    you think he has to be better? as though his resume is soft/light ? He comes from a respected TE factory program at Stanford.

      It's Booze. But Schultz needs to show more as a receiver. He didn't do much at Stanford in that area. He was a strong blocker though. I don't think we will have any problem with blocking TEs. My concern is having a TE who is a threat in the passing game but Witten wasn't much of that anymore anyway.

        Witten dropped 2 YPC beginning in 2015.

        Funny.

        I'm sure all of our pass catchers just happened to go to shit at the same time. I'm sure it wasn't the common denominator that began in 2015.

        I'm sure it's all about TE ability and any old pass catchers can replace Witten.

            Of course a lot of this is on Dak as well. He needs to be better and build a rapport with this new group of WRs and TEs. If he's as good as many make him out to be he has to find a way to elevate the play of his teammates. Other top QBs do it all the time. Even here in Dallas Romo had the ability to transform WRs who were typically categorized as JAGS into a quality threats in the passing game. Patrick Crayton, Miles Austin, Laurent Robinson, etc.

            The coaching staff needs to be better as well. When practically all of your game day WRs gripe about the system being too predictable, you might want reevaluate your scheme. There were far too many instances where DBs were practically running the routes of the Cowboys receivers.

              Exactly right.

                Right on point. The WR position isn’t as critical as some let on. If Dak up to his game potential the receivers will be fine. It’s more about the QB than receivers.

                  Call me an asshole, but Witten's faith does not mean a lot to me.

                      He was also hyper-competitive. I don't buy he took an active role in making sure that Fasano, Bennett (especially) and Escobar developed to succeed along with him. He was a bit of a ball hog, just like any other diva receiver. He had Romo's eye for years.

                      Granted, it was not his job to mentor anyone. But for people to assume he is just this saint is just not true. He was as cut throat as anyone. And that was not really a bad thing overall. He was a player that had a standard and that is needed.

                      But in recent years, it was pretty clear the role he and also Romo had. They were in the family portrait. There is no denying that.

                        You're right on this, and by "nice" I meant his media persona and general public demeanor, especially when discussing anyone on his own team.

                        And you freaking want your players to be aggressively cut throat and competitive, BTW. Makes for a tougher team frankly.

                          I can’t recall Witten ever having a tantrum on the sideline or getting upset about anyone but himself. I can’t tell you when I have ever seen a better team player than him. The few times he has been upset it was usually about something he did that he wasn’t happy about. Players of his caliber are few and far between,

                            If you're bitching about Jason Witten, you are just looking for things to bitch about. I wish we had more players just like him on the team. If we did, we'd be competing for super bowls.
