The Cowboys have gone through their own transition with Jim Caldwell as their coach, but their first-year coach is still as beloved as he was when he coached in Dallas in the early 2000s.
He is remembered for the way he used his knowledge of the game to create a team that was so cohesive and well coached.
Caldwell has worked with the likes of Terrell Owens, Brian Dawkins and the likes.
Now Caldwell will coach his alma mater in the Arlington area for the first time this fall, and he is going to use that knowledge to help the Cowboys win.
The Cowboys are on the road to the playoffs for the third straight season and Caldwell knows they are in good hands, having just finished a 4-0 start to the season.
“I have never been in a situation where I’ve been with a team and they haven’t had a winning season,” Caldwell said in a video he posted on Instagram last month.
“I think that’s a good way to put it.
That’s why you’ve got to have good coaching and great players.
I think they have that, and I think we have that.”
The Cowboys have been on the brink of a playoff berth for much of the season, but it has been a struggle as the team struggled to score points against the Kansas City Chiefs, who are coming off a 10-win season.
Caldwell and the coaching staff have been making adjustments as they’ve worked to find a solution.
The team is looking to find ways to score more points, especially as the Cowboys are a little stingy on turnovers and are averaging a league-low 2.5 yards per play.
The offense has struggled to find balance and is averaging just 3.4 yards per carry, with Caldwell trying to improve that.
The Cowboys are 4-5 and tied with the Kansas Vikings for the second-worst record in the NFC West, but they have won four of their last five games.
They are 3-5 in the division and 3-4 in the playoffs, but have yet to win at home in Dallas since the start of last season.
This year, the Cowboys have a chance to make a deep run at the playoffs with a win over the Bears in Chicago on Saturday.
The Bears are 6-6, and they have scored fewer points than any team in the NFL.
But the Bears have had a couple of bad breaks on offense, including a sack by safety Marcus Cooper and a fumble recovery by linebacker Jerrell Freeman.
The Bears have allowed 6.4 rushing yards per game and have a team-high 14 sacks.
This week, the Bears are on a bye and will need to win their remaining games to advance to the Super Bowl.
This is a good week for the Bears to try to get back to the postseason and get their season back on track.
The Bears will also have to find some answers at running back, where they rank 27th in the league with 2,948 yards. “
We know we’re going to play well, but we know we have a lot of work to do.”
The Bears will also have to find some answers at running back, where they rank 27th in the league with 2,948 yards.
Rookie Kareem Hunt has struggled with his consistency and efficiency, and coach Lovie Smith has not shown much faith in his ability to do so.
But Cook and Hunt will have to work together if they want to make an impact this season.
The Dallas Cowboys will host the Bears on Saturday night.
