When Terrell Owens left Dallas in the off-season, the hope was that he would take all of the whining and sour grapes with him. Turns out, he just left them right where they were for the next guy. Roy Williams, commence the public bashing of your quarterback and not-at-all-thinly veiled jabs at the guy lining up across the field from you.
"I'm the No. 1 receiver, but things are just going No. 2's way...It's just not even close. It's not even funny. Not even close."
The rift puts attention back on Romo who still hasn't shaken the reputation for being less than clutch when it matters most. For the record, Romo has thrown the ball Williams' way 37 times this season and Roy has managed to grab a mere 14 of them. Since arriving from Detroit in a trade last year, Williams has 33 catches, 447 yards and three touchdowns. On the other hand, Austin has set an NFL record with 482 yards in his first three starts, scoring on five of his 21 receptions.
Williams gave the obligatory "winning matters most" soundbite but I think everyone knows better. If Williams' predecessor has taught us anything, it's that these things always have a way of not working out. We'll see where this one goes and how many passes Williams sees this weekend when the Cowboys face the Eagles.
