Let’s get the elephant out of the room. It was the Pro Bowl Youth Dalton Schultz Jersey , an exhibition game where everybody plays at half-speed and the referees stop the tackling at first contact. It’s not exactly the environment where you can judge anything. Regardless, Cowboys fans were tuned in to see what kind of game presumptive offensive coordinator Kellen Moore would call. Much to their disappointment, it kind of looked like Scott Linehan’s offense. The huge caveat here is that Moore has not had any real time to alter the scheme, and given that he was working with a whole set of players he doesn’t know, sticking to the basics was likely all we were going to get. Still Womens Antwaun Woods 2019 Jersey , scoring only seven points in an All-Star game where defense is suspect is not the best look. There were some wrinkles, such as when the Cowboys offensive coaches decided to give Ezekiel Elliott a direct snap. Zeke also got some action on a fake punt.One moment that had to give the Cowboys faithful heartburn was a fourth-and-two call right around the goal line. Given it was the Pro Bowl, and with all options available with no real pressure, the Cowboys coaching staff chose to.... run a dive play up the middle. It got stuffed. Any call but that one would have made Cowboys fans happy.Before we get too carried away, it was a meaningless game with little prep time and an assortment of players who didn’t really know each other and were playing at varying levels of aggressiveness. It’s not really the ideal way to judge anything. With that said Cheap Deonte Thompson Youth Jersey , it would have been exciting to see a little more creativity besides a handful of gadget/trick plays.

You can watch the Bills and Colts videos to get an example.The Cowboys didn’t go to quite the length that either Buffalo or Indianapolis did Dalton Schultz Jersey Stitched , but they did pull the curtain back just a bit. They’ve been working on a series revolving around the draft and the fourth installments allows us to see some of the discussion that went on right before Dallas took Connor McGovern.Stephen Jones hangs up the phone 37 seconds in, the Cowboys got an offer to move back when they were on the clock at number 90 overall. This isn’t particularly shocking as teams are always trying to wheel and deal throughout the entire draft.Listening to what he says though is somewhat interesting. He notes that the team would have to move three spots back if they accepted the deal that he just heard. The 93rd overall pick originally belonged to the New York Jets, but they later traded it to the Minnesota Vikings, and it was finally dealt to the Baltimore Ravens (Miles Boykin, Notre Dame).The Jets wanted Connor McGovernPer SNY the Jets quite fancied Connor McGovern. He could have been wearing green and white if the Cowboys war room didn’t agree to pull the trigger when they did.After the Cowboys took McGovern the Los Angeles Chargers took Trey Pipkins from Sioux Falls and the Jets (who then traded up to 92nd overall) took Chuma Edoga from USC. Those are two offensive tackles and potential spots that McGovern could have gone had Dallas indeed moved back three spots themselves.Ultimately the Cowboys did end up trading back Youth Mike White Jersey , it just didn’t happen until Saturday. It’s well-documented how highly they valued McGovern, it was one thing for him to last all the way until 90th overall in their eyes, good on them for not throwing that opportunity away.At the end of the video Marc Colombo seems quite thrilled with McGovern’s selection. Let’s hope that MC can get CM on the right track soon enough and that the New York Jets will be quite sorry about the way this all went down come Week 6.
