Jones hasn't lost confidence in Williams


IRVING -- Cowboys owner Jerry Jones continues to be in denial about Roy Williams' poor play at wide receiver. On Wednesday, Williams admitted that he needed to make more plays if he wanted to remain in the lineup.

"You know I have to get the confidence of my quarterback, because I didn't get a look after the first half," Williams said. "I didn't get a look in the second half. That's telling me that my quarterback has lost confidence in me, and so has the coordinator as far as calling plays for me.

"That's not on them. I don't blame them. I blame myself. I've got to get my crap together and try to help this team win some games in the playoffs."

It's actually a good sign that Williams is taking some responsibility for his lack of productivity. Earlier in the season, he blamed Tony Romo for his failures and he made light of his drops following the win at New Orleans. Romo has responded by not looking his way as much. Jones, though, hasn't lost confidence in the wide receiver that he traded first-, third- and sixth-round draft choices for last season.

"I don't believe that is the case at all," Jones said. "On a personal basis and on a professional basis, I have not [lost confidence in Williams]. I know the kinds of plays he is capable of making and can make. I think we will see those as we go into Philadelphia and the playoffs. So I feel very good that he is on our team and out there with a chance to make plays."
