Several stories around the web discussing the relationship between Tony Romo and Roy Williams are popping up. I’m loving their attitudes. They have both been putting a lot of time in and working hard together for months.
Yes, there is a lot of pressure on Roy Williams this season, but the same goes for Tony Romo. They both seem eager to step up their game and do what is expected and more.
An article at Yahoo Sportstalks about Romo to Williams. Here are some quotes from them:
“The pressure’s on me,” Williams said. “The expectations are big. But that’s fine. That’s how I want them to be.”
“Oh, we’re close. There’s still little things, still routes,” Romo said. “It’s not just about running a route on air. It’s about different coverages you’re going to see and how you’re going to come out of your break. … It’s our first full season. Once you see it from all of them, it’s easier the next go-around.”
“When things happen the way they’re supposed to happen, I’m just going to have a smile on my face,” Williams said. “The only people that know I can do it is my family. They can’t wait either.”
“Just catch the ball when he throws it to me,” Williams said. “And butter him up, bring him some food, just let him borrow some money if he needs some. Just be his best friend. … Put my arm around his neck and hug him and tell him that his girlfriend looks pretty good and go from there.”
Todd Archer of the Dallas Morning News has an article entitled, “Dallas Cowboys’ Romo tackling flaws head on“. Here’s a taste of it:
Romo said he would take a more “active approach” as a leader, beginning with his early March workouts with wide receiver Roy Williams. Slowly, both players have seen the fruits of that work pay off during the organized team activities through Monday, the first day of a three-day minicamp.
Last but not least, a video clip from ESPN.com featuring Roy, Wade, Witten and more:
I don’t think we have even come close to seeing what Roy Williams can bring to this team. Not even offseason camps or even preseason games are going to show us what he is capable of. I am ready to see him in full action, playing for blood as the Dallas Cowboys #1 receiver. Roy is going to prove his worth and show you exactly why Jerry Jones gave up so much to get him on this team.
We have seen what Tony Romo can do. The question will be can he repeat what he has done in the past, especially in 2007, and even go beyond that? We will just have to wait and see and hope he blows our minds away!
Hey, that’s why they play the games, right?
I realize Romo and Roy have doubters all over the place. But I can honestly tell you I am not one of them. Unless they give me reason to believe otherwise, both #9 and #11 have 100% of my support.
