Dallas Cowboys safety Roy Williams will be going to the Pro Bowl this year. That makes 12 Cowboys heading to Hawaii, a team record. Wow!
Why didn’t the New England Patriots get 12 players in? Why not 13? But that’s really not the issue here.
The issue is Williams replaces Sean Taylor, who was murdered in his home this season. Riggo’s Rag is reporting here that the replacement is a “slap in the face” to the Hogettes. I am sorry to inform him and other Hogettes, but this decision is actually an honor to Taylor. This is certainly no slap in the face. But of course, leave it to the Redskins fans to find something to whine about like little piglets. One week after their current rookie safety tries to cripple our heralded wide receiver, the Redskins fans need to combat that with some hoax cry of controversy. Roy Williams is now a five-time Pro Bowler. No one has a right to disrespect him. One-third of the voting is from the fans, one-third is from the coaches and one-third is from the players. Don’t disrespect Roy, please.
No one has a right to shun him just because of the horse-collar tackles. I saw three players commit horse-collar tackles in games last week and not one was penalized. Why? Because none of those players has the sheer power Roy has. When he grabs someone, he pulls them to the ground with force. He’s a beast. And he’s a feared hitter.
But what is most egregious is how Riggo’s Rag and other meathead Redskins fans fail to realize that Roy plans to honor Sean Taylor. He knows he wouldn’t be playing in the game if Sean Taylor was still alive today. From dallascowboys.com:
Williams said he would do something special for Taylor’s family before the Pro Bowl as a way of showing his respects but didn’t elaborate on the plans. He also said the NFC Pro Bowlers on defense will honor Taylor’s memory, but didn’t say what it would be.
That’s class. Learn that class, Redskins.
