NFL  > Dallas Cowboys  > Roy Williams Should Be Traded For A Cheese Pizza!!
November 25, 2010, 08:53 PM
Many may not agree.... but Dallas has too much talent with Dez, Miles, Witten, etc. to keep a guy like Roy Williams. I know N.O. defenders were going after the ball, but Roy should have known to protect it better. Dallas makes that play - game over. But Roy fumbles and the comeback that Dallas worked so hard for..... one that Dallas earned is wiped out. That type of player, with his bloated salary, is not needed on this team. The Cowboys are in a position to evaluate talent the remaining games and make some serious changes..... Roy should be on that list of players to seriously consider whether they want him back next year.

DallsFann77,
fair analysis and Roy is very hit or miss. He was not being foolish with the ball. Unaware of the player behind him. Put it away from the tackler Miles was blocking...

BUT how did our secondary allow the 90 yards to Drew and his gang. We have NO secondary.

true.... that last drive after the turnover looked way too easy. as for leadership.... dallas has won their last 2 prior to this game and should have won this one. at least they are competitive now. when wade was HC we were getting blown out in many games. i think they've turned a corner.... but not sure if garrett is the answer still. did hear this week that JJ is considering putting together a "super team" of assistants suggesting he'd keep garrett at HC. what the heck is a "super team" of assistants???

Jerry is so Full of ****....super team of assistants. He should just be thankful that his team made a respectable go of it on National TV during the Turkey Day football fest. at 17-0 he must have been sick. Props to RHG to get them charged up and out for the second half to make it a real interesting game.

If you see a secondary please send to Arlington Tx.

Not to be defending Roy Williams, but he has made some outstanding plays this year, but he does make bone headed plays.......... just like Felix Jones, or Miles Austin. They've all made those kind of errors, especially this year. Kudos to the defender who did make a very good play, and he gets paid as well. Roy should have been more aware, but it is what it is. I was just happy the Cowboys made it into a game, and not a wash out as I was expecting, especially after the first quarter. They should have and could have won the game, but you have to admit they're a lot better than they had been prior to Wade's firing, and that should give us something to look forward to.

I am now able to watch them play, win, lose or draw, and know they're at least trying, whereas prior to Wade leaving, I was just disgusted. Now, I'm not. They did make a good game of it, and that's more than I really expected. If they win on out, they'd be 8-8, which is more than I would have thought possible just a few games ago.

Other problem is Roy has made multiple foot-in-mouth comments to the press this year.

After Week 3... ???I want to be a part of this puzzle and show that I???m worthy of everything that I???ve gotten,??? Williams said. ???I???m still the same player. I???m still a Pro Bowler.???

Regarding Miles Austin... "I'm the No. 1 receiver," Williams said. "But things are just going No. 2's way."

After the Cowboys opened 1-6... "We can go nine in a row, if you ask me," Williams said Thursday. "People can call me stupid or whatever, but this football team has the core of players, it has the supporting cast of players to win nine in row. We just got to get it started just for other players to be like, 'All right, we got it now.'"

Anyone who smiles on the sideline after making that bonehead play should be gone! They would have a least gotton a field goal out of that drive and more importantly chewed up additional clock time after the first down.

I noticed that too. Well, we'll see if Jerry does as he says.......no one is sacred, or words to that effect. Roy may be a goner come the end of the season, but somehow I doubt it.

BGDEUCE,
The defense was passable for 55 minutes of the game, unfortunately in the other 5 minutes they gave up the 80 yard opener, and the 90ish yard final drive. I think but am not sure there was a 55ish yard completion in BOTH drives. Moving Ball to safety was a mistake, he is too slow (in the head) for the position and you always see him in trail and late to the ball. A safety can't make a living like that. Campo must go.

That drives me crazy....they were in position to win had he protected the ball. To laugh about it after the fact, when he put an insane amount of pressure on his D to stop Brees and Co....that's a tall order for any team to do (stop Brees).
Dallas for what it is worth did a pretty good job on D, that could easily have been a lopsided game with the Saints rolling. If the Dallas D was considered "elite" and they let that happen, then you can hang it on them....but they are not, and the Saints offense is "elite".
Roy is the goat no matter how you paint it.

Got to agree with you on this one trade him for a 7th if your lucky but did you see how they completley avioded getting the ball to the new PLAYMAKER!

I don't know about the rest of you guys, but I think they did more than expected, losing by only 3 points, when the Saints had a 17 point lead in the first quarter. Regardless of any "goats" or "non goats"......the Cowboys were beaten as a TEAM, not as any particular individual. Yes, I don't understand the smile on Williams' face after the fact, but the defense should have stopped them. They didn't.

The Saints weren't without mistakes. This game should have been blown out of the water the first half, but it wasn't. It was a very good game, considering the state of the Cowboys right now. I didn't expect that close a game.

I hear ya Bull, believe me...I was rooting for the Boys. I thought they played well, enough to hang with N.O. and had the lead with a chance to seal it.
Kitna has been playing very well, Dez is really good now....and WR's make the biggest leap in their 2nd years, that will be scary. They have been playing better than their record indicates the last few weeks, and will make it tough for opposing teams facing them, that have playoff aspirations. There are going to be teams in the NFC that may not make the playoffs with 10-6 11-5 records with the log jams going on.
As you mention with the state of affairs, they are playing for pride right now.

I never, ever expected Kitna to play like he has. I figured he'd be another cheap QB like Brad "Noodle Arm" Johnson, just taking up space, but considering he's not taken a snap in a long time, he's done better than I could have dreamed. Especially in the circumstances the 'Boys find themselves in.

Dez needs to understand that there will be times when he won't be the focus, but a decoy of sorts, and those are just as important as being the focus. The game itself is a game of deception.

I've seen the posts here and some video as well and am not SURE that it might not be a grimace as he tries to catch his wind. It does seem to evolve into a smile of sorts.

I am not a huge fan of Roy but this has been his best year with the Cowboys so far. They will get nothing for a trade from him. Too bad but that money is spent so let's try and get what we can.

Overall I think he is NOT very smart and that is the reason for his slow start. He just has no situational awareness about what is going on around him and on the field in many cases. In a fast moving game that is bad.

I can't agree.Football is the ultimate team game. While the fumble may have been the biggest play of the game New Orleans still had to go 90 yards in less than 3 minutes...it didn't even take them a minute.

Momentum, Momentum, Momentum. If he hadn't fumbled New Orleans would have lost momentum and the game would have been secured if Dallas had scored a TD. The fumble left the Dallas defense in shock and gave New Orleans momentum.
