Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams was a productive player for the first month of the season, but he's faded since his old pal from Detroit, Jon Kitna, took over as the starting quarterback. On Thursday, Williams took a bit of a jab at interim coach/offensive coordinator Jason Garrett.
"I was the go-to guy in Detroit," said Williams per Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com. "Coordinators can make who they want to make the star."
It's another lame comment from a guy who's worn out his expensive welcome in Dallas. Kitna had some success with Williams in Detroit, so you'd think the two of them might click with the Cowboys. But Kitna hasn't seem interested in going to Williams this season. I don't think the interim coach and the starting quarterback have a lot of faith in Williams after watching him run questionable routes and short-arm passes.
And I don't think Garrett's particularly interested in making anyone a star as much as he is winning games. Right now, Williams isn't a player who can help Garrett become the permanent coach, so he's been phased out of the offense.
Makes sense to me.
