    Even before Austin's latest hammy he hadn't done much. It's been 11 games since his last 100 game. In his last 2 games he's only produced 5 catches for 53 yards and hasn't caught a TD pass since week 16 of last season. Even though he's returned to practice it's unlikely he's 100%. Missing the last 4 games is a clear indication his hamstring is giving him some real problems and they aren't going away. Once he starts having problems with his hammy he's not very effective. I'll be surprised if he makes a big impact on Sunday having missed as much time as he has. I expect the Cowboys to do everything they can to try and get the ball in Dez's hands.

    I can't see miles being the difference in winning or losing. He's the fifth best option to throw to on offense. When he was at his best, he was a great run after the catch receiver. I don't see that in him anymore.

    Miles Austin has 14 100 yard games to his name.
    1 was in 2008, 5 of those were in 2009, 5 of them in 2010, 1 in 2011, 2 in 2012, and 0 in 2013.

    He has 4 games with 2 or more touchdowns.
    2 in 2009, 1 in 2010, and 1 in 2011. None in 2012 or 2013.

    This ship sailed a long, long time ago. Miles Austin was a fun player to watch develope. It was great to watch a guy go from an undrafted free agent to making you forget about the drama T.O. caused and make you forget about how badly we overpaid for Roy Williams. He won a lot of people a 2009 fantasy football championship. But as far as NFL time goes, his days of being an impact player were a long, long time ago.
