I have a question, couldn't Garrett simplify the offense for Dez, I mean, find out what he does best and just use that?
That's just the thing. The offense has already been simplified. There are players all over the league that have the offense simplified for them. But there is a certain base level of knowledge you have to have. That is why they make incoming rookies take the Wonderlic, it determines your cognitive ability. If this means this, then that means what? Those are the types of questions. It's not how much do you KNOW, it's how much can you figure out from context and basic detection skills. Dez lacks those. In your offense, you HAVE to have site adjustments in case the defense doesn't call what you were expecting. Dez misses one or two a game, which is precisely why Romo is ignoring him. A WR HAS to be able to see what leverage the CB is playing with and use route stems to make the CB do what he wants him to do. I have not seen a single shred of evidence that he has improved his cognitive ability in even the slightest degree. He's been busting a site adjustment or 3 every game since I started keeping track. It's a damn shame, it really is.

How would rank our areas of need as we sit right now? I am thinking:
1a - interior OL
1b - pass rusher
2 - safety
3 - RB
4 - WR
thanks again for the great read!
1. Safety - We have got to get more production out of this position.
2. WR - And more specifically, we need a veteran, don't have time to wait on a rookie.
3. Interior OL - Both potential starters and depth
4. FB - Need to find a real FB. When was the last time we had a real hammer at FB? Does it really go ALLLL the way back to Moose?
5. OLB - Both a potential replacement for Spencer and more quality depth.

I though he may be injured from Bucs game and has been trying to play through it.
I think you pretty much have to resign him. They don't grow on trees you know? /end Parcells
Don't know what's wrong with him, not gonna speculate though I have some ideas. I just know that he needs to turn it around.
