Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey
Running back Ezekiel Elliott doesn't think a demand for more carries is the answer for what ails a Dallas offense that's threatening to derail the Cowboys' season early.And if offensive coordinator Scott Linehan is ready to start "slinging it around" to ignite a paltry passing game Authentic Cole Beasley Jersey , quarterback Dak Prescott is all for it.The underlying message of Linehan's thinking is that the Cowboys (1-2) need to loosen up as they try again to bounce back from a rough road showing when Detroit (1-2) visits Sunday."I think our guys just need to just basically take the weight of the world off their shoulders and go out and play," Linehan said Thursday. "Just start slinging it around, and they're ready to do that. We made a positive step a couple of weeks ago."Slingin' Dak Prescott? Not even close in three games this year, and in most of the last half of the 2017 season. He says he's ignoring the numbers, which is probably a good thing since his offense is ranked 31st in the NFL in passing and the Cowboys have their fewest points through three games (41) since 1990."When you play the game and you come out of it and you know the stats aren't that great, I'm not necessarily going and looking at them and saying, 'Oh, we've got to do this to win. We've got to do that,'" Prescott said. "It's execution. We execute all the way across the board. Everybody does their job. The stats and everything will build up. The wins and everything are going to happen."They did two years ago when Prescott and Elliott were the dazzling rookie duo leading the Cowboys to an NFC-best 13 wins. The last victory was against the Lions, when Dallas broke a halftime tie with three touchdowns in a 42-21 win.Elliott was quick to shoot down a correlation, though."That's so far gone in the past," Elliott said. "I wouldn't say as a team we will look back and see, 'OK, this is what we did in '16 and this is how we're going to get better two years later.' That really doesn't make sense. We have a whole different group of guys."So here's the present.While Elliott is tied for the league lead with 274 yards rushing, that's not helping a receiving group suffering under the expectations of trying to replace 15-year tight end Jason Witten, the franchise leader in catches Authentic Terrance Williams Jersey , and 2014 All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant, who has the most receiving TDs in club history.Believe it or not, the Cowboys are averaging more yards per carry (6.0) than per catch (5.7) 鈥?all the more reason for Elliott to believe he should be getting more than the surprisingly low average of 16 carries per game. Dallas probably figured it would be closer to 25.Elliott won't be knocking on Linehan's door because he looks at the two losses and sees deficits of at least two scores in the fourth quarter of both."I would love to see it more, but I just think the nature of the games we played ... we've been down," Elliott said. "We've been having to try to come back. It's hard to come back and try to run the ball. When you run out of time in the game, you can't just be sitting there trying to pound it."The Cowboys sure haven't been able to pass it, though. Prescott has the fewest downfield throws of at least 15 yards among QBs with three starts. His most reliable returning receiver, Cole Beasley, is the only one with at least 10 catches and 100 yards.Allen Hurns, the first free agent signed after Dez Bryant was released in a cost-cutting move, has four catches for 51 yards. Rookie Michael Gallup, the first receiver drafted post-Bryant (third round), has almost as many drops (two) as catches (three) after a promising preseason.The overarching conclusion for all participants: They need more time together. But time will be running out fast on this season with another loss."I wouldn't say it's trust," Prescott said. "It's knowing their chemistry, seeing a guy and saying, 'Yeah Womens Allen Hurns Jersey , he's even or he's covered, but I'm going to throw him open or he's going to run and get open.' It's just that chemistry we've just got to keep growing."The Cowboys will need that before they can really start slingin' it.Jason Garrett: No dramatic personnel changes to shake up the offense After the loss to the Seahawks, the NFL schedule rolls on. The Cowboys have a Sunday date with the Lions, and since it’s Wednesday, Jason Garrett met with the media before the first practice of the week. (All answers from Garrett are paraphrased and not actual quotes).With the struggling offense, will there be any personnel changes?No dramatic changes. We just got to get back and get locked in, we need to move the ball, be efficient and productive. There were some good things in that game to build on, but we have to be more productive. We’ll look at the coaching staff, the execution of the players, what we’re asking them to do.When does it become the point you look at personnel changes?We are always evaluating that. Evaluating how we’re using the personnel, are we maximizing their strengths, minimize the weaknesses, it’s an on-going process.How do you get more downfield throws to get more explosive plays?You just do it. So much is predicated on what you want to do and what the defense gives you. We present opportunities vertically, we need to take advantage of them when they are available, if not then you take the intermediate or underneath option to move chains. Trust is critical for all parts of team , all 11 men must do the job. Hopefully over time you build that trust, demonstrate accountability, all over the football team.Have you seen many plays where Dak has a clean pocket and and open guy but just missed it?Sure, there have been examples where he didn’t see a guy, or something happens in protection. You evaluate it play by play, I haven’t seen an overarching problem, it’s something goes wrong here on this play, something else on that play. Hopefully we canexecute better.With Sean Lee out for a bit, talk about Jaylon Smith.He’s done a nice job, he’s improved dramatically. First hurdle was getting healthy, he played last year but wasn’t 100%. He’s gotten better physically, he learns from experience, he goes about it right way. He was healthy and had a good offseason. He’s played a lot of snaps and is certainly more capable now. Smart guy that goes about it the right way.Some teams throw 40-50 times a game. Is it possible to run the ball that much in a game?Balance is a goal, but running the ball helps linemen, QB’s get more favorable looks, and it helps the defense. Running the ball is a big part of what we do Womens Antwaun Woods Jersey , but you have to balance other way, too. We have to make plays in the passing game.What’s the latest update on Travis Frederick?I think he is doing better, but the best person to ask would be him. He is around the team every day, he hasn’t practiced or done a walk-through. He looks better. He would need to pass some strength threshold in the weight room first (before coming back), best to ask him. He is moving around better, he’s contributing.Will Maliek Collins practice today?If he does it would be limited, I would expect him to work on the side.Deonte Thompson has added spark on kick returns.He’s done a nice job on kick returns. He’s a vet guy, he has a good feel for it, has speed and vision. Isn’t afraid to run it up in there.Would you like to get Tavon Austin more involved offensively?Sure, he’s been a big part of what we’ve done. We anticipated being able to move him around and put in different spots,Will Jeff Heath practice today?Yes.Can you feel confident with Sean Lee missing, given the previous stats about the defense when he is out?Jaylon is much further along in his experience. We feel good about Vander Esch’s development. We like the LB corps. Damien Wilson is a better player than before, and Joe Thomas. But mainly we feel good about Jaylon and Leighton. Sean is a big-time player, he’ll be engaged. He’s a great football player good physically, instincts are rare, and he is a great leader Womens Jaylon Smith Jersey , emotional leader. He make calls and communicates. He’s a vet, and is great about teaching Jaylon and Leighton, he helps themWill Brice Butler play this week?Haven’t made any determination, he had a good week, hopefully he has another this week.Surgery for Datone Jones’ hamstring?I understand he will need surgery but that’s not for sure, whatever the case he won’t be back anytime soon that’s why we put him on IR.With LVE missing time in camp, are you surprised at his play this early?A big part of his eval was his smarts, instincts, we saw that at the outset, even before he missed time. He remained engaged when he was out, he’s wants to know the calls, run the plays mentally, when out he stayed engaged. Custom Chicago Bears Jerseys
