Preparations are on for what will be the next season of the Dallas Cowboys. Of course, one of the most important points about the Lone Star team is the offense. Where it is already known is that Mike McCarthy will be calling the plays and everything indicates that he will be looking for a more aggressive style. Similarly, offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer, although he will have a background role, will coordinate with weekly game plans. Also, he has his own views about it.
“We want to play physical, quick and have everyone cover the whole field,” the offensive coordinator said. “I want us to be able to play quicker, it’s been pretty regular but it’s been fun. The system’s not broken as you know, they’ve won a lot of matches here. Mike’s been through it all.”
When Brian talks about it, it relates to all the changes the franchise has gone through in just a few short months. First, the coaching staff saw Kellen Moore leave for the Chargers. Compounding this whole situation, Zeke Elliott and tight end Dalton Schultz are both out of the team. Of course, it is to be expected that with all the new names coming in, as well as the rookies selected in the draft, there will be some uncertainty in the offensive assignments.
Either way, Dallas ranks fifth with the most wins since McCarthy took over as head coach in 2020. Along with 30 total wins, they have scored 1,392 points, the most of the team in the entire NFC.
Schottenheimer said, “They put up a lot of points and I have a lot of respect for Kellen Moore and Doug Nussmeyer, as well as Skip Peat and Joe Philbin.” “I’ve worked with a lot of people like that in the past. In terms of process, we’re preparing for organized activities. We’ve talked a lot about it.”
However, one of the points most criticized for the Cowboys’ current offense is that quarterback Dak Prescott could be different. For Schottenheimer, it’s better to tap the potential of the veteran. In fact, he said he likes that Dak is open to new ideas on crime.
“I love the guy and his work ethic,” Brian continued. “He’s a tireless coach. The way people follow him, the way he wants to be coached, the open minded ability to try different things from a fundamental approach, things that make you a true winner, A champion show, and it’s been amazing. I look forward to working with her and really all the guys. They’ve all been great.”

Actually, Brian’s most interesting opinion has to do with the fact that he’s never been in a situation like this before. However, he is upbeat and there is no arrogance on his part. And as if that wasn’t enough, he just wants to win at all costs. Without a doubt, these are the best statements a coach can make ahead of the start of the season.
Of course, there’s still a long way to go and we’ll get to see Brian work with the boys in everything to come. Namely, organized activities and Oxnard training camps. But for now, everything indicates that it’s going great. Not only in the game plan, but also in communication with veterans and novices coming this year.
