can TT bring back the "end sweep" from moribundancy?

    Moribundancy, is that a word? The end sweep has been dead in the NFL for, say a couple of decades (?) as a productive play ... maybe as a 3-4 yard warning to the D to stopping clogging the "box" ...

    Can an upright-running, end-sweeping RB be a bonus in the regular season? Is TT the new E. Dickerson? Man this guy explodes outsides and knows when to cut it up. Besides that, he may be CFL material, I don't know. (He'd make an impact up there with that wide field to work with!)

    Good Question but imho the back side pursuit would nail the runner who would be waiting for his blockers

    Tucker can't even play in space, much less run a sweep.

    J/K ;)

    You know, instead of 'wow this kid can run those ends ragged', I've seen more
    'til he proves he can run inside, he's camp fodder' crap today.

    We still don't know what we've got in TT, but til he proves what he can't do, let's err on the side of optimism.

    It's going to be a treat discovering the bredth of his game.

    Are we allowed to do that... I mean I have only been following the Cowboys for over 30+ years
