    Irving and Martin both expected to be at mini camp, neither might do team drills Garrett said but both present and doing indv work.
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys’ doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice

    Two thoughts: 1) How much good money after bad did Jerry throw at incompetent coaches over the years? 2) With regard to Lal, it's great he is trying to teach these guys something, but Cincy WRs never tore it up despite having AJ Green. Spring is hope selling season.

    When did Lal ever work for the Bengals?

    My bad: Lal worked for Oak, NYJ and Ind before here. While he didnt have great talent to work with, or great QBs in Oak at the time or NYJ, it does not appear the WR play was elevated either. All it talks about on his Wikipedia page is the scrubs he worked with and improved in Oakland. To be fair Al Davis was still alive then and we know what a shit show that was.

    im sure a new voice is helpful after the same ol, same ol for 4 yrs

    i also believe it makes a huge difference not havign dez in the room. his demeanor, his body language, his "passion". and that is compounded because he had been with the team longer than most coaches, and he has a stronger tie to jerry. dez was too powerful in that WR room. hopefully TWill is next out the door if he doesnt smarten the fuck up

    gil brandt's observations (via twitter):

    A few notes from Cowboys minicamp:
    • Noticeably more enthusiasm than at this time last year. The malaise that sat over team in 2017 appeared gone, at least for 1 day.
    • Three really solid coaching additions (OL Paul Alexander, WR Sanjay Lal, DB Kris Richard) + one promotion (QB Kellen Moore). All should pay dividends this season and beyond.
    • Two players stood out to me:
      TE Blake Jarwin - No one will replace Witten but Jarwin is a good player w/ big hands. Cupboard wasn't left bare
      DB Chidobe Awuzie - Looks like he can play S or CB and is real deal. Should have breakout year.

    Curious about Jarwin. Didnt really play last year but players normally make biggest improvement between year 1 and 2. If he is even a serviceable NFL player it would be a win.

    Witten has been talking this guy up almost since the day he showed up here.

    Jarwin was the guy the Eagles wanted off our PS and we signed him to our active roster even though he really didn't have a role.

    If they have someone or a combination of guys that can occasionally get open and maybe they (combined) nab 40-50 balls, 3-5 tds and provide above average to good blocking, that's all they really need.

    I really think we're going to see Elliott catch 60-75 balls this year, and it wouldn't shock me if ultimately he ended up leading the team in receptions. I doubt we have any WR or TE catch more than 50-60 balls this year, but we could see several guys catch 50+ each.
