At the risk of upsetting Corey, I am now going to tell you the bad news about Tramon Williams’ performance on Monday night. It wasn’t the pass interference penalties. It was the fact that, in one nationally televised instant, Williams has made himself a target for officials and teams for the rest of the season. Monday night was not only ugly from the standpoint of the penalties themselves and the damage they inflicted on the team yardage wise, but it crystallized for an entire football-watching nation Tramon Williams’ reputation. From here on out he will be known as the ‘Armbar Guy’ or some variation thereof. (Football Outsiders has opted for Admiral Armbar, in reference to Admiral Ackbar. Unfortunately they seem to have taken down their brilliant picture for fear of facing a Lucasfilm Lawyer)
You thought teams were going after Tramon before? It’s going to be ridiculous now until he learns to stop grabbing receivers and starts playing the ball.
