"We had some tough times, some tough drives and he could have went into the tank," Williams said. "If he goes into the tank, this whole offense is going into the tank. He stood in there, held his head high, even though we had all the penalties and we were punting every series it felt like. He stayed in there and led this team down the football field and I really appreciate that out of a guy like that."
"That's what I think a leader is," Williams continued. " I could care less about guys who are rah-rah all day long," Williams said. "To me, it's like shut-up. You're getting on my nerves with all the rah-rah stuff. It's show me on the football field. He doesn't say anything. He doesn't have to say anything. All his stuff is on the football field. He is America's Team's quarterback. Whatever he does, people are going to love it or going to hate it. When we win, they love it. Nobody understands the small things that he did in the game, and that's why I told him I appreciated it."
His eight catches for 179 and one touchdowns have only reinforced critics who claimed he didn't have the making of a No. 1 receiver.
"I do not know what my role is. I'm just trying to help this team win, whether it's catching the ball, whether it's blocking downfield, whether it's whatever. I'm just trying to win. Whatever the game is calling for at that point and time," Williams said. "My role is to, like I say, is to make plays whether it's in the run or pass game I'm guessing. I'm not like give-me-the-ball-every-play type of guy. I'm a go-with-the-flow guy because I just want to win. I was [mad] after the New York game because I had one catch. But if he would have missed that field goal, I wouldn't have been [mad] because we would have won. That's just the type of guy I am, and I hope you can understand that."
But rather than focus on personal stuff Williams said his priorities are to do whatever it takes to help the Cowboys win, which is why he has no problem accepting his current uncertain situation as long as they continue to win.
"I'm just a blocker, a catcher and runner and just trying to do all of them in 60 minutes of play. I just run to my spot and catch the ball. That's what I feel my role is right now, blocking down field or catching the ball when it comes my way. I don't get very many opportunities, but when I get the opportunities, I have to make the best of them. That's the way I approach it. As long as we keep racking up wins, we're good."
