Roy Williams’ Injury: Blessing or Barrier?
Like it or not, the Cowboys will miss this guy. Won't they?
Other than Scott, this corner of the blogdom is full of Roy Williams bashers. I assume his fractured forearm will be met with an unprecedented joy considering it means the absence of a Pro Bowl* player for about a month.
The Cowboys say they will simply plug in Patrick Watkins at strong safety. But here’s my question:
Why don’t they slide Anthony Henry to safety alongside Ken Hamlin and allow Pacman Jones and Terence Newman to play cornerback? That way you get your best four defensive backs on the field the majority of the game.
