    the offense. Twice, when the Eagles blitzed I was shocked that we had no crossing routes called to beat the blitz. I saw receivers running straight up the field, those routes are long developing and aren't the best in beating man coverage. Was I wrong in what I saw if so lets hear it.

    Terry Bradshaw always says the best routes in football are the crossing routes. Miles used to be so good at it too.

    If you have a chance to watch any all-22 footage, you will see that this is very common in Red's anemic offence.



    .........and yes, it's spelled that way on purpose.

    No your not wrong. Our routes are long developing putting more pressure on our Oline and Romo. Garrett's playbook should be thrown out the window. It just doesn't fit with the skills of our offense.

    We won in spite of Garrett's idiot playcalling.

    I saw that from my couch. These WRs have no clue how to adjust a route based on the defensive look.

    I don't know if its the wrs or the offensive design but those blitz were begging to be beat with a crossing route.

    You'd think that with Miles Austin on the team, a crossing route would be a staple of the offense. The guy is almost guaranteed to get you a first down if he catches one.

    I saw the same thing. A lot of people running away from the QB with looong routes. It's awful.

    They also seem to be against calling smoke and bubble screens to the wide receivers this season.

    Yep when I saw that angle, it was evident why the passing game tends to struggle. You have the two outside receivers running a route to nowhere down the sideline...right into the coverage the defense wants to play. Romo has nowhere to go with the ball.

    Garrett doesn't adjust his system to the talent that is available. Simple as that.

    He had Felix on a little checkdown in the flat if he wanted it but I doubt he would've got much.

    I think its on the coach...it's been the same way since he's been here.

    My biggest gripe with JG's playcalling is that, rather than try to beat the blitz with quick hitters or screens, he's looking for big plays against it and hoping that the line holds. Wrong approach imo.

    How about the back shoulder pass to Austin. That was almost automatic in 2009-2010. But we don't throw that to him any more.

    Garrett said he adjusted his scheme to suit his personnel?

    I've never heard him say it, but I can see that in his schemes and even his "next man up" philosophy. IMO, He feels supremely confident that his plan for the team and his offensive philosophy in general will take the Cowboys to the highest level once he gets in the "right kind of guys" in every position.

    I'm sure most people and media think that he us just using those terms as generalized answers to media questions (I used to), but he really feels that when he gets players with the right level of intelligence, work ethic and passion for the game in every position that the mistakes will stop and his offense will completely overwhelm teams.
