Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams said last week that he’s no T.O., claiming that his complaints about not getting balls thrown his way weren’t a sign that he was going to divide the locker room the way Terrell Owens did.
But Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin doesn’t have to say he’s no T.O., because he has shown that he’s no T.O.
Austin has become the No. 1 receiver in Dallas by the merits of his play, not his contract, but after a game Sunday in which Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo often looked to other receivers, Austin said he wasn’t angry about not getting more balls thrown his way.
“Well, there’s times when I think I’m open, and I wish I’d get the ball,” Austin told Peter King of SI.com. “But I’m not Tony. And I have no idea what he’s going through back there. Usually he’s got some 300-pound guy back there chasing him, trying to rip his head off. So no, I don’t get too upset by that. Right now, we’ve got a good thing going. Guys are making plays when they’re called.”
Austin is a rare breed: A big-play receiver who doesn’t complain when the passes don’t go his way.
