Dallas A Dream Turned Nightmare, For Williams



    Cowboys' receiver Roy Williams, who spent much of his first two seasons in Dallas on the defensive, changed his tune noticeably late last season, speaking candidly about the disappointment that's marked his time in North Texas thus far. We all know, and have known, that Williams has been a bust since coming over during the 2008 season.

    But Williams categorizes his career thus far with Dallas in even more colorful terms-- not as an unfortunate development, but a "nightmare" from which he cannot awake.

    "It’s been a nightmare,” Williams told Yahoo! Sports. “That’s the truth. I’m not going to hide from it. I understand the business. … I thought this was going to be a dream. It’s been a nightmare.”

    It sure sounds like a brand new Roy Williams, but a bust with a sense of accountability, as fans won't hesitate to tell you, is still a bust. Now, Williams understands that the onus is on him to turn the proverbial corner in Dallas and start producing like the receiver for which Jerry so controversially paid.

    Williams and agent, Ben Dogra, recently met to discuss the Odessa native's somewhat questionable future with the team.

    “We talked about having a plan,” Williams said. “What am I going to do? How am I going to turn this whole thing around? … What’s happened here, it’s on me to figure it out.

    "It’s on me to fix it.”
