Iggles patch Left Tackle hole successfully vs. JPP...for one game

3

As I mentioned in my FanPost on this topic this week, the most maddening thing about the Cowboys is not just the sudden plethora of butter fingered wide receiver play. It's the fact that other teams in the NFC with o-line problems seem to be able to patch their holes while the Boys' front office can't seem to do it (though it seems Jeff Fisher's staff took advantage of the Cardinals MASH unit at running back and finally blew up the Arizona birds' suspect o-line for 9 sacks of Kevin Kolb Thursday night). Granted we now have 52 roster spots leaving at least one open for Kevin "Killer" Kowalski to return and man the center spot by Week 7 at the Carolina Panthers. But it doesn't look this bye weekend like this team has any intention of signing Montrae "Lumpy" Holland or Brian Waters before a potential Week beat down in Baltimore. In this link, NFC East blogger Dan Graziano looks at how the Philadelphia Eagles used a previous 'JAG' to keep Jason Pierre Paul off Michael Vick last weekend. If Dallas can play Costa at center and Kowalski at guard with Ryan Cook instead of Jeremy Parnell manning the right tackle slot, is there hope for getting more push on the right side of the line and reviving our comatose running game? More on this topic here -- and be sure to check out the comment about Jason Garrett's increasing preference for slightly lighter, quicker linemen: http://www.bloggingtheboys.com/2012/10/3/3447700/thoughts-on-patching-the-ol-and-beating-back-the-nfc-defensive
