Fast Lane talking about this being the start of a lifetime ban for Williams. My first reaction was that he would be back after the year. But, I could see how that would happen. Goodell dangles the possibility of returning to the NFL in front of him in exchange for information. Then, when he's of no use, he gets banned. I could see it playing out like that I guess. NFL doesn't need Williams, but they do need an end to bad PR on this topic. A lifetime ban goes a long way toward preventing it from happening in the future.
You mentioned Fast Lane, so I turned that on just in time to hear Chris Duncan ask Skip Schumaker (of all people) if he were running the Rams, would he trade for Tebow?
As I rolled my eyes, Skip actually had a pretty decent answer, basically saying that Tebow brings a circus with him and that the first incomplete pass Bradford throws, people would start yelling for Tebow.
Yeah, if that's what comes with it, I don't want him. I'm with you guys about Bradford. How many times did a WR drop ball perfectly thrown on their hands? Everybody deals with drops, but he seemed to deal with an abnormally high amount of them while not having a legit playmaker to work with. And, that doesn't even get to the OLine issues. It's hard to say he had an up year, but how many people would be worried about him having a down year had there not been so many drops?
There were just so many things that went wrong for him that he couldn't control. He does need to have a solid year this year though IMO.
