    Column: Days numbered unless Williams makes drastic changes

    Wednesday, September 06, 2006By Tom Kowalski

    ALLEN PARK -- Mike Williams' days are numbered -- 237 to be exact.

    As the situation stands right now, the Detroit Lions wide receiver will probably be cut on June 1 of next year in a salary cap move. There are two reasons why Williams wasn't recently tossed out the door like his buddy Charles Rogers: One, Williams was too expensive to cut and, two, head coach Rod Marinelli hasn't given up on him yet.

    Time is running out on Williams to make a positive impression on Marinelli and the coaching staff. This isn't a situation where Williams can spin his wheels during the regular season and then hope to rehabilitate his image with hard work and intensity during next year's off-season workouts.

    Wow, if Mike Williams is cut next year that will be 3 of the last 4 top 10 picks they've cut. That is INEXCUSABLE!

    I understand that not all 1st rounders pan out. BUT THREE OF FOUR TOP TEN PICKS?!?!?! :mad2:

    Now Millen will have to draft 2 more WR's with his first pick to replace them.

    I think things are going to get ugly this season. If the Lions start out poorly, which lets face it, is likely, the fans might actually storm the field.

    Jones was a late 1st rounder, I was only talking about top 10 picks.

    I didn't include Sims in that because its too soon to know what'll happen with him. My guess is career ending injury.
