Re: Roy Williams Suspended 1 Game For Horse Collar

Funny how after the tackle RW was SHOCKED to see he was being flagged. I guess he thought because he tapped the upper arm/shoulder first it was ok to grab the collar however no matter where you grab first on the body or jersy if you pull someone down backwards like that has proven to cause injury...thus the rule.
Looking at the Hamlin hit I would venture to say he did not get the flag because he turned and tried to hit with the shoulder first. As you listen to the announcers they spell it out for you. You can't hit a WR like that while in the air unprotected. I'm betting a fine will come of it. Why no penalty cause the Refs were to busy not trying to trip over the EAGLES Kicker on the sideline. lol.

Roy has always been a dirty player.. Back to his early years he's either been going at people's knees or horsecollaring people.. He got what he deserves..

Re: Roy Williams Suspended 1 Game For Horse Collar

I only wish the league would have taken their time to really look at the film. You know and try to decide what was a good punishment. As well as fair. I don't know maybe taken atleast a week to think about it then decide that maybe one game or two would be appropriate. lol.

It's not fair that this guy can knock someone out of the season for an illegal hit that he does again and again. The NFL needs to protect its players and if he does it again, and I'd be surprised if he didn't, I think that would warrant a severe suspension.

It's possible Williams may try to appeal and push the suspension back to Week 17. But Williams is awful in pass coverage, and Cooley can totally abuse him. So I kind of hope he does play against us in week 17.

It's a dirty tackle from a horribly overrated player.

The fact that he argued the call goes to show you he is not only dirty but stupid as well.

Re: Roy Williams Suspended 1 Game For Horse Collar

Exactly what I thought. He knocks people out for much more than just one game. The punishment should fit the crime.

It's interesting that he's the only player in the league who does it consistently.

Yeah that's cool. Illegal helmet-to-helmet hit which is likely to break BOTH guys necks, and it looks like Hamlin was on the ground longer than Schobel.

Definitely a cool hit.

Re: Roy Williams Suspended 1 Game For Horse Collar

For the record, the suspension was warranted and Williams has nothing to complain about. He deserved that suspension 100%.

But that suspension is going to leave Dallas "thin" at the safety position for this Saturdays game at Carolina. Pat Watkins suffered a nasty sprain this week and he and Williams will be out for the Panthers game.

The irony is that the Cowboys secondary will most likely be facing off against Matt Moore, who will probably start for the Panthers. Matt Moore was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent by Dallas and then released by Dallas at training camp this year.

"Thin"?! Yeah, I'm real sorry you've lost so many important players. You wanna see thin, check out our depth chart right now.

On a slightly different note, it would be kind of nice if Roy Williams could horsecollar Tony Romo, knock Romo out for the season and then Williams would get suspended until 2008. Williams is about stupid enough that he might do it, too.

If only...
