Found November 09, 2011 on Dallas Cowboys And The NFL:
What’s up with the Cowboys run defense? In a word, it’s been pitiful the last two games, yielding a whopping 401 yards. That’s a major surprise, considering Dallas gave up just 418 total over the first six games for a league-best per-game average of 69.6 yards. Given all that, the Bills’ Fred Jackson must be licking his chops. Two weeks ago, Philadelphia’s LeSean McCoy ran for a career-best 185 yards and two touchdowns against the Cowboys. Last weekend, Seattle’s Marshawn Lynch had 135 yards and a TD. Jackson leads the AFC in rushing with 803 yards. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was asked if he’s worried about facing Jackson with the run defense so porous.  “It’s not a worry, it’s a challenge,” Garrett said. “But yeah, we defended the run as well as any team in the league over the course of the first six weeks of the regular season and we just have to keep working on our individual technique and our discipline within our scheme.

"Winning 1st Down". The basic battle ground of a football game starts for all involved on winning 1st Down. Anyone who consumes NFL press conferences will often hear a coach talk about this topic and often not quite understand the ramifications of what it all means. After all, as a fan, 1st Down hardly ever seems vital in its outcome. This is where coaches and fans see...

Cowboys better in first year of Garrett

IRVING, Texas (AP) -- In his first season's worth of games running the Dallas Cowboys, Jason Garrett has succeeded in changing the culture around the club.

Cowboys playing with unforgiving injury curse

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett might want to check his ankles for puncture wounds. It's starting to look like he and the Cowboys are snakebit when it comes to injuries.
