This is really bad news...there is no way this guy can drop 50 lbs in 2 months.
It is a shame...to bad he didn't get his lazy butt into shape over the winter.
I really doubt he makes the team
I read an article where they had interviewed Williams or Dockery and Williams was mentioned but the story was about how he has been working out with Dockery and he's healthy. How he had played his rookie yr and got hurt at the end of it, tried to come back the next yr and could not then was let go and sat out all last yr. He's supposedly now back to his playing weight while in Buffalo and would like to lose 50 more lbs.

Then over the weekend I heard or read how he is like 410lbs and over weight. What gives?

When thinking about it JC and only having 1 3/4 yrs playing is kinda short. However I thought he had more then that. I keep hearing how JC has not had 2 yrs in the same system and this would be his first time. For whatever reason I thought he had 2 or atleast 1 3/4 yrs under AS. Did he not play 3/4 of a yr and get hurt. Then the next yr come back and play a full yr under AS? This will be his 2nd yr under Zorn. At some point I have to feel like Zorn does....JC is a proffessional, I'm sure his system changed from high school to college, he changed systems often in college, if anything all the changing has tought him to learn the plays faster and learn how to over come the fact of having to learn every yr.

Yes it would be nice to see JC play the same offense 3+ yrs to see what he can offer like Eli Manning. But you have to play with the hand your dealt. If nothing else it will make him a good Journey man. I like JC, I'm just concerned about his ability to read defenses and his 2min drill. Coach Zorn can find a way to play to the strenghts of JC. If all he's really good at is intermediate throws then give him intermediate throws mostly. Have him throwing short passes all summer to get him to learn how to finess the ball to the WR/TE.

Oh well my soap box.

As per Vinny's presser the other day yes he's over 400 folks for the 100th time. He's going to be working on conditioning for the next month to get him down.
The added weight causes more injuries as well. This guy has gained weight at a crazy rate since college. I think he played at 375 in college too and that is why that size is the goal.

He was a beast in Texas but I seriously doubt this guy will bring anything to the table. Jansen sucks but at least he can move. I cannot visualize how large 400+ will look on the football field, but it ain't gonna be pretty.

Oline to me is still a huge concern with our center and RT. Also I am not sold that Thomas is going to come back and perform at preinjury level, especially at his current age. Perhaps Rinehart(sp) can step up, but I would be pretty upset if I were Buges.

Thanks. I think this is where I deduced he was 375

The Colony and UT-ex Mike Williams hoping to come back to NFL | NFL News | Sports News | News for Dallas, Texas | Dallas Morning News

Quote:
Back in the day, Williams had a stellar all-state football career as a defensive tackle at The Colony and a terrific time taking out would-be tacklers and sackers as an offensive tackle at Texas. At 6-6 and 375 pounds, Mike Williams did not allow a sack in his final two seasons as a Longhorn.

At times, Williams, who says he is at his previous playing weight but might still like to shed 20 pounds, and the relatively svelte 6-6, 345-pound Dockery work out together in the gym. But when Dockery heads off to the Redskins training facility, Williams works alone. He says he hasn't missed a day.

Re: Skins Sign O-Lineman Mike Williams

I thought I heard this the guy is so out of shape he couldnt participate in workouts. I think I read he's still well over 400lb.

One thing I would be curious about is the "pecking order" of the coaching staff. We know Buges is well respected, but he was from Gibbs, and not JZ. I believe we know that Buges is still in Rabach's corner, so maybe he is not as upset as us fans are.

Well, Buges did get Dockery back and it's up to him to get the younger guys coached up and ready to contribute. The cupboard is not completely bare like some people like to think.

If Buges is upset it should be with the fact this was a pretty weak OL class.

From what I understand Buges does have some input. Correct me if I'm wrong but from what I know if Buges really thinks a guy is special then we grab him. Zorn has a lot of respect for Buges and I'm sure gives him autonomy with his O linemen for the most part. If Buges honestly felt that there was someone in the draft (outside of the first since Orakpo was too high on our board) that was an upgrade to what we have, he would be a Redskin. Maybe just maybe our own guys are progressing? I guess we will wait and see

I'm sure he did have input in grading the OL prospects. Vinny said in the 3rd they didn't have anyone graded as a starter on the OL so they went to other positions.

Re: Skins Sign O-Lineman Mike Williams

Apparently no other team felt there was any OL talent available in teh 3rd either. After the Redskins selected Barnes no other OL was selected in the 3rd and only 5 were selected in the 4th so the redskins aren't the only team who felt there wasn't much OL talent in the middle rounds.

Good point.

Again, a weak OL class.

Re: Skins Sign O-Lineman Mike Williams

Well, it is no end of amusement for me to observe.....fans bouncing off the walls that the Skins did not take an O-lineman....ESPECIALLY when it is an area of NEEEEEED.
??? Did fan think management was not aware of this? Did fan think perhaps he was just a little more shrewd than management? Did fan think all the sports training he had recieved working as a data analyst, beer server, manager, etc. exceeded managements experience and training? What did fan think?
Does management always make the right move.......no.

Do they know we need a O-tackle? I think they are.....aware.
maybe, Maybe, they could not find anyone worth the pick?
........relax

Well Put!! I have a feeling that people will still bring the same arguement up again though. Its easier to bash than to rationalize

Outstanding post!

I'll bet that none of us takes kindly to less-informed outsiders telling us how to do our jobs, yet that is precisely what many of us (me included) do every day on the Warpath.
