If you think the Cowboys defensive line is so good consider this. Kevin Brooks in 1988 had 5.5 sacks playing 4-3 defensive tackle. Kevin Brooks was widely considered to be a disappointment and eventually Jimmy Johnson traded him to Denver in 1989 before the season for a 5th round choice. Fact: (disappointing) Kevin Brooks would probably start at defensive end for the Cowboys right now. Fact : the 1988 Cowboys who went 3-13 had a better defensive line than the 2011 Cowboys. This ought to put an end to the " I am okay with the Cowboys defensive line rationalization nonsense " once and for all.
