Will the Cornerback Rotation End for the Cowboys?

Mike Jenkins may have proved enough on Monday night to make Wade Phillips reconsider his plan to alternate starters at the right cornerback position.

"I thought Jenkins had a good game. That's to be determined tomorrow really," coach Wade Phillips said of evaluating the rotation system. "We're going to discuss it."

Make the jump for more.

If Jenkins is to start again, this would be a move towards defensive consistency rather than a slight to Orlando Scandrick. Scandrick had a quiet game against the Panthers, but that may be a good thing. He really seems more comfortable in handling the slot duties.

A factor to be considered, Phillips said, is that Scandrick plays on the corner in regular packages and moves to the slot in the sub-packages used on passing downs. Jenkins plays corner full time. Phillips said it's been more difficult than expected for Scandrick to make the switch in mid-stream.

A pass rush could certainly help everyone in the secondary. While DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer are still hungry for their first sack, we got to see one of the backup OLBs take full advantage of his playing time.

Wade Phillips said Victor Butler played in five snaps against Carolina. Let's see five snaps, two sacks and a forced fumble.

The other pass rusher Phillips was hoping to see play had some bad luck.

Curtis Johnson was active for the first time but he aggravated his hamstring and did not see a defensive snap.
