As planned, the Dallas Cowboys used their bye week to re-evaluate the offense, owner and general manager Jerry Jones told 105.3-FM The Fan on Tuesday.
“I think we went to the drawing board and looked at what we could do offensively,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t believe that’s giving away too much. I think we can do a better job of keying in on who we want to have the ball.”
At the top of the list of “who we want to have the ball” are receiver Dez Bryant and tight end Jason Witten. Bryant and Witten combined for just three catches in the 49-17 loss to the Saints. Bryant was targeted just twice, a number that offensive coordinator Bill Callahan called “unacceptable” going into the bye.
“I think they probably worked on those combinations, where to line those guys up,” Jones said. “I think the thought process was where to line those guys up and how to maximize their skill and get better match-ups.”
