    He did with TO. He used to move around a lot. Not sure what happened after he left, though.

    Beasley outside would be limited as far as effective routes, but I think the main objective is to get Dez in the slot and shake things up a bit.

    Attacking the middle of the field?

    Blasphemous!

    Ultimately, if Street develops, I can see him being the one to take the outside in these situations. I think they're going with Beasley simply because he's their 3rd best receiver currently.

    That would be an ideal scenario if Dez isn't on the outs. Williams and Street on the outside with Dez in the slot. Beasley on the outside is a tad scary to me.

    i don't think size is the issue. beasly is a super quick guy but not super fast. his strength is running routes not running by people. inside that is more effective. i could see him outside some but his real strength is inside routes, even if ran from the outside because in a small space he is hard to cover because he is super quick in and out of cuts

    Yeah, we'll be seeing a lot of those.

    I've been studying Linehan's offense, and it certainly is "creative", if that's a good word to describe it.

    Definitely won't hurt to get Beasley some reps out there although I think Harris would be the short term replacement until Street develops. I think it neutralizes Beasleys strengths putting him outside. Hopefully one of the young guys steps up. The receivers they have been accumulating lately are definitely outside receivers. Hope your right about Street.

    Throw the ball or run where they ain't. It's not hard.

    The T-shirt he wipes his face on. That breaks me up every time.

    I'm excited for our 02 or 01 sets personally.

    Dez
    Williams
    Beasley
    Witten
    Escobar

    or

    Dez
    Williams
    Beasley
    Street
    Witten



    I know it won't be used very often, but if you mix Harris in here and there, could be some nice quick plays out of this set.

    Blitz if you must but that group should be able to get open pretty quick.

    I'm not a huge Beasley fan. I like him. I think he can get some separation whether in the slot or outside but outside he's not running by anyone unless they muck it up. He'll have to run stuff underneath and to the outside. He should do well with back shoulder catches out there. JMO.

    Part of that is just the logic of the depth chart. If they had Carr at LCB when both Claiborne and Scandrick are at RCB then they would be developing a 2nd string RCB but not a 2nd string LCB.

    I saw Dez in the slot a bit last year. I think it was used sparing due to youth in personnel. They have more time to develop the idea with proven young receivers this year as opposed to last year where we were never sure who our #3 #4 #5 guy was going to be until the season was half passed. Williams turned out to be solid and Beas also showed he can be a viable asset. Now that you know you've at least 4 guys who can go out there and make plays, you're more comfortable at making them learn routes in different areas. However, Beas will have to really prove himself on the outside because, we drafted a guy that will certainly compete for versatility and sure hands.

    Beasley might be good on the WR screen play sometimes called the smoke play or smoke screen.

    It doesn't seem like Romo has been terribly accurate on those plays, even though I have no stats to back it up. I think they ran it a few times with Ogletree, but he was playing out of the slot, if memory serves.

    That is the part that worries me. It seems that the Cowboys have the horses up front now, so maybe, if they are Princeton smart, they will RUN THE FRIGGEN BALL, and not rely on Romo to save the day!
