Too bad Roy Williams was going to be a free agent after this season and they could have just signed him then

According to Jason Cole they signed him through 2013 as part of the trade. He's only 26. Get used to Williams being part of the Cowpuffs for years.

I think this is a good move for them. The real weakness of their offense was their #2-#5 WR's, none of whom could draw coverage from TO.

This is also bad for them. Despite the fact that they had previously stockpiled draft picks and so will still have a draft, they gave up half of a normal draft for just this one guy. And they have a bunch of needs on the defensive side of the ball. This move makes them look more like the Fouts Chargers - all offense and no defense - which can get you to the playoffs but won't win the big dance, where defense is required. And down the road they will face salary cap troubles.

He won't be up to speed in their offense until Thanksgiving or so.

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

So the Cowboys now have all these receivers, so what!! Detroit had Williams, the other Williams, Calvin Johnson and Furrey, running Martz's offense and we shut them down last year. The way to counter this move is to draft us another young CB next year or sign Asomougha.

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

From a Cowboys hating perspective I don't mind this move. While Williams is a solid second-tier receiver - who has occasionally shown flashes of greatness - they paid a prohibitive price to acquire him. For all the talk of Williams being a "long-term replacement" this is a move that screams desperation, and win now at any cost. Also, you are adding another proven ego to a team chock full of them, when what you really need is more hungry role-players. So in getting a solid receiving threat, they give up the chance to add valuable depth to their paper thin defense. They also alienate guys like Miles Austin who have been pretty solid. I havenít seen every Cowboys game but Iíve seen most of them, and it hasnít seemed to me like the receivers have been the problem so far.

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

well if they lose one Roy Williams they have another to take his place. One is just as useless as the next

I guess Dallas plan to out score everyone they need defensive help.

It will be very interesting to see how T.O. responds to this. Williams is a good receiver but this will probably cause more anguish for T.O. It looks like a move to take away from the bad press they've been getting. It should actually be a good move for T.O. if he would look at it unselfishly. Williams could open things up but somehow they'll screw it up.

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

I heard Creighton on Sirius say that he didn't understand this move, then he back tracked. But if he is saying this on a public forum, just think what TO is thinking (u don't love me anymore...)

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

1st, 3rd, and 6th??? For.....Roy???? That's a move that spells desperation.
JJ, line one is for you, It's Adam Archuleta. He's got sweet deal for you! I think T.O. will have to re=think his Christmas card list after this...........betrayal.

I'm sure he's ticked and I don't think his feelings will remain a secret at all.

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

With a decent #2 in Crayton and a very good #3 in Austin--I think this move was overkill for the Boys. Sam Hurd is also a good #2/3 even though he is hurt.

However, I think the Williams pickup is overall a good hedge against T.O.'s eventual decline in skills/age related injury/blowup...

Right. If there is one thing certain in this world, it's that T.O.'s feeling will NOT be kept secret!

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

Maybe........they are anticipating the unnavoidable? The TO meltdown, and are preparing to deal him?

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

Shit.

How the hell is any defense supposed to stop a tandem of T.O. and Roy Williams when you've got guys like Crayton, Austin and Witten still around?

We can mock it all we want, but I don't see how you can deny that this creates serious matchup problems for ANY defense.

Fortunately Romo and Felix Jones are out on the offensive side for a while, and hopefully Pacman has seen his last snap as a professional.
