Roy Williams had zero catches in the Dallas Cowboys 34-3 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Although he had seven touchdowns, he had career lows in catches and yards. I am not sure anyone has been able to wrap their head around the baffling performance of Williams. He was thrown to just one time.
As I have said before, I reviewed many hours of game tape and I couldn’t for the life of me figure out why Williams was not getting the ball. I didn’t see incredible route running, but another thing I spotted was that Romo never really looked for him out on the field.
Williams expressed some of his frustration after the loss Sunday. Williams is by far the most overpaid wide receiver in the NFL, making more than $1 million per catch for his entire contract.
“I didn’t get a ball today, and I didn’t get a look at today. It just happens,” Williams said. “It’s frustrating. It pisses me off, especially when we lose and especially when I feel like I have a mismatch. I got a 5-10 corner [covering me, Dontonio Wingfield], but hey, you know, I will continue to work hard in the offseason and it will come back around.”
Williams said in the same article that he expected to be back in Dallas for the 2010-11 season. He says that if he has another poor season in silver and blue then he expects to be released. He is still owed $21 million in guaranteed cash and $9 million for this coming season.
