    Per Pete Prisco (CBS Sportsline.com staff writer) just this past offseason.

    I wonder if idiot Prisco would consider himself to be WRONG on his assessment of Roy Williams?

    Roy Williams:

    Leads the ENTIRE NFL in takeaways by a single player... with 7
    5 Interceptions... which would possibly land him tied for 1st among ALL SAFETIES. (waiting for stats updates on other players)
    2 fumble recoveries
    11 pass deflections (at least 1 pass def. in all but 1 game)
    only 3 TD's allowed thru 10 games (compare that to 7 TD's allowed by Sean Taylor thru 9 games)

    The only thing that's missing is tackles and sacks... BUT, with how good our defense has been, there's been no need to have him helping in the box and blitzing much because our front 7 have been handling that job just fine.

    Stats for other safeties:
    Polamalu - 3 int, 1 sack, 1 FF, 7 pass def.
    Reed - 2 int, 1 TD (from teammate handoff), 1 pass def., 1 FF
    Sean Taylor - 3 FF's, 3 Pass def., (0 sacks, 0 int)
    Brian Dawkins - 1 int (from Bledsoe :)), 3 FF, 6 pass def.

    Is Roy Williams STILL to be considered OVERRATED?

    Um....I'm gonna have to call BS. I have it on good authority that Adam Archuleta, Sean Taylor, Willie Pile, and Lance Armstong's left nut all have more skill at the safety position than Roy Williams. :rolleyes:

    The defense used to be built around Roy, now he's just a solid piece of the puzzle.

    You left out the best part. Check this out...........

    Dallas Cowboys
    Overrated: Williams is a good player when near the line of scrimmage, but he can't be called a top-tier safety because he struggles so much in coverage. He's a decent, not great player. His reputation would lead you to believe he was great.

    Underrated: Drew Bledsoe is one of those quarterbacks who always gets picked apart, no matter what he does. But he had a heck of a year for the Cowboys, throwing for 3,639 yards and 23 touchdowns.

    So much for Mr. Underrated. :lmao:
