Raider inspired by Martz - Sacramento Bee
Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz gave receiver Mike Williams the blues last year.

Martz made it known when he was hired that Williams wasn't his kind of player.

He was merciless in his critiques of Williams, the 10th overall pick in the 2005 NFL draft who was in the midst of an underwhelming two-year stay with the Lions.

Williams said he still could hear Martz's voice in his head during practices with the Raiders. And he couldn't be more thankful.

If Williams can fulfill the promise he showed in two seasons at USC by making the Raiders and having an impact this season, it will be because of the prodding he took from Martz last season...
