After the fourth game of the season it is completely obvious that the Cowboys are in desperate need of a playmaking receiver. Just a thought, last time I checked Matt Jones was still available. Jerry Jones needs to bite the bullet and bring this guy in. At the very least, the guy comes in and does exactly what the rest of these wide receivers are doing……..Nothing.
Then again, maybe the answer lies within the organization. It seems to me that the only thing that the Cowboys had to cheer about this past preseason was the unexpected play of rookie free agent receiver Kevin Ogletree. I have yet to see the rookie on the field during the regular season, but would definitely like to. Who knows, the young player that has everything to gain and nothing to lose could provide the spark that this team needs in the passing game. The fact is right now, Jason Witten is drawing the double coverage and the wide receivers are not beating the single coverage. And if the receivers can’t beat single coverage, then this team is in grave danger of finishing with a losing record for the first time in quite a while.
Whether the Cowboys hit the free agent market and sign a guy like Matt Jones, or they give the rookie free agent a shot when it counts, they absolutely need to do something in a hurry. If the offense continues to be non-productive in the passing game, teams are going to start loading the box and taking away the only threat the Cowboys offense poses, the run game. Make a move Jerry, the time is now!
