Do you think we go back to basics?

Kalil is arguably the best center in the NFL. There's no doubt that his loss will hurt this team and perhaps even it's philosophy. On any given play you could catch Kalil out in the flats and upfield while pulling to block. I suspect that those days me be over for this offense.

Rivera admitted to changing his play call in the Seahawks game and not running Cam on a Sneak on 4th down against the Seahawks. I'm just wondering if it will continue to change our philosophy on the offensive side of the ball.

I suspect this should open up more playing time for Jonathan Stewart in passing situations to add some more blocking support. Jonathan is a beast in pass support as we all know. I'm also of the opinion that we may even do more conventional plays out of the backfield. More north to south and runs off of the guards and tackles.

It will be interesting to see how we adjust moving forward. I hope that we can overcome it, but my gut says that we won't. At a minimum we may see exponentially less of the read option though. I guess we'll see come Sunday. I figured this could generate some good conversation until then though.

Thats precisely what the Cowboys will expect us to do.

Instead, double reverse run option flea flicker.

sure, a basic hook and lateral, a basic statue of liberty, a basic triple option, a basic double pass...

Anyone know if Kalil was "designated for return"? or do we have another IR player with that. Meaning he can come back off IR at any point in the season.

I really hope they start running some more straight power plays TBH, our o-line gets a lot less athletic so stringing plays out sideline to sideline won't be good for our o-line, which means the read option is not a good idea. Plays take too long to develop

it would make a lot of sense to cut out the flashy stuff and to try and get cam to get the ball out of his hands earlier. it would make a lot of sense to use the RBs and pound the cowboys to death. it would make sense to use a lot of screen passes. it would make sense to have cam spread the ball around to other receivers instead of focusing the game on just him and smitty.

don't see any of that happening. i see chud sitting there at his desk trying to outsmart everyone and come up with something that nobody has ever thought of before. that one play that will turn everything around and turn momentum our way.

i see cam thinking that it's up to him to win or lose and at the first sign of a mistake lose faith in himself and takes the whole team with him.

ugh.

the only thing that gives me any bit of optimism this game is that we are facing the biggest choke artist in the league. this is a game that the cowboys should win. that doesn't usually work out for them, esp. this year.

with Kalil out, and not having a stable middle on that oline, thats gonna force chud to be even more flashy and have cam running around more. dont look for any rb draws up the middle for the remainder of the year.

This is conventional wisdom around here, but it's just not true. Jonathon has consistently been one of the worst pass blocking RB's in the league.

I don't expect any changes. Why change something that is so flashy. Even if your Ferrari does not start its still a Ferrari right?.... Right?
