Dooms, I think you are exactly right with this analysis. If the Cowboys maintain a legitimate deep threat then this approach is likely to work. It does require you to take some shots down the field.
This approach/scheme is the crux of the argument coming from some folks about the WR position. One of the reasons Moss adds such a dimension is that deep threat that can not be ignored. Terry Glenn is good and adds this sort of dimension when he is healthy. I think we have a fairly good receiving corps but it lacks legitimate depth unless the youngsters come on strong. We'll see what happens.
My last point is to ask whether or not Parcells is setting up for more of a run first type of offense that will limit the number of throws Bledsoe will make? Our problems last year made this approach impossible but this year seems more promising. Run first, pass first, balance....what will it be?
