Mike Williams' twitter account is certainly starting to turn into...something. After that little snafu with his baby mama/contract, he's just continuing a string of over the top tweets. Ah well, at least it's entertaining -- even when he's wrong. Like here:
BUC SITE SAY I started every game but 1 my whole CAREER YEA! good compliment but thats NT true I STARTED EVERY GAME MY WHOLE CAREE. FIX IT!— * Mike Williams * (@Mikebuc19) July 15, 2013
Well, Mike, I'm sorry to break it to you -- but you're wrong. You started every game in your career, except one: the Week 9 game of the 2011 season against the New Orleans Saints. Because in that game, you weren't on the field on the first play of the game.
"@Bucs_Nation: Except He wasn't in the starting lineup for the week 9 game against the Saints in 2011." THAT'S WRONG I STAYED THAT GAME TOO.— * Mike Williams * (@Mikebuc19) July 15, 2013
Using caps lock is not going to make you more right, Mike, sorry.
I know, I know. The way the NFL counts starters and the significance with which its used isn't really logical if you think about it for a few seconds (snap counts would be much more sensible), but that's just the way it's defined. The players on the field for the first play of the game are the starters. That's just the way it is. And you weren't on the field for the first play of the game.
Don't believe me? Well, look for yourself:
That's Arrelious Benn at the bottom, Demar Dotson, Kellen Winslow and Luke Stocker at the right side of the offensive line and Legarrette Blount in the backfield. It's obviously a run-heavy formation, and Benn was often on the field for those plays because he was a better run blocker. I don't see a Mike WIlliams anywhere on the field, there, though.
Not convinced it's Benn?

So, Mike Williams, you were not a starter for one game in your career. I hope you'll survive this terrifying blow to your statistics.
