    Great great article. Nicely done.

    Seems like some the facts fly in the face of what others keep claiming on here:

    . Kitna points to Prescott’s deep ball as a particularly impressive area of his game. “It’s tremendous,” Kitna says. “He throws it with great velocity, the right kind of air, the right kind of firmness.” Prescott’s 115.7 passer rating on deep throws ranked fourth in the NFL last season, behind only Drew Brees, Russell Wilson, and Aaron Rodgers. The issue was that the Cowboys hardly pushed the ball downfield: Just 10.8 percent of Prescott’s passes traveled 20 or more yards in the air, which ranked 24th out of 35 qualified quarterbacks. Moore would be smart to give vertical shots a stronger emphasis in this year’s offense,

    With all of the speed we're placing on the field, Dak can probably go deep a lot quicker than his 1st 3 years. Add in that if the Oline is improved this year, it can only help stretching the field

    This offense is top 2 if the other team does not know what we are doing every play

    Could you imagine 24th overall on offense. Even if we moved up halfway. The achievement. And if it turns into wins. Go Cowboys I'm excited.

    I notice that Kitna left out an important part about the "...throws it with great velocity, the right kind of air, the right kind of firmness" - those throws are routinely 5 to 10 yards off target.

    The beginning of the article drew a few examples of the trend the NFL is taking to go younger. One of those was the Cardinals going with Kliff Kingsbury as their head coach and pairing him with Kyler Murray at QB. These two are going to be a bust so I don't think they are such a good example to be using for the current youth trend in the NFL.

    Because you statement has as much chance as being correct as a snowball surviving the Sahara desert heat.
    So no, you will not hear that because you are wrong.

    15 new OC's this year, and 4 never called plays before. Let the comparisons begin.

    Most of the quotes from Moore show a level of maturity, comfort and insight you don't often see in someone so young and relatively inexperienced.

    Have to admit, the article got my heart beating just a little faster. Can't wait for the season to unfold.

    This is one of Jerrys latest gambles taking this unproven young man with loads of potential and giving him the keys to your brand new Ferrari. Jerry like the rest of us has seen Garrett is unable to coach us to a championship but he is far too comfortable with him to move on

    Instead he is going to provide him help . At best with some luck this young play caller could at least provide some new wrinkles that the whole league has not seen a hundred times .
    A handful of plays that over the length of a season change the outcome of games in our favor that's all it would take . Out think the guy across from you in big moments a handful of times and we go farther .

    That said I really don't think it possible for him to be a worse play caller than Garrett or Linehan and if he is no better then the Oline and power running game do as the have done in the past and cover most of his sins .

    Everybody says Moore is a genius but i have to see any evidence in TC or pre season.
