    Only the Joneses could give a power RB the biggest contact and promote a passing QB to OC and then hire a pass game HC.

    Honestly, if they thought they could run successfully against Tampa, they WOULD have run more than they did.

    Congratulations on successfully awakening from the coma you've been in since before the 2019 season started.

    If you watch that game again, watch the Q1 and see how Bowles was setting his front 7 up. He wanted Prescott to air it out, they were not running on that D last night.

    Conventional “wisdom” says Dak can’t carry Dallas against good teams, so it’s understandable that Bowles went with that strategy. If not for our kicker, that strategy was erroneous.

    True . But the run game will be needed at some stage against other teams .

    Now?? This has been a passing team for a long time now. Zeke is trending down and most runs by him just kills momentum. Plus, TB's DL was killing us and we weren't going to run. They had no real answer for our passing game. Do what works. And the run game was not working in the least.

    Tampa made the Dallas O one dimensional and they Dak still put 400 on them…and Tampa has a good secondary.

    what Dak did was impressive, very impressive.

    We put 29 points on the reigning super bowl champs with two missed field goals and one missed extra point. We must’ve done something right.

    They could have gashed the Bucs defense with some delays and draws.

    Didn't you watch Vita Vea push our OLinemen (including Tyron) all the way back to Dak? Do you think we could have moved him on a run play?
    And they have good LBs so it would have been hard to run on the edges also.

    A few CZ regulars talk like Steven A. Smith. They treat penalties and turnovers by Tampa as fluke occurrences , like Dallas was lucky, like they should have been destroyed. But mistakes made by the Cowboys were inevitable outcomes of an inferior team of incompetent fools.

    Imagine if we had Vita Vea next to a healthy Gallimore!

    Let's not get carried away about passing too much. The pass was working. We were shredding them. I don't mind at all passing the ball to try and win the game. Garrett on the other hand, would have kept running it 40x despite the mismatches our receivers pose with the other team.

    Zeke was Martins interior replacement. Thank him. Dak would have been dead by half time without Zeke throwing himself in the middle all game.

    (Side-note: I bet he wished he had some of that weight he cut during off season to soften the blows.)

    Honestly, they did think they could run the ball until they lost Zack Martin just a few days before game day. They still tried to run the ball but couldn't do it so they made an in-game adjustment to a more pass-heavy plan.

    yes zeke has no burst . Kellen called a great offensive game . But the running game has to be used in the future and wonder if it is a strength anymore.
