Scott Knudsen of ranchreport.com gives a list of things us Cowboy fans should be thankful for during the Thanksgiving holiday. The number one thing to be thankful for of course is Parcells' decision to finally go with Tony Romo and bench Bledsoe, but right after that he tells us we should be very thankful to have Roy Williams playing for our team. I for one couldn't agree more. A lot of fans think he is overrated, but that is just ridiculous. Sure, he isn't the best coverage guy in the league, even though he does have 5 INT's this season. However, he's a big time playmaker who can change the course of a game with his devastating hits. I personally believe there isn't another player in the league that wideouts fear more patroling NFL secondaries and that type of intimidation gives our defense an edge that many in the league simply do not have.
Roy, El Martillo (Hammer), Williams can individually set the tone for an entire contest with one of his patented explosive collisions. No one in the League has the ability to produce so much energy in a very condensed space. He only needs a couple of steps to deliver a full-impact blow. Many have fallen subject to his "sit down, my Brother" shoulder, and many more will find themselves in his destructive wake in the games and years to come. For the benefit of all, it's hoped this former first round selection, who absolutely salivated at the notion of becoming a Dallas Cowboy, plays for one team, and one team only. He may not be the most vocal, but his ferociousness speaks volumes.
