FanPulse: Cowboys fans have lost a ton of confidence in the
team Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse — a survey of fans across the NFL , powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Cowboys fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.How confident are you in the direction of the team? Last week: 85 percent confidenceIt’s not surprising to see that people lost a ton of confidence in the Cowboys after Week 1. In fact the Cowboys fan base saw the largest dip in confidence from week to week among all 32 fan bases at SB Nation. We’re first in something!The team is going to have to do a lot this week in order to restore the faith among the fan base. Will the Cowboys win or lose in Week 2?Odds: Cowboys are 3-point favoritesBig Blue View FanPulse: Giants by 5Blogging The Boys FanPulse: Cowboys by 4Shockingly, both Cowboys and Giants fans think that their team is going to win on Sunday. This is a big game as the loser will drop to 0-2 on the season and earn their first division loss. Other than QB, what is most valuable to an NFL offense? It’s not like the Cowboys have a wide receiver or tight end on par with Ezekiel Elliott or Tyron Smith, but the merits of those positions should certainly be noted. Nevertheless, we’ve seen how the loss of Tyron impacts the team and it’s not pretty.Zeke might be in a more unique spot than most running backs in this category, but Tyron is still a hair more important than he is.Why the Cowboys offense needs to start shopping in the big-play department Coming off Sunday’s win against the Giants, you’re probably under the impression that the Cowboys moved the ball well Tyrone Crawford Jersey , at least for parts of the game, and had a good amount of big plays.There was the 64-yard TD pass to Tavon Austin of course, there were a total of seven plays on 1st-and-10 that resulted in a first down, and there were a handful of passes that saw Dak Prescott going deep although he didn’t manage to connect with his receivers. It certainly felt like there were a lot of big plays in the game.But there weren’t.The Cowboys consider any reception of 16 yards or more a “big play”. Any run of 12 or more yards falls into the same category. And on Sunday against the Giants, the Cowboys had just six such plays, one pass and five runs. That’s it.In the season-opener against the Panthers, the Cowboys had five such big plays, so even if it may have felt like the Cowboys were moving the ball better against the Giants, they weren’t. At least not as measured by the number of big plays. Here’s how the big plays so far this year compare against the big plays in the last two years: After two weeks Authentic Jaylon Smith Jersey , the offense looks to be on pace to mirror the disappointing 2017 offense in terms of big plays, and quite a bit off the pace set by the 2016 offense. What’s even more concerning is the absence of big plays in the passing game. On Sunday, the Cowboys had just one pass that generated 16+ yards, and that was the TD to Austin. Even dink-and-dunk Eli had more with four passes that gained 16+ yards. Eli freaking Manning! Over two games, the Cowboys have a grand total of four 16+ yard passes. That’s tied with the Bears for the second-lowest total in the league, just ahead of completely inept Cardinals offense. Somewhat of a saving grace for the offense: they have seven runs of 12+ yards, tied for third-most in the league. Combined, that gives the Cowboys 11 big plays, which is tied for 22nd in the league. The Cowboys are a run-heavy team Youth Ezekiel Elliott Jersey , but that doesn’t mean the offense can get by without some kind of vertical game.But the absence of big plays can’t simply be fixed by saying, “let’s have more big plays!”The Cowboys’ coaches have to call plays that allow for big plays in the passing game, the receivers have to run deeper routes, and even more importantly, they have to get open on those deeper routes. If they don’t, Dak Prescott will default to short, safe completions at the cost of the deep ball.And if the current starters can’t get the separation the offense needs, perhaps it’s time give more targets to players that can get that separation.
