While head coach Jason Garrett concedes that it is a reasonable question, he said there are other considerations that need to be taken into account before making a seismic shift in approach. If the Cowboys were to implement that strategy, would the opponent defend the Cowboys the same way early in the game as it did at the end?
How vulnerable of a position would the Cowboys’ defense find itself in if the offense sputtered on successive possessions and was unable to stay on the field for a sustained period? Would the element of surprise accompanying the hurry-up offense be removed if it were used habitually? And would a team not conditioned to move at a fast pace run out of gas before the end of the game?
So Garrett has to research it, write a thesis on it, and perform a case study before he considers it?
He doesn't have to run that offense the entire game, just when they feel they can gain an advantage over the defense. But more than once a game would be preferable. And speaking of defense, the Cowboys defense is just what you want to run a fast paced offense. They lead the league in 3 and outs, and they can hold their own for good chunks of the game.
Buuut....I suppose he'd rather just continue doing what he's doing...because, hey...it's working after all....
