Solve the pass rush issue and check your ID !


The Cowboys issue of not generating a consistent pass rush could or should be solved by moving J Rat to DE opposite DWare, and let Lissemore and Brent hold down the nose, this move will free Rat from the constant double teams, and not many OT's or most likely guards are going to handle Rat one on one, plus Rat would be fresher at the end of games, and in turn the season, this will also assist A Spencer with QB pressure and setting the edge against the run, personally I don't know what the issue is with doing that, I thought the idea was to get your best pass rushers in one on one or the most advantageous situation, plus DE is his natural position anyway...

From where I sit, coaching and schemes seem to be the Cowboys biggest issue, I know they need a few more dynamic players on Defense, but logic and schemes JG and RR use baffle me more often than i care to see, every game is like being on the operating table, in spite of being 7 and 4, I know other fans suffer as I do, this notion by JG of not having a team identity is killing us, this one foot in and one foot out is not how to build a champion, don't get me wrong, I like a lot of what JG has done, but JG, Jerry and the Cowboys have to decide weather they are a running ball control team that can pass when needed or a spread them out sling it all over the yard passing team that mixes in a few runs to keep the D honest, personally I think they should be a ball control team with a major commitment to the run, play field position (Parcels style) and match it with a attacking Defense that can create turnovers, if the D gets burned, and fall to far behind, you always can turn the game over to T Romo, but JG seems to be stuck somewhere in the middle, which subjects this team to this roller coaster effect.

To be a good running team, you have to start the first day of camp, it's an attitude that has to be instilled in the players, the idea that I'm going to bloody your nose and bash your face in, man on man and if you knock me down, I'm going to get up and whup your azz the next time, if the Boyz had that you would not see this passing the ball when you have first and goal inside the five yard line, and as far as the defense is concerned, you either are an attacking Defense or a laid back bend but don't try to break defense, they have to make up their mind, all great teams have an identity.

I think most Cowboy fans would like the team to attack, even a the risk of being burned, hell if the guys can't cover they need to gamble more, kind of like saints play, but it beats that slow death of being nickled and dimed down the field, and I believe the Boyz will win more battles than they lose, but if they don't then you're in a shoot out, and we have one of the best sling it around QBs out there....that's how i would play it, at least until Rob has a chance to draft his guys, and patch up some those holes.
