Terrance Williams to Cowboys Fans: ‘If You Think You Can Do My Job, Come Take It’
On Sunday, NFC East rivals Dallas Cowboys & New York Giants faced off at AT&T Stadium and the game went right down to the wire, mired in controversy.
Down by 1 and needing more yards to put their kicker in field goal position, Dak Prescott got the ball quickly to wide receiver Terrance Williams, but instead of running out of bounds, Williams turned and tried to get more yardage. It failed miserably as the Cowboys simply ran out of time.
A few days have passed and Williams is over it, but according to him, Cowboys fans are still giving him hell about it on social media.
“Well since I’ve been here (the fans have) been doing this,” Williams told Kate Hairopoulos of Dallas Morning News after Wednesday’s practice. “So if you drop a pass, they say you can’t catch. If you do something wrong, they’ll blame you. It just comes with the job. I just learn to block people out. Their opinions don’t matter to me. They’re not here. They don’t know what kind of person I am, they don’t know how hard I work.”
The 4th year receiver is trying his best to block out the negativity, but he also has a message for the people who think they can do a better job than him.
“It’s just one of those things, if they want to blame me, that’s fine,” said Williams. “At the end of the day I’m still here, I’m still doing my job, and if you feel like you can come take it, come take it.”
