Roy Williams is becoming a scratched record in Dallas: he keeps repeating that his drops will stop and his play will improve for the Dallas Cowboys.
He told the media the same thing last year after a dismal half year with the Cowboys. He was brought on this team to become the No. 1 receiver after the Cowboys let Terrell Owens go.
Williams’ eight drops was 12th in the NFL, or 25 percent of the Cowboys 32 total drops.
This time, Williams is working more with Tony Romo on those little nuances that make a receiver better.
“I bet anybody in this world I won’t be close to that [in 2010],” said Williams, who was participating in the team’s annual sponors’ golf outing at Cowboys Golf Club on Wednesday.
I don’t mind the confidence Williams has to improve, but we’ve heard this before. He said the exact same thing last year and although he started the season with a bang, he was worthless for most of the other 15 games. What’s going to be so different in 2010-11?
