no.

too lazy to look for a link, but it'll be at least week 8 before he's considered.

Not true at all. He could very well suit up this weekend, although id be surprised if he did . they have 3 weeks from the day he practices (Wednesday) to keep him on the Pup, IR, or activate him... He could technically get the nod this Sunday.

We will however learn his fate by week 8

They have 3 weeks to make the decision, they will take their time. I don't see it happening in the first week, he needs to practice.

One of the reasons none of the offensive guys are really showing out is lack of snaps by the offensive team as a whole. They cant sustain drives, cant get rhythm and basically suck.

this, a million times.

There are plenty of reasons, but like most people are saying, I blame the read option. It's a boom or bust play and it doesn't help the offenses rhythm at all. Running out of shotgun constantly is no good.

The play fakes are awful for Cam's footwork and timing. It always looks like he's throwing flat footed. I've seen him rush throws because he has his eyes downfield and wants to squeeze it in. I'd rather see him come out of the fake, in rhythm, survey, and step into his throw.

Gotta start looking specifically to hit LaFell, Olsen and Murphy underneath. Defenses can't take away both the deep ball and the shallow passes.

I would love to see us "roll the pocket" to let a big hitter delvelope...of course that would entail the guys up front actually blocking.

he needs more than just one or two weeks of practice to be considered for a game, even if he is guaranteed 100%.

I would guess because he isn't an integral cog of the read option.

Gettis said he has been in shape and healthy since about the beginning of the season. The coaches just put him on PUP to rest him up a little longer. Didn't feel the need to rush him back. I am sure he is in shape enough to play and even though he has never played a game in this offense, he has practiced plenty in it and studied the playbooks and film. It wouldn't be too crazy if he suited up to play just to see if he provides a spark.

Gettis may know the playbook. But no one knows what offense we are running.

How much practice do you need just to run a go route?

i would love to see gettis activated and mixed in with some packages for sunday. test that secondary with some deep routes that'll open up some underneath stuff for smitty and lafell.

aren't the cowboys missing a starting safety for this game?
