Despite early stumbles, Williams holds together a decimated CBs unit and leads Pro Bowl voting.

Cary has redeemed himself, admirably, since the beginning of the season!

He's getting more success playing tighter and hitting harder and turning his head around on deeper passes! He has definitely stepped it up a bit since Lardarius went down!

He will still need a 'Reality Check' in contract negotiations! He's not indespensible especially with the way FA Corey Graham has come on!

If anything, this season has shown you can't have too many corners. Hope the team and Cary come to terms that are reasonable for everybody. Still gotta pay Joe and Ed...

Trust me, Burress does not put the fear into opposing defenses anymore. Even in the red zone, he is just not in shape to win battles with top corners.

Cary has improved a lot. I give him credit for all his effort and determination. I was once told that persistence is the ket to success. I believe it. I'm glad to see our "D" coming back. Long way to go but: persistence.

Cary keep fighting...

I really don't care what anyone says, but, I give props to Cary Williams for trying to be the best he can be, day in and day out! That's all I can ask from any Raven frankly!

I like Williams. We all know he's more inconsistent than Webb but he plays like a Raven. he finds a way to fight through adversity and end up on top. I like this guy just because of his work ethic even if he does get picked on at times. Atleast we can say he is headed in the right direction. Who knows, maybe Webb and Cary will become the top 2 corner duos in the league for years to come. Lets go Ravens.

I admit I was one of those people that was calling for Cary to get benched or even as far as saying get rid of him but boy was I wrong. Yes he may still give up some plays(which happens in the NFL) but he's played much better and is leading all AFC cb's in pro bowl voting which is a surprise.

Oh man, I'm actually startin to like this guy. At least as far as work ethic and attitude goes. The whole pro-bowl talk really isnt warranted though, 2 of those interceptions my grandmother coulda made....errant passes, not tight coverage. However, i havent seen him flailing his arms around, with his back to the ball, five yards behind the receiver lately. Credit where its due, he has markedly improved but as far as a contract goes...I'd offer him the same deal, maybe with some better incentives. If he opts for another team, see ya...plenty of corners out there that would love to be a Raven!

I like Williams, I don't like his agent. Or Flaccos for that matter. Both have been offered more then the fair share. He will do like Grubbs , take the money and go to a loosing team. I would take my chances with Graham , Webb and give smith another year since he is still playing under his rookie contract. There will be a lot of tough decisions next year with the cap.....

I must say, I've always been very critcal of Cary Williams in the past. Many teams have deemed him as the weakest link and have attacked him on multiple occasions. But for the most part he's held his own and done very well. After look at with Pittsburgh did last time, I would expect he'll be ready.

Props to C Williams for not becoming complacent with a 15 mil deal and a back up role. I hope he keeps fighting and I hope we can find a way to sign him back. Webb, Williams, J. Smith, Graham, Chykie, Asa would be a pretty damn solid CB core.
