Biggs: Roy feeling pressure in Big D
Roy Williams gets it.
The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver knows he needs to step up his play, and quick.
If it wasn’t for the emergence of Miles Austin this season, there would be a greater focus on the anti-Herschel Walker trade. The Cowboys’ dynasty run under Jimmy Johnson was built by the trade of the running back Walker, and Jerry Jones’ blockbuster deal for Williams last season looks like a dud. Terrell Owens was a major pain but he produced. Dallas is having difficulty coaxing that out of Williams, who has two receptions for 18 yards in the last three games.
“If I continue to do the things I've been doing, I'm going to mess around and be on the sidelines playing special teams,' Williams told David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.
Williams dropped two of three passes thrown his way at Washington, and one resulted in an interception.
"I didn't get a look in the second half, so that's telling me my quarterback has lost that confidence in me and so has the coordinator in calling the play for me,’’ he said. “That's not on them. I don't blame them. I've brought it on myself. I've got to get my stuff together and help this team win some games in the playoffs.
"I feel like I have to do something out of the ordinary here instead of just playing my game and letting the ball come to me,' Williams said. "This season has been weird for me. I've always said I'll take less stats for more wins, and that's what's happening. I think I'm getting tested by the man upstairs seeing if I'm really what I say I am.’’
