COWBOYS WORKING ON WRINKLES: Jason Witten confident that opportunities are coming for Dallas’ offense

COWBOYS WORKING OUT WRINKLES - Jason Witten confident that opportunities are coming for 2013-2014 Dallas Cowboys offense

Jason Witten said it’s frustrating when he and Dez Bryant get coverage that limits them, but he said the Dallas Cowboys coaches are working on wrinkles to solve that.

“It’s been tough with the coverage we have seen,” he said. “When the opportunities are limited, it makes it tough. We will work through that. The bye comes at a good time to get guys healthy and review and try to get a couple wrinkles.”

But Witten said it’s not up to the system as much as the players.

“At times, the execution has been there. We have seen success,” Witten said. “But overall, it hasn’t been good enough. We have to do a better job of it. We feel confidence in the system and the players within the system. That’s what’s good about the system. It’s held up for a long time. We have to continue to work within it.”

Witten said Jason Garrett emphasized the opportunity the Dallas Cowboys have at the top of the NFC East.

“Obviously, we know we have to play a lot better football if we want to win this division,” Witten said. “We have a great opportunity to reflect on that and say, ‘We know we have to play better, here is how we are going to do it,’ and just execute. As an offense, our focus is to find ways to do those things. There are all kinds of wrinkles of putting guys in different situations and plays, but ultimately, us executing this system we have had success in and been a powerful offense.”

    I know what Witt is doing, but this has not been an execution problem. Not even close. Very bad plays, and alignments. You try different plays to get Dez and Witt open, you dont EXPECT them to beat the doubleteams. You dont use 5 wide….Rotating Dez in and out of the slot, motioning him, changing right to left. Thats what you do.

    1. You might get a lot of resistance on the ‘execution’ part of this. Drops, bad throws, and mistiming all play into the execution issues they’ve faced since the Denver game. I know for a fact that the coaches have taken an in-depth look at the offensive plays thru the first 10 games and that they’ll formulate a plan with higher percentage success rates going forward. Your criticism about the double teams, 5 wide, rotation with Dez, motion, and alignment are spot on. Improving the base formation with Murray and at least one other blocker will go a long way.
