Mike McCarthy says Dallas is the best and most balanced offense they will have played to date. When Skp and JJT were debating the Vikings/Cowboys Skip whom I dislike said to JJT that he would take Witten, Austin, and our three running backs over Peterson and Harvey. He then said Dallas had more depth than that. And that got me to thinking.
"More" Last year half way through the season I could almost call the play that was going to be run. This year I'm surprised every week by a formation or player. The first few weeks it was a power running game, then it was a two tight end set that morphed into a three tight end set, and then there was Austin, and now there is Ogletree. We saw the Razorback and flanker screens this last week for the first time. There seems to be something new every week.
Skip is right, (uggggh) this team can line up with three tight ends and run over you, it can line up four wide and shoot it out with you, if you have a weakness the cowboys can exploit it.
The secret really isn't that secret, all of training camp the word was Bennett and Jones. We were installing offense around these two new weapons. Bennett has been a force in the running game and Felix has seen spot duty but nothing like we thought we would see. The secret is we've yet to see any of the offense they were working on in training camp, there is more to come.
