Meat on the bone: How Dak Prescott and the offense are leaving

plays on the field We all know the Dallas Cowboys offense has been stuck in neutral this season. There is no shortage of theories as to why. Yesterday our own Connor Livesay noted how Dak Prescott is failing with his mechanics. There has also been plenty of conversation about the play-calling and scheme of Scott Linehan. The basic theory holds that he needs to update his scheme Womens Dak Prescott Jersey , and the team overall including Jason Garrett need to understand the new NFL is about the passing game. Our own RJ Ochoa covers that here. But what if the Cowboys could be succeeding as they are currently constructed? What if the plays are there, they just aren&#8217;t executing? That could be the case so let&#8217;s look at some examples of that from the Texans game. This will be disproportionately laying blame with Dak Prescott, but as the quarterback he does take on that responsibility. Play 1: Sometimes you need to break the rulesThis play was a third down on the first drive. You can just make out the first-down marker at the six-yard line. The screenshot is from the start of the play. Before we go any further, let&#8217;s acknowledge that this call was a screen to Ezekiel Elliott to the right side. But look at what Dak Prescott sees right in front of him (blue lines). Cole Beasley is running an out route (red line) and no one is even close to covering him, it&#8217;s a simple pitch-and-catch first down at minimum. Yes, it&#8217;s a screen call to Zeke, and yes that&#8217;s maybe where the coaches told him to go, but you have a simple first down right in front of you, no linemen are downfield and the opposite side receivers are not blocking, just take it and get a new set of downs. Instead, the screen is blown up and they kick a field goal. And for those wondering, yes, Beasley is an option on this play because you can see the way he turns his head at the top of the route looking for the ball and his disappointment when he doesn&#8217;t get it (shown on a replay). Maybe Dak was just following the rules here, but he should have broken them and taken what the defense gave him.Play 2: Push it past the sticksThis was a third-down play. The blue line is an approximation of the first down line although the 20-yard line is more accurate. Dak is in the pocket and is not being pressured as Zeke has picked up the blitz. Look at Tavon Austin and the red arrow which is where his route is going. He&#8217;s got open field with only a safety over six yards away. That is wide open in the NFL. Instead, Dak checked down to Swaim (black circle). If he hits Swaim in stride maybe he can fight for the first down, but he and Dak are not on the same page, the pass makes Swaim go to the ground and the play is dead. Why Dak didn&#8217;t take a shot at Austin is confusing. Play 3: Quick release wins the dayThis seems like a small thing but it&#8217;s costing the Cowboys offense. Here Gallup is running a simple &#8220;in&#8221; pattern. At this point in the play, Dak has performed the play-action with Zeke and has his back foot planted (blue circle). He is looking right at Gallup (yellow line) as Gallup is making his break in (red arrow). You can see the corner is too far off to make a play. Dak must throw the ball right now and he&#8217;s got an easy six or seven yards on the play. Instead, for some reason, he hesitates.Here is that same play a second or so later. Look how far away Zeke has run now (black line) showing the delay in Dak&#8217;s throw. The red &#8220;x&#8221; shows the spot Gallup was in the first screen shot where Dak should have thrown the ball. Now he&#8217;s drifted in (yellow line) and the corner (blue circle) is closing the gap. By the time Dak throws and the ball gets to Gallup, the corner breaks up the play and it&#8217;s incomplete. The Cowboys just gave up and easy completion for six or seven yards. Play 4: Bad play-call Youth Brett Maher Jersey , but someone is open anywayThis is the infamous Deonte Thompson interception that Allen Hurns called out. There is no doubt that two deep curls against this defense is not ideal. We are not here to argue that fact. But let&#8217;s look at the play. The red circle is Thompson running a curl with a defender on his inside. The red line shows his pattern turning right into the defender. I have no idea why Dak would choose to make that throw. It&#8217;s obvious there will be a defender right there. Now look at the backside. There Tavon Austin (black circle) is running a mirror route but his defender is on the outside. When he curls in (black line) he is going to be open. That&#8217;s where the ball should go. Maybe a poor play-call, but there still was opportunity on the play. Play 5: It&#8217;s not all on the receiverThis is the play where Tavon Austin dropped the pass on the sidelines that was foolishly challenged by Jason Garrett. Everybody blamed Austin, and he does deserve blame, he has to hold on to that ball. But the fact of the matter is he should have never been in that position. Look above. Dak (blue circle) is just about to feel pressure but at this moment he still has a clear path. He is looking at Austin (yellow line) but doesn&#8217;t let go. You can see that Austin (red circle) is going to beat his man when he cuts out, the corner is still running back and hasn&#8217;t even flipped his hips to the sideline. If Dak uncorks one right now anticipating Austin&#8217;s break, it should be a pretty easy catch for Austin. Instead...Dak delays his throw which allows the corner to close the gap with Austin (blue circle). He also throws it high so Austin has to jump (red arrow). So instead of a pitch-and-catch, you got a throw that makes the receiver leap in the air, that allows the corner to close the gap, and makes the receiver walk the tightrope on the sideline. Sure, Austin still should have made the catch, but all of that mess could have been avoided. Play 6: The offensive line isn&#8217;t helpingThis one is on the offensive line. That blue circle is Dak getting buried by the pass rush, and he was scrambling in the pocket from the start. Just look at what he would have had if the line had blocked. That&#8217;s Gallup at the 50-yard line (black circle) wide open. That's a good gain and a first down. That&#8217;s not even the worst part, the red circle/arrow is Austin on his route into open territory. That yellow circle/arrow is the corner who is actually turned the wrong way and has to circle back around. Austin is going for six on this play if Prescott is given any kind of time. Play 7: When you scramble, keep your eyes downfield and trust your armThis play is late in the game when the Cowboys are trying to drive for a go-ahead touchdown. Dak (red circle/arrow) is scrambling to his right. The blue lines represent his field of vision. He has two open potential targets. The yellow circle is Geoff Swaim which is his best option. The black circle is Michael Gallup who is also open. Granted, there are defenders underneath meaning Dak would have to drop the ball in the window, but by NFL standards that&#8217;s a pretty large window. Instead, Dak doesn&#8217;t choose to risk it, scrambles all the way to the sideline and unloads a last-second bullet to Gallup that is too far outside for him to catch. Sure, this isn&#8217;t the easiest throw to make, but Dak has made them before, he just didn&#8217;t trust himself here.Play 8: Oh for just one blockThis is the very next play. It&#8217;s 3rd and 14 and the Cowboys call a screen. Zeke (blue circle/arrow) is catching the ball and will be heading downfield. Look at all that open green field with Connor Williams in front. That Texans defender in the black circle Youth Maliek Collins Jersey , he never even turns around to recognize a screen and runs down field with the Cowboys receiver. That red circle is Zack Martin, inside that same circle and obscured by Zack is a Texans defender. If Zack is able to get ahead of the defender and make the block, I guarantee you Zeke runs for the first down and maybe a lot more. Instead, the defender beats Martin's attempt at a block and manages to grab Elliott from behind and bring him down. That is the difference between maybe scoring a go-ahead touchdown and kicking a field goal. This review maybe was unduly harsh on Prescott, he obviously can&#8217;t be expected to make everyone of these plays. But if he makes maybe half of them, or the offensive line makes a couple of key blocks along the way, the Cowboys go on to win that game on Sunday. Yes, Linehan/Garrett need to expand their thinking and their playbook. Yes, the Cowboys receivers need to do a better job in some cases. But if Dak can cut down on some of these misses, Dallas isn&#8217;t that far from being competitive.Looking at Dak Prescott&#8217;s first 37 starts versus Tony Romo&#8217;s last 37 is very interesting People are always going to compare Dak Prescott to Tony Romo. It&#8217;s the way sports work.The 2016 debate of Dak or Tony will live in infamy as one of the more spirited ones to ever grace the hallowed halls of BTB. Thankfully we&#8217;re past that, but with Dak playing poorly to begin the season (and dipping during a chunk of last year) many have been yearning for the days of Niner once more. It&#8217;s hard to prove either side when you have a debate like this. Times change, teams change, rules change, but time is so important that it must be said once more that times change. We can never truly compare person A to person B because we can&#8217;t simulate the exact same environment for both experiments. People try to compare though, and they do so in clever ways. People look at common denominators like their home records, road records, and records during certain stretch of time like their first 16 games for example. As we&#8217;re looking at 100% of Dak Prescott&#8217;s body of work here it&#8217;s really not fair to compare him to all of Romo&#8217;s because that one is larger.Let&#8217;s take a look at Dak Prescott versus the final version of Tony RomoESPN&#8217;s Mike Sando did something a bit interesting on Tuesday night and compared all of 37 of Prescott&#8217;s starts so far to Romo&#8217;s final 37 ones. Give it a gander for yourself.Romo&#8217;s final 37 starts begins with the December 16th, 2012 game where he helped propel the Cowboys to an overtime win over the Pittsburgh Steelers (the Brandon Carr interception). It encompasses the final three games of that season, 15 games in 2013, 15 games in 2014 (what is agreed to be his finest season), and the four games he started in 2015 (although he didn&#8217;t finish two of them). Obviously Tony Romo threw more Youth La'el Collins Jersey , explaining more yards and touchdownsPhoto by Ronald Martinez/Getty ImagesYou&#8217;ll remember that Dallas was throwing the ball like crazy in 2012 and 2013 (Romo threw it 122 times just in those final three games of the former season) and that it wasn&#8217;t until 2014 when they landed on the run-heavy mentality that they know and employ today. Obviously that&#8217;s factored in with Romo to a degree.Romo trounces Prescott when it comes to attempts, completions, yards, and attempts. Interestingly Dak holds his own when it comes to yards per attempt, yards per completion, and even completion percentage. What&#8217;s worrisome is that Prescott has only eight less interceptions than Romo despite almost 100 less attempts, but obviously he&#8217;s been bad as of late. This feels obvious, but we need to qualify this whole discussion with the fact that part of the time included here is the 2014 season which, again, is generally agreed upon to be the finest of Romo&#8217;s career. We&#8217;re not looking to prove a point necessarily, but it&#8217;s important context that Romo is wearing his finest suit in this sample size.Dak Prescott has won just as much, he runs far more (duh), and he even has a higher QBRPhoto by Tom Pennington/Getty ImagesThere&#8217;s no denying that Dak Prescott is a far more lethal weapon on the ground that Tony Romo. He has over 600 more yards on the ground and double digits there where Romo doesn&#8217;t have any. This part can&#8217;t be debated.The Cowboys obviously don&#8217;t ask Prescott to do as much through the air as they did Romo which is evidenced in the number of passing attempts that he has. The run-heavy mindset was developed over the course of Romo&#8217;s career whereas Dak was born in it. The offensive focus throughout Prescott&#8217;s entire tenure has been Ezekiel Elliott save for the six-game stretch when he was suspended in 2017.What&#8217;s most important to note here is that Dak Prescott is equal in the number that matters - wins. Winning is the name of the game in football and if you do that then everything else is all the more forgivable. This is partly why Dak has been under such scrutiny as of late... because the Cowboys aren&#8217;t winning.It&#8217;s an interesting debate and it always will beObviously Prescott got off to an insane start for his Cowboys career with 13 wins as a rookie. That&#8217;s almost a third of the wins he has at this point, and he&#8217;s only five games into his third season. What Romo did throughout his career will always be criminally underrated, but the reality is that we may romanticize it a bit when we look back and only remember the good.Prescott has an opportunity to change the narrative this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. If he&#8217;s able to have success against the ferocious defense that they have, including the player in Jalen Ramsey that the Cowboys selected Zeke over, people will inch their way closer to him. Again, that&#8217;s just the way sports goes. Coincidentally as Dak tries to right himself in the eyes of Cowboys fans all over the world there will be one man watching from up above telling us all about it. His name is Tony Romo, and he&#8217;ll be on call this Sunday at AT&T Stadium.
