Kevin Williams > Fred Evans


Where did you find the 'official gamebook'? I remember Felton was suspended that game, but I'm not sure which to give the start to.

I think you're right on the Allen/Griffin one, I think Allen was the nickel corner and Griffin was starting, but I didn't have confirmation.

I'm pretty confident that Williams was starting in both 2011 and 2013 and Guion and Evans were just rotational players at that point.

I know you can find many gamebooks on NFL.com, if you go to the score page for the game, and click "Game Info", there will be a link to the gamebook if it is available. You can also find gamebooks in some team's media area, provided they aren't blocked with credential requirements. Dallas' media site, for instance, has gamebooks and media guides dating back all the way to 1960.

I PM'd you the PDFs I have. Allen was listed as not active, and same for Williams, either listed as not active or not listed at all. I think Williams was suspended that first game of 2011, dont know about 2013.

I just found some of the gamebooks online before you sent me them. I didn't know these resources existed - I love some good packets of information like this. Thanks for sending me these gamebooks.

Yup, Williams was suspended at the beginning of 2011. And I just remembered, Williams was injured in the preseason of 2013 due to an incredibly dirty chop block and missed Week 1.
