in a training camp practice Cheap Cole Beasley Jersey , including an ill-advised pass across the field to a receiver just a few yards from the line of scrimmage.Those picks, and the decisions that go with them, are under more scrutiny after the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback followed his remarkable rookie season with a somewhat pedestrian encore. And Prescott is among those doing the scrutinizing — each night at camp in the film room."When I go back, I'm being super-critical of myself, of the throws, of the placement, of where I should have went with the ball," Prescott said Sunday. "I'm tough on myself. So when I go back tonight, all of that was OK, it's got to better and this is why it's got to better. And I take my notes and I move forward."With the release of three-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant and the retirement of 15-year tight end Jason Witten , Prescott is working with a revamped group of receivers and unproven batch of tight ends.The resulting rough patches for the passing game after a week and a half in California aren't surprising, but notable nonetheless considering how the offense usually appears to be ahead of the defense with the Cowboys this time of year."The best teams I've been on are where it's back and forth all day and everybody is just competing and battling and no one really dominates the whole day," coach Jason Garrett said. "The other side competes back and challenges back and fights back. That's what we've had really throughout training camp."There's a reality facing Prescott Youth Chidobe Awuzie Jersey , though.Two years ago, he set an NFL rookie record for passer rating and was voted the league's offensive rookie of the year for a team that finished with an NFC-best 13 wins. In 2017, the interceptions more than tripled (from four to 13), the passer rating dropped by almost 20 points and the Cowboys missed the playoffs at 9-7.Some will point to running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations, which started halfway through the season just as Prescott and the Cowboys were looking good enough for another playoff trip.Others will remind of injuries that sidelined left tackle Tyron Smith for three games, a big reason the offensive line didn't live up to its reputation as one of the best in the league.Regardless, the onus will be on Prescott to keep defenses honest with the Cowboys making no secret of building their offense around Elliott, Prescott's fellow rookie star who led the NFL in rushing that season."We have a lot of knew kinks here and there that is going to help everything else," Prescott said. "It's going to help our running game. It's going to help our play-action game out. As long as we've all bought into the offensive system, it is going to pay off."Of the two key free agents Dallas signed at receiver, Allen Hurns has missed some time with leg discomfort and Deonte Thompson hasn't practiced at all because of Achilles heel soreness.Terrance Williams, the second-longest tenured Dallas receiver behind Cole Beasley, is working back slowly from offseason surgery for a broken foot.Rookie Michael Gallup http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/chris-jones-jersey-cheap , a third-rounder who was the team's first draft choice at receiver after dumping Bryant, has shown promise in camp. That's a sampling of the collection the Cowboys hope to use to replace Bryant — and develop a rapport with Prescott."It's challenging, but it's not tough," Prescott said. "That is what you want. Those guys are going to be rotating in the game. So we have to go ahead and get in out here ... so I can gain chemistry with all of them and figure out who is a guy I can call on in that time."The Cowboys have to decide how much time to give Prescott and his new receivers in the preseason, starting Thursday night at San Francisco.Last year, with Prescott coming off his sparkling debut, he played just two exhibition games. If the Cowboys follow the same plan, Prescott will skip the 49ers game. But it would be easy to argue that the Dallas passing game needs the work."It is important for those guys to play together," Garrett said. "You want to be a careful of putting them in the situation where it's ultimately not going to be productive for your team. So you want to find your spots in practice and preseason games to get them quality work."The quality has been lacking at times in camp. It wasn’t exactly an explosive stat line that will be featured on SportsCenter or anything. In fact, the numbers were pretty ordinary. In his first game with the Dallas Cowboys, Amari Cooper caught five passes for 58 yards and one touchdown. Wide receivers, even pedestrian ones, turn in that kind of line on a regular basis around the NFL.So while we’re not going to say that the trade of a first-round pick was worth it just yet Cheap Sean Lee Jersey , we will say that Cooper was the Cowboys best receiver on the field and looks like he can produce, as long as his quarterback and offensive coordinator help him along. Jerry Jones was pleased with Cooper’s first game.Dak Prescott called him a mismatch.Cooper played roughly 80% of the offensive snaps, which is impressive in itself considering he just arrived with the team two weeks ago. The Cowboys lined Cooper up in various spots during the game, on the outside and in the slot along with moving to the right and left sides of the formation. Cooper had eight targets on the game, and that was a team-high but for this offense to get going they may have to feed him more. Except when he’s double-covered in the end zone. At that point, Dak Prescott, you may want to check it down to the open guy or at least throw it out of the back of the end zone.Cooper is quick getting in and out of his breaks during a route. He looks like Cole Beasley, only bigger. Check out the footwork and quickness in tight spaces on these routes.There was enough from Amari Cooper in this game to believe that he can be a weapon on offense and justify the trade down the road. The issue isn’t Cooper, but those around him. Dak Prescott, Scott Linehan and Jason Garrett are the guys that can hold Cooper back. If they don’t improve quickly, it will be Cooper catching passes and listening to play-calls from different people in the not-so-distant Cowboys future.
