Q: What has happened to Cole Beasley? Just doesn't seem like he's being targeted or utilized this year in our pass game. Do you think this is a function of our backup's just not reading the field as quickly or not reading it right? Seems like he runs good routes from my layman's perspective.
A: It’s become incredibly obvious during this stretch that Tony Romo is to thank for a lot of Beasley’s success in this offense. I’m not trying to pile on the guy, but it apparently takes an All-Pro caliber quarterback to consistently find him. Very rarely is he the first read on a play, and Matt Cassel and Brandon Weeden haven’t been able to go through those progressions.
