About a month ago I noticed this article and didn't think much of it since it seemed to be a no brainer and there's not much to the article.

At the same time apparently (I say apparently because the defense seemingly falls behind every game and looked like shit vs the Lions), Williams has been upping his game according to this article.

Quote:
In the last month, Williams has stated his case -- not verbally, but with his play. He has two interceptions in the last four games and during that stretch, he has not allowed a touchdown and his tackling has been superb. According to ProFootballFocus.com, Williams has allowed just 8 total yards after the catch on six opponent receptions against him over the last three games. He allowed three completions in last Sunday's 22-21 win over the Atlanta Falcons, but none went for longer than 8 yards.


The date of the article puts it before the Cowboys game and his play there. So the question is, what happens with Tramon? On one hand, it's nice to see more of the old Tramon who's willing to tackle and makes plays on the ball. On other hand, the fact an article saying he'll be forced to take a paycut or get released appears and his improved play occurred at the same time is distressing and annoying in that he seems like he's another "got paid, stopped hustling" story.

Well in his case it was got paid, hurt his shoulder. The main reason he's improved this year from the last couple of years is they took a lot of responsibility away. Capers had him shadowing #1 WRs the last 2 years like in 2010 even when it was obvious he was hurting and couldn't do it anymore. Now they are just letting him play football and play the guy across from him and it's really helped him out.

"
Two weeks ago, defensive coordinator Dom Capers looked at the opponents the Packers were to face in the final four weeks and made the assessment that he needed to get Williams back to his natural position of left cornerback.

Williams had helped fill the void at slot corner when Casey Hayward couldn't man his position because of a chronic hamstring problem and rookie Micah Hyde was still learning what it's like to be a traffic cop at the intersection of free release and two-way go.

But when the Packers went to the Super Bowl after the 2010 season, the last time Williams was healthy and playing at a level he's showing glimpses of again, he was the left outside cornerback. Charles Woodson was the slot corner and Sam Shields, a rookie then, was the right outside cornerback.

The last two weeks, Capers has returned to having Williams and Shields on the outside and is using a combination of Hyde and Jarrett Bush to cover slot receivers and tight ends. The result has been more passes broken up, more flexibility in handling the opponents' top receiver and most importantly, three clutch interceptions."

This article just showed up in news feed, didn't see any reason to start a new thread.

Plus I feel like the DBs are starting to play with a little heart.

Earlier in the free fall, it seemed they just weren't even trying out there.

Zero2Cool (12h) : You are wise enough to know the difference. Right?
