08:05 AM ET 12.24 | The Comeback Player of the Year Award doesn't even merit discussion in 2010, which is too bad for Seattle's Mike Williams. Williams had been rescued before, but for it to happen a second time, the former USC All-American and top-10 draft pick had to save himself. After being taken 10th overall in the 2005 draft by the Detroit Lions, Williams caught 44 passes for three different teams over three seasons and was cut by each. He spent the '08 and '09 seasons out pro football completely, taking in far more pounds -- 50 or 60, by some estimates -- than he had passes as a pro. "I just kind of went astray ... I was just lost, sort of, emotionally and couldn't pick myself up," Williams recalled Wednesday.

Good for him. I'm glad he was able to get himself back in the game. It has to be discouraging, however, that he still isn't making as much money as he did while in college at U$C.

Sorry, CD, but when it comes to matters of a certain university in the southern part of California, I think I am more of a realist. In any event, have a joyful Christmas holiday, and I hope 2011 brings you good fortune and good health.

Goind good...working a short day. Gonna get some heavy rain for a good part of the day but should move out by later this evening. We haven't had rain in about a month so it's quite dry and has been a real big fire concern.
