Darnell Mooney Added Yet Another Holy S**t Quote About Matt Nagy

Every time it seems like the reports of how bad Matt Nagy’s offense was last year couldn’t get any worse, another quote comes along to top it. Justin Fields took multiple turns mentioning how difficult it was. Cole Kmet couldn’t avoid the subject. Anybody that played in it couldn’t help but admit in roundabout ways that Nagy never had a firm idea of ​​what he was doing. Yet somehow, Darnell Mooney may have topped them all.

Friday’s practice at Halas Hall was one of the toughest yet. Several players admitted it was exhausting. Coaches wanted to stress them mentally and physically. That job was accomplished. One of the things the offense worked on extensively was getting Fields out of the pocket on scrambles. When those situations happened, receivers and tight ends were required to scramble too, searching for open space to help the quarterback make a play. It might seem

Cowboys’ secondary looks to lead ‘switch of mentality on defense’

By David Helman
FOX Sports Dallas Cowboys Writer

OXNARD, Calif. — With all due respect to a lot of former Cowboys defensive backs, something feels different in 2022.

It used to feel like a rite of summer to come out to the West Coast and watch this team’s receivers put on a show. From Dez Bryant and Miles Austin to Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, it was common as recently as last year to watch a Dallas wideout take over training camp.
