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.

Looks like it's me. :clap:

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)

    • That sounds like what I say about Mets acquisitions. High-priced free agents from other teams often disappoint. That is why I prefer going with young, home-grown players. They seem to be more hungry and play better. It seems like when star players move on to other teams, they disappoint. I think Harper and Machado have not performed as well as was expected for $30 million+/year. But Mike Trout is still doing well with the Angels after signing that big contract.   I wonder what @Jay Kirk is thinking. He loves his Cardinals and is usually optimistic. This must be difficult for him to watch.
    • Is there a video of this we can watch? I really want something with Ebron on it but  going to wait and see if he stays here. I think I am going to get something with Moore’s number on it like a sweatshirt
    • By your son a neck beard hat with a 12 on it. he won't grow out of that as fast...
    • I didn't see a topic for this. If there is one, please feel free to merge.   On Tuesday, the NFL Network had their AFC South day, which aside from Darius Leonard being featured on Total Access, included the 30 minute season reviews for all 4 AFC South teams.   I've watched a couple times already and it's got me stoked for the next season. This episode really seemed to highlight Ebron and I can't say enough about how much love he shows for this team. My son has outgrown his size 2T Hilton jersey, and I think Ebron might be the next one I buy for him. Either that or Leonard, who is understandably featured a lot in this episode as well.   Last year was a hell of a thrill ride. I think, partially, because the expectations vs the reality was so different in a positive way.  This year should be just as thrilling, but only if we can keep the enthusiasm with the higher expectations. I, for one, am PUMPED!   Go Colts!
    • MVP hit HR #20 on the season as well. Glad to see Yu finally get a win at Wrigley. Brewers and Cards both won so it was much needed. 52-44 now on the season. We are still 2.5 ahead of the Brewers and 3 ahead of the Cards in the NL Central going into July 18th. I will take it. Cubs are off tomorrow.
