HONOLULU – Almost all Cowboys players left the bus in front of the hotel hotels wearing the traditional flowers of Hawaii smiling Thursday evening.
Trainer Jason Garrett said before his team took a flight five times from Los Angeles to the islands that they were going to a magical place.
"I feel everyone is excited about it," Garrett said. "Hawaii is a magical place. There's a great football tradition, there are lots of great players. Mark Tuinei, one of our big players since, is from Hawaii and so much more."
And while the Cowboys are smiling and enjoying themselves, the football business will get them out when they take the Rams on Saturday afternoon in Honolulu in the second game's predecessor. Cowboys did not commit the offense, no matter if he is playing in Houston, Arlington or San Francisco, in the season.
The Cowboys lost their last five pre-season matches and their reach in the last 14 quarters has reached only 21 points. The last time the Cowboys scored a destination, Terrance Williams captured a 6 yard pass from Dak Prescott on August 18, 2018, in the second quarter of loss for the Cincinnati Bengals.
You could say that this is the forerunner and no one should be too big, and Garrett and most coaches would agree on the team. This is the time when you evaluate the talent despite having a vanilla game plan.
In the pre-season player last week against the 49ers, Cowboys scored nine points, all on Brett Maher's field goals, while 0-4 in the red zone and 4-15 went third. Mike White passed the fourth quarter string going on to 20 for 20 yards. A better success with Cooper Rush and Prescott, but there was nothing else there.
“Yes, I mean that we feel exactly when you are in a training camp it is more important to practice because you are in a training camp instead of planning a week's game for teams to wear,” Garrett said. "Especially the first few pre-season matches. There will be some cases that we can not deal with them as well as we are not zoned enough in [to] what they are doing and what we want to do against that. "
Some offensive beginners will return home in Dallas nursing injuries, including a wide receiver of Amari Cooper (heel), guard Zack Martin (back) and left Tyron Smith's fight (back) . But Prescott is here, as more than anyone else is going back Tony Pollard, along with an old receiver Randall Cobb and the second year receiver Michael Gallup.
Garrett will not say who is playing, but with Prescott coming here wearing a Cowboys-styled Hawaiian shirt, it is assumed that he will play along with some other old soldiers. Rams were not very popular with beginners, and will not play established members of their first team.
"It's a business trip," says Alfred Morris. "We're not going to see scenes or not to do so. Our schedule is going to be tight. We're going to Hawaii, but I won't be able to experience Hawaii and take all her beauty into."
It is necessary to change the proportion in the Cowboys offense – again, yes, it is the forerunner. There may be some concerns about what the new assault coordinator Kellen Moore is doing with this group.
Moore has received praise for his work with the offense, where he is using bunch formations, motions, which spend further down the field and go further to the back. These are things you will see more in the regular season, but it must go in some way regardless of the plays it uses now.
"It's a bit more generic, a little more vanilla, but it gives us an opportunity to evaluate people who are sometimes in a very favorable situation and sometimes it's not as favorable," Garrett said. "But we don't want to sacrifice the importance of training camp practice. You never get this time back."
So in the coming days, the Cowboys will relax in their seaside hotel and watch the waves, the surfers and the sun hats. Maybe they'll walk around the busy streets and find some gifts.
But the improvement of Cowboys' main goal is now entering the second pre-season game, and they will have to do this in a magical place.
"I have never been in Hawaii in the past," said back-lieutenant Jaylon Smith. "So I'm excited to go over there with these guys, making a small team then connecting default game No. 2."
