The biggest problem with the Defense is the secondary, but it is not the players that we have, it is the scheme that we are running. Most of the time we can be playing cover 2 on one side and man on the strong side . It is a very confusing way to play defense,especially for the safeties, which seem to be the main ones making errors in coverages. I know that we have to disguise coverages but, I think when the players that typically make big plays (Henry, Pacman,Hamlin, Ware, Ellis)aren't doing anything there is something wrong.
Right now our defense is doing the bend...don't break approach. We will give up short routes all day long (corners sitting on the 10 yard routes and letting the safeties take over the top)as long as they don't give up the long ball they really aren't too mad about it. This does not allow our line and linebackers to form really any kind of rush because they are releasing the ball in 3 steps or less.
I would rather take chances and maybe give up a long ball or so a game if that meant we are getting more turnovers and it also prevents our defense from being on the field forever, which also gives our offense more Time Of Possession to work with. One of the best thing about the Cowboys is the high scoring ability which is also one of our best assets to the Defense. One of the best defenses in the league is the Tennessee Titans, look at the stats and personnel. They have NO ONE talent wise that is any better than the Cowboys do. Whoever is calling the plays is doing a much better job than Stewart/Wade.
Cowboys to the Super Bowl!!!!!
