    Looking back at the game Sunday, it's striking just how nice it was to see all those guys running after the catch in a way we haven't seen in a long time. Three YAC numbers that really jumped out at me:

    Gallup: 76
    Cobb: 41
    Witten: 16

    Ironically, it look Witten and Gallup the same amount of time to cover their respective distances. ;)

    Witten and Yac are like oil and water. The two just don’t go together.

    Dak's new redefined throwing delivery (and footwork) is doing wonders, all thanks to QB Coach Jon Kitna.

    I love watching Witten get the ball in the flat and just create.

    Dude is a YAC machine.

    Yac is a function of catching the ball in stride. Sometimes it's a great throw. Other times it's an adjustment by the wr. Seemed like a good dose of both. Hope it continues.

    I don't know what you're talking about. YAC is a function of falling down in the right direction.

    In one sideline shot you could actually see a fan in the stands going to his seat passing Witten getting his YAC.

    Witten's YAC is described as yawn after the catch:laugh:

    As well as great play calling and scheming. Play action gets the defense to freeze and can leave WR's wide open.

    Witten had 16 yards after catch? He must have ended up with 10 receptions, I'm guessing.

    Perfect placement of the ball does wonders. Dak clearly worked hard in the off season.

    Only bad thing I can say about Dak is he threw a couple balls behind guys, one a crossing route and the TD pass to Swaim but Swaim was athletic enough to turn his body around, make the catch and run for the score.
