Things I Think I Think

SI's fearless NFL expert opines on all the latest news, buzz and inside information. This is just a taste of what you'll get in King's Monday Morning Quarterback.

1 I think the most amazing thing I've heard in the last month, and I've confirmed it with someone close to Roy Wiliams (below), is that the Dallas receiver was never on a consistent weightlifting program in his life before this off-season. "I'm serious," this acquaintance of Williams's told me. "Roy never lifted before."

2 I think the most worrisome thing about the previous note is what it says about Williams's former team, the Detroit Lions, and what in tarnation they've been doing with their strength and conditioning procedures. No weight program that receivers have had to live by, in season and out? Ridiculous.

3 I think Laveranues Coles might be the perfect receiver to replace T.J. Houshmandzadeh in Cincinnati because Coles, who hates to talk to the press, is glad to cede all the interviews to Chad Ochocinco while he just plays. Coles is healthy now. If Carson Palmer can stay upright, Coles is going to catch 70 balls, easy.
