    Jason Garrett must let talent flow

    Jean-Jacques Taylor [ARCHIVE] ESPNDallas.com | December 4, 2012

    IRVING, Texas -- Philosophically, Jason Garrett believes the more players a defense has to stop, the better, because it allows his offense to attack favorable matchups. Read more at link. http://m.espn.go.com/wireless/story?storyId=8707734&city=dallas

    those idiot beat writers and 'haters in the media', NFL commentators, so called experts, people who have been in actual NFL front offices, former coaches and players

    being critical of RJ again

    clearly ignorant of the basics of football

    ever thought of sending your extensive football resume to the media outlets so you can shine the light, show them the true path?

    JJT's an idiot.

    Could barely read the thing but saw the part about Beasley should never be targeted "X" amount of times because he's not dynamic enough to make the most of those opportunities?

    You don't put quotas on targets. If it works out that Beasley has 10 or 15, that's how it works out. What do you do, throw to someone who isn't open when Beasley is?

    The only time I would ever do something along the lines of putting a quota on a target is right along the lines with what Collinsworth said the other night.

    At least a coule of times per game just throw it up deep to Dez and let him go after it.

    Article is written like a ten year-old, but one thing is for certain, Dez does need to get the ball early.

    Come on, now! Gene Jock Tailor is not capable of writing anything that would remotely be considered "genius." :lmao:

    JJT is a terrible writer, but he's right here in that you have to get the ball in the hands of your best players. You can't always just take what the defense gives because they're always going to give you Cole Beasley and not Dez Bryant.

    Sometimes on offense you have to find a way to take what you want.

    Then it would be obvious to even the most obtuse of us, like me! :D

    No genius here. Move along... .:p:

    Whoah, there, slippery slope! Let me get my crimpons out. I said JJT wrote a horrible article. Because he's awful at his job, and because he wrote an entire article based on a premise that was exploded in a previous press conference when the head coach was asked about pass distribution directly.

    And because the article contains stuff like this:

    in regards to a game we won, where the offense put up 31 points and moved the ball really well both on the ground and in the air.

    He's also disregarding the fact that the offense makes a ton of adjustments in the game based on coverages to make sure it gets the matchups it wants, but that's because he fundamentally misunderstands how football works even after all these years 'covering' the team. But, hey, it sounds good to an untrained ear and agitates the masses.

    I've got plenty of my own criticism of JG on record if anyone bothers to read it. I just make an effort, at least, to make sure that if I'm going to pick on a guy, I use a valid point of criticism.

    This.

    Gene Jock Tailor displays shabby writing skills as it is but when he uses words like "ridiculous" and "whatever" he is the one who is ridiculous and his article is whatever. ;)

    It's a balance and really should be up to the QB but I do think a special talent like Dez should create special rules. There is simply no reason why he should get one ball thrown his way an entire half. Guys like him aren't ever really covered with the way he can play the jump balls.

    But the overall emphasis of spreading the ball around and attacking a defense's weakness is sound. Not only at full strength but it creates less of an issue if there's an injury when you have several guys on offense who are used to significant roles. If our offense was all Dez Bryant, what happens if he goes down for an extended period?

    That's what you see in New England. Everybody has a key role. Anybody on that offense could be the star of the game. It's a week to week thing on who gets the most looks and they are the least effected by injury because of it.

    But, again, the Patriots don't have a Dez Bryant and we need to take that into consideration. Treat him unlike any other player.

    I don't think Romo is very fond of throwing into double coverage, but I do agree that he should test those limits once in awhile to "send a message" to the defense that the offense can do whatever it wants. FWIW I've seen riskier passes go towards Bryant's way to let him go up and get it. You just can't make a living out of that and that's what it seems JJT is looking for.

    Romo is the type of QB that will pick his spots when he wants to take shots at the defense but he has to have confidence in his receivers and the guys upfront.

    It's interesting notion to me that #1 WRs typically have their least productive quarter in the first, due to their offenses attempting to establish a sense of running game and balance and getting a feel for how defenses are covering them out of the gate before they can counterscheme a way around it. Unfortunately I can't find a site that does career statistical splits by quarter to prove or disprove it.

    Dez has actually lined up on both sides of the field and also lined up as a Z reciever beside Witten.

    Dallas does alot of moving around and flipping formations to find favorable matchups.

    That's how the offense will find ways to attack a defense, it's just not instant results like everyone expects all the time.

    I'm a big fan of building a roster where you actually can only take advantage of what's exposed. It's not that hard to do, really. You just need players with reasonable skills who are always where they're supposed to be. See Robinson. Harris, now, is able to do it, too.
