If history is any indication, we should not get too excited about WR Roy Williams' breakout game in Week Three, when he caught five passes for 117 yards with two TDs. Just last season, Williams' two biggest yardage totals (86 yards in Week One, 105 yards in Week 10) were followed by 18- and zero-yard games the following weeks. In fact, Williams has a history of such inconsistency, posting back-to-back 100-yard contests only twice in his career despite starting 77 games. But that hasn't stopped Williams from saying this week that he's "still a Pro Bowler" and that he never lost confidence despite an underachieving first season and a half in Dallas. The thinking is that the emergence of Dez Bryant and the fine start of Miles Austin both will be deterrents to Williams being a week-to-week producer. But there will be days when Bryant struggles and Austin is the focus of opposing defense. On those days, Williams must be ready for the challenge — and not get caught up in the idea that he's not being respected enough.
