    If the other team is committing extra players to get their pass rush or run stops then those plays you mentioned would work. If your OL is so incompetent that they can pressure your QB and stop your run with just the DL alone then they can easily deal with any trickeration your trying to pull behind the LOS.

    Having a bad Oline and running game should actually make you more creative.


    You're not going to just line up and win 1 on 1 a majority of the time.

    You're coach may actually have to out think the other coach.

    It's really not about gimmick plays. It's about creating illusions and giving the defense every sign that you're going to do one thing and then you do another.

    You can trick teams without doing 3 reverses and a throw back to the QB.

    That's not what he said. He said they need to set-up the run with more short and intermediate passes.

    They need to set up the run with passing formations that they have had success out of.

    We don't need Vickers, Phillips, and Witten out there every time we run the ball.

    In the first half the Cowboys got off to their typical slow start trying to establish a running game and not attempting the quick hitting passes. They put themselves in 3rd and long situations and couldn't get anything going while the Browns were moving the football on the ground and through the air. Garrett didn't adjust quick enough and it almost got the Cowboys blown out by halftime. The Cowboys offense had no pace or rhythm in the first half which resulted in 68 total yards which was their lowest first half total in 5 years.

    In the second half the Cowboys started showing a sense of urgency and picked up the pace being down by 13 points. Their 2 biggest plays were down the field to Dez one a 30 yard play and the other was a 28 yard TD. The Cowboys need to start games with a faster pace like we see later in games. The slow paced, sluggish starts have gotten them down in a couple of games in which they were able to battle back once they started showing a sense of urgency.

    They erased a 23 point deficit to NY a few weeks ago after picking up the pace. The Cowboys need to get out of the blocks a lot quicker if they're going to beat some of the teams they have coming up. They come out slow against Washington on Thursday RG3 will put on a show.

    Good post. Hopefully they will start with the fast-paced short passing game, which, I believe, opens up opportunities for the deep ball and the run.
