MIKE WILLIAMS IS READY FOR THE RAIDERS

Posted by HG on May 25, 2007

mike-williams.jpgMike Williams is known more for his attempt at entering the NFL as a sophomore than for his actual NFL career. In two long seasons, Williams has amassed 37 catches for 449 yards, and two touchdowns. Not quite the numbers you would expect from a 10th overall draft pick.

There are a few factors that should be considered when talking about Mike’s slow start. Detroit drafted Williams in 2005 after having drafted receivers in the first round the two years prior, the team offense underwent a major makeover when Mike Martz joined the coaching staff in 2006, and he was playing for the Lions.

Williams was considered one of college football’s most dominate receivers when he was at USC. The naysayers would claim that he was the benefactor of playing with an all-star team, but I’d say he was a beast. His size and strength had NFL scouts drooling even if they questioned his speed. Once he made it to the league, Mike says there were other concerns about him.

“For some reason, I was labeled fat, lazy … a pot smoker. And that was the farthest thing from it. I really feel like, as far as the weight part of it, I was put in a position that since they didn’t have a plan for me, they could say, Well, because he doesn’t weigh 220, he’s not in shape to play … ‘ “

I won’t say that he’s in the best situation now, a sort of make or break season with a rookie quarterback and suspect offensive line, but he has to be feeling better than he did in Detroit. He gets to play for a guy he’s familiar with in Raiders head coach and former SC assistant Lane Kiffin, and he has the chance to prove that he wants to and can make it in the NFL. He should be comfortable and motivated which provides a perfect storm for rejuvenation.

Kiffin gives WR a do over. Thank you Sacramento Bee

MR. MAUIA TEAR DOWN THAT WALL

Posted by HG on May 2, 2007

 This is a hilarious clip of the Miami Dolphins 6th round draft pick Reagan Mauia. The 6 foot 272 pound fullback out of Hawaii was named after Ronald Reagan and is apparently a huge fan of the X-Men.

Here’s the X-Men clip that started the Juggernaut craze… Don’t blame me for the incredibly shitty quality of this video that was filmed in the movie theater.

Too bad Mauia will never get to play in the NFL since he used the word “bitch”.
