If Escobar played like, say, Jordan Reed, I doubt many people would have a problem with it.
Witten has been slowing down for a while now. We all know this some just don't want to believe I guess. The FO sees it. So they get a Witten replacement.
Jordan is 6'2" 240, he has played well but I will take the bigger target as a prospect everyday and twice on Sunday with the new rules.
As I said over and over again, this team could've drafted any position on the roster and been justified with the pick. Last year we needed youth at every position group, and guess what, we need it this year also. It is wide open cause we need talent everywhere, regardless of position.
You'd take Escobar even after seeing them both play? Really?
Escobar is much more of a project, but I still believe his upside is higher.
I didn't think he looked bad. He's been playing with a safety over the top and when Romo does get it to him its usually something behind him or his ankles.
Witten and ware both need to go.
He'd probably just throw it to him on the sideline because he's open.
Remember opening night in NY last season when Witten had the spleen injury? He wasn't going to play but at the last minute he did for decoy purposes only. That game appeared to be what a game would look like w/o Witten. Our offense looked really good, Romo spreading the ball out, etc. IMO, that was the last pure, flawless game this team has had. Romo didn't have Jason to rely on and the offense opened up. Receivers even ran nice routes and the predictability wasn't as obvious, to me anyways. It looked like a real, competent offense.
I want that back but don't want to see Witten go. He just needs to be reduced to decoy mode with the occasional movement of the chains and blocking purposes. I still think this offense will look better if Witten is Romo's last read or or an occasional safety valve.
Two or 3? If that's the case he might not end his career in Dallas.
He is doing a great job harnessing Dez
Unfortunately it seems both Witten and Ware's best days are behind them. It happens to everyone and I'll still remember them as the great Cowboys they were but it's time to get younger. Not certain Escobar can fill that void but I won't give up on a guy in his first year.
But there we have it, boys and girls. We have successfully squandered the career of a Hall of Fame tight end and pass rusher and are on our way to squandering the career of a franchise caliber quarterback. I've started to see signs of age in Tony as well, as much as it hurts me to say it. Hopefully it's just a funk he is in.
He is sadly correct about this .
Looked good against a 1-win team and looked average/bad against 1-loss team. At this point, Dallas should try starting Escobar or working him in more just to see what they got. It seems Dallas is waiting for the ideal situation. Well, at 5-5, ideal left the station 3 games ago.
he is on pace for 75 catches and is 4th in the nfl among tightends.he is also 5th in yards for te's, and is tied for 6th in td's. perception and reality are two different things
Witten cannot get any slower as he gets older. He was always slow.
Witten looks bad because the whole offense looks bad. Plus Romo seems to throw a bad pass to him about 70% of the time. If Romo throw a pass to him and he is open and it falls at his feet is that somehow his fault because he is older?
Yeah Witten's best days are behind him.
Love the guy, but it's time we move on from guys like him and Ware
We'll miss Jason when he's gone.
Jason had a couple of inexcusable drops this week. That's about all I've noticed. He otherwise is as immobile and wily and sure handed as he's always been.
Remember last season when posters were quick to jump on his slow start. This is what happens as players get older. Fans starting lining up to take their names in the CZ Family Death Pool. Once enough fans have your name, you're fair game for unfair criticism until that point where your skills actually do diminish enough that you're off the team, and then everybody who got your name early gets to gloat.
Then, you go somewhere else like Terrance Newman did and play for a couple more seasons at a high level because you actually had some significant room to go on your career curve at the right price and the right number of snaps.
I've noticed Witten dropping balls in more than a couple of games this year. Just saying
