The Dallas Cowboys offense could look quite different next season, and we’re not talking about Ezekiel Elliott not being there.
With former Offensive Coordinator Kellen Moore gone, it seems like Dak Prescott will have way more responsibility in terms of playcalling.
At least, that’s what star WR CeeDee Lamb told 105.3 The Fan (via Bobby Belt), stating that all the offense will be in the quarterback’s hands now.
Lamb stated that the team would call whichever play Prescott felt comfortable with depending on the coverage, as opposed to what happened before with either HC Mike McCarthy or Kellen Moore calling the plays.
CeeDee Lamb on @1053thefan: "All the offense is in Dak's hands now. It's not necessarily being called from Mike or Kel since last year. It's all on Dak. However he's feeling versus the coverage, if he likes the matchup, we're gonna call that play." pic.twitter.com/KcIttG13jN

Notably, that might not be the best scenario for the Cowboys by any means.
If anything, analysts and fans have agreed that QB play and decision-making has held the team back for years now.
Prescott led the league in interceptions last season despite not even playing all the games, and confidence seems to be wearing off among the fanbase.
Dak has vowed to be better this season, and he obviously has the full support of his team and the organization, who have constantly lauded his leadership skills.
It’s been a long while since the Cowboys last won the Super Bowl, and as revamped as their receiving corps and defense are, some still have serious doubts about Prescott’s ability to get them over the hump.
Even so, we’ve seen some late bloomers silence their critics multiple times in the past, so we can never rule out the possibility of Prescott doing that in 2023.NEXT: Fans React To Anthony Edwards' Workout Photos
