Bruce Carter Due for a Breakout Season

I have a confession to make: I am a huge closet Bruce Carter fan. No, I really am. When the Cowboys drafted Carter with the #40 pick in the second round back in 2011, I thought they really found a gem of a player. This guy had a tremendous college career at North Carolina and he had the one thing that I’m a sucker for: freakish raw athleticism. He has ideal size, speed, and agility...

Matt Eberflus, Cowboys Linebacker Coach

This season when the lights shine upon AT&T stadium, Matt Eberflus will be in the spotlight. Matt escaped a lot of last year’s criticism for the worst defense in Cowboys history. This season Matt will have to prove that he is that “linebacker genius” that Rob Ryan praised so heavily. When he followed Rob to the Big D, he was virtually an unknown factor to most Cowboy fans...

Projected Cowboys starting defensive lineup

Although they weren't wearing pads during OTAs and minicamp, we have a slightly better idea of what the Dallas Cowboys will be doing defensively in 2014. DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher are playing elsewhere and Sean Lee is likely out for the season. So, who will be in the Cowboys starting lineup when they open the season against San Francisco? Here's my prediction. Safety...

What should we expect from Bruce Carter in 2014?

We are now going into the fourth year of Bruce Carter’s career, and I have no idea what to think of him overall in Dallas. There’s times in his career he has looked fantastic and I’ve thought that him and Sean Lee could potentially become the best linebacker pairing in the NFL. But then I re-watch the games from 2013 and believe DeVonte Holloman should be starting over him...

Which Cowboys Could Lose Their Starting Jobs in 2014?

Now that free agency and the draft are complete, we are slowly getting a better grasp of what this team will look like in 2014. The biggest need heading into this offseason was the defense and depth across the board. The Cowboys have been very calculating in every decision; from releasing DeMarcus Ware; letting Jason Hatcher walk; to going heavy on defense in the draft. So now, its...

Cowboys Slap Bruce Carter Awake

The Dallas Cowboys had the lines of communication flowing at this year’s draft, and outside linebacker Bruce Carter was the recipient of a very clear message. Carter struggled last season with the Cowboys’ 4-3 defense, specifically he got lost in pass coverage too often.  Carter didn’t play as fast as the Cowboys would have liked and his hesitancy earned him a spot on the...

Could the Cowboys be in the market for a Guard or Linebacker?

It seems as though every offseason, the Cowboys bring in a ton of guys to work out who end up making their way on to the roster. However those guys making the team isn’t necessarily a good thing as it usually means an injury somewhere else. What if the Cowboys instead took a different approach and tried to improve by taking advantage of their nine picks. I have a feeling that is...

Dallas needs help at LB — bad year to find it in free agency

No matter the position group, the Cowboys’ defense underachieved in almost every way possible last season. As a whole, the defense finished last in the league. And the linebacker corps was part of the problem. The Cowboys believed before the season that Bruce Carter was a perfect fit for the weakside linebacker spot that’s so important in the 4-3 Tampa 2 scheme. However, Carter...

Jerry Jones still thinks Bruce Carter will be “outstanding”

Cowboys linebacker Bruce Carter had a disappointing season in 2013. But the man who drafted Carter, Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones, hasn’t lost any confidence in him. Jones says Carter, whom the Cowboys selected with the 40th overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft, has all the talent they thought he had when they drafted him. Which just means that if Carter can play...

As mentioned by me and several others on many an occasion, the Cowboys defense reeked in 2013. The team really needs help on the defensive line, which should be addressed in the first round.Outside of the lack of depth and talent up front, the Cowboys once burly corp. of linebackers looks a little thin.
