While the Dallas Cowboys played good enough to win on Sunday, there were moments where they stalled out and Tony Romo threw one interception. Much of that lies on the shoulders of rookie wide receiver Terrance Williams, and head coach Jason Garrett told ESPN on Sept. 11 that it might be time to re-evaluate who their third wide receiver is.
Coming out of the preseason, the fact of the matter is that Dwayne Harris was outplaying Williams most of the time, and after Harris was named the Special Teams Player of the Week for the NFC, there is a good chance that Harris might be making a case for his placement in the Cowboys receiver’s pecking order.
The reason that Tony Romo threw an interception in the New York Giants fame was because Williams ran the wrong route. He also dropped a key pass and only finished the game with two receptions for 32 yards.
With Dez Bryant shut down the entire game, Miles Austin exploded for ten receptions, while Jason Witten and DeMarco Murray both pulled in eight. Williams did not provide the kind of production Dallas needs from their third receiver position, and it might be time to give Harris the chance.
Garrett said that Harris will play a lot more because they like what he brings to the team. While Williams is the new draft pick, if he doesn’t pick up his game soon, Harris is the man that Dallas will find themselves turning to.
