Miles Austin, We've Missed You

   One game into the Cowboys’ season and one thing is abundantly clear: Dez Bryant needs to be mature and Miles Austin needs to be ready.
   As did the New York Giants last weekend, the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday and the rest of the NFL the remainder of the season, defenses are going to focus their attention on Bryant. The Giants always had a safety lurking and a cornerback in front of Bryant, in what amounted to double-coverage. Bryant held his composure and managed his frustration during a minimally impactful four-catch night.
   “Hey, I got my stats through Witt, through Miles, through Tony and the rest of the other guys,” Bryant said. “The Giants respected me. Everybody across this world knows what I can do. And they know, if the ball is thrown my way, I’m going to get to it. I don’t care if it’s double-coverage, triple or whatever. But we play smart football here. We want to win.”
   The attention to Bryant and future Hall-of-Fame tight end Jason Witten spawns an obvious byproduct: Miles is open.

  1. Insightful....and you're right, the Cowboys need Austin to be a consistently healthy 1A to make the offense click and be able to make those clutch first down catches and the occasional game breaker when Dez is doubled. Harris, Beasley and eventually Terrance Williams are nice ancillary pieces in the offense, but none are quite ready to successfully fill that role in my opinion.
