WR Position Not as Stocked as Advertised

The depth of the Cowboys roster at WR was certainly put to the test this week with the absence of Roy Williams and Sam Hurd from Saturday nights game against the 49ers, and lets just say they didn’t pass. The position as a whole looked absolutely dreadful. However, individually there was one bright spot at wide receiver, rookie Kevin Ogletree came up with some big catches in key situations, and looked very polished in his route running and determination.

On the other end of that evaluation was the very over-hyped Miles Austin. While Austin did manage to catch a couple of passes finally (after not having a catch the past two weeks) he once again managed to make more of an impact not catching the ball.

For the third week in a row Austin could be frequently found running less than stellar routes, quitting altogether on routes, and dropping passes that should have been easy snags. Beyond Miles Austin, there was the always disappointing Isaiah Stanback routinely running poor routes. Although Stanback did manage to catch one pass from Jon Kitna in the fourth quarter, which was then punched out of his arms and recovered by the defense.

Beyond the undrafted rookie free agent Kevin Ogletree, there was nothing to get excited about at the wide receiver position for the Cowboys. Personally I think it is time to hit the free agent market, preferably with the signing of Matt Jones, who is still available.

    Sir I love what you have to say about the WR of the cowboys but what about Jesse Holley why are thay not playing him in the WR position?
    I for one thank he is a great player but the cowboys are not playing but one or two downs per game? Yes he is the winner of the 4th and long so what if he is that good why dont thay use him?

    keep up the great work..

    THANK YOU! I have been blogging every post I can find about getting Matt Jones. I don’t know what JJ is waiting for. We now need to sign him more than ever. JJ has the perfect “Out” now to sign him and not catch major media hell. Hopefully this will happen this week.
