After going over a hundred yards, scoring two TD’s, receiving a game ball from his head coach, and getting a free ribeye from Dez Bryant, Cowboys wideout Roy Williams is feeling pretty good about himself lately. Pretty, pretty, pretttaaayyy good. So much so that he’s telling everyone he’s still a Pro Bowler.
"I want to be part of the puzzle and show that I'm worthy of everything I've gotten," Williams said. "I'm still the same player. I'm still a Pro Bowler. I want to continue what I've been doing."
This, of course, begs the question: Roy Williams went to a Pro Bowl? Really?

Well, I’ll be. Did 12 other wideouts sit out the game that year?
We’ve had our fun with Roy Williams here in the past, and that’s because he usually sucks. It’s nice that he decided to NOT suck last week, but that is by no means a guarantee of nonsuckage in coming weeks. Fluky good wideout weeks happen all the time. I’ll be curious to see if Roy’s “breakout” week is a Frisman Jackson-style anomaly, or if it’s a precursor of good things to come, as Miles Austin’s Kansas City game was last year.
Because if Roy really has come back and become a good wideout, then the Cowboys’ offense could evolve past where it was toward the end of last season. With Dez Bryant and a functioning Williams on hand, Tony Romo could potentially have the best offense to ever surround him. It could give him quick outs if the line gives way. And it could mean that Dallas could get to the point where the offense is scoring 35 points a game. That could happen if Roy turns out to finally be the real deal. Could it happen? Will it happen?
