    IRVING, Texas -- The patience and determination of Roy Williams are monk-like.

    They have to be.

    He signed a $45 million contract and hasn't held up his end of the bargain.

    But the Roy Williams the Dallas Cowboys are paying for showed up Sunday afternoon at Reliant Stadium.

    He caught five passes for 117 yards and two touchdowns. The touchdown receptions were from 63 and 15 yards. Of the 10 biggest plays in the Cowboys' 27-13 victory over the Houston Texans, Williams was involved in three of them.

    It would appear the chemistry between Tony Romo and Williams is finally there.

    Williams disagrees. He says it's been there all season.

    "I'm glad it hasn't been talked about, but it's been there from game one," Williams said. "It's always been there. It's been under the radar, and that's the way I want to keep it. I don't want it on me. I just want to keep playing my game."

    Bout damn time they started using Roy Williams correctly. He may not be the fastest or the run the best routes but it didn't help that Romo was so inaccurate the majority of throws to him.

    Roy ain't slow he's just a long strider and doesn't have the same quickness as Dez or Miles.

    Funny title. Maybe Watkins should start "earning his keep" and write some halfway decent articles.

    1 good game is earning his keep??? I don't get it. I truly do hope he has more games like last Sunday, but it's definitely going to take more than 1 great performance for me.

    Someone said it a few days ago and I agree. If not for Alex Barron's holding penalty, Roy Williams is this team's early-season MVP.

    Other than the fumble that shouldn't have been, I think he's been excellent this season.

    I see a noticeable improvement over the #11 from last year and I hope he keeps it up!
