Cary Williams held one of my all-time favorite introductory press conferences in March when he simultaneously ripped Nnamdi Asomugha and Howard Eskin. A twofer!
His exchange with Eskin from March:
The fans… are very vocal… now that you’ve connected yourself to Nnamdi… you know at the end what happened…
“I don’t think I connected myself at all. I just said it was a guy that I looked at in his particular successful time. I didn’t say he was one of the high guys that I looked at this year.”
“He was just a guy that I happened to like. So if you take me as a joke, then you take me as a joke, I don’t care. I’m here to win games and help my team win games as best as I can, and I’m going to go out there an put on a performance each and every week.”
But now? He hasn’t showed up to OTAs (yes, the optional ones). Tim McManus of the wonderful Eagles 24/7 blog at Philly Mag:
Meanwhile, Cary Williams was once again a no-show. The corner missed about a month of work as he took care of some personal business, which included getting married, having dental work done and tending to a house-build. The latest reason? His daughter’s recital.
Yeah, those are bogus reasons.
LeSean McCoy was also a no-show. No reason was given (anyone check the NJ Turnpike?).
people are definitely overreacting to his absence
He didnt show up to optional workouts – who cares?
Maybe he’s at the Crossing Broad golf outing? Oh wait….
Guess you guys are okay with mediocrity?? New team, new coaches, new defense, you think its okay for him to be absent? Shouldn’t he be learning as much as he can? Taking all the reps he can? Do you want to see Curtis Marsh starting? No. He needs to be out there every chance he gets or this team is going to be just as bad as last year. This isn’t a Champ Bailey in his prime, a Revis, an Asante, its CARY FUCKING WILLIAMS. He needs to be on the field
How about you wait to b*tch and moan until after you see his performance on the field.
Mmmmmk?? I can already tell you’re a clown. I’ll bitch and moan all I want. He makes millions and the franchise brought him in and paid good money for him, he should be at all the practices with his new teammates learning his new system. No excuse. I don’t care how well he plays, still needs to be there.
Clown comment gets a clown response.
By all means please go ahead and judge him based on a few offseason decisions, but I’ll reserve my judgement until after we’re 2-3 games into the season.
I bet you’re one of those Phils fans that started watching the team in 2007 and jumps all over them after each April start as well, right?
Hey jackoff all I said is he should be at every practice. I didn’t say he was going to be shitty, I didn’t say he is going to be an all-pro. All I said is he should be at practice. And its funny I can’t judge him on a few offseason practices but you could judge him after 2-3 games??? He could be trash the first 3 games but lights out the next 13 you dumbass hypocrite.
Phils fan all my life you fucking idiot. Last time I checked they don’t squeeze 162 games into April so no I don’t care how they start,
And FUCK the illini you worthless piece of shit
Being angry or caring about this at all is typical Philly fan bullshit. They don’t have to be there, they’re not scheduled practices. I don’t go to optional exam reviews for my classes because they’re not mandatory. It’s not a class. This makes me neither a bad student nor someone who isn’t committed to having good grades. It just means if I don’t have to be there, I’d rather do other things. I don’t miss mandatory classes, but if it’s optional, I probably won’t bother. I don’t blame him for not going and I’d NEVER hold skipping an optional OTA against a player.
Nobody cares if you go to class or not, don’t compare yourself to Cary Williams skipping a practice (after missing a month for other shit)
I just did. Maybe calm down?
@Leeroy – u mad brah?
yeah brah, I’m heated…….get over yourself you loser
Just a fan sharing his opinion on the team he loves…..I’m tired of seeing a losing product every Sunday. I’m tired of wasting my money going to these games to see bums like Kurt Coleman and Nnamdi and Nate Allen and the rest of the defense get burned every play, Just want to see improvement and the only way that will happen is with practice and team chemistry and that’s not happening at anyone’s daughters recital…..obviously you can’t buy a good defense….see Nnamdi, Jevon Kearse, DRC, Asante….now you have this knucklehead skipping shit. Yes its voluntary but everything is new, don’t you idiots get that? It’s not a veteran player with the same d coordinator and same guys playing next to him….he has to learn how they play, how they communicate, etc…
You might want to go drink a beer or smoke a J or go get a beej or something, you need to relax.
No one is making you spend your money on the team. That’s not a valid criticism. Only the guy signing his checks should care how he allocates his time. If Lurie, Roseman, or Kelly really cared about the OTAs he’s missing, they’d change them to MTAs. Chris’ comment (from above) is dead on.
I never said anyone was ‘making’ me spend my $. So i should be a half assed fan? Not care what product they put on the field? Not care that a guy they paid starter money is at a dance recital instead of working with his teammates? If I was his teammate I’d be kinda pissed he wasnt out there working with me and it wasn’t just one practice, its been several
No one’s forcing you to waste your money on that shitbag organization. Keep it in your wallet and just don’t buy their jerseys or go to their games or invest yourself whatsoever in them until they give you a reason to. It’s simple.
We talkin bout practice?
Leeroy makes some very good insightful points. He is just sounds like a douche in his delivery… No offense Leeroy. This dude missing optional practices with a new team, coach, system and teammates immediately raises concern. Millions paid or not, its just a dick move that shows he really doesn’t give a shit about gelling with the TEAM.
Lazy black man. Nothing new here
He can miss all the OTA’s he wants. He BETTER show up in week 1 then!!! Illini, since he is choosing to skip OTA’s he loses the reservment of judgement for a few weeks. He blows the 1st two weeks and this fan base will tear him up. He plays lights out and we forget he skipped OTA’s. I don’t care if they show up or not, but if they blow we will all point this out as a reason why they suck.
Anyone who disses Eskin has my admiration for life. It’s sad but because Howard was a kiss ass for the Eagles organization they force the players to deal with him.
it’s refreshing to see a player stand up for himself against this sometimes extremely critical media that over analyzes everything
leeroy = kyle scott?
Yeah, the OTAs aren’t really optional. That’s kind of the worst kept secret in sports, right behind the officiating in boxing and the NBA being less than successful in maintaining unswerving neutrality.
The OTAs are mandatory, except that teams can’t issue fines or openly punish a player for missing them. But if you miss them, you’re breaking your (actual, real, though unwritten) obligations to the team and you’re sending a message. What that message is depends on the player. For Victor Cruz, it’s pretty obvious what he’s saying to the Giants by cutting OTAs, and that’s fine. For LeSean, what he’s saying to the Birds is “I had my dawgs throw some ho out the side of the highway and some shit happened with the bitch that had my kid so I’m busy and shit” and I guess that’s fine too.
But Cary Williams? Motherfucker needs to be out there, and he’d be cut this week if, as mentioned above, teams weren’t forbidden from giving the impression that OTA weren’t *cough*cough*notreally*cough optional.
I’m a fucking stressed out moron. Sorry, waiting for a man to come suck me so I can get my rocks off.
