Newman tries to clarify comments

Cowboys cornerback Terence Newman was swarmed by the media today at his locker and everyone wanted to know about his comments on safety Roy Williams. He didn't back down from his comments, but he thought his words were taken out of context. Here's what Newman said Sunday on Channel 4....

''I think he just sometimes gets kind of a deer-in-the-headlights type of reaction to some plays. Not everybody is going to have a perfect season. He had a bad season last year as far as coverage.''

Today, Newman said...

''I think every DB in the league has looked like a deer-in-the-headlights at times. It wasn't like during the whole season last year Roy was looking like a deer-in-the-headlights -- I said at times. Which it happens. I stick behind it. It was not like it was something bad.''

Newman did say a lot of good things about Roy, but the fact remains he bashed him. That's a big deal on an team when a player crosses over and comments about a player having a bad year in coverage.
