    Youíre absolutely right. We do lack elite speed on offense, aside from Zeke. The real test comes with Linehan finding ways to take advantage of said speed.

    And even Zeke was more young than fast as a rookie. Combine speed vs actual field speed varies for backs more than just about any other skill position.

    Backs like Zeke take a beating. Some can still turn on the jets late in games when theyíre beat down, others canít.

    Regardless, being young helps, and Zekes had over 1200 touches the last four years wearing away at that youth.

    We might lack elite speed but we got a lot faster this off season. Dez and Witten were slow. Guys like Gallup, Wilson and Schultz might not be burners but they are definitely faster. Same with really any of our TEs. And obviously Austin and Thompson are elite speed guys.

    Absolutely got a lot faster all around. Getting younger really, really helps general team speed in addition to replacing Dez and Witten specifically.

    Sadly true, subtracting the age and slowness necessarily makes us faster. We got faster the moment they were off the roster.

    First in one category and last in another. There seems to be no middle ground with Austin.

    Austinís stats and growth have been severely limited by his environment.

    He needs accurate ball placement that allows him to catch the ball while facing the end zone.

    In Dallas itís all about comebacks with the WR stopping to face the QB, especially in the slot. We donít lead WRs open and upfield like Austin needs.
