Hall of Fame wide receiver Michael Irvin had some major criticism for playcaller Scott Linehan after the Dallas Cowboys dropped their second straight game on Sunday, with a 28-17 defeat at the hands of the Arizona Cardinals.
"Stop staggering the receivers and let’s start bunch-setting the receivers and start running double-in routes and double-out routes," Irvin told 105.3-FM The Fan, via The Dallas Morning News. "Once you bunch the receivers, now I got the corners having to play off, and inside and out."
"All we’re doing is lining guys up, one right, one left and playing football. You saw what Arizona does. They are bunching their receivers, they’re helping those receivers get off that bump and get off that jam with all kinds of bunch sets and double-in routes and double-out routes. It’s impossible to cover them, and we haven’t gone to it yet. It blows my mind."
Jason Witten was the Cowboys’ leading receiver on Sunday, with 62 yards. Running back Lance Dunbar was actually second, with 52 yards.
