    It's funny Jerrah wouldn't pay Romo after 1 good season.

    Refresh my memory. Romo came in towards the end of the season and did quite well. I though he was paid after the first full season. It's been a while so I could be wrong, and I'm not motivated to do the research now.

    Miles Austin - 1200 rec yards this season


    Over or under?

    The sad thing is, if he ends up with 1000 yards it will be because 'Dez Bryant stole his receptions' or 'Roy Williams finally found his game again'. Or maybe Witten has a great season compared to last year.

    There is a very good chance it will happen. Williams has already changed some of his work ethics, and there has been some flashes of a more committed receiver seen during preseason. It can't be a good feeling for a rookie to come in show more commitment than a veteran just getting by.

    Then of course if he doesn't, see ya!

    I thought Williams was the only Cowboy receiver to show up for the preseason. He dropped a couple, but he was using his size very well.

    I thought.

    He did show up, and that was my point. The "new and improved" Roy Williams. It appears he is becoming more accountable in contributing to the team's success. It isn't fun cheering for a guy just because he didn't drop yet another pass.

    He's got to get better. This will be his last year with them otherwise. Of course with the labor issues after this year who knows anyway?
