The Dallas Cowboys did an excellent job covering their bases in free agency. Yet there’s one big question mark on offense heading into the 2019 season.
The Dallas Cowboys helped themselves signing wide receiver Randall Cobb after losing former receiver Cole Beasley to the Buffalo Bills. They also were able to bring back fullback Jamize Olawale and swing tackle Cameron Fleming. But they still have one big question that can’t be answered until the season starts.
That question is how will new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore handle his new role? That truly is the biggest question mark left for the team. Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett seem to have a lot of faith in his ability to lead this offense.
That’s a relief but also worrisome as well. It’s a relief because both men have been around Moore and they know what he has planned for this offense. But it’s also concerning because last year we heard both Jones and Garrett say that this team didn’t need to have a number one receiver to be successful on offense and look how that turned out.
This team putting a lot on faith in someone who has never called a play in his career. That doesn’t include the Pro Bowl, which Moore did call, because that’s not a real game anymore. The one-year quarterback coach is going to have to hit the ground running and limit his mistakes.
Not only that but when the team falls behind can Moore rise to the occasion and call plays to lead this team to a come from behind win? If he can great, but if he can’t he’s going to have to deal with fan anger and the media picking his playcalling apart. Moore has a tough road ahead of him and I don’t envy him but he has the personnel to get the job done.
I sincerely hope Kellen Moore succeeds. But I have a feeling it’s going to be an up-and-down season with inexperienced playcaller at the helm.
How do you think Kellen Moore will do calling the plays for the Dallas Cowboys’ offense this season? Let us know in the comment section below.
