Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

The Cowboys are 4-2, and just added another offensive threat to a very potent offense. Between TO, Williams, Witten, Crayton and Austin, you can now have 5 guys on the field at the same time that will beat you. This is only going to open things up for TO by adding Williams to the lineup. Of course he's ecstatic...teams will not be able to double team TO as effectively because you'll be leaving a legit #1/#2 receiver one on one. While Crayton is a good receiver, he's not Roy Williams. This is only going to create huge mis-matches down the line.

However, if I'm TO, I'm looking at the writing on the wall...here's a guy who's a legit #1 that could possibly overtake him if TO gets way too big for his britches. This is essentially Jerry Jones' insurance policy if TO turns like he did in San Fran and Philly. And while Roy Williams may not be a Larry Fitzgerald or a Santana Moss, he's still good for 61/912/7 year to year (4 year average with Detroit as their #1 with Joey Harrington, Jeff Garcia and Jon Kitna throwing to him).

Value wise, their defense may be strugging, but they are still good enough to keep them in games. Essentially they decided that bolstering their offense and gunslinging with teams was a better fit. We'll see how much value it is at the end of the year...

OR, to steal it from Doc.
No killer DB's available. Add Roy, and now when Springs is giving TO a little........chin music at the line, Roy is where?

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

Well that's a shame because you wanted to talk about it a lot the week leading up to the game.

While we are Cowboy bashing, why not this.

Would you say that experience was similar to the game for her?

A lot of hype and build-up for a GIGANTIC let down?

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

Just to continue the theme of Cowboys bashing here. I found this on another board.

On a side note; listening to the herd this morning Colin asked "How do you buy gold?" an e-mail came in "Colin, first you go buy 3 tons of horse crap. Then you go and buy some gold, liquify it and pour it evenly over the horse crap so that it's nice 'n shiny, stank and soft in the middle. Then name it the Dallas Cowboys."

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

NEWSFLASH!.... Terrell Owens has talked Jerry Jones into playing newly acquired receiver Roy Williams at cornerback until Pacman comes back!

Then when the deal was finalized, reporters spoke with Roy Williams and he said the first call he got was from TO. So we will see I guess.

But as far as the deal goes it was not really all that bad. Yeah 3 draft picks sounds like a lot. But believe it or not yesterday morning when the Cowboys were getting their breakfast, they had 10 total draft picks for the 2009 draft.

After the trade was done at the end of the day, Dallas had nine draft picks for the 2009 draft. They only gave up one draft pick.

Because of Pacman's suspension, the Cowboys received the Titans 5th round pick. That was s stipulation of the trade.

Dallas already had two-3rd round picks (Cleveland) and two-6th round picks (Miami, Jason Fergeson trade).

So Dallas sends their first, third and 6th rounder for Williams. Chances are the 3rd and 6th round picks from Cleveland and Miami are going to be higher anyway.

And Dallas got a 7th rounder from Detroit.
The whole TO being good-natured and "ecstatic" about the trade thing? I'll believe it when I see it long term.

I realize that the Cowboys had draft picks to burn. But they likely could have gotten R. Williams cheaper in the off-season, especially since Millen is gone from the Lions front office. Then the rest of their draft picks would go farther.

As well, I grant that R. Williams will add nice marginal upside to the Cowboys offense immediately. I don't grant that this margin will be #1, #3, and #6 draft picks good. It will be hard to get Williams enough balls to both warrant the price and still be left with enough snaps to have a viable running game.

Also, Williams is a bit of a gamble. Will he really be a re-energized Pro Bowler, or will he be the childish loafing whiner he's been the last couple of seasons?

The longer I think about this, this smacks of the Joey Galloway trade.

Re: Breaking News Roy Williams Traded to Dallas

Lets see...first game together with T.O....Williams 0 catches...T.O. 2 catches 31 yards. A number 1 a 3 and a 6..... Yeah, that sounds like a great deal.

The scary thing is he could probably cover better than the other R. Williams.
