Free Agency Should Address Depth and Shape Draft

The one thing that has really derailed the Cowboys over the past two years has been the lack of quality depth. This became more apparent than ever last season when the defensive line was decimated by injuries and the replacements were adequate to a degree. We still failed to get any real pressure on the quarterback. Jason Hatcher was able to bring the pressure from the defensive...

Priority number one: fix defensive line

Back before the start of the 2013 season I wrote an article entitled “Dallas Cowboys Defensive Line Under Pressure” in which I outlined my concerns about the starters and depth at DL for the Cowboys.  Many analysts were focusing on the safety position as the biggest gap in Dallas’ defense, and while I did not necessarily disagree with that assessment, I had more questions...

Kiffin Report: Sacks Down, Takeaways Still Up

With 4 games to go, the Dallas Cowboys defense has accounted for a total of 26 sacks through 12 games. The season doesn't end today, but if it did, they would fall short of all Cowboys annual sack totals going back a decade (32 was the previous low set in 2003). 26 is a very low number for a team total, and a real far cry from the amazing 59 that the Cowboys put together in 2008...

He went 3-13 (2006), 7-9 (2007), and 0-16 (2008) which was the worst all-time record for an NFL season. The defense was drawn up with a fearsome foursome on the defensive line. On paper, […]
