    Easy to have INFLATED stats at the WR position when your QB throws the ball 62 TIMES and you're DEAD LAST in rushing.

    A valid point but you have to be able to quantify it. How many throws are going to Dez and Witt? How many to Miles? That's really the only way you can look at that and know for certain that the number of throws in a game are in support of your position. I honestly don't know what that number looks like but I'd bet it's heavily weighted in favor of Dez and Witten.

    That's just a guess of course.

    What the hell do we need one of those for? We all know Romo is at his best on the run. :)

    Per ESPN, Dez has been targeted 97 times.

    Miles has been targeted 85 times.

    Since Miles couldn't play last game, I'm guessing they are just about neck and neck in number of targets (when they both play).

    Of course, that is the problem.....

    Dez was targeted 11 times in the Washington game -- Miles was targeted 0 times (obviously).

    So, remove the targets from the Washington game and it's 86/85.

    That does not seem like a lion's share to me.

    Before the washington game Dez had 57 catches for 735 yards as miles has 49 for 727. Pretty much the same, but people want Miles gone for qhat reason, I dont know. Why cut a guy for a 3.5 million cap savings when he produces. I do not want to create another hole or need. We don't even have a #3 WR much less release our #2.

    We can use 3.5 to sign a OL, who I don't know but just any I guess. I mean look we signed Mack bern last offseason. We need help on OL that Is for sure but cutting miles doesn't fix anything. No top OL is going to be availble and Dallas should have enough money to sign a good lineman.

    If you do it right you free up 5 million and that is what you do when guys are past their contract and always injured you have to move on.

    Yes it only frees up 3.5 million but you can not continue to pay guys 3.5 million more than their worth.

    What we did with Barber and other guys. Hell we did it with groude and the coaches liked him.

    Andy Levitre should be the #1 priority come offseason.. solid in the pass & run. I think he & Tyron would make a great tandem on that left side of the line

    Jarius Byrd is #1 on my list. Buffalo has a quick read pass offense so that helps the OL stats.

    Alao we need a replacement for Free, I would rather spend the money on a tackle and get a rookie OG early.

    Dallas has enough money to spend where 3.5 million won't make a difference.

    You can only make one player a June 1st cut and that shiuld be Free IMO. We should try a redo Austins contract but again who will be our #2 WR.

    He would be a great player to sign at safety, I just don't see in any way the Bills parting ways.. He will get top $ from the Bills or be tagged

    When did that change ? I missed that in the new deal

    Miles is not going to play but maybe 12 more games is my guess this year so who cares. You do not need two stud wr to win.

    No you don't need two studs but you need another good Wr or Dez is just going to be doubled. This is jerry were tqlking about and he loves WRs.

    It's in the new CBA, only one player can be made the a June 1st veteran cut. That was why Newman was the only player we coild do that too last year.

    the only reason you would cut Austin is if you could get a high pick for him. Then I could see it. It not like we couldnt just sign Robinson as a free agent and keep austin. Miles Austin is getting paid to be the number one and he hasnt lived up to the bill. Dez is our number one Autin our number two. Ive got no real problem with Austin outside the fact that he is hurt all the time. Its the Kim Kardasian Curse. She the career killer of athletes. ;)

    Why cut Austin.so we have more holes to fill.We need OL help BIG time.Some of the fans here wanting to cut Austin remind me of the time when Buddy Ryan cut Chris Carter or when the Cardinals cut Jay Novacek brilliant moves they turned out to be.As far as Harris and Beasley go your fooling yourself s if you think these guys are big time players after 1 game come on.Remember Ogletree after one game.These guys are projects at best.

    Why use correct grammar, spacing, and capitalization?
