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.

Cowboys hope to go from 32nd to first in NFL defensive rankings

The Cowboys ranked dead last in the league in total defense last season, allowing more than 415 yards a game in a year when no other defense even allowed 400. This year, the loss of linebacker Sean Lee to a knee injury and the departure of top pass rushers DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher in free agency makes it seem unlikely that the Cowboys’ defense could get much better. But...

3 Reasons Why Cowboys Fans Should Want a Losing Season

So it's worth noting that I will never root for the Cowboys to lose during the season. That's why I wrote "why cowboys fans SHOULD" rather than "WILL" root for their team to lose. Also it is why I write this before the season begins, when I can look at the team logically and determine how likely it is for the team to win a super bowl with the current roster...

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.
