Roster Breakdown (Part Six): Taking A Closer Look At The Defensive Tackles On The Dallas Cowboys

The big guys in the middle of the defense get some attention in our offseason review. Rod Marinelli brought a 4-3 system to the defense when he became the defensive coordinator in Dallas.

Should Cowboys Take A Chance On This Former 1st-Round Draft Pick?

The Dallas Cowboys top priority this off-season is to improve the defensive side of the ball, especially the talent/depth at the defensive end and cornerback positions. They should leave no stone unturned, which is why I think they should take a chance on former the 1st-round draft pick, Justin Gilbert. Justin Gilbert was the eighth overall draft pick by the Cleveland Browns...

Will Dallas Cowboys DC Rod Marinelli continue to use blitzing fronts?

Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli isn’t known for utilizing manufacturing pressure concepts or playing a numbers game by sending extra rushers to break down opposing offenses protection schemes. When Marinelli took over the responsibilities of coordinating the defense last season, we saw an upswing in attitude and a group that was committed to the basic fundamentals of whatâ...

Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee is under pressure in 2015

By Cami Griffin It’s hard to mention the Dallas Cowboys standout linebacker Sean Lee without the phrase “if he can stay healthy.” It’s clear that Lee is a leader, and he shows it both on and off the field.

Cowboys sign former top-10 pick

The Dallas Cowboys continue to bolster their defensive line even after the Draft. Today the Cowboys signed someone they’ve coveted for almost two years. Since the departure of the 3-4 system and the change over to the 4-3, Okoye has been linked as a possible addition to the defensive unit. It’s a positive sign too, seeing as the Cowboys are coming off one of the poorest showings...
