Jean-Jacques Taylor, Cowboys insider for NBC 5 in Dallas-Fort Worth (KXAS-TV) and host of J Dub City 9 a.m.-1 p.m. weekdays on 103.3 KESN-FM, answered your questions in a live chat recently. Here are some highlights.
Question: Is it time for the Cowboys to cut or trade Dez Bryant?
JJT: What‘s the rush? There is none. Either he‘s going to take a pay cut or he‘s not. It ain’t complicated. If he does, he‘ll probably be here. If he balks, he‘ll play somewhere else. I do know that if you listen to club Vice President Stephen Jones it sounds like this is not an idea to be debated. The question is how much can they cut Bryant‘s money without losing him mentally.
Question: Is the Cowboys offense too simplistic? How can it be improved?
JJT: Simplicity, I keep telling y‘all, is not the biggest problem. The Patriots‘ offense is not all that complicated. The Cowboys‘ problem is when their offense bogs down, they don‘t have any answers. Rub routes, crossing routes, and bunch concepts are good ways to get receivers open through scheme - and the Cowboys need to do a lot more of that.
