    HOUSTON – In his biggest day as a Cowboy – his first 100-yard game in a victory since leaving Detroit – Williams saved the Cowboys' season in a 27-13 win over the Houston Texans.

    "We're still a 1-2 football team," Williams said. "That's not good. We just needed to get the ball rolling."

    The absence of chemistry between Romo and Williams almost two years after the receiver's arrival from Detroit has puzzled not only the fans and media but those who have tried hard to pretend all is well.

    But even coach Wade Phillips sounded like a man who was wondering when this day would come.

    "In the past, for some reason, Roy ran those slants and the pass was behind him or Roy cut it short," Phillips said, shaking his head. "They got it in sync today."

    "I haven't done what's expected of me my first year or two here," he said. "This year, I'm just trying to work hard be productive when I get my chances."

    So I been critical of Roy, but you can't help like him a little for his honesty and willingness to face where he is at and not hide from it.

    It is starting to look like something is clicking for him.

    Or maybe facing the opponent's 3rd best CB was just what the doctor ordered for him ;)

    I will take it, whatever it is.

    Yeah, I love Roy... And no, I'm *not* at UT fan. He's gotten a ton of crap for something Jerry did -- overpaying (for) him. But he's handled it with a lot of class.

    And today shows what can happen when Tony has confidence in him and throws him some catchable passes.

    Speedkilz said he's only due 5 million next year. I hope we keep him around.

    Did Roy give his TD ball to a young Houston fan in the end zone? It looked like he did. It was a classy gesture, if that's what happened.

    He sure did. Think you could see his mom saying, "Thank you so much."

    Wait, I was so tired last night I wasn't reading correctly... I thought he picked out a young *Cowboys* fan to give the ball to. Maybe not and they were Texans fans.

    he's always done that but people don't notice because of their head exploding when he throws up the Horns sign. :laugh2:

    I know he does, but yesterday it looked like it was a Houston fan and not a Cowboy fan who got the ball. It's pretty cool, if true.

    "Williams understands it, too. He's a highly paid former first-round pick who cost the Cowboys two first-round picks yet rarely delivers."


    I thought it was a first and a third. Am I wrong or is Cowlishaw?
