Dud of the Week: Roy Williams

It it impossible to prove whether or not Detroit Lions wide receiver Roy Williams and his now-infamous guaranteed victory had any direct effect on how well the Bears played on Sunday. What is easy to prove, however, is that he came up embarrassingly short on said guarantee. Williams is the open-mouth-insert-foot Bear Report Dud of the Week.

According to the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, a guarantee is defined as, "An assurance for the fulfillment of a condition: as A) an agreement by which one person undertakes to secure another in the possession or enjoyment of something, or B) an assurance of the quality of or of the length of use to be expected from a product offered for sale often with a promise of reimbursement."

After suffering a tough 9-6 loss to the defending NFC champion Seattle Seahawks in Week 1, Detroit Lions wide receiver Roy Williams boldly professed that his offense very easily could have scored 40 points that day and can not be stopped if functioning at full capacity. Furthermore, he guaranteed a victory over the Bears in Week 2 at Soldier Field. After a 34-7 drubbing at the hands of the Monsters of the Midway, the former Longhorn may want to dig up a dictionary of his own and double-check the above definition.

Williams may have had a decent day statistically with six catches for 71 yards, but he made an absolute fool of himself with his demonstrative body language after first downs. Seemingly oblivious to what was going on around him, all he had to do was take a peek at the scoreboard to realize his team was getting blown off the field. Williams continued to speak boldly in the locker room after Sunday's meltdown and promised that he will continue to make guarantees as he sees fit, so for his stunningly lack of media savvy, he is the no-doubt-about-it winner of the Bear Report Dud of the Week.
