    What a ducking fumbass.

    Fourth time he's been fined in two years for violating the horse-collar rule — a rule put in place specifically because of him.

    He's suspended one game without pay.

    So fresh there is no link up yet.

    If Royboi would learn to hit somebody with his shoulder instead of dragging them down, he might earn the bucks he's being paid. He can't cover. And now he can't tackle without breaking da rulz.

    wade phillips' defense of williams' tackling style is ridiculous:

    “To me, if you tackle a guy from behind like that and you’re not falling on his legs, you’re not hurting anybody,” Phillips said. “So what’s wrong with it? Now, if you’re falling on his legs, like he did before, then that’s one thing. But that’s the rule and we need to abide by it. He is just going to have to learn to do it different. He passed it up a couple times in that game.”

    Best part was he acted genuinely surprised when the ref threw the flag. Williams is the most overrated player in football.
     
  7. He has to tackle them from behind because he's always chasing somebody. They've already blown by him.

    Williams is easily the most overrated piece of cow dung in the NFL. Can't cover, can't tackle, and when he tackles, he breaks the rule that was put into place because of him. What a waste of space.

    Didn't he get nailed for this earlier this season?

    He has got to be the stupidest motherfucker ever to put on a helmet. Can't tackle, can't cover, shit, he couldn't track down Jessica Simpson wearing Romo's jersey on the field.

    How he gets by doing this in college and in the pros is beyond me.

    Why doesn't Williams just move to outside linebacker at this point?

    Good to hear that Ritalin Child won't get his leg broken by another brilliant play by Roy Williams. Now to get DeShaun to stop fumbling the ball ... or simply start DeAngelo Williams ...

    I love a horse-collar tackle.

    Yeah, it's illegal, and wrong, but it's fun to watch, ain't it?

    Tell me you didn't back the clip up and watch it again.........

    It's against the rules. Don't do it, kids.

    But I bet ESPN played it, feeding the ESPN blood lust.
