    Some boneheads here calling for more balanced offense, what kind of idiotic thing to say when you can see with your own eyeballs that TB was not being handled up front by the OL and running Zeke was just a waste of down and time. The short passing game was used as "running" plays instead, nothing wrong with that, KC does it all the time. But you saw what TB did to KC recently.....so Dallas outdid that and more. TB could not stop them. You can't fault Moore for attacking the TB weakness. And that they did. Unfortunately, they needed one more play to win this game. Came up short.

    The same boneheads who were saying Dallas was going to get massacred are now crying about a balanced offense could have won it for them? What a laugh.

    People can’t let go of the 90s and still think football is played that way.

    Heck Jason Garrett couldn’t let it go and he’s supposedly a professional.

    You run when they can stop it. You pass when they can’t stop it.

    Was there any reason to run it last night? They still bit on nearly every play action we ran last night with 0 establishment of the run game.

    Most of you know I’d be the first to rip them if I thought it was trash.

    Kellen Moore had a incredible night.

    Maybe he missed some but all things considered Dak was phenomenal and that’s just the reality.

    That was what carrying a team looks like as opposed to playing not to lose which he’s done so much of in the past.

    After 1 game and all things considered I’m extremely impressed with Dak’s game last night. He was great.

    Maybe Tampa's stout defense had something to do with it.

    He was pretty good. He led the team, played hard, stayed focused, made some really good decisions with the ball. He made some Great passes, but he made some poor ones, some of which resulted in TD's by the way. Don't get me wrong, I DO NOT BLAME DAK PRESCOTT FOR THE LOSS!!!!

    Kellen Moore is the playcaller. McCarthy got told it would be Kellen after he hired on and pretended like it was his idea to not make Jerry look like he’s controlling the HC.

    I liked the game plan. You take what the defense gives you. We attacked their weakest CBs again and again.

    I don't think we will have a similar game plan the rest of the season. The most favorable match up against TB was Cooper, Gallup and CDL against their CBs. We always complain that the cowboys can't take advantage of a favorable match up but this time they did.

    Tampa did the same thing. Brown vs Brown was like a money play for them. Why rush the ball when they could just abuse Anthony Brown all night?

    tampa had issue running too and they started to use screen passes to RBs...which are like long handoffs....we did it a couple of times, it was effective, but then didn't use it any longer....Moore got away from that and those kind of plays loosen up the defense.....

    100%

    Ands it’s because he did the exact opposite of what you wanted him to do.

    Moore had a average to below average night....sorry to disagree. he made too many crucial mistakes..his play calling wasn't that creative, nor that good. its just that we have great personnel that can execute any play....inside the redzone he made many mistakes with wrong personnel grouping, his route combinations were chaotic at best. he seems to go into games without a real plan of what it is he is trying to accomplish or establish.

    Moore was the best coach last night by far. Near flawless.

    some fans just don’t understand football.

    he was not flawless. far from it. on the interception that was a very bad route combination he called that put two recievers in the same area, which brought 4 defenders in play....Dak made a great through, even if CD makes the catch, it was a bad call.....

    on the zeke run at the two, he had the wrong personnel grouping, isolating Jarwin, a notoriously bad blocker on a saftey. he whiffed and zeke had no chance, despite Dak and zeke executing a perfect toss/pitch....

    on the last drive, he made several mistakes, and he should have talked to his players to let them know they need to stay in bounds....he needed to eat the clock. goal is to score a TD, if not, a FG, but regardless make sure you don't leave any time on the clock for the other team....we kept running out of bounds, stopping the clock...we had three time outs left and could have used them if necessary.

    he used the screen pass a couple of times and it was successful, then he stopped using it, to help loosen up the pass rush and the pass defense and the middle of the field.

    it was the players high skills that executed the plays, not the play design or the play call. he sucked inside the redzone and couldn't figure out how to get to the end zone...going 1 for 4....he had same issues last night.

    the offensive output was sheer skill and will of the players, not Moore.

    I don't think you understand football....I am breaking down his mistakes for the game and shall post that soon once I finish rewatching the game.

    If Garrett would have still been our coach he would have run it up the middle 30x times only to be stifled consistently. Our offense last night had no semblance of a Garrett's dumby-down 90s offense. To say that Moore still are following Garrett's playbook is just plain wrong.

    However, we are still cursed Garrett's inability to get it into the redzone. That is what Moore has to deal with here. Maybe just sign Dez Bryant off the streets. Don't think Noah Brown is our answer.

    Don't mistake the call for balance to mean we want 50/50 pass run.. At least that's not what it means to me.. I want us to be able to run when we NEED to run.. whether it be 15 times or 35 times.. Yes we did a decent job of attacking their weakness on defense but we also allowed them to completely take away a huge part of our game and we really let them do it without forcing them to show it. Especially later in the game after their fat guys were gassed and we needed to eat clock to keep from leaving Brady too much time would have been the perfect time to pound them .. All the passing in that situation not only left too much time for them but it also continued to expose our franchise QB to unnecessary hits even after watching him take a beating all night long. In that situation once we were in FG range seconds were more important than yards so continuing to throw there was the wrong call. I cannot speak for others but THAT is the balance I was looking for.. Not 35 plunges into the teeth of the defense..

    This is not the worst idea in the world but let's see if Brown can fill that role first.. Well that's not what I would want but I know that's what they're going to do. But back when the Cowboys had a healthy Dez and Witten they were money in the red zone.. Sometimes It's not the X's and O's it's the Jimmies and Joes.. If this team doesn't find a red zone beast it's going to have a lot of nights like last night where they end up kicking field goals ...

    I have been frustrated with Moore's RedZone offense for the past couple of seasons. I feel he leaves too many points on the field.
