    I was hoping the Texans would draft him in 2005, thinking he would fall to us. Now I'm glad he didn't. Three wide recievers in three years, and only one has turned out to be even halfway decent (Roy Williams).

    He has not been injured--he has been overweight (to the tune of several hundred thousand dollars in fines by the team) and has PO'd the coaching staff. Not sure how smart they are though when they release a #2 pick WR, bench a top 10 WR and sign Bradford to a $2 mil signing bonus and then cut him 4 games into the season. Roy Williams has been begging them to get Mike Williams in the game when he hasn't been bragging about putting up 40 points.

    That's Matt Millen for you. His decisons make Charley Casserly's choices look genius like.

    Attitude Adjustment is needed! He is very talented, but a sour ME ME ME attitude does not fly with coaches.

    He actually had a pass thrown to him this past week though, so he's making progress.

    He dropped it.

    Good story, but way back when here in L.A. when Mike Williams was the thing at USC, the local radio team here interviewed Keyshawn Johnson, another USC WR alum. Well, right after Mike Williams broke some kind of single season TD Reception record (or some record, can't remember), the local radio team asked Me-shawn what he thought of Mike Williams as a WR and Me-shawn responded flatly...

    "He's fat! How can a guy that fat catch so many TD's?"

    Now that is valuable pre-draft analysis that you don't get from the combine.

    One would've thought that a year out of football would result in something like this...

    Speaking of failed Lions receivers who are probably suffering from the munchies, where's Charles Rogers?

    Tried out for the Pats, but Gaffney won the job.
