Tramon Williams not at practice on Thurs.

Posted by Mike Spofford on January 3, 2013 – 12:07 pm

Packers CB Tramon Williams was not at practice on Thursday in the portion of the workout open to reporters. Williams has not been on the injury report this week. Mike McCarthy will provide an update following practice.

The only other players on the 53-man roster who were not at practice were WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle) and DE Jerel Worthy (knee). McCarthy said on Wednesday that Worthy’s knee injury is season-ending.

    I think it’s time for Williams to go. Haven’t ever liked him. Misses more plays than he’ll ever make. Not needed. Maybe we can trade or cut him in off season.
    The only thing he provides is some depth.

    What are you talking about? He is our #1 corner. He doesn’t get thrown at often enough to miss that many plays. Yet another fan who wants to throw everything away when someone make one mistake…

    no way we release williams, he has had big games for us in the past shutting down some of the top receivers in the league. He is not the best tackler , but then again, if the linebackers did there job he wouldnt have to be
    we will crush the vikes this week 31 to 13

    Yeah Tramon has had a great season, most of the league would kill to have him as their starting corner. He had one bad game, it happens. He’ll bounce back and be a major part of any superbowl run in the future.

    The whole D better kick it up a notch in tackling, rushing the Q and coverage deep or it will be another long game to watch. It appears Williams has hot and cold games like the rest of the secondary.

    Williams is a fantastic Cornerback. Who maybe one of the most crucial plays in the 2010/2011 Superbowl, final play of the game. Then there were those two devastating interceptions in the playoffs vs the Falcons, Remember the INT TD just before half. Or what about the huge interception on the Eagles to end the game and seal the win.
    Williams was as crucial to the Super bowl appearance and win as Rodgers or Mathews, and he is a quiet family man.

    Thank you Ron, I now like Tramon even more after writing that :)

    The lack of any perspective or sanity from a hard core minority of so-called Packer fans never ceases to amaze me. So Tramon Williams made a couple of bad plays last week and now he” misses more plays than he’ll ever make” and the team should release him?! That may not be the dumbest remark I’ve ever seen on this site, but it is definitely in contention.

    WHAT!? Williams is a beast! Especially as an undrafted free agent that worked his way up from the practice squad.

    Don’t be hasty, Ron. Be patient, he may have had a bad day, why even I do that on occasion.

    All I see in replay of running plays from opposition is Williams being bounced around like a rag doll. Hes just not built as an aggressive tackler..Cover guy or tackler there is a trade off. House mey do a better job in that position to stop the run

    One bad game for Williams! We need him! Still a fan! He wasn’t the only one missing tackles.

    JP, what makes you think dujuan harris isnt that guy? seriously, the only way most of us would be satisfied is if we picked a running back in the first round (which would probably be a bust). the guy is legit, what else does he need to do to prove it?

  15. By john on Jan 3, 2013 | Reply

    The team needs an improved offensive line more than anything else…plenty of running backs can get thru a hole…if it exists.

    Ya I really think Harris is the real deal. Love his speed and the way he hits the holes and FALLS FORWARD!

    i like tramon he is a cool dude and he is good db i agree quaterbacks dont throw his way half of the time we have good stable corners for now but the main concern is O LINE…

  18. By Zinger on Jan 3, 2013 | Reply

    ESPN reporter said all the Packers need is a left tackle to block so Rodgers has time to do things he would like to do. So if you think about replacing anyone, how about Newhouse? … and get more OL backups. Williams is good!

  23. By donfrommilwaukee on Jan 3, 2013 | Reply

    I don’t think they should cut Tramon, but he has definitely lost his zest for contact. His level of play has definitely dropped off since he got hurt in the 2011 season-opener. Understandable since he’s not the biggest, most rugged guy, but he can’t be openly avoiding plays. Play House or Hayward opposite Shields and let Tramon return kicks and punts with Ross. That way you spare Cobb completely from all the additional pounding.

    He cost GB the Vikings game. He should be fined but not released.

    One word for the defense: T-A-C-K-L-I-N-G!!!!!! So many broken tackles Sunday against the Queens. I understand that AP is a beast and tough to bring down, but DAMN, wrap the ball carrier up!!!!

    Ron, What you smoking. Tramon is best & most consistent corner on this team. Most Packer games you don’t hear his name much is because he is always shutting down opponent main WR.

    How can you not ever like Tramon Williams?,Sven makes some valid points,Me personally i think hes the best corner we have,I liked him since day one,He’s been making plays that we need ever since he earned his spot on the team,He doesnt get thrown at much,All corners have bad games just like everyone else,Thompson knows what he has in williams hes not going anywhere,He belongs in Green Bay wearing the Green and Gold

    I agree the offensive line stinks; 51 sacks allowed, constant pressure in the pocket, no time for receivers to properly run their routes. Need to find a top left tackle in free agency ( Jake Long is reportedly available ). I would rather see Jennings and Finley move on and spend money on the O-Line next season.

    When the best quarterback in the league has no time to throw it doesn’t matter how many weapons you have. Put Brady or Manning behind this line their numbers wouldn’t compare with Rodgers.

  31. By Sven on Jan 3, 2013 | Reply

    The Packers are a well built team, even the O-line. Watch how Rodgers plays, he rarely wants to take the check down, he moves all over the place, and he makes plays go on forever, sacks are going to happen, especially considering we have two of our last three first round picks on IR who should take back at least one of the Tackle positions back. We will have highly quality line and depth. Barclay is a rookie UDFA who not only made the roster, but has started two games and the team has been able continue in no huddle, with success.

    I really like this team, these players and coaches. Go Pack Go!

    After watching tramon last game I thought that it was time to bench him. And abra kadabra I look on this article and it looks like that happened finally. Loved you in 2010 tramon but we are not gonna win a superbowl with you starting anymore.

  33. By jim Leahy on Jan 4, 2013 | Reply

    Ok people tramon is not a beast, he shouldnt be released but he has not had ONE BAD GAME hes had to bad seasons of terrible tackling and not very good numbers against him. Calvin johnson murdered him, andre johnson was killing him. And he completely let AP go by him(which is prob why he lost his job). You guys still have your superbowl goggles on. But I want another one so I say bench him, we have alot of guys in the depth chart.

    Tramon Williams had a bad game, at a bad time. Plus he didn’t want to tackle AP,possibly the greatest running ever.I know a lot of DBs AP has made look invisible.

    let’s be honest TW is ok but nothing special. His headline article, (we’ll be ready next week} !!! He should have been ready last week and we could have skipped this week. That game costing penalty, NO EXCUESS. Need to emprove Capers defense. Seems like the division teams are on to him.

    Tramon might of had some big time plays in the past,but you can’ t MAKE STUPIDITY PLAYS AS A PROFESSIONAL like he did last week! Going right for the receivers HELMET AND FACE MASK IS UNCALLED FOR! And YES! THAT DID COST THE PACKERS THE GAME!!!!!!!

    The first thing that needs to happen, and I’m sure we can all agree on, is that Dom Capers needs to go down the road. We have had more than enough defensive players drafted high to develop in the past three years but he has failed miserably to develop not to mention that he is getting schooled just about every week schematically by offensive coordinators. He is the reason the Packers have not been the powerhouse that they should be with all the talent and young guys we have.

    WOW!!! the nerve of some of you unhappy, unfaithful, Packer fans just amazes me!!! McCarthy is a great coach!!! he is one of the best to ever coach in Green Bay!!! and tramon is an exceptional corner!!! And capers is a great dwef. cor. but he needs to change it up a bit!! Keeping players healthy has been our biggest problem…but new guys keep coming in and stepping up, it just takes time for that chemistry to gel!!!and its hard when different guys are always in and out!! but all teams can be improved!!the core guys we have have continually led us to playoffs and even won us a superbowl!!! so i say we keep going how we are!! ted and mike make great drafts!! keep it up!!!#PACKERSFORLIFE!!!!!

    We have got to get more pressure on the quarterback. Ponder made some key throws last game because he had all day to throw. Our D has been susceptible to big plays all season. I’ve never seen guys so wide open before. One things for sure, it’s going to take D to when the Super Bowl because if we make it there, we’re very likely going to be facing Brady or Manning and we know what they can do to a defense.

    Smeraz is right, Tramon is a great player but he has been lacking in play-making ability this year. Hayward and Shields have proved more effective in my opinion this season. With Woodson coming back at SS (or really anywhere in the backfield) I’m not sure they should rely on Williams as much.

    The D-second hasn’t been solid since Nick Collins got hurt and left the team. He and Woodson made up for the other player’s missed tackles, coverage and safety blitzes. You can talk about Williams all day, Collins was the glue.

    Don’t throw Trombone under the train, gang. He’s got the right “razzamatazz” to slide the Pack into the big New Orleans’ game.

  51. By Ev Meade on Jan 4, 2013 | Reply

    Tramon Williams is a shutdown corner, who plays more man coverage than anyone else on the squad, freeing up bodies for other options in the scheme. An Northerner should look at some stats — Nick Collins was a great player and his absence was felt last year, but the defense has improved in every category, and our young secondary is the envy of the league.

    you packer faithful kill me. Steve Young said it right. When you have the BEST qb in the league, if you dont win some superbowls, it falls on “great Coach McCarthy” and TT. there are no excuses for comimg out flat everygame. For throwing red flag challenges when your not supposed to. We are the Packers. We deserve better than what this current coaching staff gives. you think its bad this year….look at next years schedule….ive been watching and attending packer games since 1963…..i am not blinded by what is going on….McCarthy is overrated as a coach, and Capers time has come and gone

  53. By Ryan on Jan 4, 2013 | Reply

    Tramon is a top 15 corner in the NFL. If he can work on his tackling he would easily be in the top 10 possibly top 5 even. Let’s go defense, you guys are the key to the Super Bowl!

  54. By duck_fitter on Jan 4, 2013 | Reply

    Tramon Williams most certainly did not cost the Packers that game… That finger should be pointed directly at Sam Shields… He blew the coverage last week that ended the shutout against Tennessee, and he blew the coverage that allowed Minnesota to get into scoring range.
