Dez Bryant Jerseys 2019

PostPostao/la linchao » Pon tra 08, 2019 11:31 am

Daniel Houston White DeMarco Murray Jersey , who goes by @CowboysStats on Twitter, is a great source of analytics for all things Cowboys. One of the reasons he’s such a good source is he tends to analyze whatever data he’s looking at and then draws conclusions from his analysis.This may sound like the logical thing to do, but I assure you, it is not. In today’s media environment of hot takes, black/white thinking, and clickrates, many folks form an opinion and then go looking for data to support that opinion.Which may be what prompted Houston to write this recent comment.When I read Houston’s take about “bad impressions” (or “preconceived opinions” as I might have phrased it) I was reminded of a book I once read by Jean-Francois Manzoni, a Professor for Leadership and Organizational Development in Lausanne, Switzerland. His book is titled “Set-up-to-Fail Syndrome: Overcoming the Undertow of Expectations” and describes a dynamic that essentially sets up perceived underperformers to fail. Back in 2011, I wrote about the Pygmalion Effect which explains how once an expectation is set, people will act in certain ways that are consistent with that expectation, causing the results of the expectation to become true - even if the initial expectation is based on a false premise.The Set-up-to-fail Syndrome is essentially the exact opposite of the Pygmalion effect.It describes a dynamic in which employees perceived to be mediocre or weak performers live down to the low expectations their managers have for them. Manzoni’s basic premise is that human beings apply labels to others all the time. A positive label in many ways is the equivalent to a get-out-of-jail free card: many mistakes will simply be overlooked or downplayed. A negative label requires an inordinate effort to overcome, if it can be overcome at all. The reason for this is that applying labels helps us make up our minds and form opinions faster without having to painstakingly analyze and evaluate all available facts. This is especially true when there is an information vacuum, such as the information vacuum in the relationship dynamic between fans or media members and players or coaches on a team. Because we don’t really know the players or coaches, we often default to labels that fit our preconceived opinions.“Dak Prescott can’t throw deep.” “Tyrone Crawford is overpaid.” “Kris Richard shouts a lot on the sidelines; ergo he must be a good leader and the next defensive coordinator.” “Garrett is a Princeton grad who often outsmarts himself, particularly in his playcalling. Also, he claps a lot.”“Jerry Jones is an oil-man so he cannot know anything about football”. I could go on and on, but you get the picture. These are labels that cling tighter than amermaid’s T-shirt and last longer than a white crayon. Let’s look at two labels a little more closely. “Dak Prescott doesn’t see open receivers downfield.” One of the newer narratives that have popped up this season is that Prescott regularly misses open receivers. And suddenly folks are seeing open receivers all over the place - but are these fine folks simply seeing what they want to see (or what the narrative dictates they have to see)? Perhaps you remember the following play from the game against the Jaguars:Here’s what Tony Romo had to say about that play:Tony Romo has had spectacular success as an announcer, but this is one play he simply got wrong. It is true that at the very end of the play, Elliott was indeed running towards the end zone without a defender in sight.But if “you’re going to look back at the tape” what you’ll see is that Dak Prescott was flushed out of the pocket by poor pass protection long before Elliott ran free as an unmarked receiver downfield. Here’s a screenshot from the exact play that shows Dak already up and running while Elliott has just barely cleared the linebackers. If you were looking for an open receiver, you would have found one on this play, just like Romo did. Doesn’t mean that the open receiver was an actual viable option on the play.None of this means that Prescott doesn’t miss open receivers. He does. Just like any other QB. It’s just that when you are expecting to see open receivers, you will see open receivers. “Defenses are loading the box because they don’t think Dak Prescott can beat them.”I recently saw a conversation about defenses not taking Dak Prescott seriously as a passer, which is why those defenses were regularly loading the box with “8, 9, sometimes 10 in the box to stop Zeke.”I don’t think I’ve ever seen a 10-man box outside of a goal line stand or perhaps a 4th-and-1 situation, but that’s beside the point. The issue here is the self-fulfilling nature of such labels. Once folks buy into such a label, they will begin to see what they want to see. So every time folks see a safety move down into the box, they’ll take it as further proof that defenses load the box against the Cowboys because they don’t think Prescott can beat them through the air.Never mind that that defenses load the box far less against Elliott than against many other running backs.’s Next Gen Stats conveniently keep a tally of how often running backs run against 8+ defenders in the box. Turns out, Ezekiel Elliott faced loaded boxes on just 24% of his runs, which ranks him 20th among the 47 qualifying running backs with at least 40 attempts so far this year. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t situations where defenses do load the box more heavily against Elliott (perhaps on 1st-and-10), but those situations probably have more to do with the threat Elliott poses to defenses than with defenses not taking Prescott seriously as a passer. Because by that circuitous logic, defenses would not be not taking guys like Ben Roethlisberger, Matthew Stafford, or Philip Rivers seriously either. These are just two examples of how subscribing to a given label can lead to all sorts of weird mental gymnastics folks go through to support a narrative. In another discussion I saw recently, folks were trying to differentiate between Prescott’s accurate and inaccurate completions in an effort to “prove” Prescott’s lack of accuracy. Analysis paralysis. Manzoni calls it labels, others call it prejudices, filters, or stereotypes. We use them all the time. They are a kind of mental shortcut which we often use to form judgments and make decisions. The downside is that these shortcuts usually involve focusing on just one aspect of a complex problem and ignoring others. My point here is simply to point out the pervasiveness of labeling, how quickly it happens Dez Bryant Jerseys 2019 , and how it can distort our view of what’s really going on, like when we try to see something through an out-of-focus lens: we’ll see something for sure, but are we sure we’re seeing the right thing?Subscribing to these labels inevitably leads you down a rabbit hole that ultimately results in the ignorant certainty that you’re right and people that don’t agree with you are stupid. It’s the cardinal sin of many self-styled “analysts”.Most of the labels I used in this post were negative labels associated with the Cowboys, which also exposes my own label: I generally view the Cowboys a little more favorably than many others do. But understanding your own use of labels and questioning their validity is the first step in making yourself a more knowledgeable fan. In sports, there is one sure-fire way of getting rid of negative labels: winning. Winning is a great deodorant. If the Cowboys string together a few wins and suddenly find themselves back in playoff contention, a lot of these negative labels will disappear and will be replaced by - you guessed it - positive labels.Doesn’t make those labels any better or more valid, but at least the mood around Cowboys Nation might improve a little. It’s time for fans to rejoice, as the decision has officially been made to fire Scott Linehan after yet another disappointing year from the offense in Dallas. While teams that have hired new head coaches in the last week have gotten a jump on filling out the rest of their staffs, there are still some offensive coordinator candidates out there who could be a fit for America’s Team. Earlier in the week I gave some potential candidates from the four remaining playoff teams, but there are other candidates available now. Here are seven of them.Doug NussmeierDoug Nussmeier just finished his first season with the Cowboys coaching the tight ends, and he deserves some credit for the way that position group developed towards the end of the year, most notably with Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz. It was Nussmeier’s first time ever coaching tight ends, but he has a connection to Scott Linehan - he played quarterback when Linehan was the offensive coordinator at the University of Idaho. That familiarity with Linehan might make Nussmeier a good hire for continuity’s sake, but Nussmeier also has playcalling experience of his own. He won a national championship in two years running the offense for Alabama, working closely with Jason Garrett’s close friend and mentor Nick Saban, and he also had stints with Michigan and Florida. If the Cowboys believe they have the right offensive system in place but just want a new playcaller, Nussmeier could be the frontrunner. However, if Dallas wants a clean break from Linehan, Nussmeier’s longtime relationship with the now former offensive coordinator could deter any promotion.Gary BrownKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsIt’s a puzzling trend in the NFL that so few offensive coordinators were once running backs coaches. Yet two of the hottest offensive coordinators this year, Freddie Kitchens and Eric Bieniemy, were running backs coaches before getting the coordinator job. Kitchens did so well he’s been named the new head coach of the Browns, and Bieniemy had several head coaching interviews as well. Gary Brown has been coaching the running backs in Dallas for six seasons now with great success. He is largely credited with helping DeMarco Murray make the jump to an elite running back before coaching Darren McFadden to his first 1,000 yard rushing season in five years back in the 2015 season. Brown has also been instrumental in developing Ezekiel Elliott, and his relationship with the players is extremely positive. Promoting Brown would be good for continuity and his emphasis on running the ball would go along with the team’s philosophy, but it also leaves the door open for some ingenuity from Brown, who spent two years under Pat Shurmur in Cleveland. Sanjay LalKirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsThere was a lot of excitement in the offseason when Sanjay Lal was hired as the wide receivers coach. His reputation as a master teacher of route running skills was supposed to help the Cowboys create a successful passing offense without Dez Bryant. It didn’t necessarily work out, and the Cowboys traded for Amari Cooper, who quickly cemented himself as the next great receiver for Dallas. While Cooper came to the Cowboys with a star pedigree already, he had been underperforming in Oakland for a little over a year. A lot of this had to do with the way Oakland was using him, so props need to be given to Lal for connecting with Cooper and getting him back to the kind of play he’s accustomed to. However, Lal deserves specific credit for the development of rookie Michael Gallup, who seemingly got better each and every week. In fact, Gallup had the best game of his young career in the playoff loss to the Rams, catching six passes for 119 yards. Lal may be too new to the team for Jason Garrett to hand him the keys to this offense, but the work this coach has already done speaks for itself.David CulleyMark Konezny-USA TODAY SportsYou may be asking who this is, but after looking at his past, David Culley is an under-the-radar guy who has incredible potential as a playcaller. He spent three seasons coaching wide receivers under Bill Cowher in Pittsburgh before joining Andy Reid’s first staff with the Eagles. From 1999 to 2010, Culley coached receivers for Reid’s high-flying offenses before he was given the additional title of senior offensive assistant. When Reid became the Chiefs head coach in 2013, Culley joined him as the assistant head coach and receivers coach. But Culley had dreams of becoming an offensive coordinator, and with Reid calling plays in Kansas City Troy Aikman Jersey 2019 , he had to go elsewhere to move up. For the 2017 season, Culley coached quarterbacks for the Buffalo Bills and led Tyrod Taylor to a career year en route to the Bills snapping the longest active playoff drought in sports. And while the Bills were a bit of a dumpster fire in 2018, Culley deserves credit for handling what was hands down the worst quarterback situation in the league - they had four different starters, including Nathan Peterman and rookie Josh Allen - and coming out of it with the 30th ranked offense. Culley has 18 years of experience with Reid’s offensive system, which has been nothing short of spectacularly innovative all year, and he is clearly adept at working closely with both receivers and quarterbacks. He may not be the sexy hire, but on paper he might just be the best hire.Marty MornhinwegMitch Stringer-USA TODAY SportsFor some continuity, here’s another former Andy Reid assistant in Marty Mornhinweg. From 2003 to 2005, Mornhinweg was the senior offensive assistant and assistant head coach in Philadelphia before being promoted to offensive coordinator, a role he held from 2006 to 2012 when Reid was fired. While Reid called the plays, Mornhinweg was hailed for his heavy involvement in the offense and how much he helped the unit to improve. Prior to coming to Philly, Mornhinweg spent four years as the offensive coordinator for the 49ers under Steve Mariucci before an unsuccessful two-year stint as the Lions head coach. Yet, in Mornhinweg’s entire career as both a head coach and coordinator, he’s had eight different top 10 scoring offenses, nine top 10 passing offenses, and six top 10 rushing offenses. And in 2018, Mornhinweg was running the offense for the Ravens and adjusted the team’s scheme midway through the year to incorporate rookie Lamar Jackson’s mobility. Baltimore ultimately decided to move on from him after the team’s loss in the Wild Card round this year, but Mornhinweg’s recent experience with a dual threat quarterback and his history in Reid’s offensive scheme could offer an exciting opportunity in Dallas. Todd HaleyPhoto by Joe Sargent/Getty ImagesYes, he was fired by the Browns alongside Hue Jackson, but that was reportedly due to the very obvious rift between Todd Haley and the head coach and had little to do with Haley’s actual ability as a coach. In that regard, Haley is a really great offensive coordinator. He started out as a disciple of Bill Parcells, which includes three seasons as the wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator in Dallas when the Big Tuna was the head coach. Haley has used the lessons he learned from Parcells everywhere he’s gone. He has no real offensive scheme, but instead focuses on highlighting each player’s strengths and aggressively attacking a defense’s weakness. He crafted a deadly vertical passing attack that nearly won a Super Bowl for the Cardinals, and then went to Pittsburgh and got some of the best years out of Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown while turning Le’Veon Bell into a star. Much like Parcells, though, Haley can be a bit rough around the edges and that sometimes rubs his players the wrong way; he was reportedly let go by Pittsburgh after the 2017 season because Big Ben had grown tired of his shtick. His personality may end up clashing too much with Garrett’s culture, but if they decide he’s a fit, then the sky is the limit for what Haley could do with this roster.Hue JacksonPhoto by Joe Robbins/Getty ImagesOkay, stop laughing. Yes, Hue Jackson was a laughably terrible head coach as he went 3-36-1 in two and a half years in Cleveland. But it can’t be forgotten that Jackson has been pretty great as an offensive coordinator. He ran the offense for the Raiders in 2010 and produced the sixth best scoring offense and second best rushing attack. He was also the Bengals offensive coordinator from 2014 to 2015, during which time the Bengals averaged 24.5 points per game and went 22-9-1 in the regular season. In both of Jackson’s years as the offensive coordinator, the Bengals were top 15 in total yards, passing, and rushing, including having the sixth best rush attack in 2014. His success as an offensive coordinator is why Jackson was the hottest head coaching candidate after the 2015 season. It obviously didn’t work out, but Jackson’s ability to run an offense is very valuable. However, his ugly divorce from the Browns may deter the Cowboys from hiring him.
