    Cole Beasley has been boxed-in for the entirety of his athletic life. Labeled. Categorized. Diminished. Dissed. Somehow Beas manages to jack all the boxes the world squeezes him into. The NFL and its fans have come to learn that Cole packs some Houdini Sauce...and features an uncanny habit of busting out...and breaking through.

    The little kid from Little Elm Texas repeatedly surprises everyone, making big impact plays on America’s largest stage.

    What follows is a CowboyZone exclusive...a multi-installment thread discussing Cole and the boxes his world imposes—past, current and future. This thread demands extra time and attention and I intend to give it some love.

    Perhaps the toughest boxes Cole must escape are the ones not fully acknowledged...the traps newly conceived and those just lurking around the corner. This won’t be pure fan-fest. I’ll document my doubts from the past...explore the day he deserted the team...and be frank with skepticism about his future.

    Day 1...tomorrow...the kid from a small school in a nothing conference...and how he managed to get even that far.

    Beasley was my pet cat the year we picked him up undrafted from SMU. Watching his tape, I thought he'd have a place in the NFL and liked his tape better than Danny Coale's who we drafted in the 5th round that year. Coale got hurt in camp and that was all she wrote. I still remember Beasley catching like 12 balls against San Diego in preseason in between blowing chunks on the sidelines. When I heard Romo talk him up in one of the preseason pre-games I knew he made the team. I love an underdog.

    It's a little box.

    Boxed in right between the slot CB and the linebacker, just like all of 2017...

    As I’ll get to in this thread...I wasn’t an early believer. At all.

    Yup! Bracket/box coverage was something that helped drive the thread title.

    Do you always start threads without getting to the point? Or is this a new trend?

    There is way too much to explore here to condense down to a single post. I provided the theme and a forecast of what is coming. I’m unapologetic when I say, “multi-installment.”

    This isn’t twitter. This. Is. Sparta.

    Yep, and if we'd throw over the top of that, they'd stop doing it. But Dak doesn't like that region of the field.

    You want a syllabus? Sorry.

    I'll give one more preview:
    I'll explain my view on why Cole will never work as an outside receiver, despite offseason exploration of him playing there. I have my boxes for Cole too and I stand by them.

    But that's days away.

    Stop your fussing. Its not a good look.

    Beasley will benefit from a new scheme and receivers coach. This season he will have both. I expect him to have a good year.

    Beasley is an all-pro, best receiver in the league....... Last season he broke records and showed how great he was by catching 36 passes. To be honest can't wait to he is off the team next season, he is the most overrated player on the Cowboys right now

    Now that Dez is gone other players have a shot at the most overrated player title. Dez is gone and Witten was sure to take the overrated torch from Dez, but now he is gone too. Now, Beas and every other payer has a legitimate shot at it. It's there for the taking!

    There is a reason Switzer was the WR traded.
