    Here's some more from Owning's write up on Alexander


    Well, today we have a differing opinion from John Owning of the Fanrags Sports Network. He agrees that Alexander will bring change as Halprin noted, but is not dismissive of the move like Walker.

    Owning, as is his wont, breaks down film to illustrate why he thinks Alexander’s arrival in Dallas might be a good thing.

    Do yourself a favor and check out the whole article, as it’s well-written, concise and provides several notable insights. Specifically:

    The popular narrative regarding Alexander is he primarily runs a power-blocking scheme. In reality, Alexander ran more than 50% zone blocking schemes in Cincinnati.

    Changes in run-blocking concepts will be subtle and will include more plays with pulling lineman and combination schemes (with one side using man-on-man blocking and the other using a two-man zone scheme)

    Real change is more likely to come in the pass protection department. Alexander teaches a “low hands” technique designed to keep offensive lineman from losing their balance. In addition, lineman are taught to use their hands independently, rather than together in a traditional two-handed “punch” technique. Owning thinks La’el Collins, in particular, could benefit from this technique.

    One last nugget worth noting, using Owning’s own words:

    But as unorthodox as his techniques are, it is hard to argue that they aren’t effective — the Bengals, on average, allowed the least amount of QB hits in the NFL from 2009-2015, per Pro Football Focus. This year, Dallas — with three-All-Pros — allowed 26 QB hits (15th most in the NFL) while Cincinnati — a team without a single Pro Bowler on its offensive line — allowed just 10 QB hits (least in the NFL).


    It’s an interesting, insightful read and, just maybe, illustrates the Cowboys’ front office might know what they’re doing.
    This needs to be the final season of Garrett & his staff. The greatest coaches on the planet should be candidates to lead the best org in sports. The days of teams blowing the Cowboys’ doors off in halftime adjustments needs to end. Time for change, new direction and a new voice

    In any event, you've accomplished the near impossible......to have a thread closed/locked on DCU.
