After spending a handful of days in Carolina interviewing for the Panthers job, Dallas Cowboys Offensive Coordination Kellen Moore was not hired as the new head coach of their football team.

The Panthers hired former Colts Head Coach Frank Reich instead. For now, Moore is still slated as the play caller for the Cowboys, but that could change.

During his press conference yesterday, Head Coach Mike McCarthy said that Moore, like all other coaches, is “being evaluated.” We all understand that most want Moore gone and no longer calling plays for this offense, but why?

I was a fan of Moore early, but his game plan each week has become like the same song you hear on the radio for a month straight, OLD!

In four seasons calling plays for the Cowboys, the offense has had elite-type numbers (outside of Dak Prescott missing 2020). In 2021, they finished as the No. 1 scoring offense, averaging 31.2 points per game, and the No. 1 total offense, averaging over 400 yards a game.

This past season they finished with the No. 4 scoring offense.


Once again, in the Divisional round of the playoffs, the offense could only muster 12 points. Granted, it was against the best defense in football, and the problem is, we see the same type of plays run throughout the game.

We see the same curl route to Dalton Schultz and the same first and second down runs for two yards. Yes, Prescott can change things at the line of scrimmage, and honestly, I hear him do it from time to time.

It is hard to find a solid offensive coordinator in this league, and although Moore isn’t ‘hurting’ them, he just isn’t elevating them enough each week. This team becomes inconsistent every other week, which is a huge problem.

Additionally, he has been questionable with his play calling when up big in games. In week ten against the Packers, the Cowboys were up 14 points as they entered the fourth quarter. Tony Pollard averaged over 5 yards a carry, while Malik Davis, the THIRD string, was pumping out over 7 yards. He ran the ball six times and threw it 18 times in the final frame.

Look, I am still determining who I would rather have than him, and until told otherwise, he’s the guy. So who would be better to replace him? Kliff Kingsbury, I’ll pass. The Cardinals finished 4-13 this year under him, and the offense could have been better.

Let’s see how the rest of this offseason shakes out. It’s okay if Moore is the man who is calling the plays again next season. If nothing changes with him, then let’s get another target on the outside, making things easier for CeeDee Lamb, who showed he could be a No. 1 target.

It sounds like the team wants to make changes, but are being smart. With Dan Quinn returning, Moore also might return for one last chance to get this current team to a Super Bowl.

More changes are on the way, we just have to wait and see what they are.
