Top 4 Offensive Players for Cowboys Through Two Weeks
I’ve broken down the film of the Cowboys’ first two games in 2012, and there really isn’t too much to be thrilled about on offense. Dez Bryant has played poorly, Jason Witten looks like he lost a step, and both offensive tackles are struggling. I think a lot of the struggles have to do with the play-calls as opposed to the quality of the players, but I’ve always thought that.
There are of course a few bright spots. At DMN, I graded the Cowboys’ top four players on offense through two weeks. I plan to do the defense tomorrow.
4. Miles Austin
Austin is the No. 2 wide receiver on the Cowboys. It might not seem like that through two games, but all you need to do is watch how opposing defensive coordinators play Dallas to see that they view Dez Bryant as a bigger threat. Austin has made the most of his opportunities thus far, however, hauling in 69.2 percent of his targets. That’s a great rate considering five of his targets have come at least 20 yards downfield and all but five have traveled at least 15 yards in the air.
