Well, when he gets cut in 2 weeks, you quickly learn he didn't impress the coaching staff either.

Do you feel better only coming in the forum to gloat about a guy that lucked into making the team? So what? I was wrong about one of the cuts, so was everybody else. Thats why I'm not employed by the Colts, but neither are you. I still feel the same way, he isn't that good.

Nah, I like laughing at the beligerent airmchair GM's that are militant about their opinions. You saw nothing from Kerwynn Williams that would suggest he "Isn't that good". He's a gem that'll pay off in the long run. And didn't you tell me to knock myself out if you were wrong?

 

Calm down francis, it's lighthearted ribbing, you were confident in your opinion, as was I, one of us was right, the other wrong. It's not a big deal.

 

And I'm an oldschool poster, I've been on this board since long before they migrated it over to the MyColts system. So I don't come here to "gloat", but your post stood out, and warranted my attention.

 

 

P.S. Lucked himself into a roster spot? Get over it bro. You had no idea what you were talking about in regards Kerwynn

Thats all well and good, but I still don't think he'll be around long. This is by no means what our roster will look like in a couple of days or a week or so down the road. If Grigson finds somebody else that was cut loose from another team, Williams will be one of the 1st to go. 4 RB's is a luxury and will be one of very first positions that will be cut down if/when Grigson finds somebody else. I'm sticking with my evaluation too that Williams isn't very good. IMO, he has very poor vision and has poor decision making skills. Could that eventually develop over time? Of course, but I doubt it will be with the Colts.

late round pick, 4 practice games into his career he is not expected to be, Plus our special teams blocking was garbage

People were acting as if he was a savior at RB though. They made unrealistic comparisons and some still swear he's a gem. Usually even with only 4 practice games there would be something to back that up if that sort of talent really existed. There was nothing IMO that most other late rd. RB's couldn't do too. He looked very average(at best) IMO from what I seen of him. I only attended 2 training camp days this yr. so he possibly showed a lot more in the other days in practice that the coaching staff liked, but when I was there and the 4 preseason games, there was nothing that stood out.

Care to come back and try to rub anything in my face now. I'm betting you won't.

That is why we don't rub things in here.....even though we are going to sign Williams to the PS if he clears waivers which he should.  Good call Balzer!

 

 

 

I have no problem with him going to the PS, but I never liked the idea of carrying 4 RB's.

To me, it was the combination of tight ends, runningbacks and fullbacks. I'm not sure we have a need for four tight ends, but I agree that we didn't really need four runningbacks. I had Williams on my final 53 because I thought he was more deserving than Dominique Jones. As it stands, neither of them are on the 53 man roster, but Jones is on the practice squad. I wonder if we held on to Williams for an extra day so that he'd be less likely to be claimed, and then we could stash him on the practice squad. I assume we'll put him on the practice squad if he clears waivers (he kind of had a good showing in the last game).

We got what should have been expected out of Williams....He flashed his raw speed and big play potential but he also showed why he went as late as he did in the draft. He is indecisive at times, many times he will make the wrong decisions, sometimes he could break a big one. He showed at times a lack of patience for a hole to open. He has raw skill that needs time to develop. For a guy like Wiliams Special Teams was a great chance for him, Done right  the oppsing team is NOT supposed to get down field as quick as they did leaving Williams a little more time to scan the field and based on what he sees and choose the best lane, we couldn't do that. Heck on the play that Cleary got hurt it was a special teams play where somehow we ended up with Dontay Moch on Delano Howell....I think Williams had enough room to bounce that outside (10:30 in the 3rd Quarter of Bengals game)

    • If we don't resign Rivers or roll with Eason for the following year, I hope we trade for a veteran QB vs. taking one in the draft.    This is assuming that Lawrence, Fields, and Lance will be out of reach.    Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz are two QB's I believe will be "available" given a solid offer. Stafford will be 33 by the start of next season, but he still has 4-6 good years left.   Carson Wentz is not doing so hot right now, but I believe that he still has a lot of potential with the right coach.
    • My post did not age well.   Congrats to the Raiders, they looked pretty good.  Got the W in their new stadium.   I still don't know what is what in this league yet.
    • Welp, I dunno if I won or not since I missed Thursday but I will gladly take 14 picks right any week.  Been a while.
    • Pascal is an X or big slot. Campbell is in the mode of traditional slot and Z. I've said since before the season started that as Pittman comes on, Pascal would work more out of the slot. So yes, kinda, but Pascal is certainly not a like for like, doesn't replace what Campbell brings, or fill the void of that type of WR.  Dulin, Fountain, Harris, and Johnson (if he signs) are the guys with similar traits.    What I'd like to see X - 70% Pittman, 20 % Patmon, 10% Pascal S - 30% Dulin, 30% Pascal, 20% TY, 20% Patmon Z - 60% TY, 40% Fountain   (nobody over 80 total %)   Pittman made a big jump in snaps from W1 to W2, We all expected him to steal snaps from Pascal at X as the season went on, but that's likely expedited. The above is my long term hope. Short term, I'd expect Pascal to get a higher % to start at Slot. The injury to PC though may end up interestingly enough, mean just a shuffle and a chance for Patmon (who is very unlike PC).
