Cole Beasley said he showed against the Chargers that he can catch the ball and “run with it a little bit.”
The Cowboys can’t disagree.
Beasley caught seven passes for 104 yards, including 29- and 28-yard catches in which he made yards after catch. He caught a variety of passes. Over the middle. On the sideline. Close to the ground.
He was targeted nine times by quarterbacks Tony Romo, Kyle Orton and Rudy Carpenter.
“I guess it went pretty well,” he said. “I’ve still got to clean up the mental errors and stuff. But overall, it was a pretty good day.”
It was much different than last week against Oakland, when he was targeted in the first quarter but didn’t see another pass come his way the rest of the game.
He caught one pass from Romo, two from Orton and four from Carpenter. He accounted for 57 yards in catches in the two-minute drive led by Carpenter.
“I see them all in practice, we all work together in practice,” he said. “They all throw the ball good. They all put it right where it needs to be. I didn’t have to make any amazing catches. They all put it right on the money.”
Beasley also had a 24-yard punt return, but it was nullified by a penalty.
