Williams leaves trash talk to Landry

IRVING, Texas -- Receiver Roy Williams has taken the high road since Washington Redskins safety LaRon Landry called him out for being "scared" last month.

On Tuesday, Williams referred to Landry as a "Pro Bowl player" who he'd love to have on his team.

If Williams truly believes that, he ought to have his Pro Bowl voting privileges revoked. Landry has been terrible this season.

Shaun Suisham was released after the Redskins' loss to the New Orleans Saints, but Landry was just as much at fault for letting the Saints come from behind. He got burned twice for touchdowns on double moves, including one with 1:19 remaining that forced overtime.

That's the most glaring example of poor performance by the sixth overall pick in the 2007 draft. It's far from the only one. Landry has consistently had problems defending double moves and making tackles in the open field, which are two pretty important duties for a safety.

Perhaps Landry ought to worry more about himself instead of criticizing another underachieving high first-round pick.
