    I thought the OL improved once Columbo was on board.

    Or they shouldn’t have run off Frank Pollack. There’s a whole chain of mistakes that were made regarding the offense, which shouldn’t make anyone feel good about our decision making ability.

    Agreed. JG should have renewed his contract. Our O-Line was running well. I think the guy he hired was a buddy of JG.

    I think everyone but the Jones boys realize the problem is coaching.

    Thanks for your dripping with sarcasm response!! What have you seen over the JG era that makes you think this will happen? He couldn’t do it as offensive coordinator or as head coach. So me the years where we reach a certain point of progress and then the young guys get better and the team improves. If you are not moving forward with team building you are moving backwards. The FO should be turning over every leaf to see how we can improve. By looking at all FA’s, draft, coaches, analytics, play calling, FA off the street, etc. the point is not to sit still and bury your head in the sand so we don’t become Redskins of the early 2000’s and try to win the offseason. I know most fans are intelligent enough to know that we should not sign guys in FA and reset the market for every position.

    I think there was also a rumor that Pollack left because he wasn’t being given a voice in the offensive scheme.

    Thank you. Amari Cooper trade when it happened in the moment was a bad move. Remember I said in the moment. The FO did not expect to make the playoffs last year. It was a long term decision. It is very easy to look at the result and call Jerry a genius but it was a bad process that got a good result. Stuff happens.
    Work ona better process. When you continually have a good process good results will follow. This is the same advice I give to my 11 & 7 year old, the same spiel I give to my team at work.

    Oh I agree with that but last season.....Cowboys weren’t dominant enough to blow out bad teams. At the beginning of the year....they were the bad teams. This team wants to control clock. So those games are just going to be close. Teams will always be in games with us and we will rarely get blown out if at all.

    Yeah but this offenses problems were bigger than just pass protection. Run blocking as well among play calling.

    Yup. Let's hope Moore can be creative too.

    The Cowboys biggest problem was red-zone scoring. Dez Bryant was the quintessential red-zone receiver in the NFL, and the Cowboys parted ways with him last year. If I was a Cowboys coach, I would train Rico Gathers on one, and only one route. Let him learn to box out the defender and high-point the ball on back-shoulder fades in the end zone, like Bryant used to do for the Cowboys. It is the ONLY potential value for Gathers at this point in his career.

    That would be nice. I had not thought of that for fixing the red zone problem. If they establish that threat, it would open up all their other weapons too. They started playing rico last year. Maybe with one more offseason he gets it.

    Although Bryant being the red zone threat was a romo dez connection. Romo was just as special as dez on that. I don't remember how he and dak did. If dak could make those throws, andestablish that with Rico and cooper was 1v1 sometimes, he would be a really big threat. I don't know if dak has that touch though.

    Of the 4 things you listed #4 is probably the biggest reason the offense was so up and down last year. Just can't replace what a Center like Fredbeard brings to the team. Plus you also saw how it affected Martin's play.

    Why do you have to taint an otherwise well-thought out and well-said post by employing that annoying and usually needless habit people have of calling other people's comments "crying"? Did you need to do that?

    There is lots to look forward too. Hopefully Travis, Zack, m collins, Wilson, and austin return to form and stay healthy
