Tale of the tape: Improvement on offense for the Cowboys all starts with the offensive line

Were going to do this a little bit different this week. Instead of going through every position group and breaking down the good and the bad Customized Dallas Cowboys Jerseys , were going to zone in on the offensive line. There has been mixed reviews going around the internet on whether or not this offensive line is playing as bad as the statistics say. Lets take a look at the tape and see if we can find some answers with the Paul Alexander-led group.Failing to read the read-optionOn the first drive of the game the Cowboys received a bit of help from the Seattle defense when they literally walked their 12th man on the field for a five-yard penalty. This took the Cowboys from a 3rd-and-6, to a 3rd-and-1. In recent years, 3rd-and-short was almost a gimmie for the Cowboys offense, that is not the case anymore. The Cowboys line up in shotgun with Zeke lined up to the right of Dak Prescott. The read-option had worked wonders for the Cowboys the week before so if you guessed that the read-option was coming you were exactly right. The Seahawks also guessed right and forced the Cowboys to punt after losing a yard on 3rd-and-1. The Seahawks blitz Bradley McDougald, and center Joe Looney decides to block him leaving Bobby Wagner free in the middle. Prescott needs to see that Wagner is moving to the front side of the play pre-snap, and with McDougald also pressed up to the line, that there is an overload on that side. If he pulls the ball he has tight end Geoff Swaim crossing to block on the back side, and he has Allen Hurns coming in for a seal block to give Prescott the edge. On that side of the ball he has three blockers and there are three defenders, he needs to read that and keep the ball. It doesnt help that on the front-side Connor Williams gets bullied into the backfield and Tyron Smith is unable to hold his block for any length of time. Pressure from all anglesThe Seahawks send a slot-blitz on this play and Zeke Elliott does a nice job of picking it up. Elliott runs the blitzing DB all the way up the field and completely out of the play. Awesome right? Wrong. Zack Martin gets walked all the way back into Dak Prescotts lap forcing him to step up in the pocket, avoiding the defenders arm (that should have been a penalty for hitting the QB in the helmet), and throw off balance while avoiding the DE, and running into the side of Tyron Smith. It also looks as if Bobby Wagner was spying Dak Prescott on this play taking his legs out of the equation on third down. Even when the receivers do run some nice routes to create some separation, the offensive line cant allow the pocket to break down so soon.Bad CommunicationThis looks to be a misdirection run called by Scott Linehan that could have been very successful if executed the right way. The Seahawks are showing an overloaded blitz to the left side of the offense and the run if supposed to be going right. One problem, no one blocks Frank Clark, and he gets into the backfield before Elliott even touches the football. Tyron Smith is letting him go expecting Connor Williams to pick him up, but Williams gets engaged in a combo block and only realizes theres a free man running by after its too late. The refs missed a hold here on Connor Williams, and Ezekiel Elliott trips over his own feet trying to cut right. A chance for a big play was ruined, due to the offensive line miscommunication. Poor technique is causing issues for multiple linemanFirst off, let me comment on how good of a get jump Frank Clark got on this play. But the truth is, if Tyron Smith gains more depth with his initial kick step he could have handled this speed rush with ease. Instead Womens Amari Cooper Jersey , Tyron takes almost a chop step here with his first step, and that completely took away all of his chances of making a play against the talented pass rusher. From the looks of it, Smith did not anticipate Clark rushing him to the outside with a speed rush, so he didnt get his weight moving to his outside foot, and this was an easy sack for Frank Clark. Smith needs to improve his play, this is sloppy for an All-Pro left tackle and one of the better ones in the game.Elliott, and TEs have struggled in pass protectionIf youre familiar with the Cowboys coaching staff, you know how much they love having their running backs, tight ends, and receivers block both in the run game, and in the passing game. Unfortunately for the team, they have been atrocious at doing so, so far this year. This will be the second time in three games that Ezekiel Elliott has decided to cut a blitzing linebacker in attempts to block them. On the first occasion, the play ended in a sack, on the second occasion, the play ended in an erratic pass to an open receiver. Zeke as to do a better job than this. If Elliott squares the blitzing linebacker up here, it gives Prescott a chance to complete a pass on 2nd-and-7, instead, this ball is thrown inaccurately due to a Prescott having a 250-lb linebacker being catapulted into his face.The Cowboys offensive issues are not with one player, one unit , or one coach. It is a combination of all three, but if the offensive line can pick up their play just a little bit, that should give the quarterback, running back, receivers, and coaches more chances to make plays. Until then, we will likely see a lot of the same due to the inability to run deep routes, run the ball with consistency, and give a quarterback who isnt playing with much poise, the ability to bounce back and pick up his play. The Cowboys brought in Paul Alexander to coach up this offensive line, and so far the results have been far from positive. With the team already at 1-2 on the young season, they do not have much time to figure it out.Give credit where credit is due, the Cowboys defense is balling and its not the competition Ed. Note: A few weeks ago, we announced that ex-Dallas Cowboys player Tony Casillas would be joining BTB and doing some podcasting and some writing. Hes already done a few podcasts, you can check out the latest one here. Now, hes jumping into writing. Heres his first article. Welcome, Tony! DaveYou hear the excuses - The Giants werent that good on offense! or Wait until the Cowboys play a better opponent. Dont listen to it, just go ahead and discard that into the garbage bin. The bottom line? Its hard to win in the NFL and after two games (I know, only two games) we can declare the Cowboys defense is good!On Gameplan Wednesday, as we used to call it in our meeting room Authentic Dak Prescott Jersey , we discussed our goals for the week: start fast, minimize big plays, stop the run and create opportunities.Without a doubt the Cowboys have started fast. After two games theyre ranked fourth in scoring defense giving up 14.5 points per game and fourth in yards per game at 274.5. The Carolina Panthers and New York Giants have formidable playmakers including Cam Newton, Christian McCaffrey, Odell Beckham, Jr., Eli Manning and Saquon Barkley, so instead of minimizing the Cowboys performance, lets give them credit. Early on this Rod Marinelli defense has showed what disruption and passion is all about. The love was spread around in the Giants game among Taco Charlton, Jaylon Smith, Damien Wilson, DeMarcus Lawrence, Tyrone Crawford, and Antwaun Woods. They all had big plays and the secondary held OBJ to five receptions. Illadmit when there were five minutes left in the game and the Giants had only 150 yards,and three points all game long, I didnt realize how dominating their performance had been. While the Cowboys offense continues to try and find its identity, Jason Garrett must be feeling pretty good about his defense.It doesnt matter what team you play in the NFL. Everyone is paid to play and play well. Give credit where credit is due. Dont take that away by stating that the opposing team did not play well. Dont listen to the noise about the level of competition, the Cowboys defense is getting it done - period!
