NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Redskins


New Cowboys OC Kellen Moore says he’s taken in a wide variety of influences in his new offense he’s installing with the Cowboys. 

“You take bits and pieces of everywhere,” Moore said via the Athletic’s Calvin Watkins. “From high school, my dad was a high school coach, (I) learned a lot from him foundationally. College at Boise with Coach (Chris) Petersen, and then different spots, whether it’s Detroit or whether it’s here. Different people you interact with, you can pull bits and pieces from everyone and piece it all together and hopefully comes out with something well.”

While the system is similar in a lot of ways to the Cowboys offense of past year given the influence of HC Jason Garrett, Moore is much more open to collaboration than previous OC Scott Linehan, who did not take suggestions from players.

“I think, at the end of the day, it’s a collaborative effort,” Moore said. “It starts with the coaching staff (and) what we do all offseason. But you like hearing how players feel about certain things, whether it’s Dak, whether it’s Zeke (Elliott) or (Jason Witten), or whoever it may be. Sometimes, it justifies things and you have to explain things better. Certainly, I think there’s nothing wrong with this being a collaborative effort.”
