In my opinion, the Dallas Cowboys did a good thing by releasing Terrell Owens earlier this year. Yes he scored touchdowns, but he also had a lot of crucial dropped passes. By releasing him they have now made way for the younger receivers to show what they can do.
We will now rely on WR Roy Williams who did a lot of great things while in Detroit. He will be the number one receiver. We also have Patrick Crayton. In my opinion, Crayton will only be an average receiver because he tends to make crucial mistakes.
It’s time that our young receivers step up and show that they have made progress since they have joined the Cowboys. Miles Austin has shown flashes of being a good receiver; he has speed and can make the clutch catch. Sam Hurd had made catches, although he is not that fast and he has been hurt. So far, he has not really convinced me that he will be great.
Then we have the often injured Isaiah Stanback. I believe the Cowboys should go ahead and let this guy go. He has tried to make the switch from QB to WR. While he may have been successful, with him being injured every year, it’s hard to say if he could pull it off. We could release him to make room for another receiver or at least another player that could help us now.
It remains to be seen whether these young receivers will fulfill the promise they have shown. If not, we may be looking for a couple more receivers later this year and another average season may be what we get.
