  • He's Jamal Williams....not Vince Wilfork (and more)

    Here's a little different take from the rest of today's threads......

    I'm very surprised at the excitement that the signing of the "Wall" has generated on this forum. Denver is not getting an elite NT in the prime of his career. I'm not saying that Jamal is washed up, but his last good season was in 2007- and even then, he was beginning to slow down. 2008 was plagued by injuries and we all know what happened in 2009.

    If the Broncos want to compete for the division title in the near future, they will need to get younger, not older. Too much money and too many roster spots are being spent on Free Agents - both last year and this off-season.

    Much of that is due to poor drafts over the last several years. But, signing a12 year veteran lineman is not going overcome that problem. So, some of you need to stop acting like it is.

    Jealous much?? lol. This is somewhat true, but the guy can still play and was an upgrade over what we had. Hes going to be put in a rotation where he can be used very effictivly making him a very good pick up for this team.

      His second best year of his career was 2008 and he was hurt last year. I don't understand the skeptics.

          1. Denial and Isolation
          2. Anger
          3. Bargaining
          4. Depression
          5. Acceptance

          Grieving and its stresses pass more quickly, with good self-care habits. It helps to have a close circle of family or friends. It also helps to eat a balanced diet, drink enough non-alcoholic fluids, get exercise and rest.

          Most people are unprepared for grief, since so often, tragedy strikes suddenly, without warning. If good self-care habits are always practiced, it helps the person to deal with the pain and shock of loss until acceptance is reached.

              The sad thing about this post is that the chargers' players were young, now getting older, and they still haven't won the big one! Just face it bolt fans, your chances of winning the superbowl have been pushed back five more years......at least. I don't understand how your team had all that talent on the roster but couldn't find any use for it, SAD!

                    I'm happy we got him. Is he Wilfork? No, is he the greatest NT in the game? No, but he's a mountain of a man that'll help against the run game. We understand that we may not be getting the Drew Brees of NT, but he's a huge dude and will help out our defensive situation. In FA you take what you can get, and I am very happy that we signed him, and from Merriman's Twitter account it sure doesn't sound like Jamal is washed up or even close, dude is mad that he's here in Denver.

                      You can't always build through the draft. You need veteran leadership as well. I still expect Denver to target an early DT/NT. What better way to develop young talent than have someone very capable (Jamal Williams) show him the ropes. Williams will rotate with Justin Bannan. Remember when Denver signed Neil Smith before the 1997 season? Do you think Denver would have been better off with someone younger? The two Lombardi trophies sitting at Dove Valley say no.

                          Yet when I go to the Dolts board it starts out a few days ago that they all want to resign him, how much he means to the run defense, so on and so forth.


                          http://forums.chargers.com/showthread.php?t=78672

                          Now that he has not only left but has gone to play for the enemy, Dolt fans are trying to do a 180 and say he is washed up, injury prone and so on and so forth. We are happy to have him play NT for our revamped defense. The reason Merriman is so pissed about it is because in what basicly is a contract year for him the chargers have let the one player on their defense that can help merriman have a huge year kicked to the curb.

                            Cant say he was, but I wasnt expecting SD to cut him either, plus the fact that your boys wanted to resign him. I honestly figured he would be back in SD. It was quite the surprise to see the reports of him being in Denver.

                            That being said, whether he was on my radar or not has nothing to do with the fact that you basically posted a jilted-exgirlfriend Tweet here over losing him. Your post definitely looks like a big ol bunch of sour grapes.

                            Im sure he isnt going to be the long term solution, but if we can squeeze 2 to 3 years about of him while developing young guys like Chris Baker or whoever we draft, then Im all for it.

                            From what I know, he is a quality teammate and leader and one heck of a hard worker. He certainly is a run stuffing beast (we know that all too well) and, even with his recent injuries, he is a big upgrade of Ronnie Fields.

                            Why is it wrong for us to be excited over his signing?

                            Did you live with Shanny's half ass defenses for all the years we did? Probably not. Trust me, it is a happy day in Broncoland when you get J Wall instead of some asshat like Sam Adams.

                            So, if you want to boo-hoo, it is quite the sobfest over on Shawne's Twitter. And let us enjoy what we got.

                              hmm sounds like a jealous chargers fan who just lost one of the biggest pieces of there team. oh and 2008 wasnt plagued with injuries he had 1 tricep injury halfway threw the raider game 1 week 1 of the year. oh and the team gettin younger lets see 28 year old NT in fields who now can learn from a probowler, 21 year old DE/NT in baker, 25 year old DE in mcbean, the youngest and best tackle tandem in the league (the ryan boys), promising running back and good looking safety in darel mcbath. too bad the chargers are dumping all there talent.
