Why was Williams benched?

Recommended Posts

Because he's not as good catching in the back field like wilkins or hines does plus he's not as shifty either he's good for a 3rd and short situation

Reich said today it was nothing that he did. He though Hines and Wilkins were getting better production.  Hines has actually been running the ball pretty well the last couple of games. Wilkins seemed like he was just quicker then Williams.

Previous two games he was good at all of the above so that is wrong just 8 carries isn't enough for him took 13 against Jags to get 116 yards and took 26 carries 4 days later to get 104.

The only reason why he had alot of yards those games because the o-line made huge holes for him to run thru he can't squeeze by a pile up like wilkins can and he's not shifty like mack is he's just a power runner that's it

I'd like to see Wilkins given a real starting work load to see what he does given the circumstances. I don't know if he'd be better than Mack, but I'll bet it'd be close.

Anyone who has followed this team this season should know that we play running back roulette no matter who is hot. They’ll pull Mack out in the middle of getting hot and put someone else in.

I can’t believe a word coming from this team. Wilson was just held out for game planning and the type of team we were playing and Cain, and on and on. It’s all coach speak. I just tune anything they say out and just watch the games. It is certainly a turn off as a fan to be lied to about every aspect of the game in interviews. I’d rather them just say no comment or we got 53 guys who play the game etc...

That’s what I was thinking. How many were already crowning him as a coveted FA starter somewhere with a big new contract. Many players see a couple really good games and then never see the field again. One hit wonders. Although I do like what Williams showed on the field those two games.

Black magic 8 ball. Should I keep him in? Answer: all signs points to no. Mack, get out, 8 ball says you’re done.  Lol

Yeah,  what do the coaches know.   They only watch them everyday in practice.   What do folks that do this for a living know.

The way this team runs the ball (very well) I don't care who they use.  Unless you are playing fantasy football that is.

They figured the running game out with Williams.  He got his 200 + yards in the last two games....that's memorable for him...

I think I heard he is on his 5th NFL team.  He runs hard, but has limitations.  Probably is a quality guy for a RB squad like we have though.

I’ll put this here for discussion. This seems to be more of the same double speak coaching talk crap

we are getting. Either these guys have some weird plan they aren’t sharing or they are flying by the seat of their pants. If the article says they made an in game adjustment on pecking order of RB, and one assumes it’s based from in game production, then why too could this not apply to the QB situation and usage? Each week, my expectations for how solid this coaching staff is lowers. It’s not at Pagano level but he Pagano has more time to become disheartened. If Reich keeps trying to ramrod JB down the fans throats as “the guy” when he clearly isn’t a franchise type QB, he is going to reach Pagano level soon by being stubborn in this one area while adopting changes in other areas based on performance on the field (Williams/Cain) or in practice (Wilson/Lewis). If you are going to adapt in game changes with performance matchups, that should apply to a QB that’s not Manning or Luck caliber having 1 off game.

    • Johnson is good at tracking the ball that's for sure. Both of those long balls were underthrown and he made good adjustments (2nd one he got taken down by defender)    Pascal is definitely a good option. He's a keeper. That ball he snatched out of the air was impressive.    Campbell. Man, he is frustrating with all these injuries.    I agree about TY, seems like he might be on the backside of his career.    Regardless, WR and TE have to be positions that the team is looking at for draft/FA
    • He also only had like 65 yards passing going into the half. So it’s not like he played lights out in the first quarter
    • Not sure what the timeline was but ,if luck didn't wait so long to retire .Tannshill was a free agent And titans got him.We got hoyer.
    • I think the Broncos had him on their roster  a regular salary rookie contract , it might have affected how the Colts had to pay him too. (Broncos and Colts pay, cap, dead cap, etc...)     Because coaches don''t want to use the players they think has the best chance of winning, thus securing their jobs. Got it.     Coaches see him against their players everyday. There is a thing called 'development'.  And it doesn't require starting NFL games right away.     Since it's Indy, I'll give a race analogy to the NFL saying-   You cannot win the race in the first corner, but you can most certainly lose it.   It's hard for inexperienced QB's to win an NFL game, but very easy for them to lose it.   Those guys practice, study, and play hard.  They want to win. While playoffs were still a possibility, the coaches and team (via reports) were in on JB leading them.  Not sure how it goes from here, though.   I wonder how CK does in the off season, and passing that test, competes in training camp 2020.     GM's make decisions on what personnel to acquire/keep/cut.  Coaches decide who is active, who plays, and at what position(s).  And yes, they communicate with each other to try to work in unison rather than against each other as much as possible.
