    Brady is also very good at leading his receivers on the screen pass so they are already moving forward at the catch. Dak is pretty bad at it.

    Asking zeke to catch those wild passes and make something of it...IS pretty silly. Zeke is a big boy...not meant for circus catches.

    It doesn;t mean he's ineffective in the passing game. In fact...if you throw him open and let him get some steam before the catch...he's deadly and has proven it.

    Yep, you're right...not Zeke 2016 deadly but *** was?

    Stop making him bend down or jump up and throw him open.

    Day late and a dollar short, like why did we even bother signing Ito Smith back at week 9, and not even taking a peek?
    Like having a worthy Clement not even given an opportunity to display beyond STs duty, when he displays in limited looks ability?

    We rarely throw downfield to them and Dak takes too long to check it down. The RB is close to the sidelines waiting for the bailout and the defense converges on them when the ball is in the air.

    He also puts the ball in bad positions which makes them adjust to catch the ball too often. Several times Zeke could have scored near the goal line on a pass but the ball was behind instead of in front and the defender was able to make the stop.

    Dak needs to do a better job getting them the ball quicker and put the ball in a better spot more often.

    How long is Moores' leash should be the question.
    Maybe Moore has been dialed back but we get the allegations on this forum that it has to be Moore just not designing game plans.
    Maybe Moore has been conservative, dialed back, he should have opened it up, but maybe he knew he was working with limitations.
    Moore wasnt going to elevate Daks game and Dak wasnt going to allow Moore an opportunity this late in the season to elevate his game, by design.
    Dak already had his hands full just trying to figure out how to drop a ball into a soft 2 deep zone, with no running game.
    Denver did that.\
    Whos fault was that on counter..
    Dak, Moore,, tired of all the excuses, bottom line is if you are a leader you overcome and defeat and overcome the obstacle.
    This team had no answer.

    Looks like Pop Warner , ugly. Maybe if they would call the play to the running back instead of a check down it would look better. They could at least try and set up blocking if it was a called play.

    That’s because he’s never hit in stride with a pass.

    This QB hurts everyone on offense.

    1. Can't move in the pocket
    2. Throws ball late and inaccurately to RB and WR

    Part of the problem is Zeke isn't talented enough as a pass catcher to make up for daks inaccurate check downs.

    Kellen Moore would not call a timely screen if his horse teeth depended on it.

    It's the OC. Even JG n Linehan tried every now and then to weaponize a RB...Lance Dunbar and Rod Smith made plays receiving but Pollard, who was a WR, isn't getting the opportunity smh. Pollard should have schemed pass plays. Also, the Cowboys should have 3 RBs that can tote the mail, and never play a hurt RB over a healthy RB, again.
