BREAKING NEWS: Kellen Moore Loses QB Position In Cowboys, They Are Signing The Most Wanted QB in NFL
What the coaching staff for the Dallas Cowboys sees in backup Kellen Moore is anyone’s guess. When he was called upon in 2015, he was less-than-impressive. He completed just 58.7 percent of his passes for 779 yards with four touchdowns and six picks. He missed all of 2016 with a broken leg, and has now come in as the unquestioned No. 2 player under center for Big D.
Up until now, there’s nothing in his play in the preseason that warrants that confidence. Moore came into Saturday’s amusement finishing under 60 percent of his passes in the initial two preseason games with a quarterback rating of only 79.4.
He at that point really looked more regrettable against the Indianapolis Colts. Moore fumbled on his initially drop back, and saw the Colts keep running in for a touchdown off his slip-up.
It didn’t improve from that point as he finished only 10-of-21 passes for 131 yards and no touchdowns. Surprisingly more dreadful than his details is the absence of quality in his passes and the problems he has with moving in the pocket to discover tossing paths where his passes won’t get batted down.
His failure to perform at a satisfactory level influence fans to wonder why the Cowboys don’t make a move. One clear move they could make is to sign Colin Kaepernick, previously the beginning quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers or Robert Griffin III once of the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns.
The two players have their warts also, yet nothing can be as terrible as Moore’s intermediary passing. RG3 might be a greater concern on account of his damage issues, however Kaepernick doesn’t have that issue. Obviously, there’s a shame around Kaepernick and a few fans might be disturbed about him being grabbed.
Nonetheless, it’s difficult to state a person that has 12,271 yards going with 72 touchdowns and 30 picks in his career is a more regrettable choice than Moore. Any contention against such a move gets weaker and weaker each time Moore drops back to toss.
