    Former Cowboys WR Cole Beasley Praises New OC Kellen Moore

    Cole Beasley hasn't had many nice things to say about his former team since leaving the for the in . The receiver has criticized his role with the team, the offensive scheme under , and even taken indirect shots at the team's practice and training facilities. But despite whatever hard feelings Beasley has towards the Cowboys, that didn't stop him from praising the potential of new Kellen Moore.

    In an article published Monday by The Athletic, Beasley discussed his issues with how he was used and valued by Dallas in recent years. Responding to the negative backlash that the article created, Beasley tweeted the following yesterday:

    There's some irony in Cole asking others to not take thing personally, given how he's handled his exit from the Cowboys. But that's another topic for another time.

    The thing that caught my eye was his subsequent reaction to one of the replies.

    We've already heard positive things from , , and others out of the Cowboys camp regarding Kellen Moore's work so far. To now hear this praise from a former teammate is also encouraging, and especially given Cole's overall feelings about the organization right now.

    Beasley was able to observe Moore's firsthand in 2018 during Kellen's one year as the . They were also teammates from 2015-2017, with Beasley being an important part of the during Moore's primary playing moments during the 2015 season.

    Despite his inexperience, Kellen Moore's rise to the Offensive Coordinator position has generated a lot of positive reaction from current and former teammates and coaches. The general confidence in what he can do, even being called a “genius” by some, is very exciting for all Cowboys followers.

    Of course, the perception that anyone is better than Scott Linehan is out there. It's not accurate; Linehan helped the Cowboys have multiple winning seasons, division titles, and playoff appearances during his time here. There are far worse offensive coordinators out there.

    What current players likely appreciate about Moore is his youth and ingenuity, perhaps bringing more things to the NFL that they saw in their college days. They also appreciate that Kellen has had to fight to get to this point, overcoming being an undrafted QB thanks to his smarts and work ethic.

    We can officially count Cole Beasley among those who expect big things from Kellen Moore as the Cowboys' new Offensive Coordinator. Given the source, it's a vote of confidence that carries some real weight.

    I’m sorry but Scotty L’s success has everything to do with talent and very little to do with his ability. This team should have been at least in the NFC title game.

    Kellen Moore is still unproven, particularly at being able to make adjustments at halftime to counter what opponents were doing but we know that was Scotty L’s weakest link.

    Scott’s offence was so predictable. Hell, i use to call the plays from my couch. Kellen will be a re-freshing change that you will see right away.

    IMO, Kellen will set his sights on being Unpredictable. Which is the opposite of Linehan. Kellen will have growing pains I’m sure and hopefully that will come short term and I’m sure that when we lose, all we will here is Moore isn’t doing this or that and we are no better off. Well I feel that Garrett is on his last leg (yr) and he has given himself the best chance at succeeding. The defense under Marinelli and Kris Richard’s 2nd yr as the secondary/DC coach will be top 5 in the league this yr! No Doubt! Our Offense is the question mark that everyone anticipates that Dallas won’t be that good, but watch out, Don’t sleep on Big D in 2019/20. We very well may be that GOOD! Early Season prediction 11-5. 2nd seed and a shot at winning the NFC Championship game!!
