Why The Dallas Cowboys Are Set To Give Defensive Coordinators Nightmares

    If you only read the blogs and websites which write about the , you'd probably think that their corps is top heavy.

    While the all star talented is the team's “WR1,” the relatively no-name players of , , , and more fill out the , so the Cowboys receivers don't usually get the respect they deserve.

    In 2016, however, Beasley emerged and became a household name around the league. Terrance Williams, despite some bone-headed mistakes early in the season, showed he can be a more than capable WR2 option, especially when surrounded by the talent they currently possess in Dallas.

    Plus, Williams is one of the league's better run blocking receivers, which is certainly important to the Cowboys run heavy .


    Though this opinion seems to only be held by the minority of , lent some credence to it with their 2016 grades. With Williams and Beasley coming in as the third and fourth highest graded wide outs respectively, PFF's grades would suggest the Cowboys' WR1 may not even be the most complete receiver on his team.

    However, we all know that sidelined and hobbled Bryant early last season, leading to a slow start before he re-gained form over the final eight games.

    The real point here is that there seems to be no way to effectively the Cowboys offense.

    You want to play conservatively against the pass and limit the big, downfield throws to Dez Bryant? Fine, here's a dose of one of the league's top offensive lines and .

    You want to load the box to force to beat you with his arm? Fine, we've all seen him to do it before, and the Cowboys are properly equipped on the outside for him to do it again.

    And, lastly, when the play breaks down, Prescott can and will make something out of nothing, even if he has to do it with his legs.

    Good luck dealing with this offense in 2017.

    I’m so excited for this season, because we get to see what Prescott can do in his second year with the continuity that the front office provided him by bringing back Williams and Butler, and by adding another potentially dynamic weapon to the offense in Ryan Switzer.

    I agree with you on Williams. He is a solid number two who does the little things so well for you that help you win games.

    Beasley is continuing to improve. Bryant is a top ten wide receiver, easily. Witten, while slowing down at his age is still a savvy route runner and can make plays in the passing game.

    A full season of Darren McFadden will be huge as he is still an effective runner (see 2015) and has always been a great pass catcher.

    This team is loaded on offense.
