Is Bruce Carters starting job in jeopardy

Caption (credit: www.dallascowboys.com) Bruce Carter is now in a serious battle to keep his position with the starting linebackers. At the beginning of training camp Carter looked to be the only linebacker who was not in danger of losing his starting spot. When the Dallas Cowboys drafted Carter, it was hoped that they got a sure fire starter who would take his place next to Sean...

Anthony Hitchens Turning Heads and Making Plays

If you were like me, then you were glued to your TV last night with a close eye on the defense. Leading up to the game we all knew we were missing several starters on the defensive side of the ball, but we still wanted to see who from all these backups would standout. Unfortunately, the defensive backups were gashed with regularity and it was painful to watch as it stirred flashbacks...

Cowboys preparing the Tsunami Effect

  (credit: dallascowboys.com) There has been a lot of chatter about the Marinelli Wave that is planned for the Cowboys’ defensive line, but this is merely the calm before the storm. Look for more of a Tsunami effect from the energized, new youth movement on both sides of the ball. While sadly having to move on from some older, respected players, the team has brought in a solid...

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...

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...
