Hall of Fame former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin said this month that he thinks his old team is playing “10 on 11” when receiver Roy Williams is on the field. Williams is coming off his best game as a Cowboy, and he says he’s still thinking about those comments to get himself fired up.
“Michael Irvin picked me up a little bit with the 10-on-11 comment,” Williams said on KILT in Houston, via SportsRadioInterviews.com. “That really ticked me off and that’s taken me to another level. My thing is just be consistent, don’t worry about what everybody else says and just do my job.”
Williams says he’s not, however, motivated by the Cowboys’ decision to use a first-round draft pick on another receiver, Dez Bryant. And Williams thinks he thinks it’s a good thing if people are talking about Bryant and not about him.
“Just try to make a play,” Williams said. “That’s what I’ve been trying to do the first three weeks and just be consistent. I’ve been under the radar and nobody’s talked about me and I still want that. Don’t talk about me, just talk about everybody else.”
