The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb took a subtle shot at the organization’s offensive coordinator, Kellen Moore during an interview on Wednesday.
The “kellen moore” is the Dallas Cowboys Offensive Coordinator. In an interview with 105.3 The Fan, CeeDee Lamb took a subtle shot at him when he said that kellen moore was not his favorite player to work with.
Despite completing the year with 12 victories and one of the top offenses in the league, the Dallas Cowboys were dissatisfied and humiliated at the end of the 2021 NFL season. Despite playing at home, they were defeated by the San Francisco 49ers in the Wild Card Round.
Dallas’ season was excruciatingly disappointing, particularly given the cap disaster the organization is about to face in the summer.
So far, head coach Mike McCarthy has taken the most of the criticism. CeeDee Lamb, on the other hand, seemed to throw some shade at offensive coordinator Kellen Moore while discussing the Cowboys’ whole season.
CeeDee Lamb took a veiled dig at Cowboys offensive coordinator Kellen Moore.
CeeDee Lamb on @ProFootballTalk on what happened to the Cowboys’ offense: “I just feel like we got away from what we originally started the first 7-8 games. When we popped out 6-1, we were very aggressive. … I felt like in the middle of the season we slightly got away from it.”

Speaking with Pro Football Talk during the leadup to Super Bowl Weekend, Lamb discussed some of the offensive struggles Dallas faced halfway through the season. The Cowboys started the year off red hot on offense before running into some hurdles. These struggles could have played a role in Dallas choking away their home playoff game.
“I just feel like the first 7-8 games, we went away from what we initially began,” Cooper said. “We were really aggressive when we burst out 6-1… I felt like we drifted away from it a little bit in the middle of the season.”
Although it is done very subtly, it is safe to believe that these remarks are addressed at offensive coordinator Kellen Moore. He’s the person in Dallas that calls offensive plays, and he’s been dubbed an offensive genius owing to his youthful age and swift rise to play-calling responsibilities.
Despite his previously stellar background, it looks that things did not go well in Dallas this past season. Amari Cooper, a veteran wide receiver with the Cowboys, was another player who voiced dissatisfaction with the play-calling throughout the season (lack of targets).

From the outside, it’s difficult to say what prompted Moore to change his play-calling midway through the season. It may have been due to injuries to Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, or it could have just been Moore tinkering with the playbook in a way he shouldn’t have.
In any case, Lamb’s claim that the team drifted away from what was working is alarming. Moore’s only role is to ensure that the offense is fueled by gas.
The manner in which the Cowboys lost their playoff game simply adds to the flames. Analysts are still scratching their brains over the last-second QB draw play with no timeouts left. Moore is the only person who could have called that play into Prescott.
What does the future hold for Kellen Moore and the Cowboys?
Moore was a popular contender for head coach this summer. However, he was unable to get employment. He’ll be back in Dallas for his fourth season as offensive coordinator as a result of this.
Despite Lamb’s remarks, this is a positive development. In the NFL, consistency on a coaching staff is crucial. Moore’s standing with Dallas, on the other hand, may not be as solid as it was a year ago.
Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, is anxious for a Super Bowl win, and if the offense can’t go back to its former glory, he’ll start grilling Moore with difficult questions.
