Cole Beasley took to the always-understanding place of Twitter on Tuesday Jay Novacek Jersey Stitched , and when he did he caused quite a stir.This is the world in 2019. If you’re an athlete or public figure the words you say are going to generate reactions from a lot of people. Beasley is a longtime veteran of the Dallas Cowboys and knows this quite well.Beasley made it a point to say that the targets on the Cowboys are determined by the front office. Here is his original tweet (there were a few others afterwards) plus what he put out on Wednesday after almost 24 hours of it cycling around.This was a confusing point as it’s not necessarily borne out by the statistics. The Cowboys traded for Amari Cooper and that changed the way all of their receivers were used, that’s the only influence that the front office had.It wasn’t just fans of the Dallas Cowboys that reacted to Cole’s thoughts, and it wasn’t even just media members. The aforementioned front office themselves had some thoughts as Stephen Jones appeared on the Rich Eisen Show on Wednesday. Here’s what he had to say.Beasley saying most recently that he’s not mad and that he just wants to help his team win is great to see, but it doesn’t exactly wipe away his original comments. He is going to be a free agent this offseason and he’s completely entitled to explore whatever options he feels best benefit him, he should be encouraged to do so, this all just feels like a walk-back of sorts.What do you think? 3rd and 14. The Dallas Cowboys are at the Seattle Seahawks 17-yard line with 2:34 left on the clock in a Wild Card playoff game. Dallas clings to a three-point lead, 17-14, and look destined to kick a field goal to go up 20-14. That would have perfectly set up Russell Wilson to drive the field and break the hearts of Cowboys fans everywhere with a last-second, game-winning touchdown. There aren’t a lot of good plays to convert a 3rd and 14. I can guarantee you almost no one thought a quarterback draw would be a good call. A fade to the end zone maybe. Perhaps some kind of screen. Flood a zone on a roll out is a possibility. So many options that involve passing, but not a lot of chance at success. Scott Linehan shocked us all with a quarterback draw. And Dak Prescott made it happen. He ran for 16 yards to convert the first down and set the Cowboys up for an easy touchdown one play later. End result, Cowboys Nation thrills to Dak Prescott’s conversion Youth Michael Irvin Jersey , and Linehan’s call is not pilloried.But, imagine if Prescott was unable to pull off those heroics and the Cowboys failed to convert. Linehan would be facing the slings and arrows of the rowdy Cowboys fanbase. They would say the Cowboys just gave up on the play. That the Cowboys didn’t even give themselves a chance by slinging the ball into the end zone. Maybe make a miraculous reception or pick up a defensive penalty to convert the first down. And that rowdy fanbase would be within their rights to howl and scream over a quarterback draw on 3rd and 14. Of all the low percentage plays there, quarterback draw is probably among the lowest.But when it works, when you catch the defense by surprise, and when your quarterback breaks a tackle and goes airborne to get the the first down - the play-call is golden, gutsy, a gem. Sometimes the difference between a bad play-call, and a gutsy one, is execution.Congrats to Dak Prescott, no one owes you more than Scott Linehan. Custom Tennessee Titans Jerseys
