Roy Williams just can’t catch a break.
The considerable portion of Cowboys’ fans who believe a break isn’t all he can’t catch has followed him from San Antonio to Oxnard, California, and they’re letting their opinions loose on the veteran receiver from the stands. Williams was booed several times in San Antonio, and, despite a fairly impressive showing thus far in SoCal, the hecklers remain.
Lucky for Williams, owner and general manager Jerry Jones--the man who traded for Williams in 2008, and has proven his most consistent supporter since--has the remedy for those nasty old naysayers. As novel an idea as it is, Jones believes that if Williams makes more plays, helps win more games, he may be better received by fans.
Which makes some sense, we suppose.
“Make some plays,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I tell guys all along the one place you've got the greatest chance to rehab public opinion, no matter what you're rehabbing, is big plays. Big plays and winning games do wonders about the way people look at you.”
