DMN Blog: Michael Irvin has a notion for Cowboys WR situation

By Barry Horn/Reporter

Michael Irvin, back from barely surviving another round on Dancing With The Stars, got all Xs and Os on his ESPN Radio show this morning about the Cowboys wide receiver situation. And if Irvin knows one thing in this world it is how to play WR.

I think he concluded that Miles Austin should remain the "X receiver," the big play outside wide receiver, and the returning Roy Williams be moved to the "Y receiver" and run routes mostly from the slot. Williams is not the prototype slot but that could be used to the Cowboys advantage. Irvin said he can only hope the Cowboys are game planning that way right now.
