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.

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.

    • I still have a hard time believing this. Rest in peace Kobe. Prayers for Kobe's and the other victim's families of this awful tragedy.
    • Any one else catch the parts about Chad Kelly. About how he has to show them they can trust him off the field? I’m not pushing for Chad Kelly as our next Qb, but I found that part interesting. Almost makes me wonder IF he’s not gonna get his shot at the starting job regardless of FA or the Draft results.
    • Burrow was not thought of this highly early(when Ballard was rumored to like Herbert and Love). It was kind of an avalanche that was gaining more and more mass and power the more games got played. I don't think it was until November-December that people started talking about Burrow as a no. 1 pick. He just never had that body of work before this year and a lot of his most impressive games and against best opponents were at the end of the year.        I've heard Brady thrown around, but no idea if there is anything real behind those rumors. The rumors say that they are having hard time attracting any fans to their games and their owners think getting a legend like Brady to play for several years for them might jump start their new fanbase in LA. No idea whether to believe this or not. 
    • To me being a boom or bust is kind of a plus for a QB, because the worst you can be is mediocre once that rookie contract comes to an end. I would prefer for whoever we draft to be either great or horrible and for us to know relatively quickly so we can either invest in him or move on quickly. This is part of the appeal with Love for me. The things he needs to improve are heavily coaching based and I think we will have a good idea of where on the spectrum he will end up pretty quickly. For example - if you draft him and he's not ready to start by year 2, this is a red flag and you might start looking for another one. If 2 off-seasons and 1 in-season period are not enough for your coaching staff to get him ready you either have made a mistake with the draft pick or with your coaching staff and I do have good trust in the coaching staff so... 
    • For me the tiers are more important the the specific ranking... I rank players within a tier very similarly and even though I would have preferences within them, I don't feel strongly enough to argue one over the other.    Tier 1(sell the farm for him - i.e. multiple 1sts, multiple day 2 picks, etc) Burrow   Tier 2 (trade a significant asset for him - i.e. a future 1st round pick) Tua(if I have medical guarantees he'd be alright health-wise)   Tier 3 (trade a medium level asset for him(i.e. a second, a third...) or take him at #13) Love Herbert Tua(if our medical staff cannot give you any guarantees whatsoever either way -for example, there were some reports that it might be too early before the draft to tell whether he will be good or not)   Tier 4 (second round) Eason Fromm     Tier 5 (third-fourth round) Gordon(have to do more work on him, might change his ranking) Hurts   Tier 6 (round 5-7) Tua(if the medicals come bad and there is high risk of reinjury/retirement/not full recovery/etc.) Tyler Huntley Nate Stanley     I'm still watching some QBs so that's not my final ranking.
