    I didn't mean it that Dez really was feeling that way, just that I could understand it hypothetically speaking if it was a reason. I did a poor job of conveying that in my post, and I can see how it comes across like that.

    The game was about the only thing he was focused on, clearly. Not what the perception of his actions would be, which is what some seem to think should have been #1 in his mind.

    Like I said previously, if anyone thinks for a second that he wouldn't have gone back in with 11 seconds to go and done all he could to haul in a pass, they are fooling themselves. That's all the kid does, go 100%.

    DEZ was saying you should have been throwing the ball to me the hole game and we would not be in this mess.

    We just don't agree Count. I believe he was distracted and not focused. I don't dispute that he would have given it his best but I question if it was the best he could be in that situation.


    A focused Dez is very hard to stop. An unfocused Dez is not nearly as much trouble, no matter how much effort he might put into it.

    That's my view on the matter.

    I believe it was 1:07. Regardless, a well coached team does not allow a 30+ yard bomb down the sidelines when the opposing team has no timeouts. That's exactly what you don't want to do in this situation. You want to keep players in the middle of the field and guard the sidelines so that time continues to run. That's coaching 101.

    You said it right Count. If the Cowboys would have got the ball to DEZ more, they would have won the game and then could have told Brian Bullcrap to shove his microphone up his butt.

    I agree but to be fair, that was a perfect pass and the coverage was there. The pass was simply perfect. Do I like it? No, I don't like it but that doesn't mean that I'm going to throw Garrett under the bus for that. There are things that I do not like but I just don't see that game as Garretts fault. There have been games where I thought the coaching staff was at fault but not that one.

    In the first audio? Yep. 2nd audio? Nobody knows, because it wasn't released.

    I watch the games. Do you?

    Dez goes to his spot and stays put. It's extremely rare to see him in the slot or in motion. Virtually never.

    Same can be said about any of our other receivers.

    And again, I don't believe this stuff. It all goes back to coaching.

    That is not to the fault of Dez. Blame the coaches for that one.

    Ah, the ol' "i watch the games" argument.. classic.

    Yes, sir.. i most certinly watch the games that my favorite team plays.. thanks for asking.

    Now, maybe you could begin to explain to all of us how Dez lining up at one position on Sundays is evidence that he can't learn other routes/positions, and not just evidence that our coaching staff is failing to utilize him how he would be most effective?

    Just today Aikman was quoted as saying:

    "Michael Irvin got doubled a lot, and there's routes that are very good vs. double coverage. But you then have to run good routes," Aikman said Thursday on KTCK-AM 1310 and KTCK-FM 96.7 "And if you're not running good, precise routes then it's hard to try and fit balls into tight spaces when you're a little unsure where a guy is going to be."

    "To me, what I've seen of Dez, what I've watched on film, that's where he has to get better," Aikman said of Bryant's route running.

    "He's extremely competitive when the ball is in the air. And when people challenge him, that's when he's at his best...But when there are guys around him, and there's safety help, his routes are not as precise. He's not nearly the route runner Michael Irvin was."

    Seems to be some indication from someone who has watched Dez on film that he isn't the route runner he should be.

    I would take Troy's word that Dez needs to get better.. but not to the point where you can't even throw it up in his direction and let him fight for the ball. I don't think you're going to lose many of those battles. Jmo.

    That sounds like a pretty fair assessment to me.

    Dez needs to fix that.

    Cowbys need to fix end of game offense, don't try not to lose, win the dam game don't try to kill clock.
