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 predict all older QBs go to the Raiders because Gruden loves QBs. Rivers, Brady, and Brees all fight for the starting spot. Vegas puts odds on it. They take turns during the season to keep them fresh and Gruden finally quits scowling and is happy . Lol.
    • You must have reading deficiencies.    I've stated the same thing over and over again.   And you keep getting it wrong.    I have to believe you're smart enough to being that on purpose.   It's part of your Trump-style to arguing and fighting.    Never be wrong.    Never admit to anything.   Change the subject.   Move the goal line.   Always be on offense.    Keep attacking.   What bothers you most about me is that you can't fool me.    I can spot a con artist, and I have.    I hope this gets to your eyes before a moderator removes it.     
    • You see?    There you go again.    That's the whole point.   You pic proves nothing.   Absolutely, nothing.    Saying it does, doesn't make it so.  All it proves is that you have Slingbox -- now.     And, or course,  you ignore what I wrote.    You've not said a word about Slingbox for 5 months.    Until now.   Ignored that fact every time I called you on it.  Have you noticed how many times I've brought up your Slingbox argument that you've never responded to?    Why?    Because you can't.    Why didn't you claim Slingbox 5 months ago?     Why didn't you claim it during the season when the issue surfaced again?     Why did you wait until now,  5 months later?     And even now, with all the endless back and forth,  you STILL CAN'T EXPLAIN IT!     Busted.   Who knows?    Maybe you got Slingbox for Christmas?    Makes no difference.     You have no credibility.    And I've demonstrated that over and over again.     As for another response,  that I sent you?   I have no idea what that is.     Maybe I agreed with you?    Did you ever think of that?    Oh,  why would you ever think that was even possible?   Agreeing with you, or you with me,  is not part of the deal.   Sorry you don't get your way all the time.   Oh, how unfair.....       This is what happens when Control Freaks don't get their way.  
    • Jeudy and Hilton together would be pretty special.  No more holding the ball as if nobody is open. 
    • Love scares you because he didn't have a good 2019 season.    A season in which he lost 9 former offensive starters,  and his coaching staff and the system they played in a very successful 2018 season.      In 2018,  Love completed 64% of his passes for 32 TD's and only 8 interceptions.   Those are quality numbers.     If the numbers were  reversed and his 2018 numbers in 2019,  then you wouldn't be scared of him.       Just remember the circumstances that surrounded the kid this past season.   And he just had a good all-star game playing with talent and better coaching.    You might want to consider that as well.     Just food for thought......
