    Weems was a good ST guy but had WAY too many penalties. Plus he's not much of a WR. Too much money for what he brings.

    It was probably a squirt gun. Better yet a cap gun!

    By the time the 2014 team begins the regular season, the Jerry Angelo/Lovie Smith team will be 99% gone. It will be Phil Emery's 3rd season. Time to see the if the Emery era teams can supplant Green Bay as the big dog in the division.

    He didn't play slotback up here, so I'd think it less likely he would play it in the NFL. Slotback is usually reserved for the boys who can take a pounding and come up with the ball. More likely on some plays one of the big bodies moves over to play slot while Williams goes outside. Don't need height as a WR if you're really fast. The big boy WR trend exists on both sides of the border, yet Williams still caught his share.

    About Weems, there's always room on any team for good role players, but it you don't adjust or accept the role and the pay that comes with it, well . . . I'm amazed at how many players think they should be paid millions more for what they bring. A few months working in a mill for a couple of bucks above minimum might give them some perspective.

    I think he can. It's pretty common in the NFL for your slot guy to be a small, fast quick dude. But hey, from what you say & the highlights I've watched he plays on the outside & does it well. Another one of those versatile guys Emery keeps taliking about.

    Let's hope he can make the adjustment if he's used that way. For two leagues that share common roots, it's interesting to see all of the subtle differences. Unfortunately not every player can bridge those differences.

    Hey Bill, Its nice to see another Canuck on the boards that is a Bears fan..(u are in Canada?) and I am guessing you are in the Hamilton area? anyways I hope to watch more CFL this year as it seems a trend that the players are making more of a transition to the NFL

    Glad he's gone, save the $, bring in someone better in the draft. Need to see what DeCamillis can do on ST coaching wise this coming season.

    Hey Bill, what can we expect from Williams as a returner? Is he as electric as he looks in highlights?

    I'm beginning to think that Emery's "open arms" are the rough equivalent of a "Sicilian kiss". :14_6_20[1]:
