Chicago Bears Head Coach Candidate: Kellen Moore – On Fire, stock way up

Last Week: Stock down slightly

Kellen Moore’s stock was down slightly after the Cowboys were only able to put up 21 points on the New York Giants. However, his stock skyrocketed after putting up 42 points in the first half versus the Washington Football Team. Dak Prescott was outstanding, throwing for 330 yards and four touchdowns before handing things over to Cooper Rush. Rush was also efficient as he completed two of three passes for 70 yards and a touchdown of his own.

The Cowboys ended the day with 56 points and are now 11-4 on the season. A team that was mostly overlooked this offseason has been phenomenal most of the year. Kellen Moore has been a big part of this as the offensive coordinator. Moore was a carryover from the Jason Garrett era. Moore was the offensive coordinator under Garrett in 2019. The offense was first in yards and six in points that year. Dallas saw a dip in 2020 but is back on top in yards and points this season.

Those who are worried about Kellen Moore’s inexperience should be. He has only three years under his belt as an offensive coordinator. That said, sometimes rolling the dice could pay off. Moore is not the new Matt Nagy in the sense he’s just a hot name who is thriving under a great head coach. No, Moore is very much involved with the Cowboys’ offense and is indeed the sole playcaller. Kellen Moore should still remain in the top five for potential replacements despite his inexperience.
