    Pat McQuistan is a very tall and athletic lineman. He's lean.

    When standing next to short sumo guard, Montrae Holland, Pat looked to be 6 inches taller despite being listed as only 4 inches taller (than Holland) on the roster.

    In typical fashion, the announcers' were "doubting" whether Pat McQuistan and Doug Free could perform if they were thrust into action because of injured starters. I don't really have an opinion on Doug Free right now, but I think that big Pat McQuistan would perform well.

    Jerry Jones [​IMG]looks to have made a big mistake when he hada giant big screen placed insufficiently high above the field in his new corporate palace. Punters were hitting it regularly during pregame practice and Craig Hentrich of the Titans hit it during the game. Jeff Fisher had to throw a challenge flag because the refs were busy watching other things and none saw Hentrich's punt hit the $40 million screen.

    Jones stubbornly refuses to admit he made a mistake with its placement. The way the rule stands now, every punt that hits the big screen will have to be a do-over. Will the DWFs -- who already sit through about 30 minutes of commercials every hour along with endless delays for motion penalties, replay challenges, black players who dramatically turn minor injuries into Academy Award performancesfeigning near death experiences, and other stoppages -- put up with another one during Cowboys home games? Of course, but my guess is that the league will force Jones to do something about it.

    Not only that Don the prices at the new stadium are ridiculous. I mentioned this in another thread but parking is $70 a game.

    Roy Williams is yet another first class NFL bonehead. He's still full of excuses for his non-performance. He and Tony Romo somehow still can't "get on the same page," yet Romo has had no problem being on the "same page" with Jason Witten, Miles Austin, and even Terrell Owens when he was there. Williams is another first round pick who is still treated by the media as a star or potential star even as he continues to grossly underperform in his sixth season in the league.

    Williams says he, Romo not connecting


    IRVING, Texas -- Roy Williams remains the Dallas Cowboys' No. 1 receiver, at least in his mind.
    After putting in a lot of extra offseason work with quarterback Tony Romo, Williams is stunned they haven't made more progress.


    "It's just not even close," Williams said. "It's not even funny. Not even close."


    Williams does not believe his poor production accurately portrays his performance.


    "I'm the No. 1 receiver," Williams said. "But things are just going No. 2's way."

    The No. 2 is Miles Austin, who has produced like a Pro Bowler since moving into the starting lineup. Austin has set an NFL record with 482 yards in his first three starts, scoring on five of his 21 receptions during that span.


    Compare that to Williams' statistics in 16 games since arriving from Detroit in a blockbuster deal: 33 catches, 447 yards and three touchdowns.


    Considering those numbers, how could Williams possibly still see himself as the Cowboys' No. 1 receiver?


    "He gets the ball thrown correctly his way," Williams said of Austin. "I'm stretching and falling and doing everything. Everybody [else] who's been here's balls are there. Our footballs [from Romo to Williams] are everywhere right now."


    Williams has caught only 14 of 37 passes thrown his way this season. Only four receivers in the league who have been targeted at least 25 times have caught a lower percentage of passes aimed at them.


    Williams stressed that he's pleased that the Cowboys are winning, but he's frustrated that he hasn't been more effective. He isn't asking for more opportunities. He just wants to be put in better position to make plays -- which means getting on the same page with Romo.


    "We're going to be fine there," Romo said after Sunday's win over the Seattle Seahawks. "I know what Roy's doing. It's just a matter of going back and looking the tape and seeing what we have to do better. But it's just part of growing with a receiver."

    "Boy" Williams is a grossly overrated, caste-pushed "afflete". He couldn't cut the mustard in Detroit, and isn't getting it done in the Big D either. The allusions (above) to Romo's success with other targets further prove Williams' ineptitude.

    TNB when something doesn't got a blacks way.  He now has to blame the white quarterback.  This quote absolutely kills me, "He gets the ball thrown correctly his way," reffering to Miles Austin  If Miles Austin wasn't half black Williams could even play the race card here.  He could say something like "He's not throwing me the ball correctly because I'm black."

    Moronic prima donna Roy Williams still spouting off and making excuses. What's worse is that the media promotesthis"news"by running it as a straight news article rather than in the comics section. One would think just the opposite would be happening -- that the receiver would be concentrating as hard as he can every play so that when a pass does come his way he's sure not to drop it. But not in the bizarro world of artificially engineered black supremacy in sports.

    Cowboys' Williams says lack of passes affecting his play

    Wade Phillips claims wide receiver Roy Williams role has not changed despite his disappointing season, the decline in passes in his direction and the increase in snaps for backup receivers Sam Hurd and Kevin Ogletree in his place.


    "He's a starter for us," Phillips said. "We use a lot of different players in a lot of different packages we've done that all along and we will continue to do that."


    Asked if Williams was still a big part of the passing game, Phillips said, "Yes. He ran some good routes and was open during the game on Sunday it just didn't end up going in his direction."


    Could the reason quarterback Tony Romo didn't attempt a pass to a wide open Williams be attributed to a lack of trust?


    "I'm not going there with that," Phillips said. "I'm not going to say that. Why would I say that? Gee."


    While Phillips refused to expand on the receiver the Cowboys traded away three draft picks to Detroit to get, Williams kept it real. He said he is not used to be ignored by the quarterback. It's affected his play and led to some of his drops.


    "That's not how it's always been the last 22 years of my life," Williams said. "I just have to be ready when it comes. Most of the time I'm like I get lulled to sleep, like it's not coming, it's not coming. Then when it comes it surprises me. I have to have the mindset that it's coming to me every time. "


    Still Williams, whose $9 million annual salary makes his him the team's third-highest paid player in 2009, said he is still playing hard. And even though it hasn't been a great season for him personally, he is happy to be part of a winning team for the first time in his NFL career.


    "Yeah, it's tough, but at the same time, this is what's working for the Dallas Cowboys," Williams said. "It's not about me, by no means. It's about the team. So I'm just going with the flow. It's tough to be out there for 10, 11 plays and we go down there to score and all I did was block for someone or get someone open. But, at the same time, that's fun and it means we are winning the ball game. It is what it is. And I've said that since training camp. I would trade anything in the world besides my family and my kids for a win. I could easily be at home right now, coming from Detroit. I could be 2-14 but instead I'm 11-5, East champion, it's a great feeling."

    Blacks can do absolutely no harm in this world. There was an article today in my local paper. It should be up tommorow so I'll post a link to it. The article mentioned what great people NBA players are and Gilbert Arenas is just a bad apple. I was sick to my stomach.

    Williams sounds like he has a real ED problem! [​IMG]
