  • What do you honestly expect out of Williamson this year?

    Ok, I know everyone loves to say he's a bust and what not, but what do you, honestly, expect out of him this year? He's been working with specialists at Nike (who knows if that's really any help or not) and apparently they found something wrong with his eyes, where one is weaker than the other and that it affects his peripheral vision. We all know he had alot of dropped passes that should have been caught.

    But he has the talent, the speed, and if he can work on his hands, he could be money. This is his 3rd year, the infamous "breakout" year for wide receivers. Does Williamson shine or prove that he really is a bust?

    I'm going to be optimistic and say that he has a good year. I think 60+ catches, 1,500 yards, and 7 touchdowns is not out of the question. However, with Jackson at QB, it will be tough for us to get a good passing game going. I think we'll see alot of YAC from Troy this year.

    Well, this could just a huge homer pick, and for all i know make no sense at all, but i'm figuring in the two years that he's been on our team, he's had 3 starting QBs throwing too him, two diffrent head coachs, and two diffrent offensive systems. Now it sounds like he's working hard this offseason, we should have some consistency at QB and Jackson has a good arm, so hopefully he can get it down the feild, unlike Brad Johnson. Plus with the our two RB system we now have with Chester Tayor and Adrian Peterson, he should get atleast some of the coverage on him weakend. So i'm thinking this year will be a break out year for T-Will, or atleast start showing some chance of being the big time WR that we hoped for when we drafted him.

        I dont see him having a 1000 yrds but i can see him have 750 yards catching and 3 touchdowns not much. I just hope he doesnt drop as much.

          Actually bonzi kind of hit the nail on the head. But I also believe he is working very hard to improve in this day n age of having so many premadonna wide outs. Isn't kind of refreshing to know our young wide outs only real problem is holding on to the ball. And isn't also refreshing to hear him being accountable for it. Working hard to improve it, With the Chris Henry's And Charlie rogers and co this seems like a very correctable problem, Especially when this has been a take the money and run position for the last several years.

            Honestly I dont care what his production is in numbers as long as he shows marked improvement.

              It really depends on TJ and Childress. I think if TJ favours him and settles in quickly, 60-70 for 1000-1200 with 4 or so TD is a realistic expectation.

              However if the QB thing doesnt sort itself out he will struggle. I thought that he seemed to be working well with TJ from the limited snaps he got and that TJ made a genuine effort to get the ball to TWill. Just gotta snap it up.

              He is set to be our #1 and he has shown some flashes in the past, just needs to put it all together this year.


              Props to BK on the sig!

                  Make no mistake about it he will be a better football player than he was in the past. With that said it doesn't mean he's going to immediately become the player we thought he would when we drafted him but he will contribute. I think we need to learn how to use him better, all we do is send him deep on nearly every play. This year we need to run some screens and shorter passes to him and let him use his speed to run with the ball instead of without. In conclusion he will not be our best player but I think he will have a positive influence on this team.

                    I think 500-800 yards is more realistic boys. Add in that you just drafted Rice, who may be a better reciever than Wililamson already. Add in the others that you have, and a running game that should be money. Plus TJ is a big question mark wether he will be good, or not.

                      I'll agree. Somewhere in the vicinity of 55 catches 750 yds and 4-5 td sounds about right.

                        60 catches for 1500 yards???? No way. That would be 25 yards per catch. If he reaches 1000 yards that would be amazing in my mind. His eyes may be bad but seriously, some of the adjustments he made on the ball last year were horrible. I could make some of those plays with a patch over one eye. Troy, you are the number 7 overall pick and got a huge pay check you never should've...catch the damn ball.

                          I'd be happy enough if Williamson remained active for all 16 games.

                            That would be great, but it sounds a little optimistic.

                              I expect plenty more dropped passes and frustration on my part. On the bright side I don't expect coaches to make any more excuses for him, and his time in Minnesota will grow short. And to think he graced my fantasy football team for a time last year. Darn you Troy Williamson.
