The goal should be to run your offensive game plan. You shouldn't force passes into one player to feed that player. If the throws are there you take them, if the throws aren't there you find where they should go.
I don't know if those stats are true because I doubt we're 2nd in points but I don't have a problem with what the stats show. Stats always tell a different story. When you watch the games you see this team getting off to slow starts. You see them go on these scoring droughts. Its not a very good offense.
Why would I bother to share stats that aren't true? Everything is easy to check and verify. The Cowboys 230 points is the second most in the league. They average 28.8 pts per game, which is 4th in the league.
You've been sliced and diced in this thread right out of the gate... and now you want to talk about forcing Peterson with 8 in the box? Do you realize how awful that's turned out for the Vikings and how meaningless Peterson has been in games because they can't switch over to pass-first?
In the NFL defenses can take away certain plays and players...you have to be able to beat defenses a variety of ways.
Richard Sherman isn't a shutdown corner but he is an elite corner. He is big and physical and causes turn-overs and helps in the run game, etc etc.
There are a number of ways to play corner in the NFL and be be successful. I'll use current or sure-fire future HOFers as examples:
Deion Sanders - GREAT pure Cover Corner. Not remotely physical. Such a good cover corner, his lack of physicality didn't matter.
Rod Woodson - Very good Cover Corner, Very Physical.
Charles Woodson - <Pretty> Good Cover Corner, Very Physical, however his best attribute was an absolute nose for the ball
Champ Bailer - Very Good Cover Corner -- Average at best in terms of physicality
If I rated Revis and Sherman like that (not saying these guys are HOF bound)
Revis - Very good cover corner - Average physicality
Sherman - Good cover corner -- average ball skill, Superior physicality due to his freakish size for CB
Dalton had a 6.7 YPA, 4.1 ANYPA and 56.5 passer rating when targeting Green last night. Not exactly a ringing endorsement.
I guess I misunderstood you because while they may be #2 in points there are some teams who have hit bye weeks......but either way 4th as a average is very solid. But with the eye test this is not a very good offense. Far too inconsistent and when its time to milk the clock or control the clock they can't do it. Thank goodness the inconsistent defense has generated turnovers this year.
I love how people break comments being discussed into individual segments to try and make a point??? If someone catches 5-6 balls in 1st qtr in one game and 6 in the other 7, does that mean everything is equal??? I get it you dont like Dez, cool,its your opinion....My opinion is we dont use him as effectively as we could!!! So stop being Garretts PR guy with the stats....we dont see it the same way...
and at what point was the first throw??? 2nd qtr??? I guess that is when the lightbulb goes off in Garrett and Callahan's head....
Yes we are debating, and apparently not many agree with me on featuring Dez more!!! Insane indeed!!
I remember the doubling the #1 WR seemed to follow him and PI friendly Kevin Smith at the other end initially in Dallas after the SB. But I do remember him singling up on premier WRs early in his career like you mention.
I know 2 of the 3 ints were thrown to Sanu.
then stop using stats to try and prove your point.
First possession. I believe Romo tried to hit him on that short slant which they've had a hard time connecting on despite the many attempts.
Regardless, I think Adam pretty much closed this thread out right there
So I guess the OP wants 3 INTs and a Loss every week just so Dez can get his touches.
Big deal if he was. You have to execute in all three phases if you want to give yourself a chance to win. When we begin to count on one area more than others, it creates an imbalance. Why do y'all think our 90's team was so successful? We executed in all three phases; leaving opponents no hope.
Dogpile on the OP if it makes you feel good.
But forcing AP the rock got them 10 wins and a playoff birth last year. Why would they do anything different?
