A lot of people around Dallas are concerned about the Cowboys’ offense. Roy Williams just isn’t one of them.
The Cowboys’ offensive starters have mustered just one touchdown this preseason--a fade from Tony Romo to Miles Austin, on Saturday night in San Diego. Drive summary: Three plays, eight yards, 50 seconds. That the Cowboys starting offense found paydirt, finally, is a good thing; but, in a game that saw Dallas struggle to string together any substantial drive, this will go only so far in assuaging any worry on the part of fans.
The pessimist no doubt, would point out that, after a season that saw Dallas struggle mightily in red zone situations, they were an unsuccessful play away from wasting a first-and-goal from the eight-yard-line. But Williams, for now, is no pessimist; he’s an optimist, and one that isn’t concerned at all about the Dallas offense.
"I mean, you want to do it every time, but when you really want to do it is Sunday night," Williams said, per ESPNDallas.com. "No concern at all. It’s the preseason.
"We’re working on stuff. We’re not game-planning for anybody. We’re out there trying to do this and do that. Coaches are evaluating players, putting players in situations that they want to see them in. It’s a game, but it’s not really a game."
