    You and me both.. Moore absolutely DOES NOT want to run the ball in the red zone.. which would be okay if we had a Dez type receiver or a Witten type tight end but we just don't. Our guys are finesse receivers.. Which means they gotta get present a target before Dak will throw it to them. For the most part none of them is going to go up and fight for the ball and take it off the DB's helmet or just post up a yard deep into the end zone and box out the way we saw Witten do so many times..

    His play design is very creative. Especially compared to the clapper. I think almost every play we ran last night had a pre snap motion. Something JG would almost never do.

    Honestly the 2 plays I can recall that I would question was the 4th and 2 from inside Tampa's 5....and the run play early...deep in our territory...on 3rd and short. Other than that...he kept the chains moving...can't ask for more. I've heard people ***** all day about having balance on offense...well if something isn't working why waste time when you found a weakness and are able to exploit it?

    eh, overall too much passing, he called plays like they were down by 21. Also he kept calling that same play to the left sideline over and over and over, well past the point it was working. Not even close to "phenomonal"

    And Moore was with Linehan in Detroit and Linehan had him as the practice QB, meaning keeping the team familiar with the offense. These guys continue to latch onto Garrett as an excuse, even though Garrett was banished from play calling by 2014.

    Funny how Moore constantly gets the credit being ranked at #21 in the offensive coordinators dept. while MM keeps getting dished.

    Just a reminder, Moore was under Garrett as well & never seen such compliments. Hence, why MM deserves the credit!

    I remember thinking the offense looked different in a good way early on, so I won't disagree with that.

    NFL coaches are going to eventually need to get it through their heads though that scoring late, unless it puts you up by 9 has to also include the bleeding of the clock.

    Giving the ball back to Tom Brady with 1:26 left down one.....who saw the outcome differently?

    Not just Moore....many teams do this. That's not an MM thing at that point really.

    Not trashing Moore in any way, but its way too easy to score in 2021.

    Killing the clock has to be a thing moving ahead.

    Yet you argued with me that the game plan should be to focus on running Zeke.

    Do you think that Moore designed it so that he could give Brady the ball back with 1.26 to go?

    Of course not....just saying that teams need to have this in mind nowadays.

    Not just Moore amd not just Dallas. Happens all over the league.

    It's so easy to get into FG range at the end of halves clock killing has to be in the mind of someone calling plays....and part of the strategy.

    Nobody besides Rockport thought Dak could have a game like that after sitting out a year and half of training camp.

    It sucks...........all they really needed to do was get one more first down and this game was over. Williams with the holding pentalty on Vea when he couldnt block him gave up any hope of that.

    We both know that's not true. You and I argued as such and I said the game plan should be EXACTLY the way Moore did it.

    I will withhold my judgement until I can see him mix it up more with the run game. We have 2 great and different backs and always a potential runner in the QB. We have to figure out ways to run, swing, screen, etc. Even against the #1 rated running D. We won't get far if we are one dimensional.

    As good as we looked the other night, we are still in the same spot as we were last season. We have to sling it for 30+ to get a win. That's not going to cut it in the playoffs.

    We won’t play from behind against the #1 ranked run defense who can’t cover every week.

    The matchup called for it and Moore played it smart.

    You build leads with the pass and close games with the run. We never got in that situation.

    No... Dak was phenomenal.

    Moore gets a C+. His pass heavy gameplan was good, but running Zeke into a pile on 3rd and short goal line yardage with a bad blocking tight end was... putrid.
