367 posts in this topic

Can't wait to draft Lattimore in the 1st next year

Heck yeah, in case one of the others gets hurt we will be ready to roll?

<Steve Smith chimes in, "Hey guys, remember years ago when I mentioned I was ready to take a backseat and not have the load of being the #1 on my shoulders anymore? You know when I acknowledged I can't keep this up and we need a plan?>

Hurney then goes, "I got diss, we sign Lattimore and then I'll draft another App St QB and turn him into WR...it will work this time".

We had a lengthy conversation and everything he said to me made perfect sense," said Williams, Carolina's first-round pick in 2006. "From the film room down to work ethic and everything of that nature. He really left me with some things that really touched me and stayed on my heart, as you can tell from this season."

"Williams wouldn't reveal the exact details of the talk, and Testaverde couldn't be reached on Wednesday. But quarterback Jake Delhomme believes Williams has benefited greatly from the advice of the 21-year veteran who was well known for being in top condition and well prepared for every game. Last year, Vinny talked to DeAngelo about that, about, 'Hey, when you practice, run. Finish runs,' " Delhomme said. "Because Vinny had all those years and knew how to prepare. He was a tireless worker. He prepared extremely hard. I thought it was great that Vinny did that, because obviously, he saw something in DeAngelo.

This year after every running play at practice, Williams runs all the way to the end zone, no matter where on the field the play started from. Williams acknowledged he worked harder in the offseason and is in better condition. He's stronger, too, which has made him harder to tackle.

Now try and read between the lines and tell me that Vinny didn't tell him to work harder and run harder. Stop while you are behind.

In fairness, that isnt Williams saying he wasn't giving max effort....just willing to take advice on how to get better and change his routine.

Coach/Player speak. Vinny might have taught him some things/took him under his wing, but I don't believe for a second D-Will wasn't giving it what he had. I've had people help me out on job,and it was helpful, but I was still giving 100%. I would have said similar things.

I said D-Will was a different runner in 08. Lot more power, little less burst. But he was still was better than Foster in 07, and he sure wasn't timid. And he didn't get his yards because Foster wore out the defense. That is the only time I've ever heard yards contributed to player like that before.

Timid RBs getting stopped behind the line don't generally average 5 yards.

he has averaged more negative yards per carry the last 2 seasons vs 2007.

Sure they do if they run for a 50 yard play around the end and then get stuffed for 3 plays behind the line and then average 3 yards per carry for the next 10 plays. Lets say the negative plays were for minus 3 yards a piece. So we have 14 plays for a total of 71 or a total of 5 yards per play.

As for the comparison to the past 2 years do you have stats to show that or did you make it up??

You have to do the math yourself. But there is a correction, for whatever reason his profile on SI doesn't have 2011. I just grabbed the last two years assuming it was 2011 and 2010 but that was comparing him to 2009, 2010.

2007 - lost 32 yards on 144 attempts

2010- lost 28 yards on 87 attempts

2009- lost 61 yards on 216 attempts

can't do last year unless you know another site that tracks it. can't believe SI doesn't have 2011

And yes, OL play and other things factor in to yards lost at time....

Anyone who remembers what was going on in 2007 knows that Williams had issues in 2006 and 2007 and Vinny set him straight. He came into camp after working harder than ever in the off-season with a new attitude and a new improved work ethic. I don't understand why the two of you can't ever admit you were wrong and just argue until the other person gives up. You win, honestly I know what happened and so do others here. I give up. Believe what you want...............

Oh yeah! That reminds me of another argument people used on Williams. Take away his big runs and he averages 3.something. Even then they wouldn't take away Foster big run of like 14 and his average was in the 2.something range. Funny poo.

I believe Vinny gave Williams good advice. He changed his work habits to get better. But that happens all the time....

Williams didn't claim he wasn't giving max effort prior to Vinny coming to down. Poor effort has never been a label for Williams....you don't set the NCAA yardage record being that type guy.

Cam IMO gave 100% last year. Tons of vets could tell him to approach things different from a preparation standpoint. Like a bigger focus on footwork. Him putting more focus on aspects of his game to get better per the advice of others doesn't mean the effort wasn't there before.

Williams said Vinny made him better. I agree.

But what are these well known Williams issues?

That doesn't tell you how many negative plays he had though. That tells you how many yards he lost as a function of total running plays right? I thought we were talking about how many times he was tackled behind the line. Theoretically he could have been tackled behind the line 20 times in 2007 for a total of 32 yards and could have been tackled behind the line for 20 times for a total of 61 yards. Do you have better numbers?

And you do know this is a bunny trail, right??

Vinny took him under his wing and helped him out(it is great to have a support system), but your implying that Williams wasn't giving 100% with the "new work ethic" push, and that he wasn't already better than Foster.
