    I love having Terrence Williams as our number 2. However, this year is a big year for him in my opinion. I feel like this needs to be a big year if not his best year to date of his nfl career. I would like to know if this is the feeling of the front office and is T.W. aware of the expectations we fans will have of him in 2016 giving Romo is under center. If Romo is not he will need to help these backup QB’s a little more. One more thing, he needs to really work on catching the hard to catch contested catches with more consistency. I wander what the buzz is on these areas? Go Cowboys!! Get Boss and Zeke Elliott.
