Taking the read-option out of the playbook entirely will fix over half of our woes.

Put me at WR.

i guess if anyone wanted to make edwards look better, this would be a way to do it. "you thought edwards sucked? check this chump out!"

It'll be interesting to see if Gettis comes back this week. From everything I have he is ready and has been all year. They just didn't want to rush him in and risk anything. If he can get back to where he was as a rookie, that will be a big thing for our offense. He was way better than LaFell as a rookie in every aspect and hopefully still is.

i think they said they were going to look at him the next couple weeks before they made a decision about him.

The optimist in me wants to say it will be a big thing for our offense.

The cynic that usually beats the optimist down and forms my opinions solo says it won't matter because as long as Cam is being hit as much as he throws he'll lock in on Smitty and ignore all of the other receivers.

DEF agree that we need to run the ball... But let me ask you this... If Cam was accurate with his passes last week, would it have seemed that he was forcing the ball? It's not like Cam was throwing into triple coverage last week bro. It just appeared worse due to Cam being way off the mark. If Cam wasn't imagining Smitty as Andre the fuggin Giant they would have been completions...

That's smitty's M.O. though. He goes up and gets his balls. The guy can jump. I think he has a 40" vertical if I'm not mistaken. But also, Smith has dropped a lot of easy balls this year as well, some that could not have been thrown more perfectly. I wouldn't put it all on Cam's throwing. I do agree he needs to improve his mechanics though. But he's had that problem since college.

Need more multiple TE sets. Cam targeted TEs 155 times last year

On pace to target the TE almost 50 less times....Cam would use those as his checkdowns often last year even though they weren't true checkdowns.

Nice sarcasm, but they need to be on the field more. I say it over and over, spread teams out. Its something Cowboys definitely wouldn't game plan for

It wasn't sarcasm. I genuinely enjoy watching both of them. Everytime they have got the ball this year, other then special teams, they have done great things.

If you rewatch the film against Seattle, Cam had open recievers everywhere underneath. It seemed that Cam only looked at 1 target on each certain play, if he wasnt open he panicked and failed to go through all of his progressions. He needs to improve in that aspect of the game

Product of being young and trying to feed the stud....

Takes most greats years to pick teams apart with 2nd and 3rd options. Tom Brady today is a much different QB than the won who beat us in 2003.

Too often people forget Cam is in his QB infancy....
