    This still crawls up my skin that we are starting Jason Witten who is slow as snail over Blake Jarwin...Just the stats say what I am talking about from this game. This Jason Garrett-Jason Witten buddy crap needs to stop.

    Jason Witten 8 receptions for 58 yards 0 TDs

    Blake Jarwin 1 reception for 42 yards 1 TD..

    Because Witten is Dak’s safety blanket. One catch doesn’t change that fact.

    Don't give me this nonsense that Jarwin can't block because that was what he was at Oklahoma State....

    Jarwin would be if they would make calls to go to Jarwin instead of Witten who is here for only selfish reasons. He wants to be #1 in receptions for TEs over Tony Gonzales hoping to be a first ballot HOF....I am sure if Prescott gets hurt that Garrett-Jed-and Jethro will try everything to get Romo back to start....This nonsense needs to stop...We lost Taco Charlton because we started broken down Crawford who sat out all preseason just to be rewarded the starting RDE spot. Now Charlton is playing well in Miami while Crawford does his usual sitting on the sidelines and hurt again.

    Jarwin’s routes aren’t as clean. Everything else in your post is speculative nonsense.

    But we know that Jason can block....Zeke had his longest run last night on results of a great Witten block. Good thing is that Jarwin and Witten play for the Cowboys

    Jarwin is better at bigger receptions, but Witten is better at moving the chains and is Dak's security blanket.

    This staff needs to find a good mix. Jarwin should get targets every game. The misuse of Jarwin n Pollard has been glaring for me. Go Cowboys.

    I'm with you, Blake should be getting a majority of the snaps.

    Because Witten is a better TE than Jarwin
    How many times do I have to say this?

    I just think Jarwin needs to get more targets on first and second down. I don’t care if Witten starts and I don’t care if Witten is Dak’s “security blanket”

    Make sure Witten is in there on the money downs, fine, but Jarwin brings some athleticism to the TE position and it’s something that I feel is sorely lacking in this offense.

    Speaking of Tight Ends, the Cowboys did a pretty darn good job shutting Evan Engram down tonight.

    Bravo!

    That security blanket crap is garbage. as if Witten is the only guy on the roster who can run 5 yard outs and slants

    Jarwin can’t block. That’s why he doesn’t start.


    He should be getting more snaps and opportunities in the passing game though.

    Witten is far more reliable to secure the block or get the first down.

    That is infinitely more valuable than a once every few games 40-yd TD.

    Really doesn't matter who starts. It's more about the bend and being happy that a legit #2 is possible.

    He absolutely should be playing more. They need to find a way to utilize them both.

    In 2019? That's debateable.
