Cowboys Need to Return to Dominance up Front

Former starting tweeted something on Friday that rings true.

He said the for Dallas was inconsistent last season, yet they still finished first in yards and points per game.

For the he noted that for them to win games when it matters, they need a few things to happen, some of which I have harped on all . The needs to stay healthy and return to dominance.

Run the offense through and . We all know how this has to go, the team is built to run the football, and you have possibly the best backfield in all of football. Find ways to make it work.

People who study the game understand what they have to do, it’s not so much the Cowboys don’t stick with this , but it feels as if sometimes they shoot themselves in the foot by not even giving themselves a chance to stick with it.

Robert Griffin III on Twitter: “The @dallascowboys offense was inconsistent last year and still finished 1ST IN YARDS AND POINTS PER GAME.But for the Boys to win when it matters, the O-line has to stay healthy and return to DOMINANCE. Then running the offense through Zeke and Pollard will be LETHAL all year. / Twitter”

The Cowboys have dealt with numerous to their offensive line over the years, so RG3 has a point here. They’ll also have to hope Elliott stays healthy. Even though Pollard is capable of stepping in for him, it’s a lot harder for teams to gameplan for them when both are healthy.

When next season gets here, it becomes much easier said than done. Unfortunately, that seems to ring true. Game plans become different, legs get tired, and injuries start to mount.

This was a topic of conversation last season, and here we sit talking about it again. It will never go away. It seems so simple for us to talk about it from afar.

Pollard has been vocal about wanting to be featured more often so I expect Dallas to get back to what they do best next season.

What do you think?

  1. I don’t think he’s talking about last season…. I think he’s talking about when the running game was dominant!! Even though your wrong about them not being dominant all season…. They were running the ball really well the first 5 or 6 weeks into the season…. It wasn’t until Zeke tore his PCL when, when the running game started to go down hill!!

  2. I’m sorry. what running game was dominant? Oh you mean the 9ers and Rams. I saw half the offensive line go down with injuries or suspension and they were not dominant at any point all season. Effective in the first half of the season is what happened. Go watch some film.

  3. All of you guys opinions are the same argument as this writer’s point no one is making an argument in favor of the offensive line as the OFL gones so go the Cowboys it is a know fact that they must become great again for now I’ll settle for them being solid come playoffs hopefully they will have become great again

  4. Running the ball is not what the Boys do best.
    The Boys could not run the ball even against 5 in the box at the end of 2021.
    Moore’s run scheme is primitive and his offense line was dominated….you do not just go run on the defense with that combo.
    The Elliott run game myth persists…the Boys have not dominated running since 2016 .

  5. Yep, after the first 6 to 7 games injuries, coaching, play calling and just poor performance all combined to erase what started out as a real nice running game to begin the season.
    But like you said, after that, they looked as ineffective or worse as amy of the previous years following 2016. They need to figure out how to run the ball. Period.
