Hello everyone at BTB. I'm a long-time poster at the SB Yankees site, Pinstripe Alley, but this is my first foray into the football blogs. I'm a big fan of the Bengals and Cowboys, but the Bengals are a bit further away from being relevant, so my thoughts are more towards how the Cowboys can get over the hump.
I haven't read a lot here, so excuse me if those with more football knowledge feel I'm wrong, but the main flaw I saw in this team this year was the secondary. Our offense is solid and can score, but our defense just bled points. We have the best pash-rusher in the game in Ware, and I like our linebackers, even though we don't have a game-changer like a Lewis or Matthews, but our safeties and corners seemed to get torched on a weekly basis. Kiper Jr. and McShay seem to agree, as they both have the Cowboys taking a CB with their first pick.
My question is, would it make sense to go after Bob Sanders, Namdi Asomugha, or possibly both? Asomugha would be a game-changer for our defense, as most people believe he's the second best CB behind Darelle Revis. Sanders, if he can stay healthy, would be a huge improvement for our safeties. Now, my level of expertise is more towards baseball, so I have no idea if either of these guys would fit under the cap, or how this would work. I think it's a no-brainer in terms of on-field product, but does this make sense financially?
