McCarthy downplays major changes to Dallas Cowboys offense

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said he’ll try to avoid any major changes when he takes over play calling next season.

McCarthy takes over the role that offensive coordinator Kellen Moore had the past two seasons.

During that time, Dallas had one of the most successful regular season offenses. But that did not translate into playoff success.

McCarthy has suggested he’ll emphasize running the ball more.


Jerry Jones hints Ezekiel Elliott could return to the Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said letting Ezekiel Elliott go was not easy. The team is reportedly open to the idea of bringing him back.

But at this week’s owners’ meeting, he said people should not expect to see a totally different offense in 2023.

"I don't see a huge change in the run component of it schematically. But you know it's just like anything. If you put three play callers in the same room and you gave them the same play, they'd probably all call it a little differently. So, I think that's to be expected. I think the second point is you've got to evolve it every year anyways. You know, if we didn't make the change at play caller we'd be evolving anyways," he said.
