    It’s all about balance. Dink and dunk was a winning scheme. Then we changed it because everybody wanted 400 yards passing games. Then we prove we could do that. But obviously you lose because that’s all you do is pass and you’ll lose your balance. Prescott needs Elliot Elliot needs Prescott. It’s called team for a reason

    Another reason. Worst special teams in the league we only started one drive on the opponents side of the field last season. By the time Elliot and Company got to the end zone he was gassed. Took him self out I have so many drives it drove me crazy. Again let’s hope for better special-teams and more balance

    Balance smalance. Lets be honest with each other, Zeke was the primary reason Dallas went 13-3 in 2016. But like you said, we did have a good deal of balance that season. But Zeke was just off the charts that season.

    The bottom line is that when good defenses stack the box to stop Zeke, there is no responding in the passing game

    That fact was established is 2017 season against the Broncos. Stop the run, stop the Cowboys

    But yeah, we can pass on The Redskins, Giants, and Dolphins all day long

    RB’s should be for finishing games.

    Build a lead through aggressive play calling and then let Zeke run roughshod over a tired defense in the 3rd and 4th quarter.

    That may have more to do with too much "feed me" off the field. I don't recall so many tap outs from other backs.

    First 3 games we passed 70% on first downs. Then someone, like The Red Menace, shut that down and started doggedly and predictably slamming Zeke into stacked boxes. And that's despite success on each of the few times we threw instead.

    Can't just stop the run. Can't just stop the pass.

    2019 Cowboys were not the 2017 Cowboys.
    2019 Cooper and Gallup were not 2017 Dez and Williams.
    2019 Moore was not 2017 Linehan.
    2019 Dak was not 2017 Dak.
    2019 Tyron was not 2017 Tyron.

    We haven't been able to win off Daks arm.
    So what's the solution?

    Zeke faced stacked boxes less than he ever has in his career last year and less than ~23 other RB’s. Zeke demands respect from the public when even defenses don’t respect him anymore.

    We can also run on the Skins, Giants and Dolphins which is why over half the games zeke ran for 100 yards last season were against those 3 teams who also happened to all be in the bottom 5 defensively.

    People want to bash Dak for racking up yards against garbage teams but zeke gets a free pass and is actually applauded for it “he had more yards than any other RB”....just not against good teams mostly.

    *funny you brought up the Broncos, the same game the huffy diva quit on his team. Real winner! That guy can’t handle the slightest bit of adversity, he’s been feeding alright, off a silver spoon his entire collegiate and NFL career. I would love to see him play behind the Giants O line, he would be tapping out or sitting out after the first quarter.

    I wish Zeke were as good as his biggest fans think he is.

    Too bad it’s the exact opposite, he’s as naive and clueless as his biggest fans are.

    NOW SHOW ME SOME RESPECT!

    Some players are happy with individual stats and all the money that comes with it. I prefer winners.

    When Zeke was suspended for six games, Dak stunk up the joint. When Cooper wasn’t here, Dak stunk up the joint. When Smith is out, Dak stinks up the joint. He wasn’t average, he was bad.

    The point is Dak stinks up the joint when he doesn’t have top level talent surrounding him.

    Ummm maybe get a defense, special teams and coaching staff that has a pulse? All 3 of those phases have been putrid. Every single playoff loss in the Garrett era has been because of defense and coaching.

    But yeah, all Dak's fault. Meanwhile, a guy like Romo gets all kinds of praise and nothing but excuses made lmao. Got to love it.

    The stats quoted above are wrong. Zeke didn’t face stacked boxes less than 23 other backs, it was his percentage that was less than these 23 other backs this season. A lot of this, most likely, can be attributed to the fact we were behind a lot more.

    With Zeke’s rushing attempts, he was in the top 10 minimum in terms of NUMBER of stacked boxes.

    The headline is not what the graph shows.
