Targeting a RB five times in a game on 2 yard routes is losing football...who's designing this stuff, and what veteran QB would follow thru with it?
Well to be fair most of the routes for the RBs are not routes at all. They are dump offs after Dak has gone through his reads and has a DL hanging onto his legs or tugging at his shoulders. But to your last point.. you are 100% correct... at some point Dak is going to have to stop buying into his belief that Kellen Moore is a "genius" and realize that some of these calls are setting him and his teammates up to fail. In particular ANY time he sends in the delay handoff up the middle with one of our tight ends assigned to block the DE and the center is supposed to help Zack Martin while ignoring the middle backer.. he needs to either audible to something else or call timeout and go over and discuss the play call with Moore. It's the next necessary step in his growth that he feels empowered to tell Moore "dude I aint runnin that" when he sends in a stupid play. Romo eventually had to do it to Garrett.. I guarantee you Rodgers did it to McCarthy. And Cowboy fans of a certain age will all remember some of the heated sideline discussions between Roger and Coach Landry.. It's part of the QBs job to disagree with the OC sometimes. I personally don't think Dak does it enough..
