Cowboys receivers getting used to new coach - Calvin Watkins, ESPN Dallas
Looks like new wide receivers coach is putting a lot of emphasis on technique, according to Dwayne Harris. Calvin Watkins writes that Harris didn't see former WR coach Jimmy Robinson as much of a technician as new WR coach Derek Dooley.

"A lot different," Harris said. "Jimmy was more of a receivers coach. Dooley is more of a technician. He wants us to get our routes (down), I think Robinson was a different type of coach. It wasn’t about technique with him, just play football."

More emphasis on technique? That's got to be a good thing.
