Haha I love Rico, the talent of Rico anyway, but the Cowboy beat writers have given me the impression that the coaching staff doesn't love him like we do. Like he's got a very high chance to not be on the squad after cuts. We will see, but I have no idea why he isn't getting a looooong look at tight end with what he showed last preseason before injury.

Rico might not make the team. The Cowboys place a crazy amount of emphasis on the ability to block and Rico doesn't know how to do it (no real football background)

That's a impressive list. Taco is still to be determined.....but I Think Byron has proven he can cover in this league...just not a free safety. And the others are pro bowlers.

If he doesn't make this team it won't be because of his blocking. IF he can offer other things then he has a place on this team.

There HAS to be a reason they havent given Rico any playing time. Is he not very coachable? Is his blocking that atrocious that they are scared hell get Dak killed? Or is just incompetent coaching? There has to be something because hes looked good in preseason.

Beasley may lead WR group, but I'm going with Zeke to lead the team in receiving.

@SiriusXMNFL: Stephen Jones on Dak improving: Dak is working on his game & accuracy. He has to trust the system. I think that was tough last year with @DezBryant in his ear. I think he'll have the year he had last year if not better! #Cowboys

@DezBryant: Here we go with that scapegoat shit.. i charged everything to the game and went the other way.. yall know what the real problem is .. dont put it on me with that bullshit.. garbage ass play calling.. Everybody lined up in the same spot for 17 weeks.

One of those things where someone takes things out of context to make a story

Jones actually said...

"He's gotta trust the system, which at times last year there was pressure, with Dez (Bryant) in his ear, to some degree Jason (Witten) in his ear, those great players want balls," Jones said. "And I think if he can get back to what we did the year before where we run the football consistently with Zeke (Elliott) and that great offensive line we have and let him really trust the system, work through his reads, which I think he'll do then I think he'll have...the type of year he had the year before."

Dez, of course, being Dez didn't look for the whole statement before blowing up

Couple post-#Cowboys visit thoughts:

1. I absolutely see why Chido is getting his hype. ⭐️

2. No idea what kind of weight it is, but Randy Gregory is noticeably thicker.

3. Jaylon is 100%. We can stop asking.

4. I bet all three Dallas QBs will be in the #NFL 8+ years.

@jonmachota: Zack Martin told he'll be remembered as the guy the Cowboys drafted instead of Johnny Manziel. "That's fine by me. I can live up to that."

The announcers didn't make too much of a point on the move that Gallup made. When he looked back for the ball, the DB did too. But Gallup streaked on to the endzone.

I like that he "glides" on the field. I think he is one of those who plays faster than he times. And he didn't time bad, it was in the 4.45 area I think. But to me he just has that gliding feel. Don't think he leads us in receiving this year, although it wouldn't surprise me at all, but I think year 2 he's our best wide out. It all depends on how he handles jamming at the line, that's the hardest thing for wr's to adjust to in the NFL imo. In college they have tons of those rail thin 5'9 guys who are purely cover and giving u 7 yards at the line of space. The nfl is obviously not like that at all.

I like to call it smooth speed. Straight line 40 times are great and all. But I tend to watch how players move in-game and in pads, and Gallup looked so smooth at CSU. That and is is highly rated by advanced stat trackers, like PFF, for however much you credit worth to that. He's a polished route runner and just gets it done. Hoping he continues to show out and earn the starting nod. I think he could be our best WR now and going forward.

I'm a fan of PFF and it's rankings. It's why I loved Gallup as a pick, and our new starting guard as well. Flemming from the pats, who we picked up, was a significant upgrade as a Tyron insurance policy as opposed to the garbage we had last year as well. I am with you on Gallup. He might be our best wideout now, but I think sadly he won't get the opportunity to lead us this year in catches/yards.
