Roy Williams says he's been most consistent WR on Cowboys
Roy Williams says he’s been the most consistent wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys this season.
Never mind the fumble that cost his team a victory on Thanksgiving. Forget that he also fumbled late in a game in September that prevented the Cowboys from mounting a comeback against the Chicago Bears.
Never mind the drops. Some of the other mistakes. Williams said he’s been the most consistent performer and we can’t make this stuff up.
“I'm nowhere near trying to toot my own horn because I'm not that type of player, but I've been the most consistent wide receiver that we have on this roster,” Williams said on KESN-FM in Dallas, according to the Dallas Morning News. “That can go back all the way to OTAs, training camp and during the season. I'm not getting very many opportunities but I'm doing everything that I'm supposed to do. I'm run blocking, lining up, doing things I'm supposed to do, a lot of things that don't make Sports Center but a lot of things that my coaches see and my teammates see as well.”
Congratulations. He’s been more consistent than a rookie, Dez Bryant. Miles Austin certainly hasn’t matched the huge production he had last year. But Williams should be the best or one of the best receivers for the Cowboys if you’re measuring these players by their pay checks.
Williams deserves credit for standing up in the face of tough times and answering questions. But his 32 receptions for 469 yards and five touchdowns also don’t measure up, whether he feels he’s been consistent or not.
