Bye Week Adjustments the Dallas Cowboys Should Consider Making

At 2-7 the may be busier than usual during their , despite not having much left to play for the remainder of the . This week provides the perfect opportunity to reevaluate everything from top to bottom to find out the direction this to take to better themselves for the future.

With that in mind, I thought I'd share with all of you a few adjustments I think the Dallas Cowboys should seriously consider making during the bye week. None of these adjustments I'm suggesting should have much of an impact on the remainder of the season, but the ramifications they could have on the future could prove to be substantial.

Let's take a look… Shall we?

Increase Tony Pollard's Workload

It's time for the Dallas Cowboys to quit basing playing time on pay and start basing it on production, at least as far as the position is concerned. Anyone with a brain can see is clearly outperforming this season. No. 20 has without a doubt been the more elusive and explosive of the two and it's time his workload reflects that. I'd personally like to see more of an even RB timeshare between Zeke and TP coming out of the bye week and the rest of the season for that matter.

Start Looking for Mike Nolan's Replacement

's has been performing better the last few weeks, but that doesn't excuse the fact they've been one of the worst units to step foot on the field in the of the league the rest of the time. Firing Nolan now would be a bit extreme, but the bye week provides the perfect opportunity to do so if that's the direction the Dallas Cowboys want to go. They could easily turn things over to to find out if he's a better long-term solution or start the process of looking into outside options to pursue in the .

Jumpstart Evaluation Process for the Future

Coming out of the bye week I'd really like to see the Dallas Cowboys start giving more playing time to a few players who could be more in their future plans. The remainder of the season provides the perfect opportunity to get some game film on players like rookies Reggie Robinson and , both of which could be significant contributors next season. I'd also like to see inserted at and moved to . Not only do I think that's their best starting five, but also provides a chance to evaluate McGovern more.

What bye week adjustments would you like to see the Dallas Cowboys make?
