The State Of Roy Williams
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams and quarterback Tony Romo have been playing catch since February.

However, the two remain a work in progress.

One of the major offseason moves in the NFC East was the release of Terrell Owens from the Dallas Cowboys. While Owen's was often silenced in the rivalry games against the Eagles, he always required double coverage and he took advantage of coverage for a touchdown once last season when Brian Dawkins was covered. Needless to say, he was on Jim Johnson's mind.
Now the torch of Big Play threat has been passed to Roy Williams, who was acquired from the Detroit Lions for 1st, 3rd, and 5th Round pick in the 2009 draft. Clearly it may not be working out as well as they thought.

There is still miscommunication and some visible signs of frustration when they don’t or can’t connect in practice.

Williams barked at Romo on Monday after a ball didn’t come his way when he was open.

"I was frustrated and I let him know," Williams said. "But that’s what we’re supposed to do. This is our job. His job is to deliver the ball. My job is to catch it and get open. That’s how you win, and that’s all I want to do."

After the outburst, the next two balls were thrown in Williams’ direction. He then caught an over-the-shoulder deep ball between two defenders for the catch of the day.



And the Cowboy's thought they had enough of the ball-seeking drama T.O. brought...

And in an article on The Bleacher Report Grisso say that the Cowboy's major downfall, and the reason they won't make the playoffs, is because too much of the offense is based on this relationship. He point's out that Williams' numbers have regressed annually.

8 TD's in 2005 compared to just 7 in '06, 5 in '07, and 2 last year, and he had only 2 more receptions in 10 games with Dallas last year than he did in 5 with Detroit
