Cowboys Receiving Trio Could Reach Historical Mark

Miles Austin, Dez Bryant

Miles Austin could join Dez Bryant in reaching 1,000 receiving yards this year.

Until 2006, the Cowboys managed to have two receivers hit the 1,000-yard mark in the same season once. That occurred in 1979 when Tony Hill and Drew Pearson passed the mark.

Since 2006, the Cowboys have have four pairs reach 1,000 yards. This included Terry Glenn and Terrell Owens (2006), Owens and Jason Witten (2007), and Witten and Miles Austin (2009 and 2010).

It is possible that the Cowboys could have three receivers surpass 1,000 yards this year. Dez Bryant already has 1,028 yards. Witten has 880 yards, while Austin has 819. There are three games remaining, and two of the defenses (Saints and Redskins) are not especially good at defending the pass.

Below is a list of the 1,000-yard receivers in team history.

Dallas Cowboys Quotes: What’s the Deal with Martellus Bennett?

The year was 2008. The Cowboys had finished the previous season at 13-3 but lost the Giants in the playoffs. Nevertheless, many had the Cowboys pegged as a Super Bowl contender.

The team needed a receiver, though, given that Terry Glenn had played his final game. The other receivers were a 29-year-old Patrick Crayton and a 35-year-old Terrell Owens. Miles Austin wouldn’t break out for another year. Dallas took Felix Jones and Mike Jenkins in the first round and had the 61st overall pick, which was near the end of the second round.

And that was one heck of a second round: Jordy Nelson, Curtis Lofton, Matt Forte, DeSean Jackson, Ray Rice.

Dallas got Texas A&M tight end Martellus Bennett. In 9 games as a rookie, he had 4 TDs. Of course, after 48 games as a Cowboy he still had the same 4 TDs.

Over the first 9 games of the 2011 season, he had 6 receptions for 49 yards. He wasn’t close to scoring a touchdown.

It’s now 2012. Bennett plays for the Giants. After he caught 6 passes for 73 yards against the Panthers tonight, his totals for the season are now 15 receptions for 185 yards with 3 TDs.

So his performance thus far has more than a few people wondering if his failure here was more about the Cowboys failures or more about Bennett finding new life. Some quotes:

Zordon (no relation) on CowboysZone:

 This is getting ridiculous. Lets try to leave all of the off the field stuff out of this. What exactly is it that makes him have 4 touchdowns in 4 years in Dallas and 3 touchdowns in 3 games in New York? What the hell is it?! Is it the culture? Is it Romo vs Eli? Is it the coaches? I’m starting to wonder…my mind is literally blown by this. Please help me out b/c it’s depressing seeing him play like this for the enemy.

oneluv77 at DallasCowboys.com:

 Bennett has the physical tools, he young.. and we got nothing from him. Another wasted pick.

Yeah he’s dropped passes, but the Giant’s still called his number and he’s made key play’s.

It seems like he never played with confidence when he was here.

And a couple of tweets:

No, I’m certainly not asking anyone to agree with Skip.

Cowboys Release WR Terrell Owens After Three Seasons

terrell-owens.jpg

Three years after the Cowboys made a big splash in free agency by signing Terrell Owens, Dallas owner Jerry Jones has reportedly decided to release the receiver.

The move will apparently cost the Cowboys $9 million against the salary cap for next year, although other reports indicate that the move won’t be as costly because the Cowboys do not have to pay Owens’ roster bonus or base salary.

The Cowboys had a 31-17 record with Owens on the roster between 2006 and 2008. As far as statistics, he had a more productive three-year stretch than just about any other receiver in team history other than Michael Irvin. Here is a look:

Michael Irvin (1993-1995): 278 rec., 4,174 yards, 23 TDs
Terrell Owens (2006-2008): 235 rec., 3,587 yards, 38 TDs
Bob Hayes (1965-1967): 159 rec., 3,233 yards, 35 TDs
Tony Hill (1978-1980): 166 rec., 2,940 yards, 24 TDs
Drew Pearson (1974-1976): 166 rec., 2,715 yards, 16 TDs
Lance Rentzel (1967-1969): 155 rec., 2,965 yards, 26 TDs
Frank Clarke (1961-1963): 135 rec., 2,795 yards, 33 TDs

(To be sure, Hayes, Pearson, Rentzel, and Clarke compiled these stats during 14-game schedules instead of 16-game schedules)

There were, of course, many negatives associated with Owens, including dropped passes and his ability to cause disruptions in the locker room. On the other hand, the move leaves the Cowboys with Roy Williams as the top receiving threat, which is scary.

Cowboys Need to Change Their WR Strategy

During their dynasty in the 1990s, the Cowboys relied primarily on four players at the wide receiver position: Michael Irvin, Kelvin Martin, Alvin Harper, and Kevin Williams. Irvin, of course, dominated this group, but each of the others played vital roles during the Cowboys’ playoff runs between 1992 and 1996:

  • Harper made three of the greatest catches in team history during the 1992 and 1993 NFC Championship Games,
  • Martin was an effective punt returner who also caught the game-clinching touchdown to beat the 49ers in the 1992 NFC title game.
  • Williams started to come into his own late in 1995, helping to spark momentum that allowed the Cowboys to win their third title in four years.

Each of these four was drafted, and three of the four were drafted to meet specific needs. Irvin was expected to become a top-flight leading receiver, and he came through. Harper was expected to use his athleticism to make big plays, and he did. Williams was supposed to be a solid returner and good slot receiver, and he was.

Current teams have used a variety of approaches to adding their receivers. Some, such as New England, have had good fortune in the free agent market. Others, such as the Colts and Steelers, have devoted their attention to drafting their receivers. In the case of Indianapolis, Peyton Manning benefits not only from a great offensive system designed by coordinator Tom Moore, but he also has at his disposal three former first round draft picks in Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, and Anthony Gonzales, along with yet another first round pick at tight end with Dallas Clark.

Tony Romo has one receiver drafted by the Cowboys (in the seventh round, no less), along with two receivers who have cost the Cowboys more in dollars and draft picks than either are worth to the team. Other receivers are undrafted free agents who have shown some promise but who have not developed into full-time contributors.

In sum, it is well past time for Dallas to adopt a new strategy when it comes to the receiver position.

Since 1986, the Cowboys have spent 24 draft picks on receivers, including each of the four listed above. Two others– Mike Sherrard and Jimmy Smith— suffered through injury problems and left Dallas after just a few years. However, both were productive with other teams after leaving Dallas.

Michael Irvin’s suspension for the first five games of the 1996 season exposed the Cowboys’ lack of depth at receiver. The Cowboys brought Martin back to the team that year after he had played four seasons with Seattle and Philadelphia, but he was more of a complementary receiver than a primary threat. The same was true of Williams, who was injured ten games into the 1996 season and left for Arizona via free agency after that year.

The Cowboys tried to address their problems at receiver in 1997 by going the free agent route. Dallas signed receiver Anthony Miller in 1997, expecting the former big-play receiver to take pressure off of Irvin. Miller, however, was limited to 645 yards during a disappointing 6-10 campaign, and he never played again after that season.

The arrival of Chan Gailey in Dallas in 1998 led to the signing of former Steelers receiver Ernie Mills, who was not a bad slot receiver but who also did not take any pressure off of Irvin. The other starter in 1998 was an undrafted receiver named Billy Davis, who did not play badly but who was also not enough of a threat to give Irvin any relief.

In 1999, Dallas once again addressed the receiver problem through free agency, picking up former Carolina Panther Rocket Ismail. Ismail made a memorable play during his first game with the team, catching a 76-yard pass from Troy Aikman in overtime to give Dallas 41-35 win over the Redskins. It was one of the few big plays for Ismail in Dallas however, as he averaged only 14.4 yards per reception and scored only nine touchdowns, which were low numbers for someone expected to help spread the field.

It did not help Ismail or the Cowboys that Irvin was lost for good during the fourth game of the 1999 season. The Cowboys could have had the opportunity in 2000 to select Irvin’s replacement in the draft, but Dallas instead traded two first round picks to Seattle to obtain Joey Galloway. Galloway was supposed to team with Ismail to create nightmares for defensive coordinators, but the move was destined to failure thanks to an injury that Galloway suffered during his first game with the team in 2000. Ismail was also lost midway through the 2000 season, leaving Dallas with another free agent acquisition in James McKnight, who performed well enough to earn a free agent contract from Miami in 2001.

The Cowboys have apparently learned nothing from their past experiences in trying to find the right receiver through the free agency process. Galloway played three seasons in Dallas, none of which were as productive as he has been in Tampa Bay. Dallas has brought in Terry Glenn, Keyshawn Johnson, Terrell Owens, and Roy Williams, but none of these players has helped Dallas win so much as a single playoff game.

Granted, there are plenty of other reasons why Dallas has struggled in since 1996, but the failed strategy of trying to find receivers from other teams has not helped matters.

The focal point of the offseason for Dallas is apparently on continuity and team chemistry. The focus of the past couple of days has been on whether the team should release Owens, who has hurt the team’s chemistry.

Should the Cowboys release Owens, we should hope that the team also adopts a new approach to its receivers. Some teams have had some luck relying on free agent receivers to excel, but that strategy simply has not worked in Dallas. It’s about time Dallas started looking at teams such as Indianapolis and Pittsburgh, which have had pretty good fortune relying on the draft to build their receiving corps.

All About Terrell Owens

At one point in yesterday’s game, I noted in the chat room at The Blue and Silver that some team is going to put Terrell Owens in single coverage and shut him down, thus proving that he was over-the-hill.

That was about two plays before Tony Romo hit Owens on a 75-yard touchdown after Owens had burned Nate Clements, who is a quality corner (I think). I wanted to mention something about Owens dropping some passes in the first quarter, but then he had catches of 45 yards and 52 yards, along with a few shorter receptions, and there wasn’t much to complain about.

So, in honor of Owens return to glory, here are ten trivia questions about Owens:

Cowboys 35, 49ers 22: (Much to Our Chagrin) Terrell Owens Proves Himself Right

I have stood by my quasi-research proving that receivers make a sharp decline starting around the age of 34 or 35. That certainly didn’t hold up today, to say the least. A 36-year-old receiver named Isaac Bruce caught eight passes for 125 yards and a touchdown. Bruce’s performance was nothing, though, compared with the game that Terrell Owens had.

After Dallas had started slow and had fallen behind in the 1st quarter, Owens made the first play that gave Dallas the lead for good. Owens got behind Nate Clements and hauled in a 75-yard touchdown pass that gave the Cowboys a 7-6 lead.

If Owens wasn’t terribly impressive on shorter routes (he had two really bad drops), he made up for them on the deep routes.

With Dallas up 12-6 after a safety (see below) and field goal, Owens caught a 45-yarder that set up another Dallas field goal. Later, on the Cowboys’ first drive of the second half, Owens caught another pass for 52 yards. The play led to a touchdown that gave Dallas a 29-6 lead.

Owens finished with 213 receiving yards, which is tied for the fourth highest total in team history. It was the first time that a player had recorded 200 yards receiving since Kevin Williams in 1995 against Arizona.

Here is a list of the Cowboys’ players with 200 or more receiving yards in a game:

Date Player Yards Opp. Score
1966 Bob Hayes 246 Redskins W 31-30
1962 Frank Clarke 241 Redskins T 35-35
1967 Lance Rentzel 223 Redskins L 27-20
2008 Terrell Owens 213 49ers W 35-22
1979 Tony Hill 213 Eagles L 31-21
1992 Michael Irvin 210 Cardinals W 31-20
1989 James Dixon 203 Cardinals L 24-20
1995 Kevin Williams 203 Cardinals W 37-13

Tony Romo recorded his team-record 15th 300-yard game. His 341 yards was the second-highest total of his career, behind a 345-yard effort against the Giants in 2007.

And speaking of 2007, this game featured some of the ingredients that we saw in the 13-3 season last year: slow starts, big breaks, big plays, and then domination.

A big special teams play in the second quarter helped Dallas build more momentum after Owens scored his first touchdown. Carlos Polk blocked a punt attempt by Andy Lee. The ball went through the back of the end zone, giving Dallas a safety.

The last time Dallas blocked a punt was also at home against San Francisco. In 2002, Marcus Steele blocked a punt by Bill Lafleur.

The game wasn’t perfect by any means. The defense led San Francisco drive deep into Dallas territory twice in the first quarter, but the Cowboys turned the 49ers away both times (thanks partially to the referees not calling Anthony Henry for interference in the end zone). Henry and Terence Newman had trouble with Bruce, who had a great first half.

A Little Bit of Heresy: Is T.O.’s Age a Factor?

Terrell Owens getting old?

Is Terrell Owens getting old?

Now that the Cowboys have signed a big-name second receiver in Roy Williams, some assume that this means Terrell Owens will start producing the kinds of numbers we’ve seen from him in the past two seasons. However, Owens is at the exact age when many of the greatest receivers of all time started seeing a sharp decline in production. We hear how Owens is in such good shape, and many would dismiss the suggestion that his age (he turns 35 in December) has anything to do with his production this year, but consider the facts about players who have lasted until age 35 or more.

At his current pace, Owens would finish the season with 61 receptions for 979 yards and 13 touchdowns. This is a significant drop in production from the past two seasons, when he finished with more than 80 receptions and 1,000 yards in each season.

Below is a list of receivers ranked in the top 50 all-time in receptions. The focus of the information is on these players’ declines after reaching the age of 35.

1. Jerry Rice

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 40

It is odd to begin with Rice, because Rice performed pretty well after turning 34.  However consider the facts: from 1986 to 1996, Rice had 11 seasons where he gained 1,000 yards or more. He was injured in 1997 at the age of 35, then returned. After his return in 1998, he managed three more 1,000 seasons over the next seven years.

2. Cris Carter

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 35

Carter played until the age of 37, including a final year in Miami. He gained 1,274 yards at the age of 35 in 2000 but managed only 871 in 2001 at the age of 36.

3. Tim Brown

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 35

Brown had nine straight 1,000-yard seasons from 1993 to 2001. He was 35 in 2001 when he gained 1,165 yards. He had 960 in 2002 and declined from there.

4. Marvin Harrison

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 34

Harrison gained 1,366 yards during the Colts’ Super Bowl season of 2006. He had only 247 yards last year and is not on pace to surpass 1,000 yards this season.

5. Isaac Bruce

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 34

Bruce took a back seat to Torry Holt several years ago, but Bruce managed 1,098 yards at the age of 34 in 2006. He had 733 yards last season and is not on pace to surpass 1,000 yards this year as a member of the 49ers.

6. Andre Reed

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 32

Reed had a total of four 1,000-yard receiving seasons, with the last of them coming in 1996. He declined rapidly after that season.

7. Art Monk

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 34

Monk had a total of five 1,000-yard seasons with Washington. He gained 1,049 yards during the Redskins’ Super Bowl season of 1991, but he never came close to surpassing 1,000 yards after that.

8. Keenan McCardell

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 33

McCardell had five 1,000-yard seasons in Jacksonville and Tampa Bay, but after joining the Chargers at the age of 34, his production dropped. He had 917 yards at the age of 35 with San Diego, but less than 700 in the next two seasons combined.

9. Jimmy Smith

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 36

Smith recorded a 1,000-yard season during his final year, which is highly unusual. He gained 1,023 yards at the age of 36 in 2005.

10. Irving Fryar

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 35

Fryar did not have a 1,000-yard season until his eighth year in the league, but he got better with age. Between 1991 (age 29) and 1997 (age 35), he had five 1,000-yard seasons. After 1997, though, his production fell.

11. Rod Smith

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 35

Smith had eight 1,000-yard seasons, with the last coming in 2005 (1,105) at the age of 35.  He had only 512 yards in 2006.

12. Steve Largent

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 32

Largent had eight 1,000-yard seasons, but none after 1986 at the age of 32. He had only 403 yards at the age of 35 during his final season in 1989.

13. Henry Ellard

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 35

Ellard was like Fryar in some ways, continuing to find ways to stay productive after several seasons in the league. His production dropped off after gaining 1,014 yards at the age of 35 in 1996.

14. Keyshawn Johnson

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 30

Johnson had four 1,000-yard seasons by the age of 30, but none after that.

15. Eric Moulds

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 31

Moulds had four career 1,000-yard seasons, but none after gaining 1,043 yards at the age of 31 in 2004.

16. James Lofton

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 35

Lofton is an odd figure in this group. His production fell off after the 1985 season, and he was never a team’s primary threat after that. However, in 1991, he managed to gain 1,072 yards with the Bills at the age of 35.

17. Charlie Joiner

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 34

Joiner played much of his career in a 14-game schedule, so 1,000-yard seasons were less common.  Even so, his per-game production increased significantly in the late 1970s after he had turned 30. His final 1,000-yard season was in 1981 at the age of 34, though he came close a couple of times after that season.

18. Charley Taylor

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 25

Taylor played his entire career when teams threw less and when the league played 14-game schedules. He had only one 1,000-yard season but remained productive until the age of 34.

19. Don Maynard

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 33

Quite amazingly, Maynard had five 1,000-yard seasons despite playing in 14-game schedules (the AFL’s pass-happy ways helped). His decline started in 1969 at the age of 34.

20. Raymond Berry

Age during the last 1,000-yard receiving season: 27

Berry only had one 1,000-yard season. He was productive until the age of 33 but struggled at the age of 34 in his final season in 1967.

A Few Other Notables . . .

There are some other receivers worth mentioning:

Michael Irvin: Irvin’s final 1,000-yard season came at the age of 32 in 1998.

Joe Horn: Horn’s production began to fall after he gained 1,399 yards at the age of 32 in 2004.

John Stallworth: He had a huge season in 1984, gaining 1,395 yards at the age of 32. He declined after that point.

Drew Pearson: Pearson only had two 1,000-yard seasons, with the last coming in 1979 when he was 28.

Bob Hayes: Hayes’ stats are unusual. He had two 1,000-yard seasons to begin his career, but he never reached that mark after those first two seasons. His numbers declined rapidly after he turned 30.

Ranking Terrell Owens’ Two-Year Production

The Associated Press ran a piece today about Terrell Owens taking advantage of the depleted Cowboys’ receiving corps. Here is a little bit of that story:

Terrell Owens has an easy way for the Dallas Cowboys to hide their lack of proven receivers: Just throw it to him more.

“I did a lot of shoulder presses this summer,” Owens said, smiling. “I think I will be ready to shoulder the load.”

T.O. is always eager to be option Nos. 1, 2 and 3, and he might have to be at times during the opener Sunday in Cleveland. Because after Owens and fellow starter Patrick Crayton, Dallas has … not much.

Backups Miles Austin and Sam Hurd are out with ankle injuries, leaving only Isaiah Stanback, a college quarterback who didn’t play last season while learning his new position. He also was slowed by injuries, and is now battling a shoulder problem that will force him to wear a harness.

Of course, the Cowboys also have Jason Witten, whose 96 receptions last season are among the most by a tight end. But even his backups are iffy — rookie Martellus Bennett and Tony Curtis (three catches in two seasons, although all for touchdowns).

Then there are the running backs. Marion Barber caught 44 passes last season, but his two backups are rookies and the fullback, Deon Anderson, has only six catches.

The circumstances could very well mean that Owens could improve on his 2007 season when he caught 81 passes for 1355 yards and 15 TDs. In team history, only Michael Irvin has had two consecutive seasons that were more productive than Owens’ production in 2006-2007 in terms of total numbers. On the other hand, the Cowboys in their history have never produced the type of passing numbers that they have in the past five years or so.
