My Response to Mickey's article on Roy

Promoted from FanPosts by Grizz (with a few minor edits).

Bravo, Mickey! Bravo! Your article on Roy Williams is brilliant in the way that you directly address the relationship between the player and the fans. Even with the Romo/Simpson saga, and the Pac-Man trade concerns, and the fear of a disgruntled Greg Ellis, and the Felix vs. Rashard disagreements, and the December/Playoffs slumps, the most passionate topic in Dallas Cowboys fandom continues to accelerate around the what-to-do-with-Roy-Williams debate. Move him to linebacker. No! Take him off 3rd downs. You gotta! Trade him. Not likely! Cut him. Cap $pace! Let him resurrect with Campo. Maybe! Let him change numbers. Sure!

Cowboys fans are having a hard time swallowing the fact that what happened here with Julius Jones seems to be happening with Roy, just on the other side of the ball. Instincts, aggressiveness, passion--all the characteristics that made Cowboys fans "ooh" and "ahh" over their team's former #1 pick--have diminished.

Where is he? Why is he a shell of his former self? Do Tai Streets and Todd Pinkston have to be on the Cowboys schedule for Roy to "show up"? Was he offended the league ruled against his "horse collaring"?

I don't know! I don't know! I don't know! Nobody does! It's frustrating, so I'm sure that's why you (and Roy) hear so much from the fans about his play. We simply don't know what to expect from him. And that's scary.

Do you remember that Monday Night game a couple years back when Dallas was up 13 to 0, and the 'Skins came back with a coupla deep balls to Santana Moss in the 4th quarter to win 14 to 13? That's when it all began for me. That's when my confidence in my favorite Dallas Cowboy began to die. Maybe, his did too.

Anyways, Mickey, thanks for the article. It would be great if Roy can be pumped up by the fans the same way Hulk Hogan was by his Hulkamaniacs. But after hearing Roy's comments about the fans, and just reading the distaste for his play from the various Cowboys' bloggers, I doubt there's anything else the fans can do, but cringe when that deep ball is in the air on his side of the field.
