Pick your poison on 3rd down red zone shots.

How can you cover Thomas, Bryant and Kamara. Throw Ingram and Watson on the field at the same time and you have open lanes to run as you can't stack the line and if you go all out on the big three Ben Watson will be open.

Bryant isn't gonna be a 10 reception 150 yards 2 TDs type of guy much but I could easy see 3-4 Receptions for 30-40 yards and a TD regular

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

You can kinda see why Dez was unhappy and outspoken in Jerrys World.
It's frustrating playing for a Puppet Coach and having to bow to the Sky Box.
I believe this guy's a player and he was in the middle of Cowboy politics.
Even the Cows Favorite Son Troy Aikman just spoke out about the dysfunctions
of the team and the need to shake up Jerrys World.

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

We will see how it goes. He will start off as strictly a role-player because he doesn't know the offense yet. If he does well in a limited role there is upside as the season goes on. Because outside of his rookie year when Miles Austin was the #1, he probably hasn't seen much single coverage throughout his whole college and pro career. He'll get that here with #13, #9 and #41 among others doing their thing.

By the end of the season we’ll probably bring Ted Ginn back from IR and we’ll be rolling out Thomas, Bryant, Smith and Ginn. I like that.

Re: Dez Bryant Signing With Saints

Well we had to do something...

I think Sean knows we exposed a weakness to other teams and that is we are very week at WR. No WR outside of MT is getting the job done. No one is even averaging 2 catches a game. This shouldn't be at all. Those younger WR's better feel the heat now. Look you aren't going to get open and make plays we'll have to find someone else.

Reckon this move shows an element of conceding our defence will not make it to top 10 this year. I think we understand there is a lot of talent on the D but just falls short of Super Bowl standard. Bryant gives Brees another weapon so our offence might have to bring us home if we are to go all the way. If our D does end up clicking, itís all over!!

I'm not so sure that's the reason. Honestly the #2 and #3 WR are likely Brees' 3rd or 4th read in many plays behind Thomas, Kamara/Ingram, and Watson. T Smith and Meridith may be doing everything right running their routes but Brees has already pulled the trigger on the ball.

An example of that is Brees' 500th TD pass against Washington. One analyst (David Carr I believe) pointed out that T. Smith's route was designed to clear out a space. He wasn't the primary target for the ball. Kamara was. But when J. Norman decided to jump the route, Brees fired the ball to Smith. Point is that even if Smith and Norman had both done everything right on the play, that Smith would have never gotten the ball.

We'll likely see some of that with Dez too, where his mere presence will force the defense to commit additional personnel, thus freeing up other playmakers.

Only Atlanta choked in an unchokable situation... Life is definitely good.
