‘It makes us all better’: Cowboys practicing with extra officials in effort to reduce penalties in 2022 – Todd Brock, Cowboyswire.com
The staff is making it an emphasis to be higher on this space to be higher in 2022.
The offseason is a time to work on correcting conduct in an try to keep away from repeating previous errors. As the most penalized staff in the NFL final season, the Cowboys promised to make lowering their penalties a significant level of emphasis as they head into 2022.
So throughout the staff’s OTAs and minicamp, there was one further unit of personnel on the practice discipline. In addition to Kellen Moore’s offense, Dan Quinn’s protection, and John Fassel’s particular groups group, there was additionally a larger-than-usual contingent of officials, sporting stripes and throwing flags.
“It was offered,” defined head coach Mike McCarthy of the officials’ presence final week. “I think they were here about three weeks ago. We had our annual officiating meeting with the coaches, so that’s something that came up in the meetings. We’ve requested it.”
McCarthy and the Cowboys had a relatively prickly relationship with officiating crews final season. Coaches and gamers alike had been unusually verbal in questioning penalties in deciding key video games in opposition to Las Vegas, Arizona, and San Francisco.
While an enormous a part of fixing penalties is teaching gamers to observe correct strategies, gamers and coaches alike additionally want to totally perceive what is going to and gained’t get known as in a dwell recreation scenario.

Adam Rank’s 2022 Cowboys record prediction features questionable losses – Lauren Barash, The Landry Hat
As the staff is at the moment constructed, the place do you see the Cowboys ending document clever?
Every 12 months NFL author Adam Rank offers his predictions for each single staff’s document for the upcoming season. That’s a whole lot of work. Luckily for us Dallas Cowboys followers, he began off with America’s Team, so that you don’t have to watch the different hour of the section except you need to!
Despite the indisputable fact that many consider that Dallas has one in every of the best schedules in the total league, there have been issues that the Cowboys don’t have what it takes to repeat as NFC East champions. Most of that is due to main offseason strikes made by different groups in the division.
Rank, nevertheless, does consider the Cowboys will take NFC East once more. The drawback? He thinks that they are going to do it by way of a 9-8 document. Last 12 months, America’s Team completed with a 12-5 document, however they arguably didn’t face a top-tier staff after their recreation in opposition to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 11. This season, whereas the staff does have the luxurious of dealing with NFC East groups twice, they do even have to play worthy opponents in the Bengals, Bucs, Rams, Packers, and extra.
You’d assume that these video games would possible be a superb chunk of these eight losses on Rank’s prediction checklist. But, they aren’t. While it’s not unreasonable for him to assume the Cowboys will go 9-8, the video games he thinks the staff will lose really feel like a stretch. Here’s his precise prediction:
Do you see the Cowboys utilizing Trevon Diggs equally to Deion Sanders in the previous?
I do know we don’t need to overextend or danger harm to Trevon Diggs, however any probability we spot him a number of performs at broad receiver? A bit like Deion Sanders again in the day? — JEFF BOYLAN / PAINTED POST, NY
Nick:I don’t actually need to give away a undertaking that we’re engaged on proper now, however in speaking to a few of Trevon’s former coaches and shut mates, they appear to assume broad receiver is his greatest place. Not one thing he can play right here and there, however that he’s higher at receiver than nook. He solely moved positions at Alabama based mostly off of want. Now, to your query, I don’t precisely see that taking place as a result of it’s so demanding on the physique. But I’m not opposed to it. The factor about Deion that made it completely different is that Deion had track-star pace. So if he went deep, it was actually testing the different corners and safeties. He wasn’t as polished as a receiver with the routes, however may get by due to the pace. With Diggs, I don’t assume he’d have the opportunity to get by with pure pace with out engaged on the craft each day. I’d be OK with it right here and there, however not all the time.
Rob: I don’t actually see that taking place except the Cowboys obtained in a significant pinch at broad receiver. I’m positive Diggs would adore it. (Dak Prescott has mentioned Diggs has requested for some receiver reps in practice earlier than.) But as nice as he was final 12 months – it was the greatest season by a Cowboys cornerback since Deion — we have a tendency to overlook that Diggs remains to be studying how to play nook at the highest stage. He didn’t begin taking part in there full time till 5 years in the past. That’s thrilling for his long-term potential, however that’s additionally why it most likely is sensible to let him give attention to that.
