Even Roy Williams Loses Confidence In Himself

The article I am going to paste below speaks for itself. It’s disappointing that not even Roy Williams has confidence in his play anymore. I really hope he can show some improvement this season.

IRVING – Pro Bowl strong safety Roy Williams said he’s still trying to get comfortable in the Cowboys’ defense and admitted he sometimes doesn’t want opposing quarterbacks to throw the ball toward him. “I will admit at times, when I had one-on-one situations and you’re head up on a tight end or a receiver that can go left or right, it’s tough,” Williams said Thursday on the Michael Irvin radio show.

“I mean, it’s just tough. Sometimes you just hope they don’t throw the ball your way, because sometimes you’re like, if they go inside, you don’t have any help; if they go outside, you don’t have any help.”

Defensive coordinator Brian Stewart said it is difficult to cover man-to-man but hopes his players “want a part of the action, no matter what it is.”

Williams, however, said he is still trying to find a comfort zone in coach Wade Phillips’ 3-4 defense. The scheme requires Williams to take the tight end in pass coverage at times, and play close to the line of scrimmage and make plays against the run at others.

“I’m going to have to get comfortable in the system,” he said. “It’s not easy with the coaching change. You’re used to one thing and then you have to adjust to another playing style.”

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is hopeful the addition of secondary coach Dave Campo, – Williams’ first NFL coach in 2002 – will help.

“We want turnovers, and Roy is a turnover guy,” Jones said. “I think we shouldn’t dismiss it that it can be a part of his game.”
