Connor Williams Jersey
Dak Prescott has the fewest throws of at least 15 yards down the field among quarterbacks who have played all three games this season.It isn't really news to the leader of the Dallas Cowboys."I don't think we've just attacked that area enough Youth Taco Charlton Jersey , simple as that," Prescott said after a 24-13 loss to Seattle on Sunday. "I don't necessarily say they're taking it away as much as we haven't tried them enough. You can put it on me. I guess I just need to push the ball down the field more."Whether it's play-calling, blocking or a group of receivers looking woefully ill-equipped to replace the All-Pro version of Dez Bryant, the Cowboys' passing game is broken — even when Ezekiel Elliott has his first 100-yard rushing game of the season.Prescott, who has completed just three of 10 passes at least 15 yards downfield, had his fifth straight game of fewer than 200 yards with at least 25 passes going back to last season. The Cowboys haven't had that long a run of inefficiency in the passing game in 15 years.If it's any consolation, Quincy Carter-led Dallas made the playoffs despite that ineptitude in 2003, although those Cowboys were quickly bounced in the wild-card round because of their stagnant offense.These Cowboys (1-2) don't look anything like a playoff team with this offense. They play Detroit (1-2) on Sunday at home with the Lions coming off a stirring win at home against New England."I don't see anybody in that room that will accept that we can't do better offensively no matter what the conditions are — on the road or otherwise," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. "It's pretty obvious that all day long, we were disjointed and just couldn't make it happen."Cole Beasley is the only receiver with 100 yards for the season (132). Newcomer Deonte Thompson, supposedly a speed threat on the outside, is averaging 9.2 yards on nine catches.Tavon Austin, acquired in a trade during the draft, has the only catch of more than 20 yards — a 64-yard touchdown on the third play of Dallas' win over the New York Giants. His other four catches are for 17 yards.Austin has the only two receiving touchdowns for Dallas. The second was on a 3-yard shovel pass with the Cowboys trailing the Seahawks 24-6 in the fourth quarter.Geoff Swaim has been solid trying to replace 15-year tight end Jason Witten, who retired to go into broadcasting. He led the Cowboys with five catches for 47 yards against the Seahawks."We have to be more efficient and we have to be more explosive throwing the ball," coach Jason Garrett said Monday. "There are a lot of components to it. There's a protection component. There's a decision-making component. There's a throw and catch component. There's a winning on the route component."With 127 yards http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/au...sch-jersey , Elliott had his best rushing total since before his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations last season. But the 2016 All-Pro had two of the biggest mistakes of the game.First, Elliott stepped out of bounds before making the catch on what would have been a tying 31-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Then he fumbled at the end of a 26-yard run — his longest of the season — to kill a promising drive early in the fourth quarter.Elliott's mistakes will be magnified until more playmakers, if any, emerge around him. None of the receivers or tight ends appears close to doing that so far."People can say whatever, but at the end of the day, but you know, when you've got that ball in your hand, that's the team in your hand," Elliott said. "Me being a leader on the team, I've got to do a better job of taking care of the ball. I mean, that cost us the game."Elliott still isn't getting much help from the passing game, though.NOTES: Garrett said LB Sean Lee was sidelined against the Seahawks by tightness to his hamstring that wasn't injured going into the game. He had been limited during the week by a hamstring injury.Corrects score from previous version to 24-13 instead of 23-14. The Minnesota Vikings have almost every key player back from the 2017 team that won 14 games and went to the NFC championship game.Their new quarterback, Kirk Cousins , is playing up to his big contract. They're one kick away from starting this season unbeaten.For all their strengths and stability, let alone dwindling space under the salary cap, the Vikings still sought upgrades at three positions in the three days that passed since their 29-29 tie at Green Bay .They signed kicker Dan Bailey after cutting their fifth-round draft pick Connor Williams Jersey , Daniel Carlson, following his three missed field goals against the Packers.They dropped wide receiver Stacy Coley, a seventh-rounder in 2017, in favor of Aldrick Robinson for a more experienced backup. When defensive tackle Tom Johnson became available, they brought him back to spell Sheldon Richardson and let David Parry go."I wanted to go somewhere that had an opportunity https://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/...sch-jersey to win and be a part of an organization that's right there and right on the brink of having a lot of success," said Bailey, who like Johnson had offers from multiple teams. "When this situation came up, it fit the bill perfectly."Such cutthroat competition is commonplace in the NFL, of course, but nonetheless indicative of the all-in approach the front office has applied in 2018 in pursuit of a Super Bowl.There's little appetite this fall for leaving one of those 53 precious spots on the roster for a developmental purpose, if it can be used instead for a player who'll contribute to the current team.When the opening week rosters were established, the Vikings had the youngest average age in the NFC. But they replaced Carlson (23) with Bailey (30), Parry (26) with Johnson (34) and Coley (24) with Robinson, who will turn 30 on Monday.Coach Mike Zimmer even texted general manager Rick Spielman and some of the other evaluators this week with this message: "Thank you for trying to get some more players in here."Zimmer added: "It's great to see. We felt like we needed to make some moves after that game."Carlson was going to have a hard time recovering from his performance in Green Bay. Coley made a couple of less-obvious mistakes, but coupled with some costly dropped passes by fellow wide receiver Laquon Treadwell in that game, the Vikings were understandably concerned about their depth behind stars Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen.Then Johnson suddenly became available after his release by Seattle Authentic Joe Looney Jersey , and the Vikings seized on the opportunity to add a player who was good enough to start for the league's top-ranked defense last season in a reserve role.Johnson became a free agent and picked the Seahawks after the Vikings signed Richardson. The Seahawks told Johnson they preferred to re-sign him, after dropping him from the roster to accommodate the promotion of a player from the practice squad."I guess they didn't think I was going to get as much interest as I got," Johnson said, adding: "It's something that I wasn't expecting, as far the better situation that I'm in. I'm taking full advantage of it."The same goes for Bailey, who was cut by the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 1 in a cost-cutting move after he struggled in 2017 down the stretch of his seventh NFL season following a groin injury."Hopefully," Zimmer said, knocking his knuckles against the podium, "he's really, really good for us."The coach hoped aloud that Bailey would solidify the position the same way Cousins has at quarterback, after the carousel that has spun at both spots since Zimmer arrived in 2014."For me it was about being patient and waiting for the right opportunity," Bailey said."It's hard to say if I would have waited longer, but that was my game plan going into it. I'm fortunate this opportunity came up, and I took advantage."
