How to beat Russell Wilson: McCarthy says Cowboys want to score fast

By 105.3 The Fan

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy has an interesting strategy he wants to use in order to beat Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson on Sunday.

McCarthy said the plan for his offense isn't to slow the game down to keep Wilson off the field. Instead, he wants to speed it up.

“We want to score as fast as we can, and as many times as we can as far as the start of the game and throughout the game,” McCarthy said.

McCarthy did admit that he would slow down his offense's pace, but only if they have a lead.

“But when you get down in the fourth quarter, that’s part of the game management,” McCarthy said. “Hopefully we’re in that same situation.”

Wilson is off to a hot start this season, throwing for 600 yards and nine touchdowns.

Carthy said he’d like to win the time of possession battle if that means his offense is sustaining long drives while his defense is forcing turnovers and three-and-outs. But if the question is simply a matter of running a slow offense, McCarthy doesn’t see any benefit in that.
