Did anyone notice that after his critical drop at the end of the first half against Washington last week, that Roy Williams wasn’t thrown to again in that game? Well Roy apparently did and decided to say a few things about it.
I suppose the simplest thing I can pass on to you would be this, “I blame myself.” Those are his words.
He also says that he knows he must get back to the fundamentals of being a wide receiver in this league. He says that he needs to look the ball in every time, and that he needs to catch the ball. According to him, he ranks in the top three in the league as far as hands – he admits that not being obvious at all. Even his own mother had to tell him that he is leading the league with 10 drops this year.
But something more than what he said caught my attention and hopefully will produce actual results. He says that he is going to catch 100 balls from the pitching machine after practice each day until he gets this fixed.
Maybe he’ll start acting like even a decent wide out after the work. But he has got to stop smiling after he screws up so royally, it doesn’t help any. Get mad and fix the problem. We’ll see.
I don’t particularly find it helpful that he said “I have to take my game to another level. It starts this Sunday,” to me that task started the day he got in Dallas, and definitely this past Monday after the game he had in Washington the night before. Something like that never waits until next week, and I hope his going back to the Juggs (pitching machine) is his way of doing that.
