It’s been no secret that Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams is not having the year everyone expected him to have. His numbers are way down and he’s currently being put in the shadow of Miles Austin who has stepped up and had big games the last few weeks. If for some reason we didn’t think there was a problem, we know there is now after the comments Roy Williams made this week. When talking about the timing him and quarterback Tony Romo have together, Williams said the following:
“It’s just not even close. It’s not even funny. Not even close. I’m the No. 1 receiver, but things are just going No. 2′s way.”
You know this type of talk isn’t good. To make matters even worse, Williams added the following:
“He gets the ball thrown correctly his way,” Williams said of Austin. “I’m stretching and falling and doing everything. Everybody [else] who’s been here’s balls are there. Our footballs [from Romo to Williams] are everywhere right now.”
For me, I love seeing this type of talk come from other teams locker rooms. When players aren’t happy, they don’t play well. Williams was brought in so the Cowboys could get T.O. out of their hair. However, I’m starting to see some T.O. qualities come out in Williams. These statements remind me a lot of when T.O. had the issue of Romo throwing to Jason Witten to much and not himself.
Come Sunday, I hope to see the Eagles keep Williams from getting his hands on the ball. Maybe if we’re lucky and Williams doesn’t get much action in the first half we can see some T.O.-like sideline drama.
