    Me either. IMO you have to be on Parsons level talent at WR for that kind of money. I mean Randy Moss. And I'd have to have a team in the conversation for a SB. Otherwise what's the point? Who do we have running around out there now? Rush is finding them.

    But I will say one thing. No way Jalen Hurts has this kind of success without the WRs he has right now. I'd say the same for Tua. Those two QBs will crash and burn the second that talent isn't there.

    It bothered me at first and even afterward. The lack of accountability with the Cowboys needs to be corrected in the worst way. Maybe I'm taking this too seriously but in the long run, I'm hoping it doesn't go unnoticed. He's had far too many days when those easy drops have happened. Here's hoping it decreases at some point soon.

    I think it's akin to nervous laughter. I doubt that he actually finds it amusing, unless he's psychic and knows he's going to catch the game winner in spectacular fashion.

    He's very young and inexperienced, but I feel he'll eventually learn that it's not anything resembling a crowd pleaser for a #1 wideout. I'm not recommending a death penalty or anything of the sort, though. I just hope MM discourages that reaction. ;)

    Agreed, the optics aren't good.

    I don’t think anyone person could cost us the game. But I know what you’re saying

    I don't understand why people are saying Lamb redeemed himself. You can not make up for how horrible of a play that was. It is what it is.

    All WR's do it, but that one was really bad. I don't understand what his hands were doing, and why they were not up. He didn't redeem anything. He had some really good catches, a tough clutch 4th down conversion, a top notch td catch, and an atrocious nonsensical missed catch that can not be erased.

    ?????


    So a QB throwing a pick in the second quarter doesnt have a chance of redeeming himself?

    A RB fumbling doesnt have a chance of redeeming himself?

    A Kicker shanking a FG doesnt have a chance of redeeming himself??

    Exactly.

    re·deem
    [rəˈdēm]
    VERB
    1. compensate for the faults or bad aspects of (something)
    You can not compensate for something by doing what you are supposed to do. That was an atrocious drop. I don't think you can say, you can cancel that horrible drop because you did what you are supposed to do when you made the drop. It is what it is.

    He did step up and play well in the 2nd half..

    CD had to become more consistent to become a great player.
    I appreciate the spectacular TD's
    But you kill drives dropping easy passes.

    Let me put it another way. If he had made catches on that same drive to get a TD or the field possession he would have gotten, that would be redeeming himself. He compensated for what he did, and the cowboys did not lose anything from it.

    I am not anti lamb and I dont think players are going to play mistake free. I am saying you can't redeem some things. You cant redeem an interception, fumble, or a missed field goal that changes possession. That possession is lost. Making plays later in the game like he is supposed to do, does not do anything for the drive that was lost.

    I think your viewpoint is nonsense.

    I think he’s a better reciever working the middle than outside. His run after the catch on crossing routes, slants and the like will return if you get him the ball moving across the field I think

    I was harsh on him after the drop. I feel he is so talented that even he has a hard time realizing when his hands betray him. Glad he had a short term memory and came back in focus to seal the win.

    Like I said last night, I hope he walks from this team. This team doesn't deserve him, Pollard, Parsons, or any player that actually has a track records of success. People say its CeeDee, however, not every WR, including #1's catch everything. He was 3/6 last night when everyone was saying they'll eat crow..well they ate it. Now here we are again, pointing out his drops..just hope the OU guy walks away from this 26 year dysfunction. Regardless, most also don't realize he hasn't even had one week with what is going to be our full WR group. He has Brown, no Pollard at this time.

    There is almost no way you can pay a QB 40 -50 million per year and also pay a WR 30 million.

    The players around the QB has always mattered as much as the QB.

    Dropped multiple TDs as a rookie. Hands and concentration are an issue.

    Gotta fix the dropsies.

    This. I really don't miss him @ all‐ only the compensation we received was mortifyingly bad
