Forgive me if this notion has already been brought up or discussed. If it has, I missed it and I'd like to know your opinion.
We've all moaned and groaned about the apparent lack of talent on the defense. But in a league where the new rules enable teams with great offenses and mediocre-to-wretched defenses to win divisions and compile impressive W-L records (New England, Green Bay, New Orleans, etc), why not focus the off-season on building a tremendous offensive line? I'm talking first and second rounders on guards and centers, maybe even a tackle. Sure, pick up a defensive back and d-lineman or two on the second day of the draft and maybe a key defensive free agent signing, but why not try to get another T-Smith calibre O-lineman or two? We all know that the best way to enable an offense to maximize its potential is with a solid line.
Let's face it, the offense despite having above average skill position players over the last few seasons has sputtered due to inadequate blocking and protection – especially late in the season. Anyway, I would not be displeased if the Cowboys drafted a guard in the first round and then another O-lineman in the second or third round, and maybe a free agent acquisition as well. Not to mention some of the 2011 Yuglies getting a full off-season of strength training and conditioning under Coach Wojick (sic). I believe such an approach might be the most realistic recipe for success in the years to come.
