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 just saw on NFL.com that Ben will not be playing Sunday. What baffles me is why the false bravado when you know full well you are not going to play? Why the melodrama insisting he'll try to tough it out despite having an injury? This is the problem I have with Ben in that he is fragile in reality, but, puts on such an act of toughness for public consumption, that most of these idiot pundits and Steeler fans actually believe he is tough!

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.

Williams stepped his game up and he deserves alot of praise for it, but our CB squad is pretty solid with lots of young talent and we have a couple big contracts coming up on offense, that have to be taken care of, so I don't see him getting that huge contract he wants.

Everyone gets torched by brady.... just ask darrel revis.... Best corner in the NFL? gets torched twice a year by the hall of famer. Moss and Brady vs. Revis was a Hall of fame matchup.

Dam i wish we kept Grubbs.... Best Blocker on our team.... but we have done well with guards in the 3rd round (Marshall yanda) Jah Reid is the starting Left guard. And he was an OT prospect and we got him in the 3rd round... and he's very big.... I still miss grubbs :( Williams will get a 4 year twenty five million dollar deal.

I still don't believe that was PI. He turned and made a play for the ball. Contact came while he made a play on the throw, so Where's the penalty?

Williams is still a bum, "he is playing for a new contract" is exactly just that. he knows he was garbage the first half of the season so now he is trying to make up ground to earn a contract. i hope that contract is from another team, do not over pay for him!

and leading the pro bowl vote? who cares! any schmuck can vote online these days, its probably the kagillion steelers bandwagon nation voting for him as a joke!
