While Christmas has passed, the 2019 regular season does not end until Sunday, December 29th. The Dallas Cowboys have some re-inventing to do, so I have composed a wish list for some changes I’d like to see in the offseason.
After a dominating performance against the New York Giants in week one, I don’t think anyone affiliated with the Dallas Cowboys expected the team to end with a possible 8-8 season. That said, it brings back memories of the early Jason Garrett years where the team also finished… 8-8.
While this season has largely been a disappointment, we have been able to clearly identify what is and isn’t working.
A year after passing game coordinator and defensive backs coach Kris Richard helped the Cowboys defense become nearly elite, his defensive scheme and coaching has somehow sent the Cowboys back in time to the days of no defense.
Promoting former QB coach Kellen Moore to offensive coordinator has helped this offense become one of the best in the league, but lapses in judgement continue to impact this team in the most important times. (An issue very common throughout the Jason Garrett era)
Then there’s the special teams unit…
There’s definitely a lot that has gone wrong in a season filled with so much potential and the Cowboys will have to revisit the drawing board this offseason. How do we fix the defense? Who does the team hire to lead the team? Who is signing a contract extension?
There are a lot of questions, so I composed a wish list of how I’d like the Cowboys to fix some things.
So without further ado….
