When i saw the Dallas Cowboys two weeks ago in San Diego, the question was what they were going to do for a third wide receiver. No problem, receivers coach Jimmy Robinson said, we already have one.

Naturally, I was skeptical. Ogletree hadn't done much in three years with the Cowboys, but I'm skeptical no more. He was the difference in Dallas' season-opening upset of the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants Wednesday night, with two touchdown catches and over 100 yards in receptions.
What's more, he made the first-down catch on a 15-yard reception with just over two minutes left to clinch the victory.
That's important because Dallas had to replace Laurent Robinson, who led the team with 11 TDs last season, and I'd say they may have found their man. Granted, the Giants are short at cornerback, with Terrell Thomas and Prince Amukamara out, but that's no excuse for what happened. Ogletree was alone for two scores and might've had three if Tony Romo hadn't thrown a pass behind him.
In any case, the Cowboys APB for a third wideout appears to have ended just as it was beginning. If Kevin Ogletree is as good as he was Wednesday, you can scratch one big hole in the Dallas offense.
