Thanks for posting icup.
I don't know what the latest numbers are, but tens days ago or so they had ratings numbers for the NBA and MLB and they were horrendous. Some of the motivation for them to "cancel" games or end the season truly might be because they want to avoid further embarrassment.All these other sports and teams cancelling their seasons and playoffs better not fuck up the NFL season damn it
Pretty interesting quote and it says a lot. I keep liking MM but that's because I've been hungry for a real HC for years. There will be ups and downs but I don't get the feeling that we'll be continuously out-coached. And the players know it......she meant to put "So far, its a totally different environment"
That is exactly how I feel tooPretty interesting quote and it say a lot. I keep liking MM but that's because I've been hungry for a real HC for years. There will be ups and downs but I don't get the feeling that we'll be continuously out-coached. And the players know it......
Yep...I agree Scot. Dak is the question mark, IMO. I think we're going to see things during the game where we step out the box and put players in a position to succeed on both sides of the ball. I know that sounds very cliche but I don't remember a game where I thought we out-schemed, out-planned or had a D on their toes. This was the same way I felt with the D. Just line up and play. Now, there's something to be said for that, but you have to give your team and edge. I'd bet we do a lot of no huddle and attack the D which seemed to be a staple of MM's teams in GB. We just rarely saw anything that made me think that the coach put a wrinkle in the scheme and outfoxed our opponent.That is exactly how I feel too
I always felt that when we went into a game on Sunday that we were ALWAYS going into the game at a disadvantage because of Garrett
Hell, just look at his record vs rookie coaches for proof of that
It no longer feels like we are going to get out coached each week. Or that our own team has to overcome our own coaching to be successful.
Hopefully there will be No more making a player fit the scheme, thereby taking away what said player is really good at. Hopefully they put the players in the best position to make plays.
Now we shall see if MM can unfuck the Garrett coaching out of Dak and let him do what he’s good at.
Cedric Wilson has really had a strong camp.
- Artificial crowd noise is now a practice staple. Coaches using it to simulate game feel, shouting out personnel groups and substitutions over sound. More hand signals. Defense a little late to run off 12th man near goal line on Cole Hikutini TD in back of EZ vs. LB Justin March.
- It’s nearly decision time for Cowboys, who must reduce 80-man roster to 53 by Saturday at 2 p.m. CT. Some spots are close. In 9-on-7 run period, undrafted rookie RBs Darius Anderson and Rico Dowdle alternated reps. Would be easier to evaluate them with live tackling.
- Season opener in 13 days means progressively less work for backup QBs Ben DiNucci and Clayton Thorson. They watched about as much practice as the media. Dak Prescott and Andy Dalton handled every team rep.
- Cedrick Wilson has overcome a checkered injury history to have a strong camp, be Cowboys’ No. 4 WR. So it was a real scare when he rolled left ankle and hobbled to sideline. But that’s all it was. Wilson re-entered and caught a 25-yard TD over middle vs. CB Daryl Worley.
- Cowboys WR Amari Cooper again didn’t participate in team drills. This has become a common occurrence over past three practices. But his activity during individual drills would indicate there is no long-term concern.
- During team period, Cowboys WR Cedrick Wilson caught a slant pass from Dak Prescott with CB Daryl Worley in coverage, sprinting for touchdown.
