How the Dallas Cowboys Can Improve in 2022

With a team such as the , improvement is an essential part of the franchise. After a devasting loss in the postseason, we can take a look at some subjects that can be ameliorated on the team.

First up is to look at the . Honestly, not much can be said here. After a season of having the #1 offense in the league, what is there to say? What they should do is just make sure their players are healthy and ready for game day.

While having a rookie star such as , it was a rather good year regarding the as well.

However, with that said, the Cowboys' wasn't having the best stats. Even with a star like , Dallas ranked 20th in the NFL for pass defense. That is a huge part of the defense and is one subject that they need to improve on before the season starts.

A topic that not too many people are focused on is the of the team.

Last season the team performed at peak levels while the play calling was questionable throughout the games. 's coaching skills have been concerning to fans as many speculate that he isn't the right coach for the Cowboys.

If the Cowboys want to improve on coaching they must earn the fans' trust back with better play calls by McCarthy.

Another huge problem that the Cowboys faced last season was . Yes, it sends shivers down my spine as well when talking about it, with so many times throughout the season where precious seconds were lost or given to the other team. However, one incident stands out more than others.

January 16th, 2022 was the playoff game against the and the Dallas Cowboys. If only the skill of clock management was with the Cowboys that day. With fourteen seconds left and on the 40-yard line, all Dallas had to do was get a touchdown for the win.

Instead, Mike McCarthy calls a play designed to have run up the middle with no timeouts. This led the clock to tick off and expire with the Dallas Cowboys losing. This play call is what drove fans off the deep end.

With the Cowboys' season ending like that, it's easy to start shouting out how they could do better but I believe that those are about the only severe changes needed going into next season.

Holding to those adjustments can lead the Cowboys to another great season with perhaps a better outcome. We will have to see if they can handle these improvements and execute them well during games.

I can’t believe that an honest evaluation wouldn’t include the following, inconsistent offensive line between injury and lack of talent. Lack of production from the running back position.lack of consistency in the red zone, lack of consistency by its place kicker and this is just concerning the offensive end of the ball. Now saying the offense was number 1 you have to look at two entirely different seasons. The first 8 games were by and large easy winnable games. The second half of the season brought tougher teams and with that a drop in offensive production. On the defensive side of the ball, they lacked any type of pressure on the QB unless Parsons was putting pressure. Their pass coverage was abysmal. Even their so-called best DB Diggs, was toast many times last year. He’s a gambler at best and is far from a good cover corner.
I will agree that the coaching staff especially the HC needs improvement with time management. If that doesn’t improve then, McCarthy is gone and hello Payton. Finally, Punting was a plus and Dak continues to struggle with his short passing game due to bad footwork. His receivers baled him out numerous times last year. There is so many area’s that need improvements!!!

#1 offense not much to say?

How about a discussion of the Cowboys “vaunted” offense vanishing against top ranked D’s?

How about Moore’s very predicable play calling?

How about Moore’s failure to utilize his best RB in 2021, Tony Pollard in a Debo Samuel styel role?

KC 9 points

SF 17 points

Denver 16 points

Bolts 20

Zona 22

PS, MM does not call the plays, Moore does


You’re dead wrong. MM wasn’t calling the plays. Moore was and still is. He sucks!
