Thursday brought us the news that wasn’t really news because it has been common knowledge for a week or so now Dallas Cowboys Deonte Thompson Jersey
, but Kellen Moore was officially named the Cowboys’ new offensive coordinator and Jon Kitna was announced as the new quarterbacks coach. Moore, who will turn 30 this summer, seems likely to call the plays, although he will have input from tight ends coach Doug Nussmeier, Kitna, and Jason Garrett, and probably a little from Dak Prescott.But while everyone was obsessing over the official announcement, other news broke that the Cowboys will not extend Garrett’s contract despite early reports saying otherwise. That means that Garrett will essentially be coaching for his job in 2019, and if he doesn’t do enough to earn an extension, Jerry Jones will let the coach’s contract expire at the conclusion of the 2019 season. This puts a lot of pressure on everyone in Dallas, but most notably Garrett and Moore. The Cowboys did a tremendous job of overcoming a terrible 3-5 start and making the playoffs in 2018 Womens Deonte Thompson 2019 Jersey
, and they did so with a defense that kept them in almost every game. However, the offense was the stuff of nightmares, and it had to give a little extra sting as the organization watched the top four offenses in the NFL reach the conference championship games while Dallas extended their conference championship game drought to 23 years. The general perception around this team was that the underwhelming and inefficient offense is what held them back. It obviously wasn’t the defense, and the fact that the team didn’t just spiral out of control after starting 3-5 reflects on Garrett’s grasp on the locker room. But with Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and Amari Cooper on that offense, many were left scratching their heads as to why that unit wasn’t more productive. And it seems as if Dallas found their culprit to blame: offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, whose once-successful offense became too bland and predictable. Garrett made the decision to let Linehan go, and the pressure was on him to find someone who could unlock the secret to making this offense elite again. At one point, it seemed as if Jerry Jones had his eye on someone from the remaining playoff teams: However, it became very clear that Garrett was looking more so at an in-house guy. Moore and Nussmeier became the two hot names. It seems that Garrett’s assessment of the Cowboys offense was that the scheme and philosophy is fine Cheap Antwaun Woods Youth Jersey
, but that the biggest change was just someone who is more creative with the way they call plays. And that led to Moore. In a way, it’s as if Garrett is betting on himself, as Dallas will still use the same variation of the Air Coryell that they’ve been running since Garrett came to the team in 2007. And it’s hard to fault anyone for betting on themselves. After all, Garrett has had some pretty good success in the past. Perhaps the Joneses are less inclined to fully believe in Garrett after the way they’ve seen this offense perform in the last year and a half. And that is probably the reason that they’re declining to extend Garrett’s contract at this time. They likely see two possible outcomes. One is Garrett ends up being right and Moore brings the innovation and creativity in calling plays that was lacking, and the Cowboys field a dynamic offense that leads to Garrett getting a big fat contract extension. The second is it becomes apparent that the Cowboys are using a scheme that fails to adapt to their personnel and exploit defenses in the way that the Andy Reid’s and Sean McVay’s of the NFL are doing, in which case Dallas can move in a new direction at head coach without having to pay any sort of buyout. But hey, no pressure Kellen.

, media & fans react on social mediaBrett Davis-USA TODAY SportsThe Cowboys sat through an interesting first night of the NFL Draft which saw the NFC East add six players to the division. Washington did its thing and got their quarterback Dwayne Haskins while also trading back up for a falling Montez Sweat. The Philadelphia Eagles traded up ahead of the Texans to make sure they got their left tackle of the future, Andre Dillard. The Giants owned the night, well they owned the headlines at least, by making three very interesting selections including selecting QB Daniel Jones at sixth overall. Now, we have made it to day two, the Cowboys own the 58th pick and 90th pick in the second and third rounds respectively. With their first pick, 58th overall, the Cowboys went after explosive defensive tackle Trysten Hill of UCF.Lots of Cowboys’ beat experts like Jane Slater, Bryan Broaddus, and David Helman had called this days ago but many believed that safety would be the target.Why it makes sense: Trysten Hill may not be everyone’s top-rated defensive tackle but the Cowboys have been hunting 3-techniques.
