    Something else to note is the run/pass option.

    32 post is the run call.

    Also the F-drag part of the call is for Austin to run a drag route - a quick, pass route underneath but also the hot read if the linebackers blitz.

    949 - is the X Y Z patterns of Bryant, Witten, and KO.

    (In the Coryell system the F is the slot WR as Witten is the Y)

    A, It wasn't a screen

    B. The terminology for the Coryell system is often simpler than some WCO IIRC.

    WCOs don't tend to use numbers for routes, but rather the actual word for the routes.

    It can get long winded but the playcalls are structured the same as in:

    formation, run, audible, pass routes, protection, rb route.

    Sarcasm....just taking a jab at Garrett because I disagree with a lot of his playcalling

    Austin running a drag and Witten running a ~6-7 yd out are quick, developing pass plays.

    The 9 route by KO clears that area in the cover 2 shell to give Witten room underneath it.

    That drag was wide open. Easy money.

    Initially it wasn't as the LB cut in front of Austin momentarily as he's watching the RB leak out of the pocket.

    At this point in time Romo sees Witten break for the outside with his man a step behind him so Romo makes his decision.

    There aren't enough threads open where you can complain about Jason Garrett and play calling?

    To the OP, great stuff. What's the source of the video content? Is that a local show? I'm not familiar with it. And, yes, that drag to Austin was there, too. But Witten was open if Tony'd been able to squeeze that ball in there.

    That drag to Austin has been open a couple of times in critical situations the last two weeks, not including his drop in ATL. I bet we start seeing connections on those more if we're able to keep the pocket cleaner than we were able to this weekend.

    It's from NFL's Turning Point.

    Just to sum it all up, you have the outside guys running vertical routes and the inside guy running underneath routes.

    The shorter, quicker routes seem to be something posters continually scream for and in a short yardage situation Romo and Garrett are looking to get the first down.

    BTW this was one of those misthrows that Tony has had uncharacteristically this season.

    I love seeing stuff like this. Much needed perspective for my daily Garrett-hating.

    Real info.

    I'd love to see what this offense would be capable of with Austin, and two other WR who know what they're doing. Why'd we get rid of Crayton? Robinson? Two WR who were productive here because they were smart. Bryant and Ogletree must severely handicap what we want to do. Romo missing easy passes doesn't help either. His accuracy has been pretty spotty this year.

    Wonder if Garrett's offense would be better w/ a more accurate passer and at least one more capable receiver?

    You can go on and on about playcall but it comes down to execution. The play in the video is wide open to convert the 1st down it comes down to making the play. It is great that fans would call a different play but in the end any play you call has to be executed.

    If it 2nd and 1 why not just run the ball?

    It's true. I usually don't harp on Garrett for his playcalling, because it's pretty difficult to understand what's going on, and it's ridiculously easy (read: lazy) to say what would've worked better in hindsight.


    I would like to know, however, why Garrett continues to plug stupid players into an offense that requires smart ones. Why'd we get rid of the guys who could adjust and run the right routes? And go with a group of mental midgets instead? Is Jerry making these personnel decisions? If yes, why does Garrett allow that?

    This offense clearly requires players who are smart and can think on their feet. Why doesn't he surround his QB with players like that?

    where is crayton these days? just because he was a decent 3rd WR long ago, doesn't make him so today.

    Robinson took the money. Jerry wasn't willing to pay him the kind of money he was looking for.

    and its funny to read the garrett hating, yet people complain about the players. is it garrett? or the players?

    We had smarter players. Your post above mentioned Crayton and where is he today? Who cares? While he was here, he was good. And extremely useful when the opponent blitzed.

    Robinson, likewise, gave us speed and dependability. And production!

    We've had these guys and let them go. Yeah Robinson wanted starters money. But if this offense's success absolutely depends on their WRs, why in the hell did we go with Bryant and Ogletree (knowing full well that these guys take the short bus)

    Jerry should have absolutely found a way to keep Robinson. Ogletree should have been hitting the bricks.
