    In case anyone was curious we ran the ball when under center 76% of the time last year.

    We passed the ball from shotgun 83% of the time when in shotgun.

    So oddly enough, if you just guess pass every time we are in shotgun and run every time we are under center you'd be right around 8 out of 10 times....

    Looking at the numbers it's also crazy how much shotgun is used in the NFL these days. We are right at 50/50. But if you look at a team like the Eagles they ran shotgun like 72% of the time. Of course they ran the second most in the NFL from shotgun. 31% of the time they ran from the shotgun formation.

      Of the many things I fault Garrett for, this is not one of them.

        We just dont have the OL play of 2016 to sustain this kind of approach the length of the field anymore. Thats an unrealistic approach. The situation was made worse with our crazy accurate kicker becoming a mere mortal thanks to nagging injuries.

        Teams should strive for 50% run/pass on first and second down.

        What would help is a stronger defense getting us the ball back more often.

          Trade for Earl Thomas and we may be close to that on defense.

          Also I think the OL may be close to 2016 level.

            Yeah with Connor William's and a healthy Smith we could be right there with 2016 again.

                Earl would help, but ultimately hes a band-aid. Hed patch us up for several games, and then paper thin depth will crack under the first injury or more likely the lack of situational preparation will fail us vs Drew or Aaron in the playoffs yet again.

                Nothing replaces building a defense the right way. The 1T is going to dictate a lot, and were going for the very bottom of the barrel in McClain.

                As as for the OL, Im very encouraged with the addition of Williams. But that 2016 line was nasty and Tyron was in his prime. They all stepped up to help the rookie QB. You cant keep rallying like that.

                To expect that that kind of perfect, dominant play ever again would be retarded.

                        McClain is getting 4 million on a one year deal.

                        That he left without a deal goes to show how much the Cowboys undervalue the position.

                        Collins is more of an unknown at this point than we thought given his history of foot injuries.

                        Were in Nick Hayden territory now... under the barrel.
