For those of you who aren’t familiar the game 9 Ball, It can best be described as a very popular fast paced billiards game that was invented in the early 1920’s to add some much needed excitement to the game of pool.
Based on the theory, what I am proposing this week, is that Cowboys Head Coach/Offense Coordinator Jason Garrett Implement the Cowboys own version of the No-Huddle fast break offense cleverly nicknamed 9 Ball (Obviously named after QB Tony Romo who wears # 9).
As we all know, this offense has had some success in the NFL, especially the K-Gun offense run by the Buffalo Bills in the early 1990’s. The main reason for requesting my change is that this type of high risk fast paced offense not only fits what Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo does best which is Improvise on fast paced broken down plays, but it will at the same time combat the very talented defense line of the current Superbowl champion and division rival NY Giants. This type of offense will keep the Giants players and defensive staff confused, and it will not allow them to substitute and rotate lineman so we can attack their weak secondary. The Cowboys do indeed have the personnel to make this change thanks to many veteran starting wide receivers that have been together for long periods of time and have chemistry with Romo, naturally I am speaking of Jason Witten, Miles Austin, and talented up and coming star Dez Bryant. Another reason supporting the change is that the Cowboys also have run the same offensive scheme since Garrett has arrived back in 2007, so the skill players are all familiar with the playbook and the needed audible plays that can be run in the pressure situations. Finally, the Cowboys also have two talented running backs in DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones who have a knack of being able to catch the ball very efficiently out of the backfield, which is required for check downs that will be needed as an outlet for Romo to keep the pace moving.
Let’s face it in today’s NFL you need every strategic advantage you can have, the Cowboys have all the pieces in place to make a Superbowl run this year, all this writer is proposing is that we make this run an exciting memorable Sprint that Cowboy fans will never forget.
