DeAngelo Williams riles Cowboys fans

DeAngleo Williams said he wouldn’t consider playing for the Cowboys, one of four teams he has eliminated as a potential landing spot. Cowboys fans were quick to point out that the Cowboys wouldn’t consider Williams with Ezekiel Elliott, Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris on their roster.

I’m an ’80s baby, I was born in 1983, and the 49ers ruled the ’80s,” Williams explained, via ESPN’s Adam Schefter. “The Cowboys somewhat did something in the ’90s. I even refuse to give them that, as a Niners fan.”

But Williams didn’t stop there.

“The Cowboys, they win,” Williams said. “They just, they don’t ever show up during the playoffs, though. Like, they always disappear in the playoffs. I got a great depiction of the Cowboys fan base during the regular season last year, they were on cloud nine. You couldn’t tell them anything — anything — because they were going to win the [championship]. That’s all they said, like, fans just got extremely super annoying, and then the minute they lose, they either got cheated, somebody was hurt, like the excuses start flowing.

“It’s just amazing to me, just that fan base, just in general, they can’t handle defeat. I mean, still to this day, they say the Dez Bryant catch against the Green Bay Packers [in January 2015] was a catch.”

His comments riled Cowboys fans, who giddily pointed out on Twitter that Williams is 0-3 all time against the Cowboys, rushing for 128 yards on 23 carries. He was injured and unable to play last season when the Steelers lost to the Cowboys.

Of course, Williams could counter that the Cowboys haven’t even been to an NFC Championship Game since the 1995 season. Not that we’re trying to continue this war of words or anything.

    Yeah, well Williams is 34 – ancient for a running back in today’s NFL. He shouldn’t cross any team off his list. Be thankful is there is any interest.

    So he doesn’t like the Cowboys and is a Niners fan. He’s cool in my book.

  3. TheDPR says: Jul 12, 2017 4:12 PM

    He’s absolutely right about the Cowboys and their fans. Just because he’s older and out of work doesn’t make him wrong.

    Sounds like Dallas wasn’t interested in entertaining his shot at moonlighting on a 2017 squad.

    Wouldn’t know his name if he wasn’t splitting snaps 90% of his career

    What’d McGregor say? “Dance for me boy?” That was hilarious.

  6. dlb1982 says: Jul 12, 2017 4:19 PM

    it is probably unwise to limit the teams you can join at his age.

  7. danalt613 says: Jul 12, 2017 4:21 PM

    can’t imagine fans acting like fans. Thats just not right.

  8. thirstymofo says: Jul 12, 2017 4:31 PM

    I live in Dallas…and let me just say “yup”.

  9. chicagobtech says: Jul 12, 2017 4:34 PM

    Guy played for the Steelers. He should be able to recognize an obnoxious fan base.

  10. tjacks7 says: Jul 12, 2017 4:38 PM

    Wow, spot on. Funny thing is the same exact thing goes for Skins fans every blue moon when they’re decent.

  11. broo53 says: Jul 12, 2017 4:40 PM

    Yes, getting a chance to run behind the Cowboys OL is certainly not worth doing. What RB would ever want to regardless of age??

    “You couldn’t tell them anything — anything — because they were going to win the [championship]. That’s all they said, like, fans just got extremely super annoying”

    Agreed. But I know of a few ‘niner fans who are the same way…

    Deangelo should be worried about guilt by association if he were to play for Dallas

  14. suncawy says: Jul 12, 2017 4:52 PM

    There’s nothing like a 34 year old running back on his last legs trying to think like the Cowboys need him. Deangelo, can stay on the unemployment line of an overrated 34 year old running back.

  15. seattlerogueburner says: Jul 12, 2017 4:54 PM

    Washington, NY, or Philly…please sign him. This matchup would be money this season.

  16. beltwaytd says: Jul 12, 2017 4:57 PM

    He’s not wrong….

  17. amaf21 says: Jul 12, 2017 5:04 PM

    Well he’s right that’s for sure.

  18. jggallow01 says: Jul 12, 2017 5:21 PM

    Two words for Williams..

    Alvin Harper

  19. trefkennedy says: Jul 12, 2017 5:26 PM

    Coming from an unsigned free agent yea, lets put a lot of stock into what he said, #CowboysNation

  20. jggallow01 says: Jul 12, 2017 5:30 PM

    Love how Williams reluctantly admits the Cowboys were “ok” in the 90’s. LOL – Try 3 Superbowls

    The Cowboys beat the 49er’s in two straight NFC title games, and were close to three in a row, only to get screwed on a late non-PI call on Dion Sanders – who mugged Michael Irvin all game long. That still didnt stop Troy Aikman from setting an NFL passing record in that game.

    So yeah, the Cowboys were just sort of a flash in the pan in the 90’s….. LOL

  21. sprotsfan99 says: Jul 12, 2017 5:36 PM

    Cowboys fans have an unjustifiably high opinion of their team’s reputation. The team has only had two winning seasons out of the last seven. And 0 playoff wins in two attempts during that time. At least Williams can say he’s been to five playoff games in that same period. I don’t blame him for wanting to avoid a losing franchise, especially one with as little discipline as the Cowboys has.

  22. hyprcaffeinated says: Jul 12, 2017 5:54 PM

    Williams does not have the criminal history to draw interest from the Cowboys. He does have a good point about the fan base tho… always the excuses for a loss…

    If by a ‘catch’ you mean Bryant bobbled the ball, dropped the ball, and it hit the ground and that THAT is a catch, then, yeah, it was a catch !

  24. tylawspick6 says: Jul 12, 2017 6:14 PM

    all this loser does is run his mouth

    Sounds like Panther’s fans as well.

    He wants a flower in his hair and to live with all the gentle people.

    3 points.

    DeAngelo is 100% correct about the Cowboys…and at 34, he is still a formidable opponent. I would welcome him back to my favorite team in a heartbeat. He was a nice option for the Steelers. Lastly, he is a first class professional who does it correctly. I wish him only the best.
