    You, yes you out there, by your fireplaces or the burning-tire blockades in Gary, Ind.,
    HOW WILL LIL' KELLEN BE AN OFFENSIVE GENIUS?
    By prying every ounce of passing skills from an awful passer Dak or going to a run-dominated offense?
    Ga'head, Kellen , let us in on your stairway to playoff heaven, you teacher's pet.

    Zek will fit in just fine! Maybe he’ll get a few less carries and a few more catches. Open up the offense and throw the ball to Zek in space.

    He's also the best blocking RB in the NFL.

    According to PFF he can't do squat. Maybe a case of tunnel vision brought on by studying Mr. Goodells picture a little too long. I wonder what that picture says to them when it's turned around backwards?

    Artificial logs, right? Richardson? Imitation country squire with old south pretensions?

    you probably saw what the 2019 O looks like the 2nd half of last year.

    basically Dak's attempts went from 30 to 35 and Zeke saw more touches too, basically they played faster

    don't expect radical change, but they need a viable RB to spell Zeke, and a real LG/C like real bad

    how many teams have led the nfl in rushing and won a super bowl?
    it is very hard to maintain the most carries in the NFL and continue at a high level
    it takes 7/+ real good OL, (or 5 of 'em and a ton of luck)

    by what standard other than your opinion is Dak an "awful passer"?

    before answering consider this Dak led a 3-5 team to 10-6 record to win the NFCE (for the 2nd time in 3 years) and did so with a 70%+ comp rate while taking 28 sacks

    that's not a bad audition for 9 digit contract

    Blimey!
    Dak's inaccuracy eludes you?

    You can optimize Zeke's contributions in more ways than simply giving him a ton of carries and relying on the OL to win their match ups.

    I've no clue if Garrett will impose his somewhat evolving system onto Moore, or if Moore will have free reign. All the pieces are there for a successful offense - especially with the return of Travis Frederick and hopefully a TE1 via draft, FA or Blake Jarwin making The Leap. They need to add a RB, a T, and a slot WR for depth.

    Hopefully Zeke gets used far more in the passing game.

    Kellen is the all time winningest QB in college history....why, surely not his physical abilities. He played in a scheme where they used misdirection and timing.

    He had 95 targets and 77 receptions this year. Most on the team in both categories, and most receptions a Cowboy receiver has had since 2014. That’s plenty

    The type of targets he got were a joke though.

    They weren't using him as a receiver. They were using him as a check down guy.

    I think Dallas will look to continue to maintain a balance within the offense and Zeke will be just as important but there are things they can do within the passing game to help open up the run game more so than they did this past season.

    He’s still a RB. They aren’t going to frequently pull him out of the backfield to use as a wideout. His yards per reception are comparable with what the Steelers get from Laveon Bell.

    They don't have to pull him out of the backfield and line him up at receiver. I don't want him lined up at receiver very often.

    There are plenty of designed routes they can use out of the backfield.

    He was just a check down option in this offense. Nothing more.

    The question was about using him more, not differently, but even so, Zeke actually did line up as a wideout a number of times, and there were plenty of other times he was used on screens, or plays designed to take the DBs deep in coverage to open up underneath opportunities for Zeke to catch the ball and make something happen. Sure there were a lot of check downs too, but that goes with the territory for any RB.
