Things haven’t been great for the Cowboys’ self-proclaimed No. 1 receiver, Roy Williams, in recent weeks.
First, there was obscure Miles Austin emerging as QB Tony Romo‘s go-to guy. Of course, there was the fumble against the Packers. And the Fox broadcasters in Sunday’s game all but accused Williams of being scared on the field but stopped just short.
LaRon Landry didn’t stop short.
The Redskins’ safety accused Williams of being scared during an interview with the team’s official Web site.
- “Scared,” Landry said flatly. “Yeah. I know he was. Y’all can quote it, too. Y’all can tell him right now, tell him I’m sayin’ it. I can say it right now: yeah, he was scared, I think. I told him he was scared.” …
- “Certain pass concepts they had,” Landry continued, by way of explaining how he knew Williams was scared. “Certain routes he ran, you could tell he didn’t want any part of it.” …
- And what did Williams say when Landry called him scared? “Nothing,” Landry said.
- (A reporter pointed out that Williams would be here in a few weeks, and Landry chuckled. “I don’t care,” he said. “What’s that gonna do?”)
Yes, what is Williams going to do except, say, win another game over the Redskins? Maybe advance into the playoffs? Williams and the Cowboys did, after all, win Sunday’s game.
