Rico Gathers scores flashy TDs, but he found another significant way to contribute against Rams - Jon Machota, SportsDayWhile all of the hype flooding social media surrounding Rico Gathers is about his touchdown grabs and physical prowess, Gathers says the coaching staff has been coaching him to “finish” Kavon Frazier Jersey . Machota explains how Gathers is working on the little things to make an impact on the football field."The flash plays, they stand out, but it's all about the little things," Gathers said. "The little things is what's going to make you elite ."Late in the third quarter, Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown caught a short pass and turned it into a 19-yard gain. But near the end of the run, Brown fumbled.Gathers hustled down the field and was able to recover the ball. Two plays later, he caught a 25-yard touchdown pass from Cooper Rush."It showed up really and truly with that fumble recovery," Gathers said. "If I would've never ran all the way down, that ball could have very easily been for the Rams and that touchdown could've never been set up for us."Rico Gathers Grabs Another Jump-Ball TD t My Ball; It Like A Rebound” - Rod Phillips, DallasCowboysThe former Baylor Bears hoops star has shown off his ability to box out a defender and his leaping ability on more than one occasion. t my ball”, the Cowboys tight end proclaims.e talked about it before the game and we already knew if that play came up, what to look for,” Gathers said. “My job was to get open and his job was just to put it up there.”Sort of like an alley-oop to the former Baylor power forward. Or simply grabbing a basketball off the glass.t my ball,” he said. t like a rebound.”Cowboys TE Rico Gathers makes case for roster spot - Tyler Horka, NFLHorka writes that his performance so far gives the former basketball player a great chance of making the 53-man roster come September.If a ball is up for grabs, odds are Dallas Cowboys tight end Rico Gathers will grasp it.When basketballs flung off the rim during his time at Baylor, Gathers snatched them effortlessly. He averaged 10.3 rebounds per game during his final two seasons as a forward for the Bears.When footballs fly toward him on the field, he seizes them just as easily. The former basketball player caught his second touchdown in as many weeks In front of 62 Robert Blanton Jersey ,888 spectators at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on Saturday."You put it up there, I'm going to definitely make a play on the ball to go get it," Gathers said after the Cowboys lost to the Rams, 13-10. "Nine-point-nine times out of 10, I'm going to come down with it."Let put Rico Gathers and his ever-growing hype into proper perspective - RJ Ochoa, Blogging The BoysDespite all of the hype and excitement about the Cowboys’ freakish tight end, BTB RJ Ochoa makes sure to put everything into perspective. While he will likely be on the active roster, Rico Gathers is still likely behind Geoff Swaim and James Hanna. Why? Well, because they are better blockers for Dallas at this stage.There are a lot of great elements to Rico Gathers’ game. He so fast considering his size, he has incredible hands for someone so new at this, and oh yea his size is literally larger than practically anyone on earth. Does this mean that wee ready to trot him out as the primary tight end after Witten, remembering that he is still new at this, when things really matter?Both Geoff Swaim and James Hanna have shown great production where it matters for the Dallas Cowboys - the run game. Swaim and Hanna contribute significantly as blocking tight ends, and considering this is the bread and butter of the Cowboys... that element wins out right now. Both Swaim and Hanna have not just more but actual experience at this level while Rico doesn have any at any level.It silly to say that simply because Rico Gathers is not the veteran that Swaim or Hanna are that he below them on the depth chart, and that not what wee doing here. The perspective here is that what Swaim and Hanna provide overall are to be heavily weighed against what Rico adds - a dynamic weapon in the pass game.Cooper Rush fever spreads after latest outing with Cowboys - Peter Wallner, Bay City Times, MichiganThe Michigan papers are keeping a close eye on former Central Michigan quarterback Cooper Rush.Cooper Rush turned in another strong preseason game with the Dallas Cowboys and, just like that, there's talk of him becoming the team's No. 2 quarterback.That's still unlikely but he was the best news coming from the Cowboys after their 13-10 loss Saturday to the Los Angeles Rams.Rush fared much better than his competition. Kellen Moore, the projected backup, went 8 of 17 for 69 yards, while Luke McCown went 6 of 13 for 31 yards and fumbled twice.That ignited further talk about how far Rush can go this preseason. He also played well in the preseason opener.Cooper Rush Shines On Lackluster Night For Cowboys' Quarterbacks - David Helman, DallasCowboysAs you know by now, undrafted rookie Cooper Rush was one of the bright spots from the Cowboys’ second preseason game. Helman writes on the performance and Rush push to climb up the depth chart.One year after Dak Prescott coming out party in a preseason loss to the Rams , it was hard not to think about it when Cooper Rush took the field in the same situation.Alright, maybe it not the same situation. Prescott is now firmly entrenched as the Cowboys’ starter – so much so that he didn even play on Saturday night. And Kellen Moore, whose injury opened the door for Prescott last summer, is in command of the backup job.But still, after watching Moore and the first-team offense sputter to 69 first-half passing yards, it felt like a revelation to watch the undrafted rookie take the field in the third quarter.Cooper Rush impresses on down night for Cowboys QBs - Drew Davison, The Star-TelegramRush outing caught the attention of quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson. Wilson was impressed and said the former Central Michigan star throw to Rico Gathers was “fantastic”. was really impressed with Cooper,” quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson said. e was seeing the field extremely well, making good decisions, throwing the ball accurately. He had an ability to step his game up into games over what he does in practice, which is a good trait.”The most impressive throw by Rush happened in the third quarter when he hit tight end Rico Gathers down the left seam for a 25-yard touchdown. That was the only TD on the night for the Cowboys.t was fantastic,” Wilson said. “And the best thing about it was his eye discipline. He got the safety to move away from Rico, looked him off, and then made a perfect throw to Rico .”Cooper Rush needs to be the Dallas Cowboys primary backup quarterback - Cole Patterson, Blogging The BoysI wrote after the game that Dallas Cowboys need to replace Kellen Moore with rookie Cooper Rush as the second guy on the QB depth chart. Moore simply doesn have what it takes. I noted that the Cowboys simply look different with Rush in at quarterback.Against the Rams, Rush gave the Cowboys life. After a sluggish performance with Kellen Moore in the game, the Cowboys looked to have a jump in their step with number 7 behind center. The confident undrafted rookie completed nine of his eleven passes hitting his first eight before his first incompletion for over 100 yards and a score. He marched the Cowboys down the field and hit freakishly athletic tight end Rico Gathers for six on a beautiful dime from 25-yards out.Cooper Rush drops a dime to Rico Gathers for the TD! DALvsLAR
