    A healthy rested Zeke is dangerous and Seattle knows it. Just listened to few shows mentioning Seattle will go to an extreme degree (9 man boxes if needed) to stop Zeke. This is Dak moment to shine. If he looks pressure in the face and calmly delivers a win then I think Dallas is on their way to being SB contender over next few seasons and Dak should get extension after season.

    However, if some of those Dak pick-6 throws aren't dropped by defenders and Wilson grossly out-shines him I think there will be fire storm of criticism that will last entire off season. For our mental health perspective Dallas needs to win this game.

    Seahags would be making a grave mistake if they line up 9 defenders in the box. Dak, Amari, Beasley and Gallup will make them pay dearly.

    The bigger concern is the Seahags dirty offensive passing illegal picks. They do that every game, all game long, and the officials hardly ever flag them for it.

    Remember, I called it.

    To be honest, I think every team's goal was to stop Zeke and make Dak beat them. In fact, Dak now with Cooper should be licking his chops seeing 8-9 men in the box.

    Linehan better unleash Dak if Seattle goes 8-9 guys in the box. In the first Washington game the Skins sold out to stop the run and Linehan kept running Zek right into it.

    Don’t be stupid this game. Throw the dam ball if they stack the box.

    One thing we seldom do is max protect, TE and Zek block with 3 receivers in the pattern. Let receivers do double/triple move and go long. Give Dak a clean pocket and time to unleash the bomb!

    Dak better RPO while Zeke making a fake run down the middle , either that or a throw to Amari Cooper/ Beasley .

    The Cowboys won 9 games with defenses doing that against them.

    I remember seeing 8 man boxes but rarely 9 man box. Seattle clearly thinks Zeke getting anything going sends them home and thinks that Dak will make mistakes.

    We need to spread the field in the red zone. 4wr + Zeke. Give Zeke room to run.

    Yep they are right up there with the Patriots if not worse. Of course when your WR's are average Joes its probably best.

    Yep, and if they want to double Coop and the LB's cheat up on Zeke...Mr. Jarwin says Hi! It will be up to Dak to deliver. We have the talent across to board to give D's fit's if the O-line can hold up.

    Spread them out. Give the ball to Zek or Dak runs a read option with an option to pass the ball if he keeps it.

    Can't "Battle of Kursk" them. Dak better be running play action all day long. Some draw plays to Zeke, too.

    Seahawks won't have Earl Thomas for this one, so Dak better be throwing his A-game passes.

    As long as the receivers and tight ends can get open, it doesn't matter if Seahawks put 11 in the box.

    Also I think Seahawks will have a spy on Dak. They know its like taking on Russell Wilson himself if he runs. Also worry about those counters against play action when Dak fakes to RB and runs to his right. He gets hammered if the DE is not fooled by that run.

    9+ players in the box occurs on only 1.4% of snaps across the NFL, almost exclusively in goal line and 4th and 1 scenarios.

    In other words, this thread is dumb and the OP should feel bad about it.
