Williamson

22 posts in this topic

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Former first-round draft pick Troy Williamson never really got along with coach Brad Childress in Minnesota.

His feelings haven't changed since leaving there, either.

Williamson, now in Jacksonville, said Wednesday he lost respect for his former coach last year and would like to "duke it out" with him when the Jaguars host the Vikings on Sunday.

"We can meet on the 50-yard line and we can go at it," Williamson said.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound receiver said he liked his chances against Childress, too, especially with a few inches and at least 10 pounds on the coach. Williamson even said he would fight with both hands tied behind his back.

Childress countered by saying, "He must not be aware there's a buffer zone between the opponents."

Childress initially said he wasn't "biting" on Williamson's comments, but when pressed about his height and weight on a conference call, he responded: "Do you need my reach? I'm not like a woman; I'll give you my weight. It's 190 pounds of twisted steel and rompin', stompin' dynamite. Is that enough humor for you?"

Perfect, coach.

Now back to the fight. Williamson didn't say whether he wanted a boxing match, a WWE-style showdown or maybe something edgier, like a mixed martial arts cage match.

Either way, Vikings defensive end Jared Allen knows who he would bet on if there was a River City Rumble.

"Coach Childress is a tough-minded guy," Allen said. "And he has a bad ... mustache."

Please do, then we can get a new coach for that pathetic guy

Childress could throw a punch, might be the first thing Williamson has caught in years.

I don't like either one of these guys, but how can the NFL allow a player to make such comments?

Jared Allen is right. The Mustache probably would take Willy Drop the Ball Wonkason out pretty fast.

Maybe he can hit Childress hard enough that he gets brain damage and they hire Bill Cowher as our new coach

TW still hasn't figured out that he's TW.

He should shut up. At least he got a chance to fail with the Vikes. Down there he's mostly inactive.

Is Williamson even active now? I know he wasn't for a while. The guy couldn't catch a cold, he has no business being an NFL reciever.

He won't be active for the Vikes game. He has 4 catches for 27 yards and a td so far this year. What a waste of a draft pick.

I am looking at that, and I am guessing you are a Packers fan and will say Erin Rodgers

BTW, the draft that year was horrible, 1-10:

Alex Smith

Ronnie Brown

Braylon Edwards

Cedric Benson

Cadillac Williams

PacMan Jones

Troy Williamson

Antrel Rolle

Carlos Rogers

Mike Williams

I think Edwards is the only one that has gone to the Pro Bowl, maybe I am wrong, but I think so, and this year he has dropped a ton of passes. Jones has the ability, but needs to keep his nose clean, and I kinda doubt that will ever happen.

Didn't the Lions draft a WR like 3 or 4 years in a row in the first round?

    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
