This offense will go as the OL goes. Big questions regarding LG, Tyron’s availability, and Steele’s recovery from injury… and how do they mesh with Solari?
Solari probably brings in technique focus and they aren't out of touch with playing status for players.

I wasn’t a Kellen Moore fan, but he had moments of brilliance surrounded by “you called THAT in that situation?”

Anyone can have a flash here or there. That was mainly due to talent. But KM was not a highly intelligent offensive coordinator at this level.

Why follow the team during the season then?
Because I like football.


But I’ve seen too many good Cowboys teams no show in the post season.


Nobody wants to admit it but we were a terrible matchup for the 9ers and we absolutely laid an egg.

LOL..

MM was complaining that it was just that with Moore and they were apparently scoring too much and they needed to be more ball control to protect the defense.

Comical that people complain about “curl routes”, when Cee Dee Lamb’s best route is the curl route.

The biggest thing that stands out when watching Ceedee Lamb run curl routes is his route savvy. He does a great job of reading defenses and identifying coverages. When defenders bail off the line, Lamb breaks off his route and lets his quarterback know he’s open right away. He’s able to find the open holes in zones and work away from defenders to give his quarterback a better throwing lane and give him an uncontested catch opportunity. Lamb is also really good at breaking the defender’s cushion and getting him to flip his hips just at the top of the route.

Once Lamb makes the catch, his run after catch ability allows him to turn a 5-10 yard curl route into a 20-30 yard gain. Of his 13 receptions on curl routes this season, four of them went for at least 20 yards. In a Cowboys offense in which Dak Prescott targeted a curl route on over 19% of his attempts in 2019, look for Lamb to come in right away and contribute early on.

You know, maybe the problem was the QB. They built an offense for him 7 years running and he still sucked.

For Prescott, this includes giving him adequate pass protection. The Cowboys offensive line had one of the worst pass-rush win rates last season. When Dak feels pressure, he bolts. It messes with his physique and he doesn’t always hang tough and work through his progressions. Prescott also loves wide-open targets versus throwing his receivers open. Anticipation is not a strong suit for him and that is why route-running specialists like Cooper and stationary targets have been part of the strategy over the years.

Sounds good except you need to have a quarterback that forces them to cover the entire field l o l
I am so glad this will be a short experiment

Difficult to say without the Dak Hater brigade, but it could well be that in recent years its DAK that prefers the stationary target (explaining why he works well with his TE).
He's now got a slant running TE and WR, hopefully that and a quicker WCO that doesn't depend on routes developing and Dak having to worry on progressions may well be tge answer......that's why I advocate we wait out this coming season before addressing the Dak extension.
