 100 it still is a win.

Just an FYI, I think overall we are pretty even talent wise, but I don't see you guys beating us at home. We should prevail 28-14.

Alot of you guys are predicting beating us by 10-14 points. I doubt that at all maybe 2 or 3 at the most, if you win. You won't though!
Holy Smokes! How do the Lions fans come off as If they are the defending SB champs? They won a road game and it is considered a huge milestone. The Texans beat Miami on the road for there home opener last year and went 5-11. The patriots went 0-2 to start the season and won the SB. If we are even talent wise why do you have the Lions scoring twice as many points as the Texans? The Lions havent won a playoff game in what...35yrs? Your coach said that both of our teams are similar in that they are both developing clubs. What?! almost 40yrs of existance? You guys have no idea what its like to be an expansion team with NO debth. Also, EVERYBODY thinks that there home field is brutal. It just another road game bro. Also, at the RB position tenure is not as important. Earl Campbell won the rusing title his rookie year. And Oh Yea that Chicago defense is some powerhouse Im sure we suck compared to them. Bottom line is you SHOULD win this game easily considering the Texans are in there 3rd yr. and they are on the road.

This "Ford Field is a tough place for visiting teams" is a cute idea and all, but it didn't seem to stop the Chargers from whipping the Lions in Detroit last December, did it?

So before we continue with the "nyah nyah, Texans lost to SD" stuff, let's remember that the Lions laid an egg at home against the Chargers too, late last season. Back then, there was NO DOUBT that SD was horrible. Heck, I think they even coughed up the ball more than Detroit, and the Lions STILL lost. Anything can happen.

Lions beat the Cowboys 38 to 6 in 1991, in the Divisional playoffs, after a bye week from their 12-4 record, and proceeded to lose to the Redskins in the NFC championship game, who went on to win the superbowl against the Bills, a team the lions had just beaten a month earlier, at Buffalo.

2000 was a bad year. Coach gone, lost a lot of players, had to completely rebuild the team from the Bobby Ross power football to west coast offense. You are developing, we are re-emerging after a rough stretch, something all NFL teams (including the 4 time world champ Detroit Lions) go through. Team has been in existence since 1930, and in Detroit since 1934.

I see this as a close game that the Lions win.

AJ's strength allows him to retain his speed while wearing pads.

Default Lions fan here

Kingz seems to be overconfident, its True we didn't look that good. But it was 2 weeks since our starters ha played. No excuses this game will be tough for the Lions. Should be close, but we usually play well at home. roy and Andre are very similiar both will be pro bowl WR i think. Once Joey and Mooch open things up on Offense it should be interesting.

Roy has shown some amazing skills thus far. I only hoped we drafter Andre instead of C Rog. Would be nice to have the two lining up this year.

I think this game will go into OT. By no means are either of us where we want to be.

Personally.... I think Dunta is gonna have trouble covering Roy, or hell, even Glenn is. I think he has 100+ yards and a TD.

Texas never played South Carolina while Roy was there.

In fact, I don't know if the two schools have ever played each other. I know they haven't played each other over the last 15 years.

Yeah, Aaron Glenn really looked like a Pro Bowler today against Roy.

Roy Williams will have a tough time making an impact this week. As for the rest of the season, i think he will be a stud, this week he will learn alot since he will be the key focus of the defense.
Yeah, Aaron Glenn really shut down Roy Williams today.

Roy Williams is even better than I expected. I like Andre alot but......Roy Williams has awesome hands, both have terrific work ethic and overall professional behavior, class acts. Detroit clearly had the class draft of this past season, the Texans fared better than average both Robinson & Babin are solid but the Lions have a #1 WR with a #1 RB plus extra #1 pick next year. At least they (Lions) can take solace in the fact that while Charles Rogers is a bust (Twice broken collar bone) Roy Williams is not only the equal of Andre Johnson he looks to be worth that #2 overall pick.

Even though I pretty much expected this from Roy, I was still a bit surprised. The Longhorns non-use of Roy last year really did a number on our collective memories.

I didn't realize that Detroit had drafted 4 Longhorns in the past 4 years. It's easy to find bargains from Texas, I guess. The coaches at UT have no clue how to tap into the talent they recruit. It's such a waste.
