Cowboys offensive poll: How much would losing Kellen Moore hurt (or help) the Cowboys?

If Moore does get the Boise St. job, how much damage will it do to the Cowboys offense?

This past week reports surfaced that Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore has talked to his alma mater, Boise State, about their head coaching vacancy. Moore has been an assistant that many believe has the makings of a head coach in the NFL after helping lead the Cowboys to their best offensive season last year, and was on pace again this year until injuries to Dak Prescott and the offensive line slowed them down. But if Moore were to get the job at Boise State, where would it leave the Cowboys offense and what does it mean for quarterback Dak Prescott who’s been with Kellen Moore throughout his career?

There are changes that could happen if Moore were to leave and some could be positive. Maybe the red zone offense gets better. Maybe Prescott is able to use his legs more to beat teams and add another dimension to this offense. We won’t really know unless it happens, and we aren’t sure if Cowboys owner Jerry Jones won’t do everything in his power to keep Moore on his staff. But let’s say he can’t, what do the Cowboys do then?

Does head coach Mike McCarthy take over the offensive play-calling duties or do they bring in another coordinator to make the calls? If McCarthy takes over, then Prescott will know some of his offense while brining in another coordinator could mean Prescott would have to learn a somewhat different system.

Right now, it’s hard to tell what the Cowboys would do with one more game and a possible playoff berth with a win and a Washington Football Team loss this week. But the loss of Moore is hanging out there, and his departure could mean some big changes for the Cowboys offense. Just how detrimental, or beneficial that would be, depends on your point of view. So let’s hear your point of view.
