No, your just spinning this based upon your blind defense of Garrett. if you accept what Sturm says, than quite frankly your utter defense of Garrett in light of what Garrett bashers have been saying goes bye-bye. But keep digging a grave for yourself based upon 'perception' of what Dez was doing. The JG homers prior to this was telling us about how we are a 'vertical' offense and stretch the field with out offense, because that is ther nature of the offense, and all we need are people to 'execute'.
Now, all of the sudden, the coaches have been shortening routes be 'design' for all this time...
This is the first PHI game...@PHI (Nov 11)
A drag route to Bryant, who ran a handful of short routes in the previous qtrs prior to catching this one, right before he caught the TD on the 9 route against DRC.
Sturm's article is written on Dec 2....and he's saying that the Cowboys went to shorter routes all of sudden in the Dec 2 game.
Hmmm Nov 11 < Dec 2....let me think about this for a second....
Oh that's right...like I said the Cowboys were already doing this with Bryant before that Dec 2 game.
"It's little bit like the description of pornography from years back. It's hard to define it. But you know what it is at the end of it. It's hard to define it. I think you know who is more physical. Often times you see that in the fourth quarter. A lot of time the team on the other side feels it. We pride ourselves on being a physical football team. It's important to us. It's an important time of the year to lay that foundation." - Coach Garrett
