    This may help some...http://thelandryhat.com/2017/01/04/dak-prescott-accurate-deep-passers/

    After my military service, I was a Postal Worker and then worked Security...it was convenient. I was a first responder and now work as Security for Citgo here in Corpus.

    23 year Veteran; 17 Postal; and 5 years ERT/Security Officer

    Enjoyed the talk and look forward to reading from your posts...

    Factually you are incorrect about Dak throwing more than 6 yards rarely.

    That particular game has become my acid test for other people's football knowledge. It's understandable that some people have poor or no understanding how injuries happen. That's a K-12 deficit. However, understanding sports does not require diplomas, degrees or even a GED.

    I've started shaking my head and walking away from any discussion where Romo receives anything above minimal criticism connected with that game. If it's impossible understanding how the defense played a huge part in not securing that win, it is equally impossible comprehending how a late interception wasn't the biggest reason in the loss.

    Like I've always said. Who on Dallas played better than he did that day? The answer 100% for sure is "no one. He was Dallas' best performer that day"
    Maybe the best performer on either team.
    When the coaches graded the film, he for sure graded out better than anyone else as he was probably an A+ (or an A at the absolute very worst) he was amazing that day.

    Oh well. Yes...it's a great football perspective filter.

    I don't think I am. There isn't really a stat on it so if you have that fact I'd like to see it. It's just what I watch every Sunday. I realize numbers indicate his yard per reception is higher than 6 yards. But I'll stand by "the ball is rarely in the air longer than six yards". Most of Beasley's routes are that 4 yard drag. He leads the the team in receptions. He dumps down to the backs...a lot. His deeper pass is typically that fake left roll right and hitting one of the receivers dragging across the field. Typically run that one once or twice a game. I did notice against Detroit it was in the air quite a bit longer. (but not quite sure where detroit was on that, regardless of the dallas game outcome they still had to beat GB the next week) I realize they are winning. I'm a Cowboys fan born and raised in Texas still fly down for a couple games a year for the past 20 years I have no vendetta. I'm thinking bigger picture it's difficult to consistently have long---many play drives like this. It's been a down year no really great teams so they have been living well. It's all irrelevant if Elliott runs for 120 a game and the defense gets 2 or 3 turnovers. It doesn't matter who is handing off the ball to him. But with this type of offensive scheme..it all needs to roll together.

    I don't have it in front of me but this is a stat that is kept these days.
    They keeps stats on "air yards" or how many yards the ball is in the air before caught.
    Dak's is surprisingly high, from what I recall.

    One of our resident stats guys (probably @percyhoward) will help you out soon enough.
