    Patrick Crayton 16-207 1 TD
    Roy Williams 15-209 1TD

    And with TO/Witten/MB3/Felix cat those trends will not change.....

    Look at who's throwing Williams the ball, in Dallas I guarantee he'd see the ball much more...

    Kitna other than last game or two was putting up numbers.

    Roy needs to stop dropping the ball too - word is 5 drops last game and that is not a new trend.

    Back to stats - Crayton is same production.

    Agreed. I dont know how much production any guy we could get would add.

    More Fear for the opposing teams defense for sure. But when you have all the guys we have I dont think it would add a whole lot more from a production standpoint.

    TO's still going to get doubled teams, Wittens still going to get single coverage, Barber will still be an open target out of the backfield.

    Swing and a miss.

    He's not. Seen this act for years.

    He also isn't taking into account Detroit has already had their bye week.

    To use stats for your argument is silly as well. By your logic, there are 12 RB's better than LT too.

    Yes, there are probably 15-20 backs better than a pretty injured LT. Stats back that up too - :)

    So you believe Julius Jones is better than LT? OK, I'm done with this thread.

    im going to have to agree with the op

    but the argument can go both ways. He was the #1 target in a pass happy scheme for a few years. here, he would have to give away touches to TO witten, barber, felix , and crayton will still be in there somewhere since we gave him a new contract for whatever reason

    he would post better numbers than crayton but not by much just because of who we have

    in terms of talent and looking forward he is WAYYY more talented than any receiver we have besides owens. and could eventually replace owens here in the next year or so

    Right off the bat what I see missing from this post is:

    Romo's stats
    TO's stats
    Wittens's stats
    MB3 stats
    Felix's stats

    with Roy Williams on the field instead of Crayton.

    EVERYONE improves with RW in the offense...

    Come on... that was easy.

    In Detroit's offense, Crayton would probably be lucky to crack 400 yards and 3 TDs this season. He undoubtedly benefits from all the coverage everyone else on this team draws.

    Roy Williams is light years better. But I do wonder if he isn't a tad overrated here. I think he's a good player, almost Pro Bowl caliber, but not a lights-out player in this league. He would improve the team though.

    We don't need lights out, but improvement never hurts.

    Yet Shaun Mcdonald get's 80 catches and Furrey has had 100 in Detroit? People are going for "name" yet again here.

    Lets go to more stats :)


    2007
    Roy Williams 64-838 and 5 TD's
    Crayton 50-697 7 TD's


    still don't see much separation in production.

    12 games (Williams) versus 16 games (Crayton).

    I bet you still don't see it.
