One thought on “Inside the Playbook: The Dallas Cowboys Running Game

  1. Dallas switched to more man blocking when McFadden became the starter and they had released Joseph Randle. The general consensus is that they wanted Ezekiel Elliot so they could feature the zone scheme more (and also why they signed Alfred Morris).

    Great insight.
