    I really hope that was a joke. If it wasn't, you should be ashamed to show your face around here. The guy is a bust. He is lazy, fat, and slow; how does that translate to the greatest WR ever?

      I think the best thing for the lions is to deal McCown and MWilliams to Oakland, getting something in return for them, before they both leave or get cut.

      let McCown start the year as the QB, and then fade out as Russell takes over. Let MW try to get a spot as the 3rd WR there and see if he can light up his career after pocketing all his guarenteed money for nothing in return.

        Both Gallery and Mike Williams are busts.

          Unless your QB is a lefty, you don't take a RT #2 overall. I'm with those that voiced that sentiment. Gallery was supposed to be a franchise LT. Scott billed him as "just a level below Tony Boselli" in his initial scouting report. Gallery was also called the "safest pick" in the draft. He has performed fine, but in comparison to his draft status, he was not good. Unless Gallery gets to a few Pro Bowls at RT (unlikely), he will be considered a bust, but not a massive one.

          Williams is a bust right now, but he has more time to turn it around. He really hasn't seen the field.

            Mike Williams is a loser. Maybe if the guy dedicated himself to being a good football player, he just may succeed. Send him to the Raiders so he can suck closer to home.

              That post had no positive or redeeming value at all. I wouldn't classify a guy who has struggled in part because the court system screwed him over as a loser. Williams got unlucky with the courts, and he had to spend a year out of football training for the draft. It is very hard to stay in football shape and also come in and produce when you're not on a team and not actually playing. For his rookie year, Williams was trying to adjust and was out of shape. Right after, the Lions changed coaches and brought in the Martz system, which doesn't fit Williams' style at all.

              I consider this more bad luck than anything else.

                What bad luck? Anyone who knew slant of the courts in this country knew Williams had little chance. The courts ruled the right way.

                If Mike Williams are that talented, he could fit into any system. The guy is a bum.

                  Not really true. There was a window where players could declare for the NFL Draft, and Williams took it. He was stupid because he retained an agent and forfeited his eligibility. The problem then became that he was unable to return to USC. I think the NCAA screwed him, but it was a cautionary tale against declaring against the rules.

                  Fact is, some players fit better into systems than others. Williams is not a vertical threat, so having him in Martz's offense, even as a slot receiver, is a waste of his talent. If Martz really wanted to use him (which he apparently didn't), he would have found a role for him. Instead, they're selling him elsewhere for 20 cents on the dollar.

                  To spite EA and the Lions, I'm praying that Mike Williams kicks ass in Oakland, or wherever he ends up.

                    The rules of hiring an agent causes you to loose all your college eligability is quite clear. The only one who screwed Mike Williams is Mike Williams.

                    Ricky Proehl wasn't a track man and he did OK under Mike Martz. The fact that Mike Williams busted out under two different coaching regimes should tell you something.

                      I already admitted that Williams was stupid for hiring an agent, but that's done. 2005 was lost due to his being out of football shape, which was basically his fault for hiring an agent.

                      2006 was lost because Martz and Marinelli wanted their own guys to play. Martz brought Furrey in, and he knew the system already. Williams may have had a few work ethic things, but he never got a fair shot under Mooch, and Marinelli and Martz wanted their own guys. He was blackballed.

                      I think the guy has talent and can play in the NFL. I'd like to see him get a shot.
