Roy on KTBB.com ------------------------------ I have many thoughts on this interview that are both negative and positive. The negative first this way I am able to end on a good note. Roy has become so thin skinned from the Dallas media and the fans taking him to task because he isn't the same player as he was a few years ago. He is resilient on his point that the fans/media are sometimes 'lacking the knowledge' of what's going on when he's on the field. For me this pertains to the criticism he gets about his coverage skills. I have said it a few million times already that I could care less if his coverage skills improve as long as he gets back to making 'dynamic' plays. Those plays for me are Sacks, Tackles for Losses, Forced Fumbles and some big hits here and there. As always I really hope he can do that this season because it helps the Dallas Cowboys! If he can't then I feel the Cowboys can't continue to pay him so much money while he's not being used on the nickel/dime situations and he isn't making those dynamic plays. He also says his production isn't down because he makes a lot of tackles. To me that's Wade talking. Tackling a guy after he catches a pass or after he is 12 yards downfield is ok, but then on the other hand it's not ok because of the money he's making. Now for the good. At least he is in some ways taking the criticism on. He isn't as defensive and he is once again talking to the media and trying to mend fences. Roy has always been a team player. I never questioned that. I have questioned his 'passion' for the game on occasions and I still have some doubts that football is as important to him as it once was, but he has said he is reinvigorated this season and I hope to see that once the season begins. I also think his way of life is a good thing. He has never been in any off the trouble and he's a great help to those around him in need. Now for the broken record. I just want that old Roy back that used to make opposing offenses fear him. I want to once again be able to be proud to say the Cowboys have the hardest hitting Safety in the game. I want to once again hear the name Roy Williams and it relay some thoughts of him helping the team win football games on the level that Demarcus Ware, Tony Romo, Terrell Owens, Marion Barber, Jason Witten, Terence Newman, etc. help the team win football games. At one point he was among that group of names and I hope one day this season he is once again a part of that group.
