Did they ever report how bad he was hurt on that catch. The broadcasters mentioned something about a possible concussion. He catches everything

He did get a concussion per Ian Furness. Still makes the team.

Sounds like he did sustain a concussion from what I've heard so far.

I didn't notice the helmet smacking the ground the first time. I was re watching ther irst drive and looked specifically for that. It was quite a thump on the turf. Hoping it isn't too serious

Would hate being in Pete's shoes this weekend. Such horrible timing and Harper didn't help himself tonight. I am thinking he makes the team given he looks like he has developed chemistry with Wilson. 58 yard bomb right?

9 days to get ready. I bet he'll be suited up next Sunday as the #5 WR.

Williams is a lock. No brainer for the final 53 at this point. Top 5 WRs are set IMO.

Harper did not help himself at all tonight. Dropped TD and third down conversion; both placed right on his hands. You have to feel for the guy.

INCORRECT.

It's a setup.

He was instructed to muff those catches so we could sneak him on to the PS.

He got right back up and look like he got his bell rang a little. Worst case he sits out next week, and is good solid depth when we need him. That and he was standing on the sidelines in the 1st quarter, so it couldn't be anything too major.

Carroll didn't sound all that concerned about Williams in his press conference and said that it was more a matter of the team being "overly cautious" than anything else. Williams should be okay.

Agreed. He was horrible. I was really pulling for him too. At best, PS player cuz I still think he has some promise. Just not game ready yet.

Williams is a lock. Even with Wilson's half assed throw.
Harper just imploded last night. Like the conspiracy theory there though!

I want to look at that play again, but its hard to criticize Wilson for throwing the ball short and still throwing the ball 60 yards. The worst I could say about Wilson is that he threw the ball late, not short.

I honestly need to watch it again, but first impression was it just wasn't on the mark. Somebody has to critique the lil fella just to keep his feet on the ground.

When Harper dropped the TD that hit him in the hands, this is exactly what I was thinking. I would love to see him stick on the practice squad. :snack:

I think we should all just give thanks that the biggest worry on our roster is filling out practice squad positions.

Wasn't too long ago that we were arguing over who the #2,3 receivers were, who'd start at outside LB, picking up starting O-Linemen after other team's cuts and whether Kelly Jennings could stop sucking long enough to be the #2 DB.

His half-assed 60 yard bomb? Geez, this fan base is seriously getting spoiled.

I recorded the first part of the game and reviewed the bomb. A few conclusions (keep in mind I'm an expert at this sort of thing):

1. The ball traveled 61 yards in the air
2. Williams did a really good job of getting behind coverage
3. Williams timed when to go up to get the ball perfectly
3. We should cut Wilson because he did, in fact, throw the ball a little late

I'm not sure if the ball was deliberately underthrown, as Wilson may have been compensating for some of his overthrows, but the moral of the story is having a WR who is 6'5" with long arms and good strength should take some of the "thinking" out of it. Just throw the rock and let the big boy go get it!

W-w-waiiiittt, Matt. That was way to simple of a post. Sure, its accurate, but you look foolish unless you insert weighted DIVA rankings (Aretha Franklin's always #1) in the post.

C'mon, this is a fansite. Be better.

It was definitely not a good throw. 1/2 the time that gets picked.

After two picks last week think Russell hesitated just slightly, he was looking deep for awhile as if pondering the throw.

Percy Harvin was no longer a bad move because he is injury prone - Now it is a bad move because our receiving core is one of our best position groups without him. Waaaaaaay to much cap space if our #4 & #5 receivers play like this during the regular season.

Wilson obviously sucks. If he was any good he would have covered that 80 yards and scored on one or two plays, not three. What a loser. :stirthepot:

And this is the reason Rice might be expendable, but Williams didn't help himself last night by getting injured again.

What to me is interesting is this notion about underthrown and late. I actually think it was overthrown. You don't throw it much longer than 60 yards (I surely don't :D) but if you look at the flight of the ball it went so high up that it trailed off and arrived later. If that thing is thrown at a slightly lower angle it gets there right on time and doesn't allow the defender to adjust. It is not a great throw. This doesn't mean that RW isn't a good / great qb and I don't understand why a play can't be criticized without everyone jumping on a "well you are saying RW sucks you are an idiot".... it was not a great throw despite how far it went. On the other hand - not to concerned about 61 yard interceptions on jump balls and when it works well then the outcome is pretty freaking great.

Well seeing that timing and release of down field passes like that take a bit of chemistry I am not worried, thats the type of pass you get better at with practice and being able to gauge your recievers speed. Big tall guys look like they are moving slower then they are also.
