10:20 AM ET 10.12 | Perhaps all anyone needs to know about Cowboys rookie receiver Terrance Williams slipped under the radar this week. The W.T. White product caught four passes for a game-high 151 yards Sunday against Denver, including an 82-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter. Asked about his breakout game, Williams sprinkled these five words in mid-answer: "That's a good starting point." The future looks bright for Williams, a third-round pick out of Baylor who will be on the opposite sideline Sunday night of the quarterback who helped mold him into the player he is today. Before the Cowboys play Washington, Williams will get the chance to catch up with his former Baylor teammate: Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III. Williams said he sometimes talks to Griffin twice a week and planned to send him a text this week. He said Griffin's trust in him grew with every catch he made, similar to what's in the beginning stages now with Tony Romo. "You keep coming down with plays and keep building that trust with him," Williams said, "then no matter what, if something goes wrong, he knows you as somebody he can throw to." Griffin said this week he cherishes the friendships he made with his Baylor receivers to the point that it makes him sad to talk about each one. But he did offer this: "Terrance is a great player, and he knows how I feel about him," Griffin said, "and I'm glad he's able to shine down there in Dallas."

But will he be able to keep Tony from throwing killer interceptions when the games on the line?

Easy answer. NO

Nobody gave Dallas a chance in that game. Romo and the offense put up 48 points. It was only Romo's second pick all year.

I'd give him high marks for his performance last week. Rip him all you want, but overall he played the kind of game most QBs dream about.

Amen.

I didn't think Denver would score 51, but I didn't think they'd need to. I've seen better than expected defensive performance out of Denver considering they've been without Von and Champ and Romo hung a 48 number on them.

It's ultimately Romo's cross to bear. Too often at the end of games he is part of a play that turns the tables to the other team. As a QB, throwing a pick when you've put up 48 points usually isn't an issue but it will always get attached to Romo.

Agree with everything you say...

Except about Champ Bailey. He showed signs of slowing down last year. I don't see that much improvement coming when he returns, especially after such a long hiatus.

Miller, however, is another story. He'll change the dynamic of the D immediately.

Very well said. Heavy is the head that wears the crown.

If he stays healthy (unlike Miles Austin) then Dallas has a legit #2 threat behind Dez Bryant as soon as Williams acclimates into how NFL D's work.

Dallas will win the East. I'm not saying Dallas is great, but by process of elimination, Dallas has the least flaws.

DD, I'm not ripping the guy, I was thoroughly impressed with Romo, for 58 minutes, then......not so much. That's it.

Also, as an Eagles fan, I am obviously cheering for the Eagles to take the division. That will also be like perfuming the pig as it will be a stretch for any of those teams to make .500.

Romo is making SB winner money and has only won 1 playoff game in his career. So again, as an Eagles fan, I hope he stays a Cowboy forever. Just sayin'

I cut down your quote to that line on purpose.

With the CBA, the state of FA, and how those two things affect the dynamic of building a roster, a team must lock up a QB.

You can't wait to see if a QB will win a SB. You have to roll the dice. The exception is Flacco.

The anti-Romo arguments get weaker by the week. And no one seems to remember that Peyton Manning was once landless as the guy who always screwed up in big games.

Until he won a Super Bowl.

And look where he is today. Not saying that'll necessarily happen to Romo but I am saying his alleged history of unclutchness does not mean he is incapable of ever stringing together enough mistake free games to win a "big game" or two at some point in his career.

What's in the past ia in the past. Being a fan is all about hope.
