#1 Ezekiel Elliott had a quiet 100-yard game by his standards in von panxing18 22.03.2019 02:31

the Dallas Cowboys' rout of the Jacksonville Jaguars.The star running back spoke the loudest after the 40-7 win on the home-road discrepancy for a .500 team that's perfect at AT&T Stadium and winless with three mostly anemic offensive showings on the road.Up next before Dallas' open week: a trip to NFC East-leading Washington (3-2) Womens Connor Williams Jersey , a half-game ahead of the Cowboys and defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia, tied at 3-3."Obviously it's something we can do, but we need to do it," Elliott, emphasizing "need," said Sunday after rushing for 106 yards and a touchdown. "If we keep not winning on the road, we're not going to make the playoffs."Dallas has three touchdowns on the road 鈥?one in each game. The Cowboys are averaging nearly 100 yards per game more at home than on the road, and the numbers are particularly stark in the first half.At home, the Cowboys have a 210-125 edge in yardage before halftime compared to a 221-103 deficit at the break on the road. It's not exactly the formula for taking a crowd out of the game."We've been a good road team in the past," coach Jason Garrett said. "We have a young team. We have to understand how to handle the conditions on the road."After some pregame pumping up for Dallas from UFC star Conor McGregor , Cole Beasley had his first two touchdown catches of the season against the Jaguars.Dak Prescott threw for 151 of his 183 yards before halftime and had 82 yards rushing, the second-best total for a quarterback in franchise history behind Roger Staubach's 90 yards in 1971.Prescott had two other career numbers: his longest run, a 28-yarder after escaping a sack, and his longest scoring run 鈥?from 17 yards after a fake to Elliott for Dallas' first TD.The 2016 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year didn't have to throw in the second half Youth Byron Jones Jersey , so the team's 30th-ranked passing game coming in couldn't really be judged by another sub-200-yard game."I was talking to Dak the other day and we talked about how this game could set us up for the rest of the season," said receiver Allen Hurns, who didn't have a catch despite five targets. "We've still got to focus on trying to win on the road."Things to consider after the Jaguars (3-3) had season lows in total offense (204 yards) and yards rushing (65) while running just 47 plays to 72 for the Cowboys:HOBBLED RUN GAMELeonard Fournette's availability with a balky hamstring will remain one of the big topics for Jacksonville, which is on its third left tackle in Josh Walker while All-Pro left guard Andrew Norwell has been a disappointment as a big-money free agent.The Jaguars want to run 鈥?they're 0-3 when they don't get to 20 carries. Four-time All-Pro Jamaal Charles, unsigned before joining the Jaguars this past week, got a taste with five carries for 5 yards and a 5-yard catch. His role going forward will be something to watch. Starter T.J. Yeldon had 41 yards on just eight carries."We're pretty banged up, but we've got guys that can play at any position," said quarterback Blake Bortles, who was 15 of 26 for 149 yards after establishing career highs in yards passing the previous two weeks. "We expect a lot out of everybody out there."DALLAS D-LINEThe defensive front of the Cowboys is getting close to full strength, and could need the help with top pass rusher DeMarcus Lawrence trying to play through a shoulder injury.Defensive tackle David Irving made his season debut after serving a four-game suspension and missing his first possible game for personal reasons. He had an early pressure on Bortles.End Randy Gregory had his first sack since returning from substance-abuse suspensions that sidelined him for 30 of 32 games over two seasons. Gregory had a team-high three QB hits. Tackle Maliek Collins returned after missing three games with a knee injury and had his second sack of the season."With that particular lineup, it's an unbelievable rush group," owner Jerry Jones said.EARLY GOOSE EGGSJacksonville is in a three-way tie for first in the AFC South with one of those teams, Houston, visiting Sunday. A good place for the Jaguars to start would be to start faster. They were outscored a combined 44-0 in the first half of losses to Kansas City and Dallas. The Cowboys scored on all four first-half possessions against the NFL's No. 1 defense. "I'm going to figure it out http://www.thecowboysfootballauthentic.com/jeff-heath-jersey-authentic , but it's my job to make sure that our team comes out and they're ready to play," coach Doug Marrone said. The Cowboys may be looking for a new way of formulating their offensive plan but that doesn’t mean they are going to completely overhaul their philosophies. Scott Linehan wasn’t let go because of the scheme, he was let go because he lacked the ability to evolve the scheme. There are a lot of coaches in the NFL that are praised for their play-calling innovation but the Andy Reid’s and Sean McVay’s of the world are not creating new schematic philosophies from scratch. They are extending and adding to their playbooks, it’s simple evolution. Bill Belichick, arguably the greatest coach ever, has mastered that ability to evolve from year-to-year, even game-to-game, it’s the biggest edge the Patriots have, besides Tom Brady.Some of the Cowboys faithful weren’t too pleased with the news that was circulating over the weekend in regards to some coaching changes the team is pondering. It was reported that the Cowboys aren’t interested in worldwide searches for play-callers but instead are looking to promote from within. That means that Doug Nussmeier will play a bigger role as will Jon Kitna and Kellen Moore, which causes anxiety for some because of some strong ties to Linehan.Jason Garrett’s first job was in Miami in Linehan’s offense, Kellen Moore mastered the concepts of the Air-Coryell offense in two backup quarterback stints with Linehan. After retirement, Moore was hand-picked to coach quarterbacks in Dallas, just as Linehan did for Garrett in Miami. Doug Nussmeier was the quarterback for Idaho from 1990-1993 under then offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. On recommendation from Linehan, Nussmeier made a name for himself calling the offense under Nick Saban at Alabama. Just because a group of guys happen to be branches of the same coaching tree doesn’t mean they don’t have fresh ideas. Linehan wasn’t interested in collective input and dug in when he was asked branch out. This was a problem that was brewing for two years http://www.cowboyscheapauthenticstore.com/tyrone-crawford-jersey-cheap , players were feeling pigeon-holed and embarrassed by the staleness while Linehan blamed their own execution. There looks to be a shift in the offensive brain-trust for some type of gameplan committee between assistant coaches, Jason Garrett, and quarterback Dak Prescott. The constituent of fans that are just tired of Jason Garrett and wanted to clean house have merits in their sentiments. However, facing the reality of 3-5, this staff was all looking at being unemployed. Their response was what changed the course even if it ended with another divisional round loss. Despite the dysfunction, the Cowboys won 11 games and Garrett was safe the moment they defeated the Seahawks in the wildcard round, if not before then. If you approved the Cowboys keeping Jason Garrett in charge, you have to understand that a complete renovation and scheme change was never in the cards. Changes in concepts? Sure. A few more wrinkles and different opinions on how to implement them is certain to happen, but it’s naive to think an overhaul was imminent, that may come eventually but not yet.No two coaches interpretations of fundamentals are alike so we’re certain to see several differences. If you can think back to Garrett’s days as the play-caller, his offense wasn’t a carbon-copy of Linehan’s. For one, finding tight end mismatches were much more prevalent in Garrett’s offense than his former mentors. Though Nussmeier is a believer in the vertical passing offense, he loved using misdirection at Alabama, something that Amari Cooper was instrumental in executing. Nussmeier and Garrett were successful toward the end of this year at opening up the middle of the field Youth Allen Hurns Jersey , an area Linehan avoided for most of the year. Jon Kitna has that “gamer” tag that is often given to Dak Prescott but he will be tasked to help the young star tighten his mechanics. As far as Kellen Moore is concerned, he’s always been groomed for coaching and had some interesting videos resurface of him explaining Boise State’s offense to Jon Gruden. To paraphrase Moore, it’s about trying to add a variety of ways to execute on offense even if the philosophies are similar, that sounds like evolving. He went on to say how they try to take a lot of their core values and disguise them in order to confuse the defense. It may end up looking different but the objective is the same. The rumors at the end of the season about a decrease of Linehan’s responsibilities and an increased role for Garrett, Nussmeier, and Moore are beginning to hold more weight. These coaches deserve one last opportunity to prove their abilities. Maybe it works and the Dallas offense returns to glory while everyone gets extensions, maybe it doesn’t and major changes are made in 2020. Considering what we saw from the offense in their 8-1 run, the resurgence of Dak Prescott, the impacts of Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Blake Jarwin in the passing game, things are definitely pointing up for this offense. The Cowboys have one of the youngest rosters in the NFL and the coaches hope that a few different ideas or subtle changes will be the difference in 2019. Custom Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys
